My very 1st Amigurumi!

I finished my first amigurumi today! I'm so excited. I'm not very experienced at crochet so it's not perfect by any means, but he's cute and he makes me happy. I am nerdy enough that I decided I could change the pattern just a little. I used a Lion Brand Yarn pattern and it was very easy. My step-mom, Thalia, who I will refer to as Mom T, was very helpful in getting me started. Also I found this really great video tutorial about crochet and Amigurumi at Hook & Needles. Instead of going all the way around the bottom half in white, I decided to do a color change in the front on every row. This may not have been the best way for me to go about this so if you have a better way or any advice, please, please, please, let me know. I've found little Guster a good home, my honey Matt has already adopted him. I can't wait to show you my next project and I'd love to see yours, so drop me a link!
