I feel the chemicals creeping in.

 My new obsessions! I am going to try and pick up the book of patterns today and get cracking on crocheting these awesome little dolls. Of course my unborn monster needs ALL of them, but I also want to make some for Vincent, Evan, Livvie, etc. So I need to get started so I can get over the first pancake phenomenon.

I taught myself how to knit from a book so I'm sure I can learn how to crochet. I heard the patterns can be a little tricky if you're already used to typical crochet patterns...but I'm not! I'm unspoiled! Working on these little critters will give me something to do besides watch 7 seasons of Gilmore Girls when my stomach is feeling lame. I'm really pumped.

First up for my bundle of horror...robot, ninja, and possibly Spartan.

Awesome! I have that book. Once you get the basics down, it's easy and most of the bodies aew the same. If you need any help, let me know.

The little guys in that picture look like the sack people in 'Little Big Planet'. Looking forward to seeing how this goes, and I'm sure Vincent will be thrilled if he were to get something like this, at least when he's old enough to not just try and eat it.

I haven't been able to get it yet. It was out at Boarder's so I'll probably get in online. It's called "Creepy Cute Crochet" by Christen Haden. I think it came out in 2008.
