My task for this months Mos challenge, was learning how to crochet. All I can say is, it's a lot easier to read a Japanese crochet pattern, than it is an English one, and it wasn't half as much of a challenge as getting my kids fed, watered and dressed for school in the mornings.
This little chap was remarkably easy and quick to do.
He's about 3" high and the pattern came from here.

This is a small book with only 12 patterns in it, but the instructions are very clear with lots of photographs, and it's cheap. A good introduction to the wonderful world of amigurumi.
We are off to Cornwall for the weekend, staying in a caravan. Heavy rain is predicted.
Wish me luck.
