Obot, interrupted

Owen's Obot is almost completely done. All that's left is stuffing and seaming, and that's the part that I'm feeling the most nervous about.

I realize that Owen really doesn't care if his Obot is perfect, in fact it'd be cuter if it's not, but the Mom in me wants a perfect Obot for her kiddo. Nevermind the fact that this is based only very loosely on the pattern in the New Knits on the Block book and that a hundred small things have already been changed. I still want the best Obot ever.

And that's why the Obot has been sitting in this condition since Sunday night. I purchased the stuffing for him on Monday morning but haven't brought myself to actually begin the stuffing and seaming. I may need an intervention at this point, but I'm not entirely sure. I should see if Sarah would come over to be of some moral support, or maybe I could just drive to the yarn store and be guilted into finishing it, or maybe I should just shut up and do it. Any way it goes, this will definitely require homemade rice crispy treats.

HOMEMADE RICE KRISPY TREATS???? You don't have to ask me twice! Let me know when the stuffing shall commence. Is this an Easter Obot?

That is ADORABLE!!! I don't have any kids, but I think I may just have to make an Obot for myself. I'd say just sit down and finish it! Once you've started it'll go by quickly and you'll wonder why you hesitated at all. I do that on almost all of my "finished being knitted but still requires assembly" projects.

Deep breaths! You can do it!

Seaming stuffed toys totally sucks. But the results are worth it!
