Scarecrow & Old Ripple


I spent ALL DAY yesterday making him (9 hours)!  He is totally worth it.  I love him.


I got the pattern HERE.

WildAboutColor had a giveaway and was giving away two that she had made.  When I didn't win, I knew I had to make one of my own.  He makes me happy.  I want to make a girlfriend for him, but I think I'll wait awhile.  I'm not up to a 9-hour project again so soon.  Maybe I'll just make her a little bit at a time instead of having another crochet marathon.  I can see her in my head with a cute skirt instead of the jeans and ponytails sticking out of her hat.



I took out the ripple blanket I made a couple of years ago and put it on the bed last night.  I had forgotten it was big enough to cover the bed.  



Ain't it cool?
It's Lucy's pattern from Attic 24.
All Red Heart yarn.
(Before I discovered H.L. I Love This Yarn)
I named it Dreamweaver.
What a dork!

See ya...

  9. He is just the cutest. I will have to give him a go to. But, I can't wait to see his partner too. OK, so I've been a daytime DREAMSLAYER all day today. Two really really long naps. Guess who is going to be up alllllllllll night tonight. I forgot all about this one, still a A24 classic favorite pattern. Off to see what's up over in WWF. I've been playing soooo bad. But, then you all know I can't spell anyways, so what's the surprise.

  10. Your scarecrow turned out great. He is really cute. And your ripple looks pretty on your bed. Have a great week Pammy Sue. :-)

  11. Hey, I think Dreamweaver is a great name for your ripple blanket - especially since you have it on your bed !! You're not a dork. You did a wonderful job with that scarecrow - you must have worked non stop for those 9 hours - there seems to be quite a bit of work in him. I agree .. of course he needs a girlfriend but you appreciate things more when you have to wait .. so its a good idea to put off making her for a little while :)
