We had a pretty relaxed afternoon, headed to my in-laws place, then we went to some relative's place. We had plenty of the traditional Thanksgiving foods: turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing...
We swung by my mom's place (new counters go in the kitchen in a few short hours!), and made another stop. All in all, we had a pretty nice day, a lot more relaxed than holidays past, and it was good to see some of the people we haven't been able to connect with in a while.
Anyway, I'm not just here to dictate about my day... Today is the big day! We're starting the Project AWARE sale today!
So, for my crochet Santa shark, he is the two main Christmas colors: green and red. He has a the green body so he can have the traditional red Santa hat. All of the fins are still in the same places as before, but the color variation and the hat definitely make him unique.
He is also not just crochet: I am a firm believer in anything stretch to be made in a knit, so I did the hat in a moss stitch knit pattern. Overall, it turned out fantastic! I do love this little guy. With the hat, he has both of my signature moves: moss stitch in the hat, and the same deep purple eyes.
He is already available in the Marketplace, and is the perfect addition to kicking off the Project AWARE sale! Proceeds will be donated on all of the crochet animals starting now! I can't wait to see what these handmade trinkets and toys will help to provide to preserve the animals and habitats they are modeled for! Thank you to all who help me donate with a purchase!
