cute overload

I wrote a little while ago about commissioning June Gilbank of PlanetJune to make a pattern for a crochet Yeti doll.  June, of course, came through with flying colors on the pattern, but there was still the part about actually making the doll that needed to be addressed.  Well, as the saying goes, fortune favors the bold, because my wife took it upon herself to first learn to crochet (a crucial step in the process) and then make this great rendition you see above.

After seeing the final project, it's obvious that that right choice was made in getting the pattern and moving forward with these (officially licensed!) Yeti dolls, because holy crap, those things are friggin' adorable.  We'll be sure to have a bundle to sell at the upcoming New York Comic-Con, where I imagine people will completely ignore the book for the aesthetically pleasing qualities of this crocheted wonder.  I look forward to it!

The question is: when are you going to learn how to crochet?

I'd actually like to...whatever that's worth.
