My first amigurumi!  


Why a leek?

Fenglei loves this character:

which is the mascot for a voice synthesizing software called Vocaloid. This particular Vocaloid is named Hatsune Miku.

So somewhere along the line someone thought it would be a good idea to have Miku sing a polka while waving a stick of leek.

If you're really curious: http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/leekspin-loituma-girl

So then we saw this:

selling for $12.90 or something.

Naturally I announced "I can do that!" and promptly went to Daiso to get three balls of yarn and a crochet needle.

It turned out this thing needed less than two balls of yarn and half a pack of stuffing. It cost me less than $6.00. Now I have a floppy crocheted leek which Fenglei waves around ecstatically.

And that's the story behind this amigurumi leek.

LOL, so silly. XD

Great job with the leek! I have no idea what a leek is.

Fenglei should sing along.

A leek is a vegetable. :3

Oh yes! I know it under a very different name ("praz").

Cool!! =))

Don't worry, the word "leek" came late into my vocabulary too. Before that this was a "large spring onion". XD
