More amigurumis and a crochet frenzie

I can't help loving the amigurumis!! Here are some more finds off Folksy:

I have also completed another of my own:
This is Teddington Bear. He had a little mishap at the seaside!!! hahaha. He is now for sale at Pipinopolis at Folksy. I've started another straight away, I think this one will be a girl, I have some lovely scrap fabric for a dress! On the topic of crochet, I'm trying to cover my old Klobo sofa, which is getting grubby now, and am loving the idea of covering it with granny squares. So I have made a start on some using this tutorial at Crochet with Raymond. Have a look at Alice's other tutorials, she makes some lovely tea cosies! I am hoping I don't lose patience making these and actually finish it! The sofa will then go into my workroom as Mr thinks it'll be too girly for the living room!

Here are some other finds of granny square covered things:

 Ok, I'll leave my obsessions here for now! But, has anyone else got any crochet covered things they'd like to share? I'd love to see them.

Your teddybear is adorable, and I love the granny squares idea. I've been toying with buying a mini one for my dollhouse and story vignettes--they're super fun!

How sweet! I ♥ amigurumi!! I'm still trying to do it nice, but i'm lefthanded, so it always look different than normal :P

Guys, keep crocheting! you all make such wondeful things!

I'd love to wake up one day to a crochet bombed town! or knit bombed even!ahh..a girl can dream!

I have been toying with the idea of a tiny granny square throw, the bear's ice cream top was all crochet but a bit hit and miss as I didn't know where my hook was going!! lol!
