Nautilus....

My dear sweet son is turning 13 this weekend! He asked me to crochet him a nautilus...like a cute one....pillow sized. Yeah.

I go online, I search and search and search for a pattern..nada...zip...zilch. Not happenin'..

So, I email various artisans on etsy asking if they have a pattern....in CROCHET mind you....I don't knit. Nope...not that either.

I had to wing it. I don't mind winging it. This is what it turned out like. Not bad for my first attempt...but not 'pillow sized.' It is about the size of a dinner plate.

its okay though, he loved it!

I love it that even though he is a "teenager" now, he still loves to have mom make him a little something! I love it when my 12 year old comes in and "would just love" to have something that I am making! One of my other sons just turned 15 (ugh! I am getting so old) on Feb. 25th! He wanted knitted slipper socks - I am still working on them!

That is just too cute! Wish I could crochet. All I know is the single stitch.

Hugs :)
