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.

Bruce the Walrus

So I was totally unmotivated to complete the fish and alpaca that I have in progress, so I started “Tuskegee the Walrus” from Stacey Trock’s Crocheted Softies book and it was very fast and fun to do. I used a wavy, very bulky yarn (identical to the monkey) just a different color and this was in light aqua and had a touch of lavender to it as well. Thus the reason that he’s quite big, about 12″ long. But I still like him. So my friend across the pond said that he should be named Bruce, therefore, he shall! =)
Stacey Trock was kind enough to include my walrus on her ravelry site!!!!
