I'll admit it.

I want to learn to crochet just so that I can make armies upon armies of little bunny amigurumi.

Can you even imagine?

I'd be bloody unstoppable. I'd be foisting the things on anybody and everybody. Gifting cute to the world in industrial quantities. People would fear for the parts of their brains that haven't yet been overcome by CuteOverload.

Edit: Also, MMMMM ART NOUVEAU. *covets*

Would you be willing to make my Mommy an amigurumi owl & me some anthropomorphic amigurumi cacti (they're likely the only plants I can keep alive) or maybe sushi???

If so, I'd totally be willing to help fund your learning. ;)

Of course I'd make her/you those things! The owls make me laugh.

Learning is on my to-do list for the next couple of months (so was joining a group exercise class, which I've done, and so is dabbling in painting, which is FAR more expensive than crochet so the crochet comes first). I'm not sure where to start looking into it, but I WILL at some point soon, and I'll updatecha.

*giggles*

Knitting & crocheting is so hipster right now. If you were here, in Toronto, you could go to classes at The Knit Cafe, or any number of other too cool for words locations within a 5 block walk of my workplace...

Yeh, I know... There are hipsters in Edmonton, maybe I will need to go find some? I mean, I live a few block from Whyte. Maybe I'll just sit in the Second Cup until I notice somebody doing it and then ambush them.

I suck at learning from books but I'm sure I could do it that way, too, with some effort.

Maybe I will post to the Edmonton community about it.

That seems as good a place as any to start.
Of course, if there's a Michaels anywhere near you, they likely offer classes...

or my house. *cough*

[@ jo] crochet yields finished products exponentially faster than knitting. sooo immediately satisfying. mm mm good. you'll be poppin' em faster than korean rice cake machines with just a basic stitch.

I definitely need it to be immediately satisfying. So much of what I'm doing in school, I'm doing because I'm promised satisfaction at some point waaaaaay down the road.

Those rice cakes look like projectile weapons. Is there anything to stop them from hitting people?!

True fact: Art Nouveau exists to make me wish I was a squillionaire.

Cha!

It's insane. I dig all that flowy wonderfulness SO MUCH. It makes some part of my brain very, very happy. My heart gets all tingly. If I ever end up a squillionare, I'm going to have the most sinewy, flowy house imaginable built.
