I for one, can think of nothing BETTER than crocheting a lobster! Oooh and if you ever write up a pattern for a 3D one (to be your crab's friend) I will be a willing test crocheter!!

Ellen Bloom said...

If I crochet one, I'm gonna call it a crawfish and make it ORANGE!
Congrats!

I was at A Mano when the magazine came in. I quickly turned to your page and Shannita went bananas....in a good way.

Delica said...

These are great!

Saw those already--spotted the lobster immediately as a possible Regina G.! But to answer your question: I want to crochet a Crabius Minimus. Perhaps I've been watching too much "Deadliest Catch"? :-)

Red Rocket said...

Got it in the mail a couple of weeks ago! I'm thinking Lobster bag. Kudos on the designs!

Meg said...

Now, THAT is what I'm talking about!! Not your grandmother's crochet---the doll tissue cover, etc. Thank YOU!!

Emily said...

Ooh, those are great. My mother is working towards a collection of ornaments to allow an all-nautical-theme Christmas tree, so every winter I find myself trying to figure some salty items to craft for her. You've done me a great service... and so long before Christmas!

Sara said...

Oh that's just neat!

uppitygirl said...

Love these. Gotta get the magazine. Congratulations!

Dawna said...

Ooo! I love the lobster! That would go over so well out here in the Maritimes!!! :) Is it a tough pattern?

Caroline B said...

Loving that lobster - do we get that magazine here in the U.K.?

jaclynbailey said...

Oh! I love them! I even love the lobster!

Love the lobster. I just picked up a Crochet Today Magazine today. I saw the lobster, and immediately thought it looked like "Lady Linoleum's" work. Of course it doesn't say Lady Linoleum in the mag, so I had to log on here to see what your real name was. Great job and congrats. I can't wait to make my lobster! :)

Thank you,

Andy's Crafts said...

You are always an inspiration, your design is fabulous!

Jackie's huaband said...

I just cannot find a word for it..very impressed....well done!

Vicky aka stichr said...

So did you bring home the infected appendix [not spelled right? do you care?] in a jar so you can design a crocheted one??

Way cool lobster! I am doing a beachy embroidery thing, so I have crabby things on the brain...or at least thats my excuse.

Hey~~I got a visit from my friendly mail-delivery-woman-bearing-gifts including a squishie of yarn bits from the stash of the Monster Crochter herself...remember her? I think she is on vacation right now....

Sarah said...

I thought it might have been your design!

Dawn said...

Your patterns are quirky and unique! My little boy wants to go to Red Lobster so bad, but as that's a bit out of budget, I made him his own red lobster and sewed it to a blue and white striped sweater. While he still wants to eat a lobster, this seems to be keeping him happy for now. Thanks (and just so you know, I became a Crochet Today reader just for your things.)
