Last week was cold, damp and dreary, which gave me a reason (as if I ever need one!) to sit down and watch some Doctor Who.  After much indecision, I finally chose The Impossible Planet – the episode in which the Ood (a peaceful alien species with telepathic abilities) made their first appearance.
Midway through the episode, I got the urge to crochet an Ood.  Out to the internet I went…in search of a pattern.  I found a few.  Most were too big but they were inspiring.  In the end, I decided to wing it.  I spent a lot of time ripping out stitches until I was satisfied with this little guy (he’s the length of my hand.)

And, yes, those are quarry rocks. : )
