Not only do we have a child bringing home constant colds from school, I swear I’ve had one week of good health since November, but I’ve also started a part time job and Little Bean has cut out one of her naps. It leaves a lot less time for crochet and it’s really catching up to me at this point. That said, I’ve managed to make the Pokémon I have been looking forward to since I started. The magnificent Psyduck. He’s tied with Jigglypuff for my favourite.
Maybe it’s the constant migraines that lets me feel a kinship with this Pokémon. Then again, maybe I just like the pathetic nature. I also thought Wile E Cyote was adorable. My cute little Psyduck was made with a softer yellow than Pikachu or Jolteon. While he is technically pretty much the same colour in the anime and games I wanted something a little more in the traditional ducky range rather than the bright fun-fur, big-bird yellow. Little Bean’s favourite everything is duck shaped so I take my ducks very seriously.
Of course when I made him, I couldn’t decide between the confused, slightly vacant stare of the Psyduck or the pained head grab. Well, I couldn’t decide until about halfway through when the migraine hit. I kept making him and the first one ended up gripping his head pretty much by default. The second one I made and then only assembled a few days ago. Lucky for me, as yesterday I completely lost track of what day it was and would have only had half a post otherwise!
While most of my Pokémon patterns aren’t free, Psyduck patterns are pretty prevalent online, so you can expect mine on Monday (fingers crossed I don’t somehow take a turn for the worse with this cold before then). Though I will put up an add-free PDF for $1 download as I have with some of my others. More of you should buy them so I can make this my full time job!
