I made myself a travel buddy for my trip to South America.  The vendors in Peru quite liked him.

Here he is overlooking Machu Picchu.

I hadn't crocheted in a while before making him, and I spent a few hours undoing the inevidable mistakes of a patternless project.  His ears and front legs are a little wonky, but I'm still fairly pleased.

Is that him in your avatar photo?  If so, he's very cute from the back end!

I also host at photobucket - it is so easy - you just upload and photobucket will give you the link for the picture for you to copy and paste.  There are a bunch of online free photo host services.  I think photobucket is probably up there in the most common ones... although a friend of mine swears that photobucket will drop your pictures for no apparant reason - I haven't heard of anyone else complaining about that though.

I used to use craftster for the ones here but I hated using their cyberspace when they offer so much ... my attempt at making things just a hair cheaper.  Probably doesn't make a drop in the bucket though.

I am collecting quilts, afghans & blankets for those that lost their homes.  Pm me!

He's cute from the front side too!  I'd love to see the turtles.  Wow...lucky you!

You're just missing the essential soundtrack to listen to while you crochet the next llama:



(I wish I could see the avatar pic closer up, coz that looks like one awsome crocheted llama-panorama! Roll Eyes)

Heh, I was thinking of the llama song too!

That is one fantastically lovely llama!
