Day 82: Crocheted Handbag

I made this for happy_potterer, as a birthday gift. I didn't have a pattern; I just started crocheting, and I thought it turned out pretty cute. I love the colors; I used a self-striping soy wool (Paton SMS, I think it's called). I'd use that yarn again, for sure.

Day 83: Pensive Cthulhu

This amigurumi Cthulhu was crocheted for edda (for her honorable mention in my recent contest). Here, he sits in the yard, overlooking the area of California he managed to ravage before being sent off to the eastern U.S. to drive still more people insane with his cuteness. I adore the way this guy turned out, and am currently crocheting one for myself. *loves*

Yeah, I was happy with the way the purse turned out. I have plans to make something similar for myself one of these days. :)

Hee - Okay, I'll give you a quickie Cthulhu-101. Cthulhu is definitely evil. Like WAAAAY evil, but he's just so cool that he has a big cult following of people (like myself and many others here) who just adore him. :D He was created by horror writer H.P. Lovecraft, and he's one of the "Great Old Ones" - a terrifying, evil god whose hobbies include driving people insane and/or eating them. Fortunately, he's said to be asleep at the bottom of the ocean (so not wreaking devastation upon at at the moment). For some reason, like I said he's become a sort of cult figure. During the 2004 election, I saw people wearing "Why Vote for the Lesser of the Evils" t-shirts with pictures of Cthulhu (and I think some people even wrote his name in on their ballot).

Most people I know say it "keh-THOO-loo," although Lovecraft himself wasn't even really sure how to pronounce it (or, rather, he pronounced it in various different ways). I really don't quite understand just why Cthulhu is so cool, but he is. There's just something hilarious about him, and cute, too (at least when crocheted. We have a plush Cthulhu doll, too, which Connor cuddles up with at night. We figure Cthulhu is scarier than anything that might "go bump in the night," so he's a good bedtime buddy). :D

I mean, he's also right here, but still.
