Last year for Christmas, I made Gir, a Triforce pillow, scarf and hat set for my mom, hats for my boyfriends nieces and nephew, and a penguin and dragon for my cousins.  This year, I held back from making so much because I've been having problems with my wrist.  Here's this years haul:

The crowning glory of this year's gifts- the Cthulhu ski mask.  My friend had seen this on the intertubes http://boingboing.net/2009/05/05/cthulhu-ski-mask.html and he casually said that he wanted one for Christmas.  I couldn't find an exact pattern so I started with a basic hat pattern and winged it from there. See:


Scarf for a friend:


Close-up:

The colors are a vibrant blue, white, and maroon but I couldn't get an accurate picture of the colors.

Another scarf for a friend:


Close-up:

It's backed in a purple fleece and the bow is the same color purple.

Panda:

This is a Lion Brand pattern.  The only thing the pattern is missing is a wee panda tail.

C&C appreciated!  Thanks!

The chart can be found here: http://www.mypicot.com/crochet_patterns_mc1005.html, and the site has all kinds of charts available.  The site doesn't really provide patterns.

I actually don't have progress pics.  I was too excited to finish it to see if it would look okay that I totally forgot to take progress pics.

That cthulhu mask is really awesome (like everyone else said).  I showed it to someone that I"m doing a personal swap with and now her husband wants one.  he was kidding around and said "I'm paying for all the materials and the shipping..  what do I get out of it?!"  but he really likes that so I may have to wing it and attempt making one for the swap.  Thanks for posting and inspiring!  Grin

I was inspired myself!  Good luck.  It's not too difficult to figure out.

The scarves are lovely, especially the collared one, that's flippin' inspired!

But the Cthulu Balaclava?  That has got to be one of the most creative things I've seen on Crafster this year.  Insanely cool!

LOL, my first thought was "OMG awesome!", and my next was "hmmm, if that was in gray, it would TOTALLY be the squid captain guy!"

That stripe scarf is gorgeous!  And hey, I can do that stitch!  LOVE the colors!  And the skully scarf, backed with fleece?  Want!

What great projects, I bet your friends were SOOO happy!

I think I have it somewhere.  The skull was done in tunisian crochet (or afghan stitch- whatever way you prefer calling it).  If I can find it I will provide!
