Yes, that's exactly what I meant it to be...
Meet Baldassare the Blood Drop. Working at a hospital, I thought it would be quite fitting to crochet up a little toy like this. Isn't he cute?
And now, the real story. I didn't actually plan to have a drop of blood for a toy. It was originally supposed to be a toy mouse.
Starting to get the picture? But since I'm really new to this crochet game, I'm still not good at gauging how much yarn I need to finish a project. So, before I could get the ears and tail done, here's how much yarn I had left.
Not exactly enough to make the rest of the appendages on Mr. Mouse. But since I already put the eyes on, I didn't want to waste the toy (such as it is).
And so, I'm sticking to the story that I always planned to make it a drop of blood, and don't all of you think otherwise (haha!).
