Oscar the Grouch Classic Crochet

It turns out you can find just about anything on eBay, including ancient, errr, classic Sesame Street crochet kits. Any softness the yarn in this kit had when it was made seems to have disappeared in the last few decades. Either that or it was pretty plasticky to begin with. Either way, it’s an authentic kit, so I made a go of it for a present for my wife. So far it’s been a lot of fun!

Stumpy the Crochet Stormtrooper

Picked up the Star Wars amigurumi crochet kit recently and decided to give the stormtrooper a try. Funny thing, ended up getting delayed on making the arms, so he just stood around like this for a bit until he was dubbed “Stumpy” affectionately.

Eventually he got arms, but until that point we were amused by… well, you know.
