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 Smiley Thanks, Kate.

Smiley  Cheesy  Grin  Cool  Tongue

*drum roll please*

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 Smiley 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

Now, I will show you the sprite I used:

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!

Wow that is awesome. I love the little bird and I love ur boyfriends hair. I like guys with long hair lol especially if it's red.

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

Oh gosh, did you know this little bird is also in Smooth Moves, the Wii game? When you play every single micro-game, you unlock a game called "Pyoro-S"... and.... oh gosh, my housemates were ADDICTED TO IT. So I have about four friends who need this blanket now, ahah. Great job, he's so cute!
