Hello... Cthulhu?

Cthulhu is a monstrous entity who lies "dead but dreaming" in the city of R’lyeh, a place of non-Euclidean madness presently (and mercifully) sunken below the depths of the Pacific Ocean. Cthulhu appears in various monstrous and demonic forms in early myths of the human race. Racial memory preserves Him as humanity’s most basic nightmare. Cthulhu is the high priest of the Great Old Ones, unnatural alien beings who ruled the Earth before humanity formed, worshipped as gods by some misguided people. It is said that They will return, causing worldwide insanity and mindless violence before finally displacing humanity forever.

Do you dare awaken Cthulhu... and cross him with Hello Kitty? Oh yes. I dare.

Pattern: Taken entirely from a cross stitch pattern at Other Wonders
Black & White Yarn: Plymouth Encore
Red & Green Yarn: Lionbrand Wool-Ease
Sparkly Red: Trendsetter Sunshine
Yellow: Some random fuzzy yarn a friend gave me

Measures 21" x 17" on size 6 needles using worsted weight. Try DK for something more manageable. (for example, it'd make a great front of a bag!)

This is the front panel of a pillow. I'm 8 rows away from finishing the back panel (in matching red wool-ease). A blessing upon Joanns, which sells quarter flats of fabric for $.99. (A quarter flat is a 22" x 18" panel) The fiberfill was only $2. Woo hoo! So now I just need to spend some time with my sewing machine and seaming, and I'll have me a great throw pillow.

Which I'm going to give to my friend Laura. Oh no!!!

Also, I want my intarsia gold ribbon now!
