  7. Thanks for sharing…it’s a beautiful amigurumi..I’ll try to make it…^_^

  8. no way can this project be completed in 30 minutes!!

    And, what is this supposed to mean? Rnd 3: (sc, 2 sc) rep around.

    I take it to mean in round 3- single crochet then do 2 single crochets.

    I am wondering if it should read correctly thus:
    round 3: single crochet, then 2 single crochets together.

  9. I love it.
