First FO of 2010

Here’s my first finished object of 2010 – finished on New Year’s Day, no less.
Meet Crabby, the Hermit Crab:

Pattern: Hermit Crab by Hansi Singh (In Amigurumi Knits book)
Yarn: Knit Picks Swish Worsted – various colors
Needles: US 5
Started: Dec 28, 2009
Finished: Jan 1, 2010

Modifications: none. Well, except for knitting the last row of the legs and chelipeds (it says to purl, but that seemed wrong to me).

He was a quick knit, although very fiddly. I am pleased with the result – it’s an ingenious pattern. One of the boys may get him once I’ve made another toy from the book. Sometimes they have trouble sharing. Sometimes I have trouble sharing, so neither one may get him when all is said and done! 🙂 Right now he’s guarding the bobbins on my lazy susan.

Happy Knitting everyone! I hope your 2010 is going well so far!!
