Haha.  He's fun!  Reminds me of those Ugly Dolls.  He's not ugly, though.  That's the brand name.  Anyway, he's really cool!!   Cool

He's really cute. The yarn goes good together and doesn't even look like odds and ends!

Good Job!

cool- thanks!! Smiley
for his legs, i worked his body in one piece from the head down, then where it came to his legs, i figured out how wide i wanted them, divided his body in half up the middle(leaving a few stitches free in the middle on both the front & back for stuffing him), and started working the halves in rows back & forth, 1 leg at a time, then after about 5 rows, joining into a ring & continuing down to the bottom. i hope that makes sense...!?

That is soooooooo awesome. it's so cute, the shape and hair remind me of the fraggle rock characters. I don't really understand how you described doing the legs, but crochet is easy enough to stop and start and make it look good. i love the colors too. i'm going to make myself one with my extra yarn!

and i act like a child, and i'm immature,
and i'm filled with doubt, and i'm insecure.
sometimes it creeps up on me,
and before i know it i'm lost at sea.
but no matter how far i row,
i always find my way back home.
but i don't know what i've been waiting for...
