Title: Clam and Lobster: Amazing "Surf's Up!" Amigurumi!
Post by: PrettyCranium on October 10, 2007 09:53:33 AM
The patterns are from Crafty Alien (www.craftyalien.com) and are absolutely fabulous.  I bought the kits, which eliminated the need to even try to find the right yarns.  Crafty Alien was very helpful with some errata for the clam.  There were also some errata on the lobster that I have e-mailed her about.

These were my first felting project -- I felt weird putting the lobster into hot water!   :o







They keep cute-ing me out with their eyes.

Absolutely adorable!  I am being cuted out as well.

I'm thinking about making the lobster.  Would you mind posting the errata you found with the pattern?

Did the lobster turn red in the water?  ;D (I had to, I'm sorry for the bad joke).

They look SO cute and well done! I'm going to have to look for more crafty alien stuff!

Ack! I cannot believe how much I want these- it is making me physically hurt! (wow- that was super drama queen of me, but it's TRUE!)

I have a friend who loves seafood whose birthday is Saturday- I think I have to make these for him. Thank you SO much for the fantastic pictures!

These are SO CUTE! I love the lobster.

I felt weird putting the lobster into hot water!   :o
When I was little my mom got a live one and I was playing with it, and then she put it into the boiling pot of water to cook.  :'( I can't eat lobster anymore.

Their eyes are soooo charming! I love the clam for cuteness, but I have this lobster thing, so the lobster is my favorite.

I just looked at the patterns that they offer and when I get paid on Monday, I will be making a large order-including the lobster and clam.  I think I will also be making a turkey and the rooster: one of my best friends collects chickens & roosters and that would be the perfect Christmas present!

Thanks for all the responses and comments guys!  I really have to commend Crafty Alien on the wonderful patterns.  They are a joy to knit and responsible for the cuteness.

I'll post the errata for the lobster as soon as possible, I need to find my scribbles.
