that lion is great. and of course i covet the hat, even though i'm a cancer. i love all toques, and that just looks awesome. i'm sad my sign is 69, because there's no way i could wear a toque with a 69 on it in front of my group of guy friends without getting laughed out of the room. but the leo symbol is great!
So this is the stuff I sent to Kaymkay. She received a while ago so I thought I'd post pics. I made her a leo hat, a lion stuffie, and a pair of jade monkey earrings. Sorry about the last pic, but its the best one I have. You can kinda tell what they are, right?
Sad story: the guy I gave him to, the hospital wouldn't let him have it in his room so he sent it home with his girlfriend and then I got it back from her and he was all messed up. Is mohawk was coming off and his mouth was gone and so was his sword. I know my friend didnt do it because he only had it for about five minutes and then she had it for a couple days. I seriously don't know what to think.
This is a tweaked pattern from "creepy cute crochet". I've made him for a friend who is in the hospital right now. I added a crest to the helmet and messed around with the cape a little bit, to make him look like the main character from 300. I'm pretty happy with how he turned out, except for the face.
The patterns in the book were written kinda confusing, but I got it eventually.
