Little acorn box


I found this cute acorn pattern awhile back but never got around to making it because I couldn't find the right yarn.
Decent yarn is REALLY hard to find here. There are NO yarn stores. Really makes it tough!
I finally just gave in and bought something from the local Hancock's. It is the yarn that Vanessa 'Wheel of Fortune" lady has out.
Not the right weight...not chunky either.....so it wasn't really as big as it was supposed to be. It still turned out cute and I love the colors.

If you would like to make your own, go visit Roman Sock. Her amigurumi ROCKS and many patterns, like this one, are FREE!

Since it wasn't as big as needed to store crocheting supplies in, I decided to make it into a little house for this cutie!

.......doesn't he look happy in his little home?



BTW, I purchased the squirrel pattern so I can't give it away.
But you can get the pattern yourself from June over at Planet June....it comes with 2 other forest critters....all just precious!
