For Valentine's Day, I crocheted up this cute little lovebug for Boyfriend. The original pattern called for red and pink yarn, but I thought alien green would suit his tastes better. He came with a heart ribbon to get in the spirit.
Lovebug by Heliina SwerdylkYarn: Caron Simply Soft BRITES in Limelight and leftover Lion Brand Cotton Ease in snow from my le Slouch.
Hook: My favorite, the turquoise H.
Notes/modifications: Different colors. For some reason he came out larger than expected. I also couldn't manage to crochet a decent looking heart for the wings, so he got circles, and I used felt circles for the eyes instead of hearts. More "masculine" if you will. And I didn't use pipe cleaners to make him look extra "other worldy;" they just wouldn't bend the way I wanted them to.
I made Boyfriend Peruvian Fish soup. It had cod, scallops and shrimp (I couldn't get squid, but the shrimp was awesome anyway.) It was spicy, but delish. After awhile the texture of the scallop got to me, and so did the spice, but it was yummy nonetheless. I received candy and roses, and we watched Juno. There's nothing like a pregnant 16 year old to fully appreciate love.
