Fred Flare

I just love fred flare. I want to either buy or make everything on the site. I met the owners at a gift show about a year ago - two adorable young gay men with a great, playful design sense. They quite frequently have crocheted items. I just found this ghost necklace. It's so clever! I assume that for $9 it's made on a machine. Just as well - crocheting something that small would be really hard on the fingers.

These dolls are apparently making quite a splash at the various gift shows this year. It's not crochet, of course, but it seems like a great one-skein project. There are many more here. All handmade in Thailand.

Dread Pirate Sam

What Not to Crochet posted this gem earlier this week. While the blog is generally right on - there's certainly a mountain of bad crochet out there - I kind of like this Johnny Depp-ish pirate. Sure, he's campy, but I can think of a dozen people who would laugh hysterically if given one for a gift.
