since i was a kid, i've been obsessed with the PC game "commander keen."  now that i'm also obsessed with crafting, it's only fitting that i combine obsessions into one SUPER obsession! *diabolical laugh*  ahem... anyway...

thus the dopefish cross stitch was born!



(sorry the pic's a little funky.  that always happens to me with cross stitch.)

 Shocked I want one!!

I spent so much of my childhood on Keen 1 and Keen 4.... I still get the music to it stuck in my head all the time! If you followed a pattern please can you let me know where i can get it from? If you made it yourself then well done its perfect!!

Well done!  I recognized it instantly, but I could hardly believe that someone else played Keen as a kid until I read the post.

i made the pattern myself.  it's pretty simple.  just take a screenshot of him (or find a pic online), then enlarge it and add the grid.  i think i might still have the pattern somewhere, but i'm not sure.  i'll look and post it if i can find it.

thanks for the comments!
