Run for Your Lives!!!

So about a year ago I decided to teach myself to crochet. Actually, I wanted to knit. But quickly gave up. So I gave crocheting a try and fell in love. 

I've made a bazillion hats.. And although I might be exaggerating on that part, it's pretty close. 

Anyway, in the beginning, I found www.ravelry.com. If you crochet or knit and don't know about Ravelry... Slide that rock off the hole you are living in and check it out! The inspiration and ideas are endless. 

Then this past Saturday, my 9yr old asked me for a zombie. I guess I should be honored that he has so much confidence in me. I found a pattern on Ravelry and went to work.

While making his zombie I learned that my son could easily run a sweatshop during the process. He was relentless. "Is it don't yet?"  "Will it be done tomorrow?" "Why are you taking a break?" "Do you want a bandage for those raw fingertips?"  

So, after 2 evenings of working away, here is his new zombie...


Ain't he "cute"?

I LOVE it! I love crocheting but hurt my thumbs so now I am trying to learn to knit! Did I tell you that I am back to blogging? I miss it. I need it. Do you still do the Friday night sew in? I need to catch up.

Your Zombie is great! It sure seems like a great relationship you two have! Maybe you can use some of his quotes next time he needs a little boost to get the garbage out.. or whatever his task might be. The words might mean more to him now that he understands management a little bit more! Ha!
Keep on having funI I use and love my LSMQG pin cushion every day. Thanks for the inspiration.
