Camping crochet

Miranda and I are camping in the woods for a few days before she heads off to Rutgers.  I decided her dorm needed a lucky cat

Part of Miranda's go-to-college blanket

this is the first big square of miranda's solar system blanket


I enjoy video games.  Always have.  I might not have time to play them very often, but I will never forget how it feels to totally obsess over a game, nor will I ever fault anyone else for *being* obsessed over a game.  On that note, I have to say that while Minecraft is a game I'm not really down with, I recognize and appreciate that Bri, my niece, is a total nerdhead over it!  I spent a lot of time researching the game characters to find one I could make for her birthday.  So, tada, Enderman.
Don't look him directly in the eyes.  Better yet, don't really look at him above his knees.  He'll think you want to fight.
I based my pattern on WolfDreamer's pattern, although I did modify it slightly because apparently I can never just follow a pattern as it is written.  The end result was great and Bri seems to genuinely love it, so success!

A moose for Ross

I made a little moose for Ross, since it is his birthday today and he's a fan of these oversized members of the deer family.  He worked up quickly and I think he turned out pretty cute.  I found a free pattern for him online, but can't seem to locate the link at this moment.  As soon as I find it, I'll add it to this post. *edit-Here is the pattern by aphid777.  It's a really sweet moose and I'm working on another one currently.
