Happy Thanksgiving!

A bit late, but my sentiment's there!

Having mentioned that, I thought I would also mention something else non-crochet related.
(Except in the case of my previous project, the crocheted Murloc Murky.)
The Murlocs, they are dying. If you've ever played World of Warcraft, if you've ever quested around Azeroth, seen them murdered... well, then you know these noble creatures are in danger.

Won't you please help?

... This inspires me to work on my Murky some more, and refine that pattern. Ah, to add to the list!

I'm still sick x_x I think, oddly enough, this is related to dentist work I had done less than a week before all this started...
I KNEW they were no good!
More later, as I'm working on a new friend<3

Oh, and there's a long needed update on my Awesome-peeps list!

Once a week! Once a week.

I'm sick :( It's not so fun. It's amazing, really, they don't even know what I have, so for the time being I'm to stay home. Going back to the doctor Monday though. At least I get some time off and can crochet a little!
I have been keeping busy, haha. For Halloween, we all went as pirates! We stormed the bowling alley and Village Inn, h'yarr. For the fiancee, I made a lush velveteen pirate coat; it's very nice, I think. Not quite done though since I didn't have time aforehand to do the buttons, but I'm GONNA finish it, and I'll post pics when I do.
For my friend who was just deployed, I made these:

He likes werewolves so I thought they'd make a good choice haha. Also they were related to a gaming session I've been running, so that's part of it.
He liked them :3 I got them from the book Hello, Cupcake! which is downright fantastic. I DEFINITELY suggest you take a look at it, even if you don't think you can cook cupcakes (which I certainly can't very well)!
The designs are just too awesome, and I can't wait to make more! There's also really helpful tips in there.
My sister already wants me to make her penguin cupcakes for her birthday, haha.

On the crochet front, I'm working on a few different things. I made myself a pair of oversized mittens so that I can line them with fleece, nice and warm! Also working on a massive blanket with my friend Angela, and some things for a baby on the way in her family.

And, we got our first snow today! It took forever, I'll tell you what. We actually didn't have snow Halloween night, which is a first as far as my memory goes.
But now it's here!
When I'm not coughing up a lung, I'm gonna go outside to play in it with the dog<3
Though that probably won't be for a long while yet...
