Amazon: What Is It?

Is it a river?

Is it a ginormous online bookseller?

Is it a mid-size Volvo produced between 1956 and 1970?

Is it the largest rainforest in the whole entire world that is totally in danger of losing its biodiversity due to the massive deforestation taking place and the vegetative carbon release that could accelerate global warming and totally wipe out all the baby polar bears?

Yes. It is all those things. But it is also an adorable female warrior!

So cute! (She looks just like me!)

But don't let the cuteness fool you. She broke this brick so hard the other half disintegrated. Let's see Chuck Norris do THAT!

She climbed this tree with no arms and still kept her spear in her loincloth. Impressive moves, this one.

Pattern is Amazon from Creepy Cute Crochet, by Christen Haden. I used the recommended Lion Brand Cotton Ease and a 3.50mm hook. She has button eyes and a Fimo clay spear. (How fun is it to make a wee spear for a tiny, adorable, yet ferocious Amazon warrior? SO fun.)

Anybody else wonder what (or who) she's storing in that pit?

She's so cute!!! And ferocious. All at the same time.

But even more notable, she's CROCHETED. See, crocheting isn't all bad. It produced your cute little warrior woman.

Oh god I think I just melted from the adorability.

She is crazy cute! And I do mean crazy like a fox.

Aren't you worried she'll turn on you and spear you to death in your sleep? Or at least poke you until you get a little bruise?
