After reading this craftster post yesterday I as inspired to follow the pattern and make something of my own. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=334739.0
I have never crocheted a square thing before and I found the effect really pleasing and making the legs as part of the body was a new concept to me as well as normally I sew limbs on afterwards, but anyway, onto the pictures.
This is Rigby. Rigby is a bit of a loser really, he worked at a small office firm being an errand dog, fetching paperwork, making tea, he spent most of his working day at the photocopier machine where he daydreamed about being someplace better, and being someone special. He wanted to be in crufts as part of the working dogs events, doing the obstacle course, he wrote to crufts but they rejected him, as hes a bit on the podgy side. The same day he got the rejection letter he was also made redundant. This double whammy sent him over the edge.
Completely crazy and Determined to be someone special he decided he needed to be a superhero and fight crime so he phoned his only friend pete, (who's a squid) to be his trusted sidekick, Pete, worried about his friend, is more along for the ride to make sure Rigby doesnt accidentally injure himself. Rigby now refers to Pete as 'Billy the squid'
So thats Rigby, not much of a crime fighter, not much of an office worker, and now completely out of his tree. but at least he has good clean underpants. oh and the background star afghan is a baby blanket project im working on for my best friend. Its very bright. She'll never lose her baby whilst its wrapped up in that.
