At the office where husband works, someone started a Halloween treat swap thingy. Basically, you get a note that says, "You have been Booed" along with a treat. Then you post the sign on your door and pay it forward to two people. When husband was booed, he requested that I crochet some treats for his pay it forward (I think everyone else gave candy). So I crocheted these creepy little eyeballs...
The pattern is loosely based on http://www.scificrafts.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/Crochet-Eyeball-Pattern.pdf although after row 7, I tied on all the red yarn and let it hang from the outside while I finished the eyeball part. Then I threaded the yarn onto a tapestry needle and chain-stitched the bloody nerves to the back of the eyeball. As with most of my creations lately, these were gone before I even had a chance to really look at them, so I think I will make some more for myself.
