Latest Developments at LabLinoleum

Here at LabLinoleum, we take our commissions seriously. So, when Noo over at Spitting Yarn inquired if I, LadyLinoleum, President and CEO of Research and Development at LabLinoleum, could create a creature inspired by a bone, I enthusiastically replied, "You betcha!" So, sprung from the ashes (or in this case, the bones) of the legendary Dr. Frankenstein is his compact skeletal cousin, Dr. Frankenfemur!





Since his creation from a lone skein of Lion Brand Micro Spun, this fanatical femur has been fine tuning his brilliant marrow, sharpening his surgical knowledge and practical skills, definitely thinking beyond the thigh, in order to help LabLinoleum reach it's full operating capacity. Before Dr. Frankenfemur arrived on the scene, LabLinoleum only had four slightly off balance Veggie Scientists, Dr. Manuel Mangoes and Carnivorous Carrots, in our employ, desperately attempting to keep up with the growing workload. Now that Dr. F is here, LabLinoleum will be able to focus more on research and development enabling the Lab to become a force in the areas of Vegionics (Dr. Manuel Mangoes specialty), Veggie Cloning (Carnivorous Carrots to head this project team) and Miscellaneous Creature Creation (Dr. Frankenfemur to spearhead effort).

We are very excited about the newest addtion to our scientific team and are pleased to see that Dr. Frankenfemur has hit the ground running with his very first Creature Creation...Frankenfemur's Monster!





This bone-buddy will be charged with assisting all of our scientists once we figure out how to give his marrow a little smart-start. Frankenfemur's Monster is a big boy. Wonderful when a little heavy lifting is needed (he currently works in our warehouse), but as I just stated he's a little slow upstairs. That's okay though. Dr. F hopes to have the marrowtardation issue fixed by the time he unveils his next creation...Bride of Frankenfemur! Stay tuned folks...

Happy Halloween Everyone!

I keep opening the drawer he is hidden away in and looking at him! My orthopaedic surgeon step dad is going to love him. Only trouble is, everyone else is going to feel left out!

So creative!

Will the monster and his bride produce phalanges?

Will you have a hand in it?

Happy Halloween!

Ha ha! Great for Halloween. I suppose it is only a matter of time before you have crocheted a whole skeleton! (yes, now that would be a labor of love)
