Busy Little Elf

Times are tough, so instead of buying Xmas gifts, I'm crocheting them for the younger set. This has been going on for a while--ever since this summer I've been crocheting, and sold many of my creations at the two area crafts bazaars I signed up for.

It's not a real big money-maker, although I do manage to make back the registration fee plus a little bit for extra. The problem is that when you consider the time it takes and the investment in yarn, you're really not netting a profit.

But it's been fun! Above are two critters that I designed myself, and which will be gifted to a niece and nephew. Too bad I didn't keep track of what I was doing, because I'll never be able to reproduce them.
One is Sophia the Siren, a tanned and lovely mermaid, and the other is T-Rex, a fearsome beast with a little twinkle in his eye. I love them both. Let's hope they are loved by their children.
