Endless summer inspired yarnbomb

There is something completely magical about the relationship my husband has with our son.  They are similar, but my son is just wackadoo enough to surprise paul...a quality I assume he gets from me.  Paul took up surfing recently and Finnegan insists he'll surf one day.  And he will.  Because we don't just say things we do them.  One of those crucial traits I'm trying to instill.  So, one day, they were walking into the waves together...in their wetsuits..and I was just so moved by it...and I grew up watching a lot of surf movies...and I remembered the endless summer movie poster..so this is my homage to that...and to Finnegan and Paul

Saga Dolls

Okay so I LOVE Saga.  It is by far my favorite comic in years.  I've always been a huge Brian K. Vaughan fan because he puts a lot of soul into his writing...and I really love that about this comic...plus Fiona Staples artwork on this is AMAZING.  Like anyone who takes a cursory glance at any of my Saga comics is simply blown away by her artistry.  That said, I was inspired.  I'm usually pretty busy making dolls for the cash dogs...but I had 7 hours today...and I made these...and I love them. LOVE them.  I don't know what to do with them, but I'm super happy with how they turned out...especially Marko.




If you're unfamiliar with what they look like, here's the cover from the first issue.  They're like awesome alien hipsters.

i love you but.... Yarnbombs

i love you, but you don't know what you're talking about. you are beautiful, but you don't mean a thing to me. and it's the words of others. backhanded and cruel. and true maybe. people love me. and i often don't know what i'm talking about. i am beautiful. and i've meant nothing to plenty. and I heard the first line in Moonrise Kingdom, and it resonated, and then reminded me of the second line, which comes from an old Death Cab for Cutie song...and I feel at my core like these lines. contradictory and absurd. and they bounced around my head. and I had to get them out in the only way I really know.

and if you found one of them. then thanks for liking it enough to find out what it's about. or to care what I think. maybe let me know what you think? i think you know what you're talking about. and you mean something to me.

These can be found on Abbot Kinney in Venice and Main St in Santa Monica.  You're welcome westside.

Crochet Airbender doll

My kid and I have been going through the Avatar: The last airbender episodes on the old Amazon Prime.  We're having an awfully good time of it too.  I couldn't resist making a cute little Aang for Finnegan to squeeze while we watch our episodes, although truthfully, Finnegan always roots for the bad guy.

Crochet Archer doll

I crocheted an Archer doll for a friend.  He's pretty nondescript, and I feel like this could also pass as a Don Draper doll, but you know..who can resist a guy in a nice suit right? right?

Captain America Crochet Doll

I'm totally proud of this little guy.  He's a custom order.  He may be the "first avenger" I crochet, but I doubt he'll be the last.

Crocheting the band phish!

okay, so I did it...I crocheted the entire band Phish...now I'm not a Phish fan by any stretch of the imagination, but someone hit me up on the old etsy site for some custom dolls...it was a nice little commission, so here they are in all their Phish glory.



Projects in the works:  Freddie Mercury, Archer, suggestions?
