Baby Whale Amigurumi

I’d like to wish everyone a Happy 2011 New Year, and what better way to start the new year than with a splash from a cute baby whale amigurumi?!

My inspiration for these baby whale amigurumis was actually me wanting a new cell phone charm (because I am totally obsessed with cute cell phone charms…I have a billion of them but I just can’t get enough! Just like how a girl can never have too many dresses, a girl can never have too many cell phone charms! At least, that’s what I like to think…). That, and I couldn’t wait to make something out of these really really thin yarns and miniature crochet hook I bought from Taiwan last time I was there. I don’t even know the hook size of the crochet needle. All it says is “6” but it is very small, so I doubt that means 6 mm, maybe 6 micrometers haha yeah right!

Crocheting with this 6 nm hook was pretty tough. It’s really hard to see the stitches because they really are microscopic! It almost felt like I was crocheting sewing thread. Yet, the small scale was necessary to make a cell phone charm. Regular worsted weight yarn crocheted with even the smallest size crochet hook of 2 mm would give me a humongous cell phone charm. I may like cell phone charms, but I’m not crazy enough to lug around a whole chain of critters! I try to keep things low maintenance.

This is what I came up with:

Then I started getting carried away about playing with colors and making couple charms!

After a hard day’s work of crocheting cute baby whale amigurumis, I picked up my Nintendo DS to play my usual bedtime games, and realized, “Hey!  I can use those charms for my DS too!”

Now, before I start sounding like an infomercial and claiming these baby whale amigurumis can be used as keychains, camera charms, purse charms, rearview mirror car charms (which they totally can!), and magic charms that can transform into a genie and grant you 4 wishes instead of 3 like those regular genies (which I’m pretty sure they can’t), I’ll stop.  Thanks for looking!
