Still Flying!

I'm back! I know it's been a while, but I'm hoping to get back to posting on here with some regularity. For the last couple months I've been completing the practicum portion of my training to become a teacher. For six weeks I had to teach full time in a grade 5 classroom, plan lessons, mark student work and deal with all the other minor to major emergencies that crop up in the average school day. It was stressful, exhausting, but also a lot of fun. It was also life-consuming and I'm very happy to be able to take back a little time for myself. Hello blog and blog readers, how I've missed you...

Of course the other side effect of this life-consuming endevour is that I don't have any of my own crafty projects to show off right now, or even any idea what's been going on in the world of crochet. I have been diligently keeping track of all the wondeful e-mails I've gotten over the past couple months from people who are using my patterns, so I'll start out these first few posts showing off some of those creations. Adding to our family of Cthulhu Cousins today we have these contributions from Sarah. I like how she's added hair to them, It gives them a certain punk quality.

And now in the name of shameless promotion...Remember how I'm always telling you that my boyfriend is both wise and witty? Well, now you can decide for yourself by checking out his new blog SF Kapow. You probably won't come across too much crafty info there, but I'm confident that many of the people who visit Cthulhu Crochet and Cousins are also science fiction fans. At SF Kapow you'l find discussion about all things science fiction including weekly commentary on Joss Whedon's latest TV venture Dollhouse. Hope you enjoy!
