A blog about my life, knitting, and other stuff.

June 27, 2008


Pattern: Grim Reaper from Creepy Cute Crochet
Yarn: Cascade 220 Superwash and Lamb's Pride Worsted
Hook: Boye E
Notes: I worked this guy at a much tighter gauge than the other two from the book. The results are great but the kids don't like that he's smaller than the zombie and vampire. I got Fimo clay for the scythe and asked Wes to make it for me last night. He's much better at stuff like that than I am. I used buttons for eyes with a shank on the back so they seem kind of bulgy. The first time I sewed them on I had them too far set and it looked just like Igor from Young Frankenstein.
