I think I started these in September. My friend, Liz, posted on her blog where to find the pattern and I knew I had to make them. I had my sister Jill's family's name for gift-giving this Christmas, so I decided to make two sets. I know-CRAZY! I think we started in September. My friend, Brianne, decided to make them with me. Awesome idea. We got to hang out and play and crochet (sometimes:) every Friday. I finished Jill's set right before the move and finally finished my Joseph! The kids are a bit disenchanted with them because they have seen them around for 4 months- but Jill informs me her kids love them. Yeah! Success. Hopefully the kids will be excited next year.
