A few years ago, my sister gave Boogs a crocheted Hobbes and a crocheted dragon. Boogs had expressed interest in learning how to make some crocheted animals for himself. I searched for patterns and found the book Whimsical Stitches by Lauren Espy. Shortly after I bought the book, Boogs lost interest in wanting to make the animals for himself. I completely forgot about this book until I recently learned to crochet.
