...and I'm gonna love him and hug him and squeeze him and call him George" *grin*





This thing is completely crocheted in one piece, except for the cup for the plunger arm and the "voice light" thingies on top of the head.

I started off with a free pattern from the internet, but that didn't last, I didn't care for this persons way of writing and I wasn't happy with the look of it.
I ended up googling and looking at alot of pictures of Daleks and went from there.

There are still parts of it that I am not happy with. I think that the head dome is too tall, I need to shorten it by about 3 rounds and the "waist" area needs to be shortened by about 2 rounds and I don't like the look of the "chest" area between the plunger arm and laser arm.

I also want to "tweak the arms and eye stalk a bit. They are too floppy for my taste.

All in all, I am quite happy with it!

Thanks!
I am really liking the way the pink one is turning out too. It's more of the "new series" look than this one is and I will definitely post pics when it is done (:

That is amazing. I have trouble just crocheting a simple blanket. I hope you post pictures of the other 2 when they are done.
