This is NOT your mother's crochet. If you want to see doilies, go elsewhere.
"I'm not really sure how I came up with the Hyperbolic Caterpillar Of Doom, but I'm glad I did. He turned out pretty neat. He has a lot of caterpillar personality for not being able to move or eat anything. He's great at starting conversations, hanging from the wall, or quietly guarding your coffee table. He also likes to be hugged, even though his name might not make you think to hug him. His one eye will gaze at you lovingly for all time and he likes to be given as a gift too. He's totally one of a kind. "
And then there's the Singing Land Siren.
As Granma says:
"She’s lured in many a biker, weary from being on the road, riding with the wind in their hair. Her melodious voice can be heard from miles away and to each man she sounds a little different. They are entranced by her beautiful melodies and never see the end coming, while their bikes continue down the road, less the men riding them, until they crash and burn somewhere on the shoulder.Singing Land Siren is crochet out of cotton yarn and thread. "
I think the extra eyes on top of her head and the beaded tentacles are a nice touch, don't you?
