Finally I'm finished with the crochet top of doom! It almost killed me but I've finished and now I have that rather dangerous feeling that I can accomplish anything... So to help stop me starting another horribly complicated project I made up this very cute little guy instead.
Please let me introduce Nigel the elephant. Nigel is a fun loving curious sort of beast who wants to play and explore. He was going to be offered here as a giveaway but sadly my husband saw him first and has laid claim to him.
However, as I enjoyed making him so much I'm itching to make another and if you want to be in with a chance to win him all you have to do is leave me a comment on this post before the end of 23rd June and I'll enter you in the giveaway which will be drawn next week on Wednesday 24th June. Please remember to leave me a way to contact you so that I can let you know if you have won.
If you don't win the giveaway then not to worry - why not try and have a go at making one of these little guys for yourself . The pattern is freely available from the beautiful Roman Sock blog - well worth a good look if you also love wonderfully cute crochet critters :-)
The top of doom is looking pretty good after being finished off and the edging that I put round all the motifs really brings it together and makes it a less delicate piece of work. If you are not detered by my struggles then why not check out the original instructions for this beautiful top on the CrochetMe website
