That's exactly what I thought it was, it certainly looks very similar!

I'll try that again!

I see on the same website they had made another in black/white.

Why on earth would anyone make these????

How strange !! laugh

Hey TA wave- thanks for the link- I was just thinking to myself that the ideal place to learn to crochet might well be a turorial on attic 24 /do you mind if I knit.

Great minds¦¦.big_laugh

But...why wouldn't you want a Cthulhu ski-mask? Imagine the terror you could insight in children while tearing down the ski run wink  I've seen knitted Cthulhu, stuffed felt Cthulhu and even a sock-monkey Cthulhu but that's the first crocheted or knitted mask!  Last year I embroidered a "Cthulhu loves you" design on a onesie for a friends baby shower - one really has to get the rugrats learning about the elder gods at an early age, so much more interesting than the usual ducks & bunnies sort of stuff. big_laugh

 

 

You guys not into H.P. Lovecraft huh?

it's  like a fuzzy boiler suit with feet. I'm trying to rmember what we call them in this country....a babygrow I think. Which is a much odder name really, when you think about it. You can get them for grown ups now also (well, I say grown ups. physically full sized people anyway, if not really all that mature)

I kinda want one, but they are probably the single least sexy item of nightware ever.

Though given that most nights these days I go to bed snuffling and snorting like some sort of miniature warthog I doubt being dressed as a giant toddler would really make a significant difference.

When will I get rid of this damn cold?!

 

And the cthulhu mask is ace. It could be done in a sort of flesh tone to make an Ood from Doctor Who maybe?

Intolerance will not be tolerated.

Just had to google ood and cthulhu, bit wiser, but not much. Never been a big doctor who fan, remember as kid, when the daleks came on I used to hid behind the sofa with a cushion over my face...how time change, now a big horror and gore fan.

As for the adult babygrow things, they are supposed to be all the rage,  what about knitting one?

I used to be one of those poor kids that had a knitted swimming costume - god I can still remember it...gosh two childhood memories in one post

Knitted swimming costumes- oh yes, I remeber sitting in a pool on the beach filling the front of mine with wet sand, then standing up and watching it drop down to my knees as the top stretched to infinity....hilarious.It was never quite the same shape again.

wave An adult sized 'babygrow' sounds good to me, or the sleep suits with the 'plastic-type' feet in, I'd love one of those, I feel the cold awfully.
 

Hope that you get better soon, takes some shifting doesn't it ?wave

It looks a bit like a 'Simpson' character with a chicken's comb on its nose!
