It's a rabbit, I suppose

One of my crafty-goals for this summer was learning how to crochet amigurumi.
I can crochet, I've learnt in my childhood, but I've never practiced this hobby constantly, so I have a lot of doubts when I try to crochet something.
So I decided to better myself making some amigurumi!

It's written by June Gillbank, the girl behind the blog PlanetJune.
I haven't finished to read it yet, but I can say it's really a good book for a newbie not only in amugurumi making but also in crochet.
It gives you all the basics you need to start, in details. Really a well-done and complete book, I'm very happy to have it in my home!

Some days ago I've asked to my aunt (who is really skilled in crochet) to follow me during the making of my first amigurumi. She gave me some good advices and the work (after a first disastrous attempt) went on easily.
I made my first amigurumi!
Yes! I made it! It's finished!
It's a rabbit!
Well, I suppose.
I haven't follow any pattern to make it.
I've crocheted leaving my hands go. I've increased and decreased my stitches when I thought it was right to do that and the result is this "rabbit".
The important thing isn't what kind of animal this strange red creature is; the important thing is I hade a lot of fun!!!
Probably a new addiction started... I'm already working on a little owl! :)
And I want to make also a mouse!

Some links
- a funny youtube video about June's book
- my talented aunt's crocheted bags
- this rabbit is red and its photo doesn't satisfy me: I need to read Elena's post "Why red is so difficult to photograph"
- to make this rabbit I used some cotton thread I've recycled with my aunt last may
