Update on the project I shared yesterday :-) Don't forget to swipe to see this project even further on!
This is an extra for June's #amigurumicharityrun Raffle and the Raffle will be up tomorrow evening (Wednesday). @thethoughtfulknitter was correct in guessing that I'm making The Hulk :-D and I hope you'll all enjoy him as an extra to win along with Thor.
I am SO happy with how he is turning out as I must admit I was not keen on how he looked in my pattern book. It's amazing the difference cotton can make and it's one of the many reasons I love it for amigurumi :-). It gives a lovely stitch definition and has really brought this pattern to life. I felt like he had a character after I finished his legs and as you'll see from the second photo his body is looking great. I can't wait to add his head and arms tomorrow as he is looking so much better than I ever hoped (it's why I never put him as a poll option as I didn't think the pattern was that nice but wow what a difference cotton has made!). Oh and I'm so happy I changed his shorts colour, I had purple but I was thinking why purple as that wasn't what I thought when I think of The Hulk. I think of more earthy/natural tones for his trousers/shorts so when I found what I'd describe as karki green in my stash I knew it was the right colour to use. I hope from seeing these photos you agree as I think they suit him much better!
In case your wondering the only reason I am not using my favourite cotton is that they didn't have the right colours I needed and luckily I had the right colours in my stash by using Drops Muskat. I've been spoilt with @threebearsyarn non splitty yarn though and I am missing it as this yarn as great as it looks isn't as easy to work with as the strands separate easily.
Well I best get some rest, I am still not doing well and had to sleep again this afternoon as the pain was so bad. I am really hoping these very bad days ease up soon and in the meantime all I can do is try to get through each day. I must admit although crochet is harder to do right now working on The Hulk this evening was a much welcomed distraction :-). Luckily the pattern hasn't been too hard to do either.
