Amigurumi (Am-ee-gur-oom-ee) is the Japanese art of crocheting or knitting small creatures. The word derives from the Japanese words ami (meaning crocheted or knitted) and nuigurumi (meaning stuffed doll). There's a bunch of Amigurumi tutorials on the Web.
Ana Paula Rimoli, author of the book, Amigurumi World: Seriously Cute Crochet (which is a book I just ordered. Do I really need to begin another art endeavor?) - and host of Ana Paula's Amigurumi Patterns & Random Cuteness blog - offers fantastic, free tutorials. Ana has also written two other Amigurumi books.
So what do you think? Are you ready to Amigurumi?
