EDIT: So, um, yeah....this is reeeeeee-dic-u-lus. My heart stopped.



And then last night it was on TV!!!!!!!!!!!!




Pattern now posted on my blog!
This is a direct link to the pattern on my blog---  http://craftyiscool.blogspot.com/2010/10/conan-blimp.html
I saw this huge squishy orange yarn and I had to make something Conan related.  Then I was thinking about this blimp.  Bingo!  I made a blimp!  I started this morning and finished this afternoon, and it went pretty fast since it's so bulky and I used an H hook.  My hand is aching from it anyway!  Letters are all felt.  It's at least 15" long thought I haven't measured it, and really heavy!  Hope you like it!!  Team Coco!!!!!!!
*This is as close as I'll get to the blimp since its not anywhere south at all and I'm in Austin Cheesy
