Thank you so much.

Sadly my mate doesn't comprehend the awesome factor.

Thank you. (and crocheted sounds right to me. :'o )
I have a pair of black wedge style flip flops that these go great with.

I'll be sure to post more photos once I finish my matching handflowers. :'D

Thank you. They are very comfortable to wear with flip flops too.

Thank you.

Thank you! I'm very happy with how they turned out. x33
I based most of the web part off of a pattern I found on Ravelry. Everything else was make it up as a went. :'3
Three prototypes later and I have my pattern. x3

So I'm a little spider obsessed these days. > . >

The story behind these is one of my characters has a pair in a dark violet. And I decided I needed a pair for myself.

Sadly I did not have dark violet crochet thread so my pair are white.
I want to get some spider charms & medium to big-ish lobster clasps to use as closures for the anklets. As right now they are held closed with some scrap thread.
Next on my to-do list... matching handflowers. :'3

Because it is nearly 1am here I had to bite on my knuckles to keep from waking my Mate and the Cub with my incessant giggling.
Seriously though you and your DH need an award for sheer awesomeness.

I am going to have to dig through my stash and make a few sets of these. :'D
They turned out great.

That's really great! I adore spiders. The first version is good, but the second is perfect.
Same here. Though I have gotten into spiders a lot more recently. <3
Awwe. Thank you I'm very proud of how she turned out.

that second one is absolutely wonderful! I'd love to see a pattern! This would be one T. blondi that I wouldn't have to worry about making me itch!
Thank you so much. <3
I have yet to decide if I'm going to make the pattern publicly available or not. Having issues with it as I am thinking of making more of these for sale. But if I do make it public I will be sure to update this topic with the pattern. :'3

You did an awesome job.  I hope she doesn't bite.  lol
Nah she's pretty lovey for a giant bird-eating spider. :'D Likes to nest in my hair though.

That is the first crochet critter I've seen that I LOVE...
Haha <3 Thanks. I'm really happy with her. <3

For those who don't know Theraphosa Blondi is a type of spider. A Bird-eating (or "Goliath" ) spider to be exact.
Mu-chan is based on a friend of mine's original character's pets. > . > Yes I'm weird enough to make a fictional character's pet just for fun.

This is my first version of Mu-Chan

This version took about 5 & 1/2 to 6 hours to complete and was based off two different patterns and some making it up as I went. This version is made of worsted weight yarn, black crochet thread, pipe cleaners, and fiberfill. Lots of fiberfill.

Well I wasn't happy with how she looked, so I spent another hour or two looking at this photo of a real T.Blondi and decided to give it another go.
So another 6 & 1/2 to 7 hours worth of work and Mu-chan version 2.0 was finished.

I have to say that I am in love with how she turned out. <3 I'm in the process of writing out the pattern I made for this one. (as if I wait any longer the scribble notes I took while working on her will become illegible or stolen by my 3 year old).
This version is made with worsted weight yarn, some beads I had laying around, fiberfill, pipe cleaners for the fangs, and floral wire armature for her legs and pedipalps.

A few weeks later she complained about being hungry so I made her some origami cicada bugs to munch on. She seems happier now. xD
