retro crocheted bookworm - with a green pompom tail!

g:  what is it?
me:  it's a worm.
g:  is it a dr. seuss worm?
me:  i guess.
g:  it's butt is inflated.

do any of you remember these?  probably all the children of the 80's, right?  i just remember them being so popular when i was a kid.

when i was making my pom pom garland, g wanted me to make a green pom pom for it.  i explained to him that i was going with a sky motif, but he said he still wanted a green pom pom.  i made him this bookworm from my childhood to appease him.

to create him:
chain 65, double crochet in third chain from hook, 2 more double crochet in same stitch, 3 double crochets in each of the next 11 stitches.  slip stitch to the spiral.  weave through excess yarn and trim off.  add pom pom tail and google eyes.
