Well, I shouldn’t say “wrong,” maybe “not right” would be more accurate. I mean, you can tell what it’s supposed to be, it just looks ridiculous. You see, a friend of mine asked me to make a horse to be given to a group of men speaking at a conference at which she’s volunteering. This is a serious conference and these are serious speakers. They need a serious horse. What I came up with is not a serious horse (in my defense, look at my portfolio, serious is not my forte.) Let me introduce you to my creation, Fat Horse:
Oh, Fat Horse. The head was turning out so well, but then the body got so fat. I could probably even him out a bit by making the head bigger, but the body will never look like the lean, graceful creature that I based it on. If I make the body thinner, he won’t really stand up. While I normally keep working at something until I get it right, I know that this will never look good enough to be given to a serious scientist so I’ve aborted this custom mission.
Fat Horse is not a loss though. He makes me laugh with his long, luxurious, Fabio-esque hair and his chubby body and legs. I think what could take Fat Horse to the next level is making Fat Unicorn. I need to find some sparkly yarn and the next fat equine I make will be the finest, most comical crocheted horse ever.
