Awwww the Alpaca

I made “Tuskegee the Walrus” and then had to do “Sherwin the Alpaca” from Stacey Trock’s “Crocheted Softies” book. But I wanted to do him in cool colors rather than “normal” colors. So I had this variagated blue yarn and was about to run out as I was making him REALLY loopy and I shortened his neck, changed his muzzle and eyes and gave him a belly button. He turned out better than I was expecting once I changed him. Too much variagated was too much so I toned him down with some lt blue on his muzzle and made his eyes the TBC way. He just needs hugged, don’t you think?
And then to top it all off Stacey wanted to use the picture of my Alpaca on her Ravelry page which is just so cool and flattering!!! Thanks Stacey.

My Favorite Critter – Baby Brown Monkey

Back in December I needed to make two monkeys for a co-worker for Christmas presents…didn’t have a pattern, was too frugle to buy one, etc. So I just started crocheting and this is what I came up with….I’ll post the Baby Brown Monkey pattern in late January. The banana is from a KTB Designs book on etsy.com and it totally makes the whole thing!!! I even gave him a belly button! The signature “TBC unraveled” look for him is on top of his little head. He’ll grown into his ears someday I’m sure. His main purpose right now is the LOVE for his banana that is ALL his. =)
