The complementary colors really tie the chaos of the different granny squares.

Long live free form crochet!

oh I love it so!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nice job!

My roommates have been pestering me forever to make them a brain slug. Now I have no more excuses I'll have to get on it.

Thanks again for all the great comments!

I'm working on reconstructing the pattern. I swear I'll post it soon!

What a great idea!!!!!!

Now I want to do all my favorite works of art in felt.

You did such good job capturing Picasso's style in embroidery!

This Rocks!!

So beautiful and accurate! I find it so hard to get felt to curve and to make edges smooth and your ship is such a good example of both!

Nice work! This Rocks!

Green Eggs and Ham!

I will crochet them in a box.
I will crochet them with a fox.
I will crochet them in a house.
I will crochet them with a mouse.
I will crochet them here or there.
I do like them anywhere.
I will crochet green eggs and ham.
For I do love that Seussy man.

Hurray for Dr. Seuss! These cuties are made of %100 cotton yarn with a size E hook. I made up the pattern as I went along, though I was inspired by the Free Little Fried Egg Pattern at http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=5247521 for the eggs. To make the edges of the eggs uneven I alternated using single, half-double,and double stitches.

I had a great time making them and now they hold a place of honor in our kitchen.

**2011 EDIT**

Hello All!!! After much time away from craftster because of illness, I am back and responding to comments again. Thanks to everyone who commented on this post. Your encouragement is much appreciated. You are all awesome!

I have no idea what compelled me to crochet this diabolical creature, except that he is cute as hell... And my roomates badgered me until I did it.


We love ATHF and we laughed so hard at this episode while feeling so dirty. If you haven't seen it check it out on You Tube.

Thanks for all the comments! Cutie Cthulhu will be sure to give you a quick death when he crushes this dimension.

The tentacles are actually very simple. I just chained about 10 stitches and then did 2 single crotches in every chain. That made them all twisty. Then I slip stitched some gray to the under sides of the tentacles to make them scarier and so they would match the edging on the wings.

The rest of the body  is just simple ball shapes.

I laughed hysterically at Craft magazine's article on crocheting imitation designer handbags.  Crafting your own version of super price inflated brand really comments on and subverts the value people place on branding.

Anyway, enough theory, I had to make my own!
I was going to make something really gaudy, but I had a wedding to go to and no evening purse, so I decide to make one to go with my black 50's style dress.
This is based on an actual Chanel bag, though I can't find the picture right now.
You can't tell from the pic but the light yarn is a shiny metalic silver and the black yarn has a nice sheen which really dresses the purse up. It also has metalic silver edging along the seam that doesn't show in the pic.

I did indeed wear it at the wedding and it looked fabulous.
