0

Horror

Welcome to the second day of October! Thomas Hewitt, or as he is better known, Leatherface,is ready to wreck someone’s day with his chainsaw, but at least he will get a new face out of the deal.

Special for 2017, Greybriar Hollow presents the 31 days of Halloween. Each day in October one pattern (minimum) will be released. I hope you enjoy making this little Halloween Horror Hugger. Each hugger also comes with a pattern for his or her weapon of destruction. From Carrie’s bucket of pig blood (the catalyst for her power) to Jason’s Machete, From Pinhead’s cube to Ash’s chainsaw hand and Boomstick, no one is left behind.

Each Hugger uses 7” rollers in the arms to make them poseable and 15mm safety eyes. Greybriar Hollow uses and recommends Glasseyesonline.com.

Please join us for more fun at Greybriar Hollow all month long.

Each hugger also can be made using roughly 175 yards of yarn.

In case you missed the fun, yesterday we had a popularity contest for the Greybriar Hollow pattern.  It was definitely fun!  There was one clear winner, but before we get to that, lets take a look at the runners up.  This was definitely a contest for the record books.  And the contenders were all as different as they could be.

First up in 2nd place was Sharknado.  In like a whirling dervish, this is the pattern who definitely preferred cutting up in shop class over academics.  Sharknado is not limited by what science tells us can happen, but is always up for a ripping good time.

In 3rd pace we have Lucy Morbid.  She is the creepy pattern who sits in the corner and makes cryptic and dark comments to other patterns.  She is the one you go to when you need to learn more about the darker side of ami making.

In 4th place, is Fat Unicorn.  She is the chubby pattern who is super nice to everyone, but really doesn’t fit into any specific group.  She is too short and round to fit in with the other unicorns and their vain beauty, but everyone loves her anyway.

In 5th place, is everyone’s favorite witch pattern.  Winnifred is just waiting to be made for some unsuspecting child so she can practice putting spells on them.  She is still seeking youth, even though she is always going to be same age since she will of course be made from yarn.

In 6th place is Sugar Skull Cat.  She is the artsy pattern, all about freedom of expression and letting your true colors show.  There is no wrong way to add color and design in her world.  She loves it all equally, but she tends to be caught up in art to the exclusion of all else.

And last in 7th place is everyone’s favorite couple.  Eartha and Edgar Fox pattern is just an all around fun time, and everyone loves them.  They are kind and thoughtful, the kind of pattern everyone wants to be around.

And now, the time has come to announce our winner.  Like any beauty queen, she came out WAY ahead, but her message is one of peace of serenity.  She has no idea of her own grace, content to spend her time bringing joy to others……Serenity!!!

Don’t Wanna Get Eaten By The Sharknado

Sharknado2

“Shark!

Shark!

Shark!

Shark!

Go, go, go, go, go, go, go

Run away from the sharknado

It’s your greatest foe, foe, foe

Don’t wanna get eaten by the sharknado

By air, by land, by sea

I see that sharknado coming for me

I can’t run, I can’t hide

I just don’t wanna die

SHARKNADO!”

Ok, Ok, now I have THAT song stuck in my head again.  The fact is that I have this insane thing for bad Sci-Fy original creature features.  I used to say the cheesier the better, but after the new SHarknado movie came out, I am drastically rethinking that.  I mean, light sabers?  COME ON!  But the first two were delightfully lame and cheesy, with bad one liners and improbably events.  And my kids think they are cool cool.  So, I had to make a Sharknado,.  But there was a caveat.  I wanted the sharks to be mean and real looking.  I didn’t want androgenous sea creatures.

It was with this in mind, that the crocheted Sharknado was born!  Inside its whirling, you will find a Great White, a Thresher, a Goblin Shark, a Hammerhead, a Whale Shark (Because you know they aren’t scary at all but can you imagine being squashed by one!?” and a Nurse Shark.  Directions are even included on making the twister.

And if you just love the sharks, I have some good news.  Larger versions of a couple of them are coming soon.  Specifially I have been asked to make the goblin shark and thresher into larger, more cuddly versions.

My kids have had a blast.  They load up the ‘nado with the sharks and start spinning it, slinging sharks at each other!   Of course, they sing the theme song the whole time.  It’s hilarious to watch them shriek and run away from flying sharks.

You can make your own, or if you are wanting to purchase one already completed, you can find them listed in my Etsy shop.
