When I awoke this morning, it was to a stiff breeze, so I knew that today would be a blustery crochet day, and while it meant it would be hard to take photos, it also meant that the light would be excellent.
I decided to pick up where I had left off with my second Hello Kitty crochet Pochacco. I had started working him in a bright turquoise yarn and had settled on accents of brown, peach, and yellow:
I needed to finish the head, weave in the end, stuff the body, attach it to the head, secure the feet, and crochet and attach a tail. All doable–as long as I did it.
By early afternoon, I had the head and body completed, and the little Turquoise Pochacco was patiently waiting for his back legs and a tail:
He waited patiently, because unfinished crochet projects don’t have a whole lot of say in when things get done, but he looked so patiently plaintive, that I got to work.
For some reason, try as I might, I could not get the feet on right, but just as I was about to give up, I finally got them at the correct angle, so I hurried and got the tail done while the crochet mojo was with me.
In no time, the new turquoise Pochacco was done:
and ready to join his friend light coral Pochacco in the breezy afternoon. Fortunately, there was a chair on the the patio large enough to seat them both:
But while the light coral Pochacco wanted to go in, the turquoise Pochacco wanted to sit out on a blustery crochet day and have his photo taken with a few more of his amigurumi friends while they enjoyed the breeze on a future great granny square blanket:
As lovely as today was, tomorrow also promises the same perfect mix of clouds, wind, and sunshine, and I can hardly wait to see what I will get done–one stitch at a time.
