You know, sometimes when I get totally into whatever I'm working on, I fail to notice the obvious things around me. Like I overlook the huge button on my sidebar that says "Project Spectrum," and I forget that the Project Spectrum colors for April and May are pink, green, and yellow. And it takes reading this on the purl bee to remind me. DOH! Just about every critter/bug/softy I've worked on for the last month has had green in it. Granted, I have been a hopeless slacker about my Green Sock Knitalong socks, but clearly, I have been playing with the color a lot lately. It's my favorite - if I were to have a favorite and all....
For now, let me introduce to you Second Bug. Yeah yeah, I know, what an incredibly inventive and creative name! Right now I am more concerned with amassing these; I'll get around to naming them once they are all done. Here it is playing with first bug:
Actually first bug is holding second bug up because second bug is a little top-heavy. I am considering making another pair of legs and attaching them to the butt so that it can balance itself. After all, bugs do have six legs - so it would be accurate as far as that goes. Maybe I can even push a specific species' traits onto the legs and make this a cutesy katydid. Right now, I am happy about the fact that I learned how to make poseable arms:
And I swear to you, the placement of this flower was completely unintentional, but like a five year old, I can't help but laugh about it:
Okay, back to work for me. More finished stuff tomorrow.
