You know what? The crochet craze is getting weird now.
Mr. Pointy stuffed vampire stake:
Says the seller: "He is about 1 1/2 inches from head to rump." It isn't every day someone says that about your necklace. I hope.
Tiny Possum felted necklace:
Unless you live in Portland, Scandinavia, or the middle of the Salish Sea (the seller has a helpful 300-word explanation for nonresidents), I would advise against wearing these T-shirts. I say this with love. Just don't.

For all you typography geeks out there, the perfect pair of social-life endangering rings.

Friends, this is a bit of a Moment for me. Not since I stumbled upon the Squid Tampon Cozy have I felt as proud to be curating this collection of unusual crafts.

Mustache pint glasses:
The good news: I love this felted hydrangea in acidic-soil blue.
