The Wensleydale fleeces I sent to the mill to be spun into yarn are now back.  The yarns are so beautifully spun and have a nice sheen to them.  The colors are natural white and black/silver.  The natural white yarn is available in fingering 2 ply and aran 3 ply.  The black/silver yarn is aran 3 ply.  I have the yarns available for purchase in my Etsy shop.

Craftsy Crochet

I wanted to try to crochet amigurumi animals.  I have a couple of books for amigurumi but for some reason I could never figure out how to start with the magic ring.  I ended up finding some super simple directions for the magic ring in the book “Happy Hooker,” by Debbie Stoller.

I found an online class called “Amigurumi: Woodland Animals” by Stacy Trock on Craftsy.  The photo above is my first project from the class.  Now that I have the magic ring figured out, I feel confident to go on and crochet all the projects in my amigurumi books and finish the rest of my Craftsy class!
