Just finished a doll of Hermes Conrad from the extremely awesome scifi comedy Futurama!
Pictures first; essay below:
I recently fell in love with this show, and now I'm planning to do the entire Planet Express crew! I started with Hermes last night since I had most of the colours I needed on-hand -- had to run out for more yarn today XD;; He's about 8 inches tall, crocheted with a 3.5mm hook and 8ply acrylic yarn, with 9mm eyes (though I think I should have used a smaller size? Those are some glasses, man. '_____')
I've been crocheting for a couple of months, but this is the first project I've actually felt comfortable sharing with other crafters. I'd really like feedback on how to improve! I'm not entirely satisfied with his jacket front and my colour changes are mortifying (hence the convenient jacket). I just can't seem to get the jogless stripes seen here: http://needlenoodles.com/home/node/139 @_____@
Thanks for looking! (This is also my first post here, so hi everyone! :3)
