Mortem's Tricks or Treats: Shun The Non-believer Edition

I am making good headway with my small but time consuming "to-do list" for February! Woo hoo!
It's really a Bat-fit kind of triumph, I'd say. It's an exhilarating feeling ticking off something on a to-do list. I feel like that simple act has begun a centralization that I so needed and have failed to find in the past; problems with over analyzing things.... anyways, enough of that!

The magical Liopluerodon has indeed shown me the way....

I find this situation so completely ironic, because I had made this for a friend (and also neighbor) who is a fossil preparator for the Petrified Forest National Park (where my hubby works, as well). I wanted to make something special for her, because our friendship clicked almost immediately. We have been going on hikes, going out to town together, and just chilling out.

I made this from super soft and cuddly "baby blanket" yarn, in super thick. The horn and hooves are made from a gradient yarn that shifts with colors of blue, purple, green and magenta. You can't see it very well, but within it there are threads of glitter yarn which only adds to the magical nature of the horn.

Consequently, she has introduced me to the magical world of unicorns, and has unveiled the possibilities. In production currently, is a lip balm I am creating inspired by her influence-- which in time I will unveil.
For now, I feel this bubblegum frenzy building within my core... it'll burst, I can feel it-- hopefully it doesn't stain my black clothes.


  1. haha you are so cute! good luck with your TO-DO LIST!

  2. That's too cute and awesome to be real :D I WANT ONE! ^^

    1. It's super comfy-- My friend enjoyed it thoroughly!

      I wish I knew how to write up knitting patterns; then perhaps I could share it.

  3. Not going to show this to my daughter - I KNOW she'd want one and I can't knit worth a darn! :D

    1. Heh! I loved it so much I actually toyed with idea of keeping it-- in the end I snapped out of it, and gave it to my friend. I'll probably end up making myself one sooner or later.

      Well, if you can't knit then perhaps a trade is in order? ;)
