I received the most amazing knit (yes, I asked her for knit since I can't!) creatures from LimeRiot yesterday. I'm in love! There was an amazing Squid right off my wists, and an awesome monster with a baby in its pouch!

Group pic:


The squid (my sister has dubbed him Squidley!) He has pipe cleaners (I think) in his tentacles and I love the yarn, the colors are so interesting and remind me of how they can change colors!


The monsters. They don't have names yet! They match my couch great, btw, so they'll be sitting there with all my other stuffed animals (I like strange ones):


Mommy:


Baby separately:


So cute!

I also have a few pics of them in their new homes, the monsters with my Ugly Dolls (I have way too many) and Squidley with the squids I've made (plus a plush one from Hawaii!)





Once again, thank you soooooooo much LimeRiot! Everything was perfect and they're settling quite nicely into their new home. I really wish I could knit like that, I have to work on it so I can have an army!

Yay!! I'm so glad that you liked them. They seem to be settling right in to their new home Smiley. I'm glad they have already made some friends there!!

Squidley does have pipe cleaners in his tentacles...and watch out because the pokey ends slipped out a couple of times and bit me Smiley.

I've used pipe cleaners a few times, but I ran out and started using wire instead. Somehow this is less dangerous! Oh, and my cats loved the package too, Izzy (who has to help me open all my packages) was rubbing all over them and then all the cats (yes, we have 5) fought over the box, it was perfect kitty size! I hope your package comes soon, I want to see what you think!

The "bulldog" smiles on the monsters are soo cute!
What a perfect yarn for the squid! 
They all look at home now.   
Cats and their boxes. Cheesy...too true.

I received the MOST incredible amigurumi package from Alchamy513 today!! She is a very thoughtful and talented ami artist. I feel so lucky to have been partnered up with her for this swap.

I have an obsession with deep sea creatures - the weirder the better in my opinion. Alchamy chose this as her theme and crafted the most amazing critters for me.

First off...Cynthia the Cuttlefish!! The tentacles are incredible and I love the wavy fin!!


Next up...Agnes the Anglerfish!! Anglerfish are my favorite animals and this one is amazing. You can't see it in the picture but she has metallic teeth.


Alchamy's specialty...Gertrude the Giant Squid!! This little gal is incredible - she even has eyelids.


Last but not least...Nadine the Nautilus! This is made with fuzzy yarn and she is just great great great. Look at all these tentacles!


Here is the whole gang in their new home with some fellow swap pals. Unfortunately they seem to be hungry from their long journey across the country. Cynthia seems to have developed a taste for mini hippos, Gertrude is attempting to devour a whole guinea pig, Agnes is fishing for sock bunnies and Nadine appears to be a vegetarian because she's enjoying a little lime for dinner.



Thank you SO SO SO much, Alchamy513. I'm beyond thrilled to have my very own collection of deep sea friends!!

Yay! I really didn't think you were going to get them until tomorrow, but they were almost as quick as yours getting there! I love all the names, I'm usually not that creative (I have a bear named Bear and a penguin named Penguin...) but they fit them perfectly.

I'm totally in love with the action pic... Gertrude looks like she has a guinea pig mount!

Oh, i love sea creatures!  I've seen the monsters somewhere on the vast world of internet, I'm still working on knitting so I'll eventually try some knit amis.

This makes me excited to get my package!
