Lately I've been in a mood to create my own designs when I crochet.   Usually I use a cute pattern designed by someone who is wildly creative,  and I have loved making almost every item I have ever completed.  But creating my own is a new challenge that I am beginning to enjoy just as much.

This is Licorice!  When I began working with this lovely variegated yarn I wasn't sure what would come out of it.  The more I worked, the more the finished product formed in my mind.    A goat!  What perfect yarn for a crochet goat!  When he was completed  I asked my grandson Paul what his name should be.  "Licorice" was his reply.  Of course he knows another goat named Licorice and I was delighted to name my creation after the original Licorice who happens to be a pet belonging to a friend of the family with a heart to rescue animals.
So, what do you think?  I see lots of things I can improve on, but I do think he is kinda cute!  I hope Licorice inspires you to try your hand at creating some original items too.
