After the sweater, I needed a quick and fun project so I pulled out my Amigurumi knits book and knit a starfish!
I used a cheap acrylic yarn for the top half and some wool yarn that I spun (not very well…) myself for the bottom. It took me two days to finish and was pretty fun if maybe a bit repetitive. All in all, it was a nice break from having a big project to complete
