Louie is complete! and he’s a giraffe!
Doesn’t he look adorable? Here’s a whole gallery full of them, made by different participants. The creativity is breathtaking.
I had so much fun and I can’t wait to be part of another mystery challenge.
Look! Louie has more parts.
I’ve been busy trying to finish poor ol’ Louie and I’ve managed to complete all of the necessary parts to reveal his true identity (if you haven’t already guessed).
I’ve had so much fun crocheting along and doing each mystery clue, that I forgot how tedious putting together something like this can be. A few minutes ago I was sewing the legs together and became a bit frustrated. Oh well, It’s too late to back down and besides, it’s looking cuter and cuter.
The deadline to enter this cute mystery creature into the challenge is May 6th. The winner will be randomly selected and will win a bag full of yarn and other goodies! How cool is that?!
I expressed this last detail to my husband and he said, “That’s what the winner gets? I thought they’d win money.”
“Honey, yarn is worth more than money.”
For all of the steps for this cute little creature visit The Crochet Crowd.
A few days ago I started the first part of the Crochet Crowd’s Mystery Challenge.
Last night I began and finished Week 2 ,which consists of 4 legs and a pair of ears. This is a very simple project and it’s so easy to follow Mikey’s tutorial. I’ve done my fair share of crocheted dolls. For a while I stopped because I noticed my wrists would hurt more when I would do amigurumi. After I finished these little parts, I went to bed with a bit of pain. It must be because I work my stitches tighter and thus put more pressure.
Take a look at what we got going so far.
Louie at Week 2. Hmm Giraffe? Hippo? Armadillo?
It’s been a while, but I have been very busy. A toddler and a 5 month old require a lot of attention. I wake up and I kid you not, I blink and it’s time for bed.
Every now and then I sit down and pick up my hook. I’ll be posting all of the projects I have been doing since my disappearance. So keep an eye out for those in the next couple of days.
This month I’ll be working on two projects. The first one is the Crochet Crowd’s Mystery Challenge. The next is an afghan challenge also from the Crochet Crowd.
I know I’m two weeks behind, but my plan is to catch up this week.
It just seems like so much fun, I couldn’t resist. I usually have to have an idea on what I’m going to create. I like to spend time on each project to draw it out, so to speak. I like to get a color scheme going, but I’ll have to trust it and just have fun. After all, anything made out of yarn is beautiful.
For this project I used a size G 4.0mm and the main color is Red Heart Super Saver in Light Grey.
So here’s week 1’s result
I have no idea what it is. So far it looks like an alien, but it could be anything. A giraffe, a hippo, a horse, a dinosaur. I’ll have to keep going to figure it out. For now, I’ll just call him Louie.
What do you think it is?
