Edward enjoys picnics in the park, duck-gazing, and frolicking among fields of wildflowers. He's really just like you and me - just in bear form!

12  Leopold the Snowman in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by hooked on amicute on: December 20, 2011 01:48:47 AM
Meet Leopold. He only likes to come out on cold, wintery days when you've got the seasonal affective disorder (S.A.D.) and you're caught looking longingly through the window of that ice cream shop. He's here to cheer you up!

13  Totoro, To-to-ro! Crocheted scoodie and hand-stitched romper in Halloween Costumes by hooked on amicute on: November 01, 2011 12:01:33 AM
Thumbs up to Miyazaki Hayao for creating my favorite childhood character and story. My sister and I saw ourselves as Satsuki and little Mei, frolicking Totoro's woods in our big, Alaskan backyard in the middle of nowhere. Every dark, frigid, wintery morning we walked to our bus stop anticipating the cat bus to come running up with its big smile and warm, fuzzy seats and take us to school. Pretend dust bunnies occupied the dark corners of our house.

This is a tribute to Totoro. I crocheted a scoodie (scarf + hood) and attached ears and a big, green leaf on top. I crocheted pockets to resemble paws onto the ends of the scarf part complete with long, brown Totoro nails. my romper is one i purchased from American Apparel. I cut out the mouth and gray belly spots from jersey knit material and hand-stitched the teeth. I then hand-sewed the fuzzy belly and and the mouth onto the romper WHILE wearing it and WHILE looking into a mirror... because the romper had an elastic band around the waist and would scrunch up if I took it off. So it took a while... but it was definitely worth it. I had gray boots and my co-worker happened to have fur laying about so i just wrapped it around my boots and sewed up the sides. I love my Totoro costume and I hope it provides you with a bit of inspiration to create something that commemorates the feel-good, happy, fuzzy moments of your childhood, too.

Happy Halloween! Thank you for taking a look!! Wink

The costume idea came from: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=382454.0

14  Skulls for my phalanges - new pic added in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by hooked on amicute on: October 11, 2011 02:00:34 AM
In honor of the month of October, I crocheted tiny skulls for my creepy fingers.

I didn't use a pattern - I looked at several crocheted skulls on Etsy and came up with my own version. The one on the first finger is my favorite and also the second one I created. The first one looks almost like a mask... Nevertheless, I love my growing army of skulls.

15  Crocheted brass knuckles = instantaneous badassness in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by hooked on amicute on: August 08, 2011 11:49:08 PM
Reasons to get your own set of crocheted brass knuckles:

  • You will look badass
  • Initial intimidation transitions to immediate life of the party
  • You can sit on them and they won't hurt your bum
  • You can wear them out and not receive a felony for possession of a dangerous weapon
  • Face punching people will be more pleasant for both parties

16  Timmy the Broken Condom: A socially inappropriate newborn baby hat in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by hooked on amicute on: June 27, 2011 02:40:14 AM
Timmy was born in a factory like all the other typical condoms. He's generic brand without all the doodads and colors, but he's anything but bland! Timmy is playful and sweet, charming and adventurous.

Timmy's hobbies:

    climbing trees

    hollering at cute girls

    resting on baby heads

    and he LOVES surprises!

Timmy enjoying the sun on a tree branch. What a nice treat after climbing.

Peace out, homies. I'm taking a nap!

19  Subsistence Bear Stocks up for Winter in Alaska in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by hooked on amicute on: March 30, 2011 02:05:51 AM
Someone asked me if I knew how to crochet an Alaskan Kuskokwim style canoe. Uh, no. But I tried and I think the end result was a successful, cute ode to the traditional Alaskan lifestyle. The recipient shot her first black bear (I know, this must be horrifying to you animal lovers) a couple years ago so we thought it would be ... fitting... for lack of better word, to have a fluffy black bear scrounging for blueberries, cranberries and salmon before the harsh winter.

The Vegan Voyeur: A Tofu in Disguise
He's watching you... not eat meat
About MEAT: A Recurring Nightmare
Lately, The Vegan Voyeur has been having very vivid and disturbing dreams about meat processing and packaging plants, the meat department in the supermarket and of sizzling steaks on the grill. He tosses and turns all night long, dragging himself into work half an hour late.  
He wonders: is this a sign that I should start eating meat?
