Carboloaded Crochet and Pirates!

Yes folks it's the moment you've all been waiting for: Cheez-Its and Churros and DONUTS, oh my! All of these fabulous crocheted, eyeball-sportin', carbo-based creatures can be found on ONE webpage! Whooohooo! Can I tell you all that this website is taking me a REALLY LONG time to complete! Oh well, I am having fun and hopefully I won't bore you all TO DEATH with my web construction sloth-fest.

Onto more of my non-functional fare...

What is a mermaid to do without a pirate to seduce?

These fabuloso pirate duds (i) cannot be worn (by most of us that is - read "must be peg-leg ready"), (ii) are fashioned out of acrylic yarn (I love acrylic...it's cheap and there aren't any dyelot issues) and (iii) duds are designed and crocheted by moi using single crochet throughout. Oh, this guy is a little shorter than the mermaid, but he likes tall chicks.
