inspired by the various other craftsters who've made brain slugs, i decided to make my own! for the uninitiated, brain slugs are from futurama, and they feed on your brain waves. let's all go to the brain slug planet and walk around without helmets on! i also based the body of pepperkitty's octopus, and he turned out so tiny! poor little guy is pretty malnourished from sitting on my head. or perhaps i should've just used bulkier wool and a bigger hook. who knows?

he's a christmas present for my dad, and since he turned out so wee i'm now on the hunt for a suitably themed mug to pop him into. daddy dearest is a major tea drinker, so i think he'd appreciate it. and he has to like the brain slug, because he is bound to like all crappy things i make him. he still uses the van gogh sunflower paperweight i made him when i was 4, even though it does look like a dirty fried egg.

i used patons faiytale colour 4 me yarn, and a 0.4mm hook. thanks for looking!

I love the brain slug! Very cute!

I'm always thinking one step ahead. Like a carpenter that makes stairs.
