Yes... I finished a project. I probably should have warned you. Let you sit down first. (well, you're at the computer, you're probably sitting anyway)
You know Animal, right? Surely you do. If not... get out from under your rock. Even *I* know Animal. But, here's a video to refresh.... The Muppets do The Bohemian Rhapsody. Animal is the best part. MOMMA!!!!
I know I shared before about the pattern I bought for an Animal hat. I decided to just do it. I have a bunch of unfinished projects, but I really wanted to do this. So I did. It was so much fun. There's probably much to be interpreted by the fact that I got a kick out of crocheting chains and spiked collars, but I did. Want to see him?
He's so funny! Of course, I can critique several things about it, but still... I love him.
The pattern was great. If I ever make another one, I'd probably use a bigger hook for the gray collar... it's way tighter than the rest of the hat on my head because it's single crochet and the rest is half-double. And use a yarn with more pink in it for the hair. But man, I love that thing. It makes me want to improvise other Muppets. Like Beaker or Janice (the girl from the band). I could do the whole band. Or even make a big amigurumi Animal. That would be awesome!
All I needed was the right project to get me going again, I guess...
I've already started another project, too. It's not as exciting. I promised the girls some Christmas-themed beanies. I also need to post pictures from last weekend's Color Run. I haven't forgotten, just got too excited about this to take the time to blog. =) Stay tuned....
