I don’t think I’ve mentioned before that I’ve got a younger brother Adam. Well one day he jokingly suggested that I ‘make’ him out of crochet sometime. Challenge accepted!!! I couldn’t resist! So last year for his birthday I surprised him with his own little mini me!
As my brother has been playing guitar forever and it’s his ultimate passion I knew that anything I made had to have a little instrument. Luckily I found the most fantastic guitar pattern on Ravelry; amieggs guitar by Clara Bayarri. The pattern provided the perfect finishing touch I was looking for.
Well my brother loved his little crochet doppelganger so much that he took him to work to sit on his desk…and here starts the real tale. You may have heard of the travelling gnome prank (as made famous in the film Amélie) well someone in my brother’s office decided to recreate the prank with Little Adam. My brother received a ransom note and then the pictures started to appear which he then shared with me.
He started off his travels in Greece…
Little Adam is becoming one seriously travelled and adventurous amigurumi! I’m completely living vicariously through his globe-trotting. Next he was going off to Dubai I believe – as I get the updates I’ll share his adventures with you. I’m really enjoying getting new pictures of his exploits. 😄
Until next time; keep calm and crochet on my friends xx
