Amigurumi online course
One of the purposes that I made to myself this year was to learn to make amigurumi. I had no idea of crochet but I signed up for one of Gemma’s courses and now, though slowly I can make any amigurumi! I really recommend to everyone Gemma’s courses because are very educational and she explains everything really well, she is a professional educator!
Through her website I took the amigurumi online course and the final project was a very nice bear named Bruno. So going from zero to Bruno is not bad to begin with! Rocío, who is another pupil of the course, made a super cool video for Bruno that you can watch on her blog.
My Misio Reloaded
Since I had already started on the amigurumi world I was not afraid to join this summer the challenge of My Misio Reloaded proposed by Gemma on her blog. The intention of the project was to recreate a cat called Misio made by Madoka Muno, a Japanese woman who lives in Australia, who created it as her final project and that was selling it for a few years. Her idea was to recreate the life of Misio in photographs and document how we can create different stories with the same object depending on the place where we came from, our personal history, our habits …
So for a few weeks dozens of weavers gave Misio back to life thanks to Gemma, to Esther from L’Atelier de l’Obi and to Elisa from Srta. Pomelo who redesigned Misio’s pattern. It was very exciting!
Now Wasel Wasel is working on another project that is nothing but a CAL (Crochet Along) to weave together a new friend for Misio. It is Amineko, another japanese cat designed by Nekoyama.
The CAL will start next Monday the 28th, so if you want to join us to knit this CAL sign up on her website to follow all the steps and to create your Amineko, you won’t regret for sure!
