Today I offer a personal post ( … with a library tie-in, of course!).
Last month, Aaron and I decided to teach ourselves how to crochet and checked out Creepy Cute Crochet: Zombies, Ninjas, Robots, and More! from our public library. A few days later, we were chaining, single crocheting, double crocheting, half-double crocheting, treble crocheting, and more. We have YouTube Donna to thank for showing us how.
Together, we crocheted 31 tiny devils, ninjas, aliens, vampires, robots, knights, clerics, grim reapers, Amazon warriors, skeletons, and Cthulhus between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Affectionately, we have called these our “Creatures,” and we hope you like them as much as we do.
Ever since our felted piggy incident two Christmases ago, we’re addicted to giving DIY gifts. We like that it makes gift-giving a little more personal, and we get to have fun spending extra time together in the weeks leading up to the holidays, too.
I think I’m partial to the tiny Cthulhus, maybe just because I really like their wiggly eyes. I’m also fond of the devils’ curly tails. To see photos of all the creatures we made, plus close ups, click here to head over to the Flickr album. Merry Creature!
