Hey all, so I'm really into Futurama (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Futurama). My boyfriend and I bought all 4 seasons and I've seen every episode... at least 5 times each!  Grin I just think it's the cleverest little show!
So I was browsing Ravelry and came across this pattern from http://www.hookandneedles.com/2008/10/17/brain-slugs/

Here's my version Cheesy

I used Caron Simply Soft Eco (best yarn EVER!) in Limelight

here it (?) is on one of my home-grown pumpkins Smiley


and on my head (me not suspecting a thing...):


Oh and...By the way... you might want to switch to a garlic shampoo  Wink


I made the slime around the edges a little more un-even than what the pattern calls for to make it look a little more "slimey." (Sorry you can't really see that in the pictures.)

Hope you enjoy! Happy Halloween! Grin

(p.s. yes that is a Bender shirt, and yes I got it from my bf from thinkgeek. Awesomeness, I know Smiley )

That's really great for your first amigurumi.  Im in the middle of making a brain slug.  Havent made nibbler yet but, the pattern looks amazing.

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.
