They sit there innocuously--a couple skeins of yarn, a
crochet hook, and a yarn needle. Will they become something useful, something
unusual, something cute, or something creepy? All they need is the perfect
pattern and a dash of inspiration.

Creepy Never Looked
There's something magical about taking a piece of string and
one simple hook and creating something that has a personality. Sometimes, this
means making a sweater or hat with just the right combination of stitch pattern
and yarn that evokes a certain feel. For this book, however, I took it a step
further. I wanted to create projects that made me want to hug them as I
finished them. I realized that if I made a whole book of fuzzy ducklings,
puppies, and babies I would probably die of cuteness overload, so I opted to
steer clear of the mainstream. Instead, I set my sights on a world of evil
robots, angry plants, and fanged bunnies. (They need hugs, too!)

Inside you'll find a menagerie of amigurumi softies, critter-themed accessories, and unusual gifts
for creature-lovers of all ages.
The next time you look at a skein of yarn, I hope that you
see the monster trapped inside, waiting for you to let it out.

I am in love with the Sasquatch Slippers and Mittens. This
slipper and mitten combo is the perfect combination of scary and huggable. And
best of all, the pattern is sized for babies, toddlers, children, women, and
men. That means I am making a pair for niece and a pair for myself.
