the virus that causes the common cold looks like:

so I crocheted one... I actually got the idea off of thinkgeek.com who has a line of plushies but at least I made up the crochet pattern myself!

I think for Xmas I will crochet a whole set for my nephew of childhood type illnesses - like the cold, chicken pox, fifth disease, mumps, strep, etc just because little boys have lots of germs and they might as well have some cute ones thrown in there too!!!

I have the pattern to post but I will have to do it tomorrow.... battery is dying....

that is really, really adorable.  my high school AP bio teacher always had us do arts and crafts projects. (needless to say, i loved her.)  perhaps she will be getting a little present too!

I agree it super cute.  I'd say it's even cuter in crochet form. You've given me the itch to make some of the others for myself! Tongue

DAMN! I just noticed I'm in the crochet section-I can't crochet well-think it'd be easy to do a knit version?

Oooh, it's so silly and cute! I have a friend who has had mono for literally 18 months. I should crochet him a mono bug.
