Amigurumi: Crawly caterpillar

My first Amigurumi... a caterpillar! Learned this new skill from teacher Amy of Hooked. Sort of easy to make but require loads of patience... a must-have for anything handmade with love!

From Wikipedia: Amigurumi (編みぐるみ?, lit. crocheted or knitted stuffed toy) is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures. The word is derived from a combination of the Japanese words ami, meaning crocheted or knitted, and nuigurumi, meaning stuffed doll. Amigurumi are typically animals, but can include artistic renderings or inanimate objects endowed with anthropomorphic features, as is typical in Japanese culture.
First look... headache already...
Tada! The finished project!
Ain't my caterpillar cute??? Anyway, it was totally satisfying once completed but still need a lot of practice to perfect the skill. Have been Googling for more easy dolls to practice but can't decide on which one as they are all so adorable!!!
