I just wanted to share with you this fabulous compilation of amigurumis! This expansive animal collection is the culmination of several years collaborative work between Joke Vermeiren and the designers whose work is featured in the Zoomigurumi series of books. I reckon if you’re an amigurumi enthusiast or just ‘amigurumi curious’ you’ll surely be inspired to pick up your hook and get making a zoo of your own with these cute critters to tempt you. Its full of beautiful quality photographs too, as you can see from Joke’s lovely montage below.
What’s really exciting is that all three Zoomigurumi books are available at a special price of £31.50 (52 USD) until the 22nd March 2014 (including shipping). Thats 45 original and fun designs and, if my maths is correct (reaches for idiot proof, jumbo sized calculator…) that’s a mere 70 pence (or $1.15) per pattern . Who could possibly resist? As an added bonus you get a PDF version of each book available to download as soon as payment clears. If you’re an impatient so and so, (like me!) you’ll be happy not to have to wait for the postman before you can start bringing you own amigurumi army to life.

I’m always excited to see my designs in an actual book, on an actual bookshelf, (or on the virtual bookshelves of Amazon), so I’d like to brag about it -just a little bit- by showing you some close-ups of my pattern contributions! And here they are…
Lulu and Lollo Lamb (Zoomigurumi 2)
Tom the Tiger (Zoomigurumi 2)
And Hedley the Hedgehog (Zoomigurumi 3)
Ok, I’ve stopped showing off now. Thanks for indulging me! Back to more pattern designing I think. I’ve got a badger as a work in progress at the moment but I wonder what animal to do next? Has anybody got any requests? I’m always open to suggestions
