Pichu's ears are too complicated; that's why

Did I really not post the Bunny Blanket Buddy yet?  Well, either you fondly remember Bunny Blanket Buddy as half a baby gift for someone expecting twins or here, for the first time, is Bunny Blanket Bunny.

While thinking of Bunny Blanket Buddy #2 I realized something: Pikachu is just a bunny with thinner ears.  That shoots electricity and fights other animal like creatures for sport.  But in crafting terms, basically like a bunny.

And thus, Pikachu Blanket Buddy was born!

This is probably the best an embroidered face has ever turned out, and I have no idea why.  Either my skills have improved or nothing will ever look as good as Pikachu Blanket Buddy.

Shawl we dance?

This is what I traded Julia for some photography.  The whole thing is done in treble crochet with chain spaces.  It's not a complicated pattern which came in handy as a thesis-avoidance activity.

This is the picture we're going to use for the catalog.  Or the women's magazine spread.
