Introduction: Amigurumi and the Perils of Deep Sea Diving

About: Hi! I dream of someday becoming a mad scientist. …or a llama farmer. …or a mad llama scientist. For now, I craft and write patterns. … It could be said that I pursue my goals by odd means. :)

Follow along as our intrepid deep sea diver discovers the dangers lurking in the deep.

All items were made and designed by me using my Clover Soft Touch US Size E (3.5 mm) hook, and stuffed using polyester fiberfill.  Some of the crochet patterns which I used here are available online, and I have included links where applicable.  Some patterns have not yet been released.  :)

Also, because I am exceedingly lazy, the speech bubbles were made using a tool available here: http://wigflip.com/ds/

    Captain Nemo was never so appealing.  Very cool.

    As soon as the pattern is available, I will be sticking a copy to the lid of Kitewife's workbox as a very large hint.
