The lover and his problems!!

Now working out a new design always has it's problems but in my case most of them suffer at one time or another from a lack of concentration or tiredness.  Oh, could that be old age too?!?!?  

Do take a peek at the Spanish dancer's lover.  I finished this one (apart from his hat) on Wednesday evening.  Poor chap.  I think he'll need a walking stick as his one leg is longer than the other.  Could he be the original 'Long haired lover from Liverpool' or perhaps just 'Daddy Longlegs'?!?!?!  All suggestions are very welcome!!!!  Please keep them clean, though!!

When you look at him carefully and count the rings there are the same number on each leg.  Something has 'gone wrong' in the crotch area.  I hope to explore this later today.  I worked up another 'lover' and got to the stage when I was down the first side of one leg.  That, I felt, was a good time to stop and wait for brain cell # 3 to arrive for his weekend break!!!

I think the lover looks fine... he has one leg forward and one leg back! I agree... he does need a hat! What a dashing devil!

I agree with Diane -- he looks like he has put his best foot forward, but the wind blew away the hat he was tipping.

I think he looks fine too. Are you concerned about that V of negative space between hip and crotch? It looks like the other side is joined to the middle and so there is not an empty space but I don't think it's all that distracting. You go right ahead and fix it if it bothers you though!

I think all I need to do is 'hitch' up his left leg. There appears to be one chain extra in there!! I plan to join the top two chains anyway with a vsp. I howled laughing when I saw him the next morning!!! Least I've got the arms going the opposite way to his 'lady friend'!!!

I agree with the others, he is very dashing and I see no problem with him apart from the missing hat!

I didn't see the extra chain until you pointed it out. I think some of it is tension--the chains look tighter and there is less space between the SRs on one side. Still, he has a lot of personality--I really like this one.
