Hey everybody, meet Hobbes.
Yay! I finally finished! I am doing a little happy dance! So is Hobbes, in fact...
I am oh so very glad I finished this, for oh so many reasons! I am very glad I made it, and I feel my friend will enjoy it. The body was pretty easy but the head I am pretty proud of (even if I still think it's a little too big). I ended up doing it in the round all orange until I got to the muzzle, and then I stitched on (cross-stitched actually) the stripes. I'm sure there's probably a better way out there to do it, but I think this worked well.
He's all nice and floppy like I feel the "real" Hobbes would be, and he's plenty cuddly. Not that I imagine my adult male friend will be doing much cuddling, but still. It counts in theory.
Now it's time to tackle my next project, another blanket. I am going to use my giganto-hook for this one in order to save on time and sanity. It makes for a quickly worked project and though it's a little looser weave, it comes out very soft. I'll keep you updated on that one. Also, I think I still have a few "archived" projects to share with you as well.
In the meantime, enjoy your weeks. Happy crocheting and existing to you all!
(Mr. Picasso Pants wishes Hobbes could stay, but he understands he's going to a good home, and he'll probably get to visit him often enough.)
