OKay, so this one took me FOREVER to finish.  three weeks and two days.  the pattern is entirely mine.  i was literally sitting there with a pen and paper and my yarn and hook and doing a row, staring at the thing critically for a bit, ripping out the row and redoing it...

This is my first failed attempt.  His head was too long and his leg too small...



here he is! HOMER!



He wants a DONUT!



HE GOT IT!



He wants a buzz cola too! (my boyfriend went up to dallas over the weekend and several seven-elevens around the US converted to a Kwik-E Mart for the month as a movie promo and he brought me back that buzz cola!)




Here's Homer, his donut and his cola...




So that's it for me!  i hope ya'll likes it.  =(^_^)=

I'll put up the pattern for him too whenever i get around to typing it up so yall can give him a try too if you crochet...

i'm gonna be crossposting him to whatthecraft.com and to the craftgrrl community on livejournal...

This is fantastic!!  My hubby would totally love this.  I looked it up and there's a Kwik-E-Mart near us.  Hopefully we can get some Duff beer soon.
