OK. Maybe I’m totally revealing my age here, but man there was just something so soothing (and yes happy like happy clouds!) about watching Bob Ross’s TV show on PBS. This amigurumi (crocheted) rendition by Allison of CraftyIsCool does him justice.
Amigurumi Crocheted Pills
Jess Rollar of “Milky Robot” makes utterly adorable and original amigurumi plush toys. I can’t seem to get over my love of these pill shaped toys. So weird and awesome! Might have to pop over to her Etsy shop and see if they are for sale!
Adorable Crocheted Critters by MillieFern
This Etsy shop was a reader submission and let me just say… DARN! It was hard to choose which of the many awesome little creatures to feature here!
Etsy seller MillieFern makes super sweet crocheted critters. And according to her shop description she loves custom orders. So, if you have a friend with a unique animal obsession, you now know where to go to get a custom gift made!
P.S. The tooth has a little pocket in the back so it is Officially Tooth Fairy Compliant!
(Thanks kaybi03 for this submission!)
Crocheted Yetis Dancing [video]
A while back the t-shirt website Threadless.com held a contest called Threadknits where people had to crochet or knit an homage to one of the t-shirts on Threadless. This crocheted yeti was one of the winners. The creator of these adorable yetis made this video further demonstrating their awesomeness. (My favorite made is the indie band dancing! haha. Too true.)

Fire at a Local Mushroom Farm
I feel like Howie Woo should win some sort of Nobel Prize for being able to do so many amusing things so well. He’s a cartoonist, he makes movies, he’s funny, he’s got a really wacky imagination… and oh yeah, he also crochets like a mofo.
The picture above is of a crocheted vignette he came up with after reading a story in the news about a big fire at a local mushroom farm.
See what I mean?
