Rocky Roach

Now it's my other older brother's turn and boy do I have the best birthday gift for him. Mwahahaha! XD Nice theme I'm doing this year for my brothers' birthdays, huh? Recreate the things they hate the most. Best sister eva!!! Hahaha! XD

My second eldest brother is reputed to hate the most disgusting insect, sole survivor of the atomic bomb explosion, main antagonist of the anime Terra Formars, and spawn of Satan himself... The COCKROACH!!! Well, I have to admit even I despise the little pest. Nasty little buggers!
Things that should never go together:

- Fire and crazy people

- Douchebags and hopeless romantics

- Pizza and salad (Seriously!!!) 

- Socks and sandals

- Brothers and evil exes

- John Green and my emotions

And most importantly...

- Cockroach and flying [Shudder]

Thank goodness Rocky did not turn out as disgusting as its squishy counterpart. He's actually pretty cute. Oh. My. Gosh... I probably created the only nonrepulsive cockroach in human history. Wow! I should be in National Geographic. Hahaha! XD

  1. I love Rocky Roach and am making it right now. I do have a question. On the head rnd 1=4, rnd 2=8 and rnd 3=18. How do I get from 8 to 18 stitches? Is there a rnd or two missing?
    thanks,
    Brigitte
