So, according to Sandra, the best way to solve the one-damn-skein problem is to make amigurumi.
So I did.
I give you Amigurumi Mouse Doorstop. Only mine isn't a doorstop. And to be honest, it doesn't look much like a mouse.
The face of a cartoon, nose of a rat, ears of a koala and the body of those plastic eggs inside Kinder surprise. And a bit asymmetrical too. A Mousekoalarat only a mother could love. Which I kind of do.
I also fiddled a bit with my blog look. Don't worry, that header is not going to stay up there for long.
