Did I just say that? Well, for St. Valentine’s Day, I offer up these amigurumi-style hearts I’ve designed. I hope to have an Instructable up in the next day or so and will post the pattern here, as well.
Happy St. Valentine’s Day! Enjoy!
Update: The instructable mentioned above is posted here and it’s accompanying slide show posted here on Instructables.com. Both were entered in the Valentine’s Day contest and the Lion Brand Yarn contest. No luck in either, but it was still a fun project.

Since the mouse I’ve been playing around with making crocheted amigurumi. Here is an octopus, a turtle, and a chick thing that I’ve made. The octopus is from Lion Brand Yarn‘s catalog of free patterns (http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/70588AD.html). You might need to register with Lion Brand’s site to view the pattern. The other two, the turtle and the chick are my own creations. The turtle is the first amigurumi I came up with. The design didn’t come out as I had hoped–I was looking for a more elongated shell. Once I figure out the technique, I’ll post the pattern. The chick, I think, came out pretty cute and the form looks like it will be fun to explore for other critters. I used Caron’s Simply Soft in light blue for the octopus and in lemonade and mango for the chick. The turtle was done using Bernat Satin Sport in taupe and Lion Brand Yarn Micro Spun in leaf.
