My husband is crazy about flying his remote control planes so when he asked me to crochet him a pilot for his new plane I was was super nervous because my husband occasionally has a bit too much faith in my crafting abilities.  After about 2 Sundays and 2 seasons of Stargate Atlantis on DVD (I know...we're geeks) Homer the pilot was finished and my husband was very happy with the result.  I couldn't use a pattern because he had to be a very specific size to fit in the cockpit properly but I also was too lazy to write down what I did which I'm smacking myself in the head for now  Undecided ...oh well.

Before the flight


Buckle up for safety


Ready for takeoff

That is AWESOME! Not such a big Simpsons fan myself, but you did a great job, especially for freehanding it!

Also, I love Atlantis. xD *nod* Totally do. Working my way through it before the new season starts in July!

That's excellent, I love it! He looks just perfect in the plane. And in the shot before getting into the cockpit, he looks kind of like he's reaching out for something... maybe a donut?  Tongue

Um, yeah, that totally freaking rocks. Rock on, babe, that looks so great. I especially love how accurate the curve of his beer belly is.
