Craftster crocheters were busy in March - we've got a bunch of fantastic projects* to titillate your eyes and get your creative juices flowing. Some of them might even make your mouth water and your Nintendo thumb ache! A lot of these are by newcomers to Craftster, too!

Aaargh, Matey! ohmeohmyoreilly is new to Craftster, but obviously not to crochet. It was hard to pick a favorite to showcase for March, but his Crochet Pirate Bearded Beanie disguise was an obvious favorite:



I love items that are crafty in the true sense of the word - handmade, beautiful, and functional. princesspimp81's Crochet Cake Treasure Boxes definitely fit the bill! These look good enough to eat!



And how about the deliciously cute Ice Cream Sundae hat by randomheartsx? I can't wait to see what she cooks up next!



For those of you who embrace your inner child, I'm sure you loved mama24boyz's Spongebob and Patrick winter sets! Though I doubt it's possible to love them more than these guys did:



In the event of an amigurumi alien invasion, you can fight off the bad guys with woo_work's adorable-but-deadly Raygun!



You think you know cute? You haven't begun to understand yarn's capacity for cuteness until you've see this adorable pair of Baby Dragons by Mousica:



Though it's possible that they have a bit of competition with mrsflibble's baby Sea Monster toy, who apparently eats electronics but makes little godsons laugh:



In the Crochet As Art category, we have a beautiful Freeform Crochet Scarf by Carlafibers. It's amazing what you can do without a pattern or a plan!



Bringing us more wearable art, former Featured Hooker meekssandygirl shared a gorgeous array of crocheted necklaces- my personal favorite are these lovely lemons:



By far and away the most "This Rocks" hits and comments and general awe came in response to Gege's jaw-dropping work of dedication and geeky-craftiness, the Super Mario Obsession:






*These are chosen via a magical algorithm that combines "This Rocks!" hits, number of comments, originality and creativity of the project, and detail and information in the posts. I also make an effort to present as wide a range of project types, styles, and members. Preference is given to posts shared in the Craftster spirit (not for sale, helpfulness, information shared, etc.).
