Vulture Chow, your creations are amazing!
Everyone says crochet is easier than knitting, but it's something I haven't learned (yet). I've knitted sweaters and socks, along with other things. Looks like I'm in for a bit of self-teaching, inspired by you! Thanks!

The cast claw you gave me last year is one of the things that I treasure, and wear every day... I put it on leather, with a deep red clear glass bead, and people comment on it alot. It has a nice polish, too.

I am an absolutely atrocious teacher. Just the worst. I'm happy to help out with advice, but people would be better off watching youtube videos.

Awesome stuff! I am a crocheter too, actually working on some crocheted costume pieces right now to while away the winter and get ready for the burn.

I am definitely going to have to come check out your stuff, very impressive work.

Pure talent. And I'm envious. I've never understood you one stick people, but love the end result.

Need crochet gifts for this year. Having done scarves two years in a row, what does everyone thing of beer koozies? They can double as random pouches. Any other suggestions? Cant be too complicated if I'm aiming for a significant number of them.

I've been wanting a cotton snood (no not sham's :/), something white, pink, or beige. Can't get shit together though to learn how to do the stitch. The beer koozie would work. Can I have one in cotton yarn? I'll be wearing it all day in the sun, and acrylic just isn't so nice on the neck at 100 degrees.

Stand down everyone. I figured out the gifts this year. Penis chapstick cozies:

Practical, hilarious, easy to make. Small to pack. I'll add a loop so it can be clipped to things.

Absolutely stop by. I'm not sure where BDC or my camp in it will be yet, but if you come to the Eplaya Meet & Greet you can check it out.
