More Seriously Cute Crocheted Critters...

Happy Sunday to you! We have been bone-chillingly cold today, but that's okay, I spent a goodly portion of the day crocheting. I think we were close to 50 yesterday and today the high was in the teens. We also got about 2-3 inches of snow. Brrrr.

I finished the penguin yesterday, but just took his picture. I'm calling him Pingu, after the funny character on Sprout(kids' channel that we get via Directv. My girls think their friend will really like him.100_5298

He's about the same size as the doggie I made, which I incorrectly said was about 7 inches long. I actually measured him and he is really 9 inches long (I crochet a little bigger than the pattern calls for, but with these critters, I don't think it much matters).

I was able to find the size of eyes that I needed yesterday when I went to that craft store. But, I had the head of this guy finished on Thursday, so he's got the smaller eyes. I have plenty of eyes and suspect there will be more cuteness to come. These are surprisingly addictive to create!

And, per Jessica's request, I give you Cheepy, her little chick, complete with the egg she arrived in.

The egg measures 3 1/2 inches and Cheepy measures 2 1/2 inches. I have a feeling before long, we'll have a "clutch" of chicks as both girls have taken turns playing with her this afternoon. Oh and she fits quite nicely in an egg carton.



That's about it from here for now. I'm still working on other projects and will share as I complete them.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a great start to your week!


PS-Kathi, if you are reading this...I sent you and email yesterday and am not sure if you've been super busy like me, or if it got plunked in your junk mail. I'd love an answer to the question I asked in it. Wink Thanks!

Your crocheted critters are so adorable!!!! You definitely are a woman of many talents. The scarves and ponchos are awesome too. Too bad it's not cold enough here for anything like that. Miss you!

Kari said...

Adorable!! And again, I can't pick a favorite. You might get a kick out of knowing that you have given me reason to pause in the needlework section at WalMart. They have needles for knitting and hooks for crocheting but no yarn . . . Figure that one out. LOL.
