A Lil" Loopy

Today I’d like to take a moment to deviate from the usual food related articles to tell you all about Art’s awesome sister. 

Many years ago, she taught herself how to crochet and knit with the aid of books.  Her hobby grew, as they tend to do, and she has recently opened her own Etsy store to sell her amazing creations.  I’m the proud owner of a few, and I’d like to share them with you. 


If you play Mario, you’ll recognize this set of mushrooms.  She started making them for her Mario-loving daughter and I thought they were just about the coolest thing I’d ever seen.  I have dreams of decorating my Christmas tree completely with these mushrooms.  (I love the evil looking eyes of the poison mushroom.)


This is Cthulhu, all cute and crocheted. 


Cthulhu is, of course, dreaming in R’lyeh but, in the meantime, you can enjoy his likeness in lovely green (or any other color) yarn.  I sort of want to buy a hundred of these and plant them all over my house in unexpected places. 


This is a custom ordered scarf and hat which I asked her to make for Art, who shaves his head and needs a bit of warmth in the cold winter months.  The yarn is lovely, thick, warm and cozy. 

And those are my prized possessions from A Lil’ Loopy.  If you get the chance, please stop by her Etsy shop and send some business her way!  She’s happy to take custom orders and she’s very easy to work with – her collection is expanding every day. 

Happy birthday to one of the coolest sisters-in-law I could ever hope for!
