As you can see, I am not giving up with the hook. But then, I really have to say that I like crochet for small toys; so much easier to get tiny pieces in the shape I want than with knitting. Okay, the tentacles turned out a bit weird, but hey, there needs to be room for improvement, right?
However, this is Matilda, the Math Whiz (pattern from the German book Wollowbies by Jana Ganseforth). She’s a gift for my niece as a lucky charm for her math exam and since Matilda claims to be good at mental calculation, I hope she’ll do the trick and help my niece with her exam. There's even a tag on her snail shell that reads 'Du schaffst das' - 'You can do it!'. :) Now to hope that the snail mail is quick and Matilda gets to her destination before Friday.
