I started a new cute little project yesterday morning.
My boyfriend found Creature Crochet by Kristen Rask at one of our local used bookstores: the whole kit with all the original pieces and book for $6. He bought it for me because there's an adorable ensemble of Alley Cats that he knew I would want. There's even a pattern for the garbage cans they hang out in! The Ravelry link is here if you want to see all 12 of the cute animal patterns.
The one I chose to crochet first is the "Eggy Pig." I admit that the name had a lot to do with me wanting to make this project. "Eggy Pig" is like the cutest name ever.
And here he is, my fat little Eggy Piggy:
But he's technically incomplete: The pattern instructs me to crochet two little piggy arms and two little piggy feet and then sew them all on. However, I hate sewing things up. It's possibly enough to make me decide not to give him legs at all. After all, like this he's far more aerodynamic. Which is important in a pig!
What do you think? Legs, or no legs?
