The time has come to say goodbye

I have been blogging off and on for several years but I’m just not feeling it anymore! My heart isn’t in it and it shows in my posts and participation. In effort to simplify and minimize my life and to do list. I’m going to quit blogging and concentrate more on creating the things that I love to gift and donate. I might be back someday but for now you can find me on Instagram as Missy’s Crafty Mess. You can still follow my Recipe Blog although I only post when I find a new family recipe. I wish you all the best!

    • Start with pink yarn and sc 5 stitches into a magic loop. Pull tight and switch colors (I used gray)
    • 2sc into each original 5 sc.
    • I expanded 3 more rows by adding extra stitches every so often
    • I used a stitch marker to mark the top (tail) at the start of the next round and then I placed the legs at the bottom with room for the tail to fit in between them.
