The Elder Gods are totally going to make me pay for this one

How did I not post about these?

Great googly-eyed Cthulu!

They’ve been done and given away for like two weeks now! I have to admit, they were not originally intended as a gift. You see, I came across this pattern on the interwebs, and while it is clearly intended for wee ones, I figured if I used a big fat yarn that would upsize enough for an adult. (This is a great way to upsize lots of patterns, by the way — my colleague Zontee wrote an article about it a while back.) I ended up using Hometown USA in Green Bay.

Turns out I was right, but not an adult with feet as big as mine. Fortunately, I have a dear friend who has wee feet (and whose handle on the interwebs is kid-cthulu — how much more perfect could that be?). And so these were duly passed along to her. And, having made the pattern once, I can see that it would be super easy to upsize just by adding some more stitches and adjusting the spacing of the tentacles, so I suspect a pair for me will be along shortly. Maybe mine will be in New Orleans French Berry. Fuschia Cthulu! I think the Elder Gods would approve.

Where Am I?
