I made this hat for a child of a woman I only know through Ravelry. She's swapping me this hat for some beautiful Japanese silk (I think I got the better end of the deal, lol - but she doesn't want it, so whatevs). I made the pattern up as I went, but if anyone would like it, I could write it up. It was really quick and easy. I used pipe cleaners to keep the nubs and ears up and some left over Cotton Ease of a friends :P.

The pattern is a modified version of “Hooray for Me” gloves. Longer, mock cabled cuff, and I added the convertible flap to change it into mittens.
I'm calling them my “Dainty Rogue Gloves” as an illusion to one of my favorite George Meridith quotes, “She’s a dainty rogue in porcelain,” from his novel “The Egoist.” It means she’s a rebel posing as an upright lady, and that’s totally the girl I made these for ^_^. These gloves are lovely and pretty, but slightly deceiving. When worn as a mitten, the cable runs up the middle almost like the wearer is flipping the bird :D
And then for the hubby I made a Zombie Octopus! BEHOLD:
I modified the Common Octopus by Hansi Singh (which I've made numerous times before) into my own creepy, murderous, undead version.
I'm calling him the Zombie Octie. Not quite an octo-pus anymore due to a number of his limbs being half eaten off, also there seems to be some kind of brain matter or guts coming out of his head. He holds in his nubs his lunch, also known as a human brain.
What does he want?! BRAINS!
When does he want it?! BRAAAAAAAINS!
Zombie Octie then decided yarn-brains were not sufficient and decided to attack me... That makes me a zombie now too, I guess... Damnit.
