My friend J.Bone (this is his real name) is an illustrator who makes ridiculously cute little crochet characters. Usually without patterns. This is so the pasttime of a kid from the gifted class I can’t even handle it.
He has made many of these little balls of awesome- particularly worth checking out are his crocheted sock monkeys (the irony! they are not made of socks, but rather of crochet! and they are extra-cute!) and the lady-friend of the caveman above, who has very shapely legs and a Flintstone-esque hairdo. I also like his X-ray Barba Papa. These and more can be found on his cleverly-named craft blog, skein and bones– so named because he is a slender man with the surname Bone, and because a skein is a hank of yarn. It works on so many levels.
What else would be excellent made in crochet? Perhaps… um… a crochet Barack Obama? I’m just saying.
