I had to do my nails for the occasion (though I was too busy having fun, that I didn't show them off, whoops!).
For this I used a base of Weird Indeed Troy and Abed. This indie company isn't around anymore, but the color is just a pale blue with small amounts of glitter. Then I freehanded the yarn and crochet hook.
The first photo I'm posing with a crochet critter I made! My son's first birthday is monster themed so I'm crocheting a bunch of these guys to give out as favors.
