Amigurumi! Bah hum-crochet bug. That rabbit sucks hind leg, if you ask me. Annie et al hated the colors, and it was overstuffed and ugly as all get out. And the ears -- it was an exercise in crochet torture. It became a dog toy. Sigh. And I SO wanted to make it for the new baby.
On the other hand (or hook as the case may be) afghan/tunisian/african stitch is pretty cool and lots o' fun.....but do the tunisian simple stitch first. The others are a tad challenging. I'll post some pix tomorrow. And some good links for learning it.
