Everybody's got a water buffalo
Yours is fast but mine is slow
Oh, where do you get them I don't know
But everyone's got a water buffaloooooo.................

This is what kept going through my mind as I crocheted this little critter.  As usual, I had no idea what I was making when I started out, but the VeggieTales song just kind of guided my hook and Clyde came into being.   He is OOAK and just as cute as he can be.    I may create other water buffalos in the future, but there will never be another one exactly like Clyde.

Gotta Love This Pretty Necklace!

I love working with good high quality fibers when I'm crocheting!  And some of the yarns are sooo pretty!  Like this:  

The picture does not really do this necklace justice.  It is just gorgeous in real life!  This is hand crocheted using the Solomon's Knot stitch and is approximately 10 yards long and done in one long piece.  The options for looping this around the neck are varied and endless.   The button tab on it can be  removed or embellished with a broach or flower.
I love this necklace!  I can't wait to try more colors with this pattern.
Thanks to Carolyn at Living Skies Crochet  for this lovely pattern.

Lovable Little Critter!

After 3 1/2 years, I'm back.  Life gets busy sometimes and people get sidetracked.  Well, I get sidetracked for sure.  But things are good and now as a retiree I have more time to do all the things I love!

Lately that thing is crocheting, and here is one of my latest critters.  I say 'critter' because he is totally a one of a kind creation.  His name is Frankie and he was crafted randomly and without a pattern.  There will never be another just like him.  Part bear, part fox, part cat?  Use your imagination!

Leave a comment and tell me if you think he is as cute as I do!
