FO - Chinese Zodiac Tiger
Santa brought me the Fall/Winter 2008 issue of Knit 1. He brought it so that I could make this:




I've been requested to make three of these babies.

Folks, this was my FIRST crochet project! I've never been able to go beyond a chain. I'm psyched!

I used Wool Ease. The color is Paprika.

He's going to be part of my sister's birthday gift. Her birthday is the 9th of January.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks, all!

I forgot to give a shout-out to my friend Michelle (pcmaya). She's a crocheter and a good friend, and she helped me out the other night...explaining how to properly do a sc.

Oh, and the reason for the tiger? Because we're HUGE Auburn fans (despite our dismal showing this season).
