I have been in a horrible slump lately-- haven't touched a project in months. :( 

I crochet, have since '96. (Wow, that is a LONG time)  I'm the same name over on ravelry as I am here, but I don't post, and rarely update projects.  I'd love to learn how to knit socks, but I am so much faster at crochet that I do that instead.  I make lots of afghans, and the occasional article of baby clothing. Some stuffed animals. A few scarves. My nephew likes to play with the llama I made his sister when she was born.  The loops for "fur" are fun. :)

I've done some amigruimi, which are super cute, and super fast.  I should start up again, just to get something done!

I crochet, sometimes. I usually only do it during the winter though. I am over on Ravelry but haven't updated in forever. Here I am. :) I have been collecting amigruimi patterns for a while now but haven't tackled one yet. I need to change that.

What?  Me?  Crochet?  I don't do that... I'm a virile young man, how dare you insinuate that I would take time away from body building and watching Sports Center to make girly things out of yarn.

I've made like 15 hats in the last week and a half... most were black or white with red trim and devil horns, the rest were cupcakes.  I've also been making one of these, as a prototype.  Mine is a panda instead of a monster.

Oh, and if I were on Ravelry, which I'm not saying I am, my user name would be souldonut76.

I knit! I'm on ravelry as scurvygirl.

I've been making tons of Star Trek insignia double-knit potholders.

Also, I just learned how to knit fingerless gloves. My first pair were TARDIS themed.

My sister found a cute crochet house/purse that I am going to try and make.

Kwyj, I love the panda blanket idea- what a cute item! the monster would be a little scary, I think.  Good choice to try a different creature for the head.

I like the monsters,they're too cute to be scary.  We happened to have a scrap of fleece with pandas on it that was the right size.  So panda it is.

That is so cute! (Aside: Is cute really how Walt and Jesse should be described?)

I love her Bob Ross, too!
