I just used pom-poms, googly eyes and felt for the face. I saw another cute piggy while googling 'crocheted yo-yos' online. Pretty cute. Almost the same as the one in the catalog. There is also a Yo-Yo Along Blog. (I got the link for the piggy from there, too). Mostly those are from fabric. Besides the crocheted pig already mentioned... I also found a miniature doll house afghan someone made out of yo-yos. I would go blind making that! :0 Well I might have found more but I got sick of looking by then. :P I still want to make a purse out of yo-yos, and have a few saved up for that too (in greens and browns). Someday...

What a lovely title.... Sorry for the lack of a better one. I have been looking for different ideas for things to do with yo-yos lately. I have been (slowly) making yo-yos to send to somene on CFAC to put into an afghan. I just like doing them. They are a quick, no brainer thing to crochet. Well I had recently seen a new pattern in an Annie's Attic catalog, called 'Yo-yo Baby Animals'. Or, 'Baby Yo-Yo Animals', rather. I thought it was cute, but didn't want to pay $7.95 plus shipping for something that I don't even know what I would use them for.... Well, that combined with our youngest son asking me to "crochet him a surprise", ended up in me trying to make one just from the picture. Well I got it out of my system, and hope to never make one again.
