This is very different from the type of crochet patterns I am usually drawn to. All the surface work/layers are new to me. I am having fun with it. I am a little disappointed with the size. Borders are to start next and use bunches of yarn. I hope it is a wide boarder.

Noah requested and approved!
I love when the kids request things for me to make. This one was fun and challenging. It is the Zeekeeper from Mario and Luigi's Dream Team. I made him up as I went along, except for the basic bowling pin shape for the body. The body shape was from 50 yards of Fun by Rebecca Danger.
The body was knit. The bands of feathers around body were crochet directly to the body. The wings were knit with a shell edging and individually knit feathers. The legs are i-cord with crochet feet. The eyes, beak and plumes were crochet. The third central eye which is closed was created by sculpting\stitching the body base. The leg striping and eye pupils are embroidered.

I love how the colors of this are working out. I was worried that using the leftovers from Perry the Platypus would make for a not so pretty afghan.
My youngest son has requested a toy based on a character from Mario and Luigi's Dream Team. It is a Bird called the Zeekeeper.

Finished today but records show I started weaving it 34 weeks ago...
What was I waiting for? I love it!
I was worried I had used the wrong size heddle on the loom and was debating unweaving the 10 inches I had started and switching heddles. But I decided to just keep going today. I went pretty fast once I got started again.

I have been wanting to knit this for a long time now. I slowly purchased the pattern, yarn and beads needed over the last year. I special ordered the 1600 yard skein of yarn. It has been enjoyable to knit on so far. I will be taking my time and being careful to avoid mistakes.
