When I saw the BombOmb Crochet Amigurumi, I got extremely excited. I knew that I had the perfect colors in my remnant stash to whip up this little creature. I chose to use a F hook because that is what I've been using with KnitPicks WOTA. I figured this was a good project to use some some of the remnants I have laying around. The project consumed 7 g of Black (coal), 3 g of Grey (mist), and 3 g of yellow (color name unknown.)
This BobOmb is one of my first crochet amigurumi projects. I am REALLY noticing that this is much slower than if I were knitting the sphere. A knit stitch in this yarn is approximately the same size as a SC. Of course, I think that the crochet fabric is a better texture for this toy and that it will be worth it in the end. (I Hope.)
I'm also noticing that I'm getting a blister or small irritation on the middle finger of my left hand. This part of my finger keeps rubbing against the crochet project, something that never happens while knitting.
I did a slightly stupid thing where I sewed the cap onto the bomb before sewing on the fuse. Next time, Secure the fuse to the cap first!
Unfortunately because of the way I sewed the feet on, it cannot stand unattended. However, this is intended as an ornament so it hangs perfectly!
