The week sure went by quick. I had a lot more planned but didn't have the energy to do it. My hands are still sore from woodcarving, and so I've had to lay off the knitting and crocheting. I'm looking forward to the weekend. My daughter may visit. We'll see.

Pocket Monster Finger Puppet

On the bus I crocheted a cool monster finger puppet. I love his shock of red hair. I wanted to make another one in self striping yarn and as luck would have it I found a skein of my favorite self striping yarn at Michael's in the clearance bin for $2.00. So I got my wish. Then I found some great ribbon yarn and some Fun Fur at the dollar store next door, which probably came from some Walmart craft dept. that got the axe. I also got some tiny black buttons that will make great eyes. Now the buttons in the bead dept. were $2.99 but nearly identical buttons on the button aisle were $2.50, so it pays to look in various departments.
Looking forward to making more puppets soon. But it's bedtime now.
