The first is one that I actually finished at the weekend and posted about on Twitter and Instagram. It is Sheldon (from The Big Bang Theory). The pattern designer - Jackie Laing from A[mi]dorable Crochet - actually made one and sent it to the actor who plays Sheldon (you can read about it here).
I edited the pattern as I was crocheting it to make it smaller otherwise it would have turned out huge - my crochet Sheldon is 13" tall. I think he looks great.
The other thing I finished crocheting is a hat that I was aiming to make for Rob for Christmas but I forgot to take a spare ball of wool with me to my parents' house so I couldn't finish it. It's finished now and is nice and comfy.
The colour looks a bit washed out in this photo but it is bright red. The pattern for this hat is so simple and the results look great.
