Mr. hippo

Last weekend my sister and I went to the new JoAnns that opened in St. Charles. It was a-ma-zing.
Let me tell you.
While we were there Ashley picked out this book full of crochet animals.

I was intrigued.
So intrigued that I convinced her to let me borrow the book until we meet again in two weeks.
Here is my first attempt at one of the many animals...
And let me tell you, woe.
I am opening up a whole new ball game for baby showers people.
Be sure to invite me. ;)
(Just kidding).

little hippo feet little hippo ears

and a hippo!

I spent my whole afternoon after taking my test with Mr. Hippo.
And I have to say that it's been a while since I've done that.
Remember the days of Craft Sabbaths?
Those were good.
I am ready to start those again.

After an afternoon, it was as if I could hear the hippo calling out to me...

NaNa made crocheted animals, too! One Christmas I got a HUGE octopus with eight braided legs. It was magnificent and got the main spot on my bed -- in the middle of the bed in front of the pillow-- for years! She is smiling right now!
