My kids go to the library on Wednesdays to play chess. Dr. Destructo is a 6 year old chess professional in training, and Kiddo takes all the credit for teaching him. It’s quiet, and they love it. I’ve been doing a lot of my designing at the library table in the magazine section while waiting for them. It’s been pretty great. Last week Knotty Knucklehead received some much needed legs. You’re going to make part of them today. I can tell already that the feet are going to jam me up (and probably make me curse out loud quietly to myself), so enjoy this cheerful, frustration free version of the crochet-a-long this week. It will definitely may change when I get to the feet.

New here? Wondering what I’m talking about? This is an ongoing crochet-a-long. Click here to go to the beginning of the Knotty Knucklehead Crochet-As-I-Design-Along.
