My Mom's Amirgumi

My mom made all this stuff in the 70s when she was diagnosed with high blood pressure. She had to take potassium for medical reasons, but making these cute little animals also relaxed her. She was way ahead of her time!

First up, the Goose

Then the Mouse


Mr. Giraffe

looking very Lascaux cave painting...

Here's looking at YOU, kid...

The pig, made from panty hose

The other bunny

and the crocheted pig

Ta da!

Boy, she really was ahead of her time. Just think, she could have written the patterns back then, and she'd have had the jump on everyone! Especially love the giraffe!
