Amigurumi Mermaid

Originally uploaded by parmeters

I quickly made this mermaid for my niece this weekend. It was a bit of a rush job, but I really wanted to finish it before we left town. Besides, she's 4, so she didn't even notice that the hair was on crooked. She absolutely loved it.

Dalek amigurumi finished!

Originally uploaded by parmeters
Not super happy with my Dalek, but it was my first one. Is it still amigurumi when it's 9 inches tall? I'll try another one that has the (hopefully) correct proportions and isn't quite so lumpy. Maybe smaller, too.

These are the pics from our trip to the zoo & aquarium a couple of weeks ago. I haven't deleted the bad ones or anything yet. The kids had a blast, though the train between the zoo and aquarium was super slow. It was a pretty nice day until the last 15 minutes or so when the wind picked up. For some reason, many of the animals were given cardboard food boxes (with food inside? who knows) to play with, so there was a LOT of ripped-up cardboard everywhere that looked kind of trashy. It was still a fun, if exhausting, day. I really had to resist the urge to touch the manta rays at the aquarium.
