for all the cows

Hi everyone!

Last weekend I saw Toto perform live in Amsterdam, and it was awesome! Seriously guys, that band has been around for 35 years now and they still kick so much booty; if they perform anywhere near you I highly recommend you go and check them out.
But anyway, because the concert was in Amsterdam and I live a couple of hours away, I stayed over at my dad’s place (he lives a lot closer). My dad’s girlfriend is crocheting like a mad-women these days, and she is all about the amigurumis. Check out what she gave me right before I went home!

Coolest. Cow. Ever. How adorably cute are those udders? And she’s mooching on some grass, just minder her own business, while hanging out with a milk can :) Thanks Ella, I love her!

I’m currently working on another Noro bag. No, I don’t swim in cash; I just had all these squares left over from the last Noro bag I made ;) Together they formed the perfect eclectic mix of colours, and with 17 squares this bag is slightly smaller than the other one (which had 24 squares). I will embellish and beautify this bag like I did before; this is what it looks like right now.

I’m planning on doing an elaborate tutorial on how to make the squares, how to crochet them together, and how to add a lining. If you’re interested in reading about that, of course :)

I’m off working on that and all my other WIPs while checking out this month’s Simply Crochet; did you spot my interview? :)

  7. Hi there I am Angela from Oklahoma. I just finished bag made just like this in a crochet a long on Facebook! I love the ridges around each square I thought I was doing mine wrong, I was told to go through back loops when joining them, Ill do it on my next bag with prettier colors and see the differences. I am a beginner crocheter. Need all the tips and tricks I can find. Love how it turned out! Since it was a mystery crochet a long I had no idea what I was making so I chose two colors I dont use a lot orange and black, had I seen yours first and seen how cute it could be with prettier yarn I would have went shopping for yarn! LOL! Love this bag! This is my first time to your blog i came here via a Facebook posting about your adorable cow!
