Raindrop Crochet Pattern!

Billy the Rain Drop!!
A tutorial/pattern… whatever you wanna call it ;)

Hey you guys out there in the blogging world, this here is Amanda (I sound country there lol) this is my very first Crochet Tutorial!! So if you have problems following it, I’m sorry and you can contact me with questions by commenting below. And if you manage to make Billy, please send me a picture!!! Also, I am making this pattern assuming that you already know how to crochet, so please don’t ask me what a magic loop is. Google it. Also, it is worked in the round, so when i say row. i really mean round... im to lazy to change it lol. The entire thing is worked in single crochet.

You Will Need:
blue yarn
Black yarn
A yarn needle (dull pointed needle)
A stitch marker
Crochet hook, (one size smaller then what your yarn calls for)
About ½ an oz of stuffing
                                  Buttons, google eyes or stuffed animal eyes

(supplies you need... sorry for the crappy quality. i don't have a camera.)

Row 1; make a magic loop and single crochet 4 stitches.
Row 2&3: increase every single crochet
Row 4&5-ish: crochet two, and increase in every third stitch. do this until you have a total of 24 stitches. you will probably get 24 in the middle of the row and that is OK just make sure you keep count
Row 6-12: single crochet all stitches once, do this for the next six rows or until your piece measures 2 1/2 inches tall when its sitting flat
Row 13: add your stitch marker now if you haven't already. just add it to the stitch you just finished. it really doesn't matter where that stitch you want to crochet 5, decrease 1. repeat across row
Row 14:move your stitch marker directly up one, then crochet 4., decrease one. repeat across row.
Row 15: move up marker, crochet three decrease one and repeat across row
Row 16 &17: move up marker crochet 2 decrease one. repeat across rows
Row 18-? decrease every stitch until you have one left. cut yarn and pull through final loop. weave end into body.

Thank you guys so much for reading. please comment with a pic if you decide to make this and if i have Any errors in my pattern, please let me know and i will try to fix them. also if you create  a Raindrop and post it to your blog, please link my blog to yours in order to give me credit. i also don't mind if you make these to sell, just don't sell my PATTERN as your own as that would be stealing and that's just plain NOT NICE!!!
(once again i apologize for the crappy pic.... i was using my cell phone)

Kony 2012

I am posting this blog post because something really cool just happend. if you dont know who Joseph Kony then watch the youtube videos protesting him.

They ARE indeed long, but if you watch the fist 5-10 minutes of the first video then you will get my main point. you see, my Current Events Teacher decided we should do the "Cover The Night" at  my School and that he was open to ideas. Well my idea was to "Cup" my schools overpass. see it here:

It ended up on the sites HOMEPAGE!!!!!!!!!! dont beleive me? here is their URL scroll down to the bottom, middle picture on the last row. so my point is the littlest things can make a difference. whether your just expressing an idea to your teacher, (who btw made all of it happen. im not trying to take all the credit. there were many people behind it) or tweeting about wht you belive in. Now there has been alot of controversey about the Kony 2012 campaign. i really dont feel  like going into the specifics here. but if this isnt the cause for you, then FIND ONE!!!!!! its not hard to to make yourself heard. you just have to believe.

A few random memorys from kindergarden

Well folks, you night find this hard to belive but in kindergarden i was the best behaved kid in my class. Yes i said it. The Amanda you've all come to know and love wasnt always so obnoxious anyway back to my memory. My teacher, mrs. Moser would let us have 15 minutes of free time every day. It was the life! We got to bbuild with blocks! Play with playdough! Play in a kitchen thingy, even play tag. Well one day the whole class was reeeeaaaaallllyyy bad and i was the ONLY kid who got free time (except for this girl ebony, but it was her first day that day so it really dosent count) she and i hit up every station. We built a block house, played kitchen and competed to see who could make the longest play doh snake. My play doh was greenish blue. Any way it was fun (btw after that me and her became kindergarten enemys... i dont remember why lol) even though i saved her life later that year...... which brings me to another random memory...... a bunch of js were playing leaf monster... we would lie down under a pile of leaves and jump out and act like zombies and it was my turn to be the monster but i couldnt breathe under the leaves so she snapped at me and was the monster instead but this 1st grader boy who came in our class alot forgot she was under the leaves and stepped on her face... her nose started bleeding so a couple of us ran for the teacher. I got there first (the one and only race ive ever won lol) and told her what happened.... ok so i didnt save her life but it was close enough!!!! Anyway im sleepy... just thought id share that with you all... lol night
