Sometimes it seems like I’ve been working on this sweet little guy forever, but I know it’s only been a little over two weeks. Now, when I say I’ve been working on him for two weeks, please do not think that I’ve spent every waking moment on him, every day for the past two weeks. I have been working on several projects in that time, along with normal everyday housework, and whatever goes along with whatever falls under the titles of ‘Mom”, ‘Wife’, and ‘Blogger’. Clint the Cowboy (pattern by Croc’s Betty) actually worked up pretty quickly.
You need to know that I did not work this pattern up exactly as written. This pattern works the doll up with clothes attached. I worked Clint up in Caron One Pound ‘Lace’ yarn. I did crochet underwear on him. The pattern does give you a way to make him with movable arms and legs. I used a button method instead, because I think it holds up longer. Once he was finished and put together, I worked on his outfit. I made him a shirt, jeans, a vest, chaps, boots and a cowboy hat.
I’m very happy with how he turned out. Now, lets all keep our fingers crossed that he wins a ribbon in the Montgomery County Fair, because he has been entered!
We have a wonderful couple in our church family that are going to have a baby. I worked up Adorable Mister Fox (pattern by Sharon Ojala) for their nursery, which is decorated in a ‘Woodlands’ theme. She loved him, and I’ll be working on a black bear for that nursery soon as well!
Lets not forget this little guy that I almost completely finished this week. The Unnamed Monster (pattern by Sharon Ojala) is a wonderful little treat. He reminds me of Carol (Moishe) from Where The Wild Things Are. This is one of my favorite projects so far. He’ll be another entry in the fair this weekend!
Ok, that’s enough for this week. I’ll have more next week I promise. I’ve got requests for a Dr. Who (#10), and a Black Bear!
