Anana went with Bob the Blood Drop and the new guy, Dalek Blood Drop, to donate.  It went okay, except the new guy kept yelling "Exsanguinate! Exsanguinate! Exsaaaaanguinnnnnnnaaaaaaate!" in a really annoying voice.  I don't think Bob has to worry about anyone stealing his job!

It's nearing the Police vs Fire blood drive, and it got me thinking - why do they have all the fun?  Last time we had a blood drive that week I crocheted a bunch of red and blue Bob the Blood Drops*...

(*he's a squeezy to use while donating blood - yes, they will give you a rubber ball wrapped in a paper towel, but Bob is way cooler... at least in my mind)



...and gave them away as an incentive.  But I was thinking... why do police and fire have all the fun?  Why not Public Works (orange) vs Parks (yellow-green)?  And THEN I started thinking about Klingons (pink) vs Vulcans (blue)... Unicorns (silver) vs Dragons (green).... THEN I started thinking about giving the unicorn blood drop a horn, and the dragon a tail and wings (that may still happen) and THEN... THEN I saw on TV tropes about Daleks (green) and... and... it had to be done.  (I also want to make a Cybermen (white) blood drop!).

Here's the pattern (whooo-hooo for Nerd Games Bonus Points!!!)

Size F Hook
Worsted Weight Yarn
Work in a continuous spiral
Booble: yo, insert hook through st, yo, pull up loop, yo, pull through two loops, *yo, insert into same st, yo, pull up loop, yo, pull through two loops * repeat from * to * twice more, yo, pull through all 5 loops on hook

Round 1: with light green, SC 4 in magic Ring (or, ch 2 and sc 4 in second ch from hook). 
Round 2: SC in each st (4)
Round 3: *SC in first st, 2 SC in next st* repeat from * (6)
Round 4: *SC in first st, 2 SC in next st* repeat from * (9)
Round 5: *SC in first st, 2 SC in next st* repeat from * to last st, sc in last st (13)

Round 8: SC in each st (17)

Round 10: SC in each st (22)
Round 11: *SC in first st, 2 SC in next st* repeat from * (33)
Rounds 12-13: SC in each st (33)
(attach dark green yarn to be used in bobbles)

Round 21: SC in each st  (lt green) (33)
(end lt green, switch to dk green)
Round 22 - 24: *SC in first st, SC 2tog* repeat from *, join
(stuff-as-you-go decreases)
Row 25: SC 2tog
(Cram as much stuffing as you can in as youre closing him up, remember, hes there to be squeezed so he needs to be fairly firm.)
Fasten off.

Eye Stalk:
Round 1: with white yarn, sc 6 in magic ring
Round 2: switch to dk green, sc around (6)
Round 3: in blo, sc around (6)

Anana has been mostly hanging around the house with me, we did go on a few culinary adventures, the weirdest being...

Pickle cookies. Yup.

And people wonder why I always have swap anxiety/feel like my packages are "meh"... crafting with the amazing Miss Cryssoleil certainly feeds my inferiority complex! ;p

Oh. Em. Gee. O o

I'd totally steal that scarf if I thought I could get away with it... think I can just hide it under my shirt? ;p

Turns out it was splendid weather for a baseball game! Anana had fun, though the seats were waaaaaaaay up there. And they won!



And then, today, one of our Parks guys came around to show off his ring from last year - he's a member of the grounds crew!
