  2. LOL (I'm crocheting while stupid this a.m.!)

    Chose colors and began with shell color thinking I was doing the body. Never dawned on me until the flat section was all decreased at neck. (Oh, well - I'll do a 2nd one in opposite colors and blog the stupidity...)

    Went all the way to the tip of the tail and Fastened off. FORGOT to stuff head!!
    Maybe I can blame it on my head cold & yesterday's meds?

    try, try again will be today's motto!!
    (Love the pattern ;)
