If you listen to my podcast, then you'll probably know what this is. Lately I've taken to crochet and decided to try my had at amigurumi (lots of links on amigurumi over at Stitch-Cast episode 6 since I went on and on about it!)
At any rate, I started this amineko (crochet cat -- pattern here) using dk weight yarn and a little crochet hook and it was just too small. Lots of people say they have been using good ol' Red Heart and having fab result, but I didn't have any of that in the stash. I did however have some Encore worsted weight, so that's what I'm using. It's working out much better and I actually got halfway through the noggin' while sitting down for a wee bit of crafting time last night.
In unrelated news, it's climbing up to 90 degrees here and my air conditioning is on the fritz. The repairman says he *may* get here today -- he may get here Monday. (I'm one of those people who has been know to faint -- yes, actually lose consciousness -- in the heat. Wish me luck!)
