Apparently word got out about me taking crochet requests. I was asked to make Hobbes from this pattern by my friend Elyse. It's from the same site as Eve.
At first I tried to get a picture of myself with Hobbes to show how huggable he is... but my sister wasn't here to help me. Instead all I got were really funny picture where I'm hovering, making faces, or blurring into another dimension. All cool abilities of mine. Oh man though, this guy took forever and I have no idea why. Also; so many stripes! He's a combination of Red Heart: Super Saver and I Love This Yarn... yarns... made with a g-hook and little felt scraps for eyes/nose/headstripes. I also had a nice time learning how to crochet an ellipse... an oval? I'd done it before but had no idea what was going on. The pattern has lovely instructions.
Fun Fact: I had about a foot left of black yarn when I'd finished this project. It was a close call!
