There has been a long-standing argument between me and the s.o., which goes something like this...
s.o.: i need a chainsaw.
me: you don't need a chainsaw.
s.o.: yes i do!
me: why do you need a chainsaw?
s.o.: so i can cut things down.
me: what kind of things?
s.o.: trees and stuff.
me: you'll cut your arm off, and we can't afford that.
s.o.: but i could also cut trees and stuff.
so for valentine's day, i made him the chainsaw from the splitter pattern page. i used rhss because i'm cheap and we were broke. i used the exact same colors as the one in the example pics, because i happened to have those colors on hand, and i couldn't think of any other colors (that i also had on hand) that would look as good. he totally loved it. it went really well with the thong i crocheted for him, but he wouldn't let me take pictures of that...*edited to remove all the crap under the picture*
