Below is my first attempt at converting the pi shawl to crochet. It seemed to work, however, the sport weight yarn I tried turned out too stiff. Yes, I know I could have tried a larger hook. The more I thought about the result, though, the more I realized the shawl would be bulkier and heavier than I hoped. So... nothing should be a loss. It will go to the local animal shelter as a snuggle (see "The Snuggle Project" link to the right) for a lovely cat or dog who is looking for a "forever home".
Gotta love stuffed animals that double as pillows! It seems like most toys made from crochet are often bulky but these critters are plain adorable. I just had to share them. These may sit on my "some day" list for a while but surely there will be a good excuse to make them!
