I originally posted this in the Crochet a long (Granny a month for August), but I realized that unless people were following the CAL no one would see it. So I've posted it here. If this is against any rules, let me know and I will remove it
Thanks, Kate. *drum roll please*I HAVE SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED MY PROJECT!!!!
This is the bird I was making, he goes by the name Pyoro and he is from a Wario Ware game called Birds and Beans
He's absolutely adorable, and I was making a blanket for my boyfriend Marc's brother Ryan. I knew he loved Pyoro, but I suspect he might love the blanket even more.
I used all Red Heart, since I was on a two-month road trip with my boyfriend. We traveled 16, 000km (or 10, 000 mi) this summer, and have seen every state except 12 and 7 provinces. So, I had a lot of free time, and had to ensure that the yarn I chose would be universally available. I used a 6.00mm hook.
Now, here are some action shots (I just noticed that I didn't attach one of the yellow squares on the beak, but I really wanted to show you guys I did it!) It will be fixed in a matter of minutes!Size comparison to the new ridiculously large DSiXL

So, I guess now I have a few days to let my fingers and wrists recover from the insane amount of crocheting I feel like I've done the last month. See you next month, hookers!
