Hi! My name is Penny. I just started knitting Dec of 2009. I started crocheting middle of last year. Pretty much taught myself how to do both by reading books and a little of watching youtube. Lately, I have started doing some amigurimi projects. For Christmas I made my neices a small teacup. I have also made at least two hamsters. My oldest daughter (12 soon to be 13) has asked me to make her a guinea pig like her pet, Chocolate. She also loves HALO and asked me to crochet her a plasma grenade-she calls it a sticky bomb. I have to figure out how to make ovals and balls. I am in the process of making my youngest daughter (age 6) a blanket. She has a very good eye for yarn and colors. She has mentioned that she would like to learn to crochet and knit. I would love to teach her but not sure how to go about it.
