    I laughed out loud when I saw this fun coffee-cup cozy, which I think lives up to its title nicely. He really does look grumpy! I think he'd made a fun gift, and he's both non-gender-specific and guy-friendly.

    You know those iconic cheese-flavored crackers that are shaped like fish? Here's a fun pattern you can use to crochet a fibery version of them. Twinkie Chan suggests using the finished piece to make a pin, and she also gives some other interesting suggestions if a pin isn't quite what you had in mind for the end use of your (faux) crackers.

    Twinkie Chan has posted this pattern for free on her own blog.

    This project is so silly that you may just laugh out loud when you see it. If you'd like to transform a dog into a teddy bear using a crocheted ear warmer as your prop, then this is definitely the pattern for you.

    No matter what your "foodie status" is, you're likely to find something appealing in this book. If you're a vegetarian or vegan, check out the salad scarf, the carrot scarf, the radish scarf, the pear scarf, and the grapefruit scarf. If you're a sweet-tooth, many of the designs in this book will be good choices, including the cupcake scarf, the cookie scarf, the rocket popsicle scarf and the gingerbread man scarf. If you're a meat-lover, perhaps you'd enjoy the...MORE spaghetti and meatballs scarf, or the pepperoni pizza scarf. These scarves all look like a lot of fun to make, and they'd be real conversation-starters when you wear them around.
