Kouta: What if I stand on one leg and hold my breath?

While watching a little Spirited Away last night this little project started to happen. Again I was in one of those weird “I want to knit some thing insanely silly” moods. Grabbing some Shetland webbing and some 1mm sized needles this is what came out.

This was how far I got after watching the movie. A semi mindless knit but those teeny legs were killer.

For those not familiar with the neemo dolls this photo was taken to show the size of the scarf. I can’t decide if it’s teddy enough or a bit too rodent. The Mr thinks it’s the ears while I think it’s the eyes. Either way this is just a prototype and a simple fix. I really want to knit these in all sizes now.

Azone announced on their twitter that the 16th was officially Yuuta’s birthday. So to all those little Yuutas out there, Happy Birthday!

majokko shop giveaway

Littlebearries over at The Majokko Shop is having one of the cutest giveaways at the moment. Because this year is her web site’s 2nd year anniversary and the fact that she was lucky enough to get several pairs of the Azone Gashapon Machine exclusive pantie packs, she is randomly giving away a few pairs for free! You can only get these in the gashapon machines at Azone stores in Japan. I so want a set for my silly pair. (Make sure to click the image above to go directly to the giveaway)

Yuuta and Kouta would like to wish everyone a Happy New Years! I hope everyone had a lovely holiday this year. I had a great one myself. It was loads more productive that I had expected. I got to spend a lot of time with the Mr and my family and pretty much over ate everyday I was off…. Meh, that is what New Years resolutions are for, right?! After a week long vacation I’m heading back to work starting tomorrow. I had a very good 2013 and I look forward to 2014. I’m going to work on being more productive and creative this year.
Before I end this though…

Due to the craziness that was New Years I almost forgot that yesterday was Tsuyoshi third anniversary here in the amu house. For one to have the nerve to officially break my long running “No YoSD” rule this little guy has been way more fun than expected. Thanks for the adventurous years little kuma. Let wish for many more.


Playing and changing the neemos last night I saw that the shorts that Littlebearries gave me had working pockets. After having Kouta give them a try sassy Kouta was made. Somehow I managed to get him to stand with one foot flat and the other on it’s toes. These Neemo boys surprise me some times.


Doll people are good people.

I met the lovely Littlebearies through one of favorite places, instagram. In case people do not know she has a wonderful site called The Majokko Shop. If there was anything you needed to know or just simply wanted to keep up on Pure Neemo news I can not recommend her site enough. Loads of wonderful photos, product reviews and even interview with other collectors and artist in the hobby. Her own collection of cutie Neemos is worth the visit alone. You can also check out her lovely photos on her flickr page.
Heather was super helpful when I would hound ask her various question on size and clothes. She had made an offer to send Yuuta a few items to help build his wardrobe. Feeling ever so grateful, I had sent her one of my prototype neemo sized mohair sweaters as a thank you for all her help and for her girls to try out. Yuuta and Kouta got more than they both expected. Not only did they get new clothes but everything they would ever need to help celebrate the holiday season. A lovely holiday tree and ornaments from Blinkydoll’s Boutique , loads of wrapped goodies and a new pet bunny which the boys are still in the process of naming.

The package also included tiny neemo sized holiday cards made by Heather herself. … Look at those envelopes! So teeny!
These boys are ready to put on some pjs, heat some hot cocoa and enjoy their holiday season.
Thank you again Littlebearies!


Two Yuutas in contrasting sweaters. Actually the little guy on the left is Yuuta’s new friend Kouta.

Kouta is a Magic Boy of Moonlight Yuuta that I picked up at Mandarake. Ebay prices were just insane for this boy but Mandarake sold him for just a hair over his original cost. This was my second time buying from them. Great to deal with and fast. Would purchase from them again in a heart beat.
