I know I haven't shown much crochet stuff lately but I am still hooking along obsessively. Unfortunately my latest projects did not turn out as great as I had hoped so I ooooooohmed and aaaaaaaahd but in the end figured I should still show my failures. After all, they generally spurn me on to do better next time.
This is how my first Amigurumi project SHOULD have looked like

And now, I would like you to meet Pat, the PAThetic Penguin...
Not being funny, but the beak looks like a willy and when you a look at a penguin thinking that his willy sprouts from between his eyes, you just cannot take him seriously anymore....so I flung him across the room and announced that "I am not even going to bother with the hat. In the bin it will go".
And who ever saw a penguin with a freakin' belly button????
To add to my dramatic outburst, I threw my hook around for good measure which resulted in a frantic search afterwards, as it was my favourite hook.
Geez, I really need to lighten up when things go wrong!
But somehow Mr P fell in love with Pat, re-named him Poirot and adopted him immediately.
Oh well, I am sure it will only be a matter of time before I make another attempt at Amigurumi.
