I knit to keep my hands busy and myself out of trouble... Whoever would have suspected that I could knit up some trouble?
One night, several years ago, I created a pattern for knitting small pocket-sized Cthulhus. My nerdy friends dubbed them "Knithulhus" and seemed pretty taken with them. The original prototype lay around without any friends for a while afterward, but much like Francis Wayland Thurston in the original "Call of Cthulhu," I couldn't keep this little tentacle-face out of my mind forever. I mean, could you?
When Kickstarter launched their "Make 100" campaign, I started thinking that maybe it was time to let a little horde-let of monsters loose on the world. Surely there are 100 people out there who'd like a small, cuddly, knitted, hand-sized version of the most famous of the Great Old Ones. If you click today, one of them will surface in your home before you know it!
It'll drive you crazy with cute!
All of the reward tier levels include shipping to the USA. Unfortunately, due to the high shipping costs, I cannot ship these overseas at this time.
Risks and challenges
There are not too many risks with this project. I'm a pretty fast knitter, I have lots of yarn, and I've given myself plenty of lead time for the ones I haven't made yet. (The ones for the "I want one now!" tier are already finished and boxed, they just need addresses.)
I suppose there's some risk of stabbing myself in the hand with a knitting needle, which could put me out of commission for a while, but I'll try not to do that.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
