The top picture is the book I make all the notes for my crochet patterns in (a beautiful Muji notebook that my mum bought a long long time ago and never used) and the one below simply shows the beginning of my wanderer beginning to take shape.
I am starting with the hood of the wanderer as I figure this will be the trickiest. I though about cheating and making a solid red head and sewing a black crochet face on top to create the head, but I don't think this will have a satisfactory/pleasing finish for me personally, and what is the point in creating something if not for yourself!
The work you see so far took me about an hour, quite a long time, but I made notes as I went along and am feeling hopeful about how this character will turn out. I am prepared to devote quite a while to this one though. I had to take a break though because it was incredibly difficult! I've also - in case you were wondering - put my Pikachu phone case project on hold for the moment until I can buy some better weighted yarn as the stuff I have now is a nightmare!
Fingers crossed for this one though - I want to do this game proud!
