This guy evolved out of a conversation about patience. A trait I do not happen to possess. So obviously I needed to make some. And Patience must be a rare and elusive creature and not an attitude. So I went in search of Patience. I found this fellow sitting on a monument, quite quietly it's no surprise most people overlook him. You'll notice that he has no arms. The reason is very simple. He doesn't need them, for all things come to those who wait.
I've been playing around with crochet and knitting for a few years now. Mainly I make toys. I think they're more fun and they are lower commitment projects than sweaters or afghans. A lot of the stuff I make is my own design, particularly when it comes to crochet. I'm not very good at reading crochet patterns so I free form most things. Besides, that's usually more fun.
