New projects!

It's been quite a busy time for me lately. I've made a small (12x16) pillow for a friend's daughter and 12 Sanrio characters. I'm also getting close to finishing the star afghan for my other friend's as-yet-unborn daughter. And I've been taking a cake decorating class at Michael's this month.

Oh, and I got old this month, too. I'm now nearly 26 and one month old and on my way out of my mid-20s!

My first Keroppi (I used the Tiny Hello Kitty pattern (Raverly link) as a base.

I added an extra row of scs to the head (rows 6-10 go 6-11 instead and then start decreasing), obviously didn’t do the ears and did the arms a bit differently.
Eyes: (with white - the pupils are safety eyes)
magic circle, 6 sc
1: 2sc in each (12 sts)
2: sc around (12 sts)
