Kerbal Crochet Amigurumi Pattern Preview

**UPDATE** The pattern is now available!
Who doesn't love a Kerbal (assuming you're familiar with the Kerbal Space Program game)? The way they wobble, the way they smile--adorable! My husband is a KSP player and suggested that I work on crocheting a Kerbal, and being a fan of Jebediah Kerman myself, I couldn't resist.
The pattern was a bit of a challenge but well worth the work! The Kerbal pictured is a preview of the free pattern to come--I'm still writing up the pattern into something readable. Check back soon!

My Submission for The Butterfly Project

Photo source: Holocaust Museum Houston

The brilliance of this project idea really impacted me: using 1.5 million butterflies that are themselves unique and individual to symbolize and represent each of the 1.5 million children lost in the Holocaust. This exhibition will make visual a number that I still can't wrap my head around. 1.5 million is a large lump sum, but to think of each individual number boggles my mind.
