Finished for Friday - Rocket Ship

Motor Mouth has been asking me to crochet him a rocket ship. I'm a good mommy, so I searched and searched for patterns. Couldn't find one for the life of me! So, with just 2 months of crocheting under my belt, I decided I had the skill and expertise to CREATE a pattern.

It's not Friday, but I wanted to post this today, 
so I could get it on Ravelry.com

Shan - You fit it in while watching TV and your husband drives you around town. You can also get a few stitches in during church service if you sit in the back, or the video room or sound booth....

FaithChick - I got such a razzing at Christmas, I almost put my needle down for good. J kept saying it looked like I was making him a 'jacket' for the cold walk to the bus stop. I will steer away from elephants with long tusks and rocket ships in future.

You've been crocheting *how* long?!? That is amazing. You did a great job! And even wrote down the instructions! I am absolutely in awe.

(I'm expecting a crocheted gingerbread house this year. You have about 11+ months to work on it. Please include instructions.)

Thanks for joining in!
