I can’t believe it’s February already? where has the time gone. Luckily I was prepared and ready for our year challenge #amigurumicharityrun and had a new character made.
So which Amigurumi character is representing February’s charity? It’s SPIDERMAN!!!!
I made this Spiderman from my new crochet kit I got at Christmas, the kit is called Marvel Universe Crochet by Kati Gálusz. I used some high quality cotton yarn from Three Bears Yarn, Affection aran weight to be specific. They had the perfect colours to make him, I used Poppy Red and Nautical Blue. Apart from this all I needed is a little white felt for the eyes and some black embroidery thread (I used some cotton thread I had). Oh and I used my favourite Addi Swing Crochet hook, size 3.25mm. He measures almost 4 1/2 inches in height, and is a little taller than the pattern in the book due to the yarn used. I am really happy with the results and he was actually pretty quick to make too, I can highly recommend this great crochet kit!

This month we are raising for Support Dogs, it’s a great charity that helps those with a disability, epilepsy and autism. Those needing a disability assistance dog can have help to train their own pet dog which is a part of their charity we have always liked, in fact we had hoped to do this with me but unfortunately my health took a turn for the worst so travelling down to the centre was no longer an option. For more information check out their website, they are also on Twitter and Facebook.
Before I go, in case your a new viewer to my blog and don’t know what this challenge is about you can find out more here. It’s a collaboration I am doing with my husband and we are raising money for charity at the same time. Spiderman is really looking forward to helping out raising money for such a great charity, you even have a chance to win him at the end of the month as part of a raffle we hold during the last week of the month (I will do a blog post here about the raffle every month and the link to get tickets).
Thanks for your time and if your interested in helping to choose the next Amigurumi character for March then check out mine and my husband’s Facebook page tomorrow to vote, it will be open all weekend :).
