elder god for the younger son

I got out my copy of Creepy Cute Crochet to look for instructions on how to make the general body shape I wanted for the Mystery Animal. Stefan had other ideas, though. Stefan said he wanted "the green guy", otherwise known as Cthulhu. Luckily, he's a lot more friendly looking in a small crochet version.

Obviously, he needs eyes. I didn't have the right sized safety eyes so I figured I'd find something after he was finished. Unfortunately, I'm having trouble embroidering them on. I might take a page from Janice's book and get some felt.

The part that amuses me about all of this is that Cthulu (yes, without the second H) was Erik's screen name on the MUD where we met so I feel connected to that name. Stefan still calls this "that green guy" though, which is super cute. Also, he doesn't seem at all bothered by That Green Guy's lack of eyes.

    I still have safety eyes from when I made my cthulhu that are small ones if you still want safety eyes on him. Though if he's sewn up now I suppose it's too late for those! I think your wings turned out better than mine, I had a hard time following their instructions, but of course it was like one of my first projects when I took up crocheting again!

    This photo of Stefan really resembles the one of his mom on her web page. No denying him. (not that you want to)

    No, I certainly don't want to. He's darling. 🙂
