Natashalh, Amigurumi has been popular for a few years. It has been only a couple of years since I've heard about it. It deserves is popularity, because they are quick and easy patterns that you can make in an evening. I like afghans and things, but I hate how long they take to finish. Thanks for commenting.

I hope so too, I have a bunch of projects I'm doing now and honestly I don't follow others patterns very well.. I can but I prefer to just wing it and I often make my own patterns. ^_^

Mama Kim, I do the same unless it is something I haven't tried before. It just seems easier to do it yourself. You'll have to share some of your patterns here.
