I fell behind in my plans for Thanksgiving Crochet as I was late finishing my Halloween and birthday boxes in October. I decided I wanted to try some new patterns. The first one I purchased was this turkey pattern. He was funny and silly and I felt like I needed a bit of that to get this holiday box started.

This has probably been my most succesful year in shopping from my stash for projects. I've been picking projects to match my stash or adjusting projects so I can use fiber on hand. This fiber change for this project had a dual purpose. First I wanted a slightly smaller turkey. Second, I lacked the suggested yarn and even the colors of my go to substitute for this yarn on hand. With time being a factor and my goal of using up fiber on hand I switched to size 10 thread which I had the colors and my Tulip size 2mm Thread hook.

This is an incredibly detailed pattern that you can purchase here. I chose to not back the eyes and went with special eyes I had on hand. I lacked the white yarn for the top of the tail so I played with the thread to make it stand out of bit more.

At some point I'd like to make one of these for my own decorations. He has such a silly look to him that he makes me smile.
