Welcoming More Cousins!

I've got two new cousins to welcome to the family this weekend, including our first ever Browncoat cousin. Ladyserephina is the proud creator of this little Jayne Cthulhu and as Becky pointed out on the comment's thread, "A deity who wears that hat isn't afraid of anything!"

The second new cousin comes from Tiffany . She followed the Tiny Cthulhu pattern as well, but hers came out a little differently. It was made with a F size hook and sport weight yarn. As Tiffany explains, "He came out so skinny, I decided to add legs to get him semi sitting, also added another line to the wings."

Even if he did come out a little different I think he looks great. I have to admit he does remind me a little bit of Futurama's Dr. Zoidberg though. Is anyone else seeing that? I think maybe it's the eyes and the straight tentacles.

Thanks again to everyone who has taken the time to send me pictures of the things they're making or inspired to make from my patterns. It's great to see them getting used. Now I have to go check my wool collection to see if I have the right colours to make a Browncoat hat for one of my own Cthulhus. Happy crocheting everyone!

First Cousins of the New Year!

Hello and Happy New Years to everyone! I've been watching the stat counter tick up over the past few days and I've had this secret hope that it would hit 100,000 before the new year and I'm so happy to see that it has. Thanks to everyone who has been visiting Cthulhu Crochet and Cousins. I hope that you've been enjoying yourselves and found some creative ideas here to inspire you. I'm afraid things are going to be pretty quiet around here over the next few months as I go back into hibernation. (Otherwise known as school!) On Monday I start my second semester of working towards getting my teaching certificate. Then mid-January I'll be taking over a grade 5 class full-time for two months for my teaching practicum. Since September our instructors have been warning us, "Say good-bye to your family and friends cause you're going to be busy." I can't wait...

Until then, I'm happy to introduce you to the first cousins of the new year. Clara has made this wonderful pair that she named Chillthulhu and Coalthulhu. Very cute! I urge everyone to click on the link above where Clara has photographed and recapped their first adventure in the great outdoors. I just wish the weather here was a bright and sunny as it is there. These cthulhus were made using my Tiny Cthulhu pattern which you can find in the column on the left in the My Free Patterns category.

Thanks again to everyone who has been visiting Cthulhu Crochet and Cousins. I wish you all the best in 2009!
