so I started on a mermaid - yesterday in the evening I finally made some research on mermaids, tail forms, length and everything and I started to crochet, the caudal fins were a little tricky to realize but I think they look good now.
I also continued a little on my little critters and ordered new yarn to finish my critter monkey, that only has a head and ears at the moment. All the other critters more or less only require eyes now. So I think the pattern is about to be started to be written down.
But like I know myself, the mermaid has got my attention now and writing the patterns will take a few more days (on the other hand my vacations are over and I need to return to work tomorrow - it's not like I couldn't stay at home a few more days, but I might find some time on the computer there . . . or in the evenings when I'm too tired to crochet)
