Ok, it's not too bad. But after I was stuffing, they didn't go away. Susan B Anderson's didn't have odd little pleats:
Well, it does, but they aren't as severe. I asked her what the problem is, and she agreed with my fears, that my tension's probably too tight. Damn you bamboo needles. So I could frog and redo, but I was running low on time. (It was supposed to be a gift.) I was also pissed because then I'd have a huge head and body, and the legs wouldn't work, because I did the legs first. GRAH. So I frogged
...and realized yes, my tension was waaaaaaay too tight, and chose another pattern, this time Wesley the elephant, by Amy Gaines from Cute Little Animals. Yay crochet! It'll get done a lot quicker, woo! So Valentine's Day I put Watchmen on my computer and got working.
And then I just don't know what went wrong:
WHAT IS THAT? IS THAT AN ELEPHANT? HOW IS THAT AN ELEPHANT ANYWAY?
I have no idea how it's an expletive-ing elephant. The part where my hook is is supposed to be the beginning of the trunk. WHAT IS THAT GRAH.
This is what he's supposed to look like:

Yeah, so I have no idea what to do with these stupid elephants. I don't think an elephant will be made, stupid things. Currently everything's just hibernating; I don't know what I want to do with the second elephant, because my safety eyes are in there. Grah, more frustration! I might take out the trunk part and make it into a monster thing, but for now I'm done with them.
P.S. When I write a book, I want to have a neat Gorillaz-esque youtube.com preview. This is for Pirate Latitudes, which I talked about on Day 13.
