Teddy Smalls is the illest.

Yours truly kicked a crochet freestyle the other night (i.e., no pattern, yo!) and created my first amigurumi-style teddy bear. I still need to make his legs. His nervous expression was not intentional, but I must say I rather enjoy it. And since he was more-or-less completed on March 9 (the day the Notorious B.I.G. died, 11 years ago), I've named him Teddy Smalls. Either you're slinging crack rock or you got a wicked jump shot. You said it, Big, you said it.

Brilliant. Just brilliant. And frankly, around certain... um, ghosts, I too have that slightly anticipatory expression. Can't wait til TS has feets!

Thank you for visiting my blog and for choosing an appropriate name! Do we pronounce the "t" and the "s"? If only the former, I can call you "tootsie." You are getting a present on Tuesday!

Hmmm...maybe we can do a trade. You get a bear, I get my very own Storms-drawn self portrait? I figure we could have them done within the next year or two!
