Thank you Summersea -- and nice to meet you! What's summer hols for, if not slothing about and relaxing, eh? I am glad you spent a portion of yours reading my journal, lol. As for the NPT -- gosh, check OldFishLady and her tanks, she is a fountain of wisdom for NPT's. They really are not that hard, you know, if you start out with the right materials and lots of stem plants (lots!). My own needs an overhaul, that the one with the bajillion trumpet snails in it, so maybe I'll need to make a new wishlist for that!
BLT!!!! Gosh, good to see you (so to speak, ha)! Thank you, and yes, fingers crossed about Tinkerbell. She's really become part of our home now.. I think it's almost a year since I first heard that strange little tink-tink-tink in the yard at night. And I now consider it my personal mission in life to show you the art of amigurumi.
Your mission for today, should you accept it, is to look up "how to make a magic ring" on youtube.
No, it's not a Harry Potter thing. :B It's the basic starter stitch for working in the round, for heads and such, so you don't end up with little holey gaps in the middle. :D
No, this journal will not self-destruct in 30 seconds. But I might, if I don't get some coffee into me. Let me know when you've perfected the magic ring, and I'll show you some wonderful starter patterns. :>
