Birthday activities

So while I'm supposed to be using my free time this week to get ready for my birthday part, instead I have been using it to make some head way on my brother's birthday present. David's 22nd birthday is the end of March, so I have some time but not A LOT of time. I decided while I was making Ryan's mushroom hat last week that it would be cool to be able to crochet a bunch of different things from Super Mario. This is where the idea for my brother's present came from.

When we were younger David used to play Super Mario Brothers 3 all the time, so naturally I have very clear memories of all the little things from the game. Like the Super Leaf that game Mario raccoon ears and a tail, or the green boot that Mario would jump around in, things like that. What I didn't think through was how long it would take me to crochet enough of these things to make the blanket I had started planning. But I have finished 3 large squares and 5 little squares and hopefully I will be able to finish enough to make a full blanket by the time David's birthday roll around. Here's a look at some of what I've got done so far
