warcraft fans/addicts: boomie, the moonkin pattern

i’ve been playing world of warcraft since march-2005 and… ok, FINE, i’m not just a fan, i’m an addict. many moons ago, on my first trip into the hinterlands, i discovered “owlbeasts” and instantly HAD TO HAVE ONE. part bear, part owl/bird, part feral cat – they’re adorable in their ferocity! big beast rawrs at me and i’m all, “aww, lookit it, isn’t he cute?” (and then i club him with my mace, because that’s, like, what you do!) when i finally had the chance, i created my own druid who could take on the same form, known as “moonkin“.

looking for something to crochet, i decided to see if i could make my own version of the moonkin and ~voila~, boomie was borned:

Boomie, the Warcraft Moonkin

and now i’m selling Boomie, The Warcraft Moonkin Crochet Pattern at etsy!

he stands about 7 inches tall and he’s soft, squishy, and cuddly!

if you cannot crochet and would be interested in ~the finished product~, drop me a line!

coming/going/spinning around in circles – it’s been that kind of month.

it’s been a really crazy couple of weeks, so i’ve not been posting, because i’ve not been sure if i’m coming or going. i’m trying really hard to stay upbeat, but it’s not been easy…

on the way to san antonio to sit with my aunt for her open heart surgery, i stopped by mom’s place to pick her up. found mom in bed, completely unresponsive. called 911. she spent a week in the hospital. my aunt’s heart surgery was postponed 3 days. mom had a heart cath and found out she has a faulty bicuspid valve, which needs surgery. aunt not doing so well (she’s 82, diabetic, and had a triple bypass – i wouldn’t be doing so well either). AND i have an interview today with UT (*fingers crossed*).

so yeah, it’s been *crazy* stressful, but mom’s doing okay. we go to the heart surgeon tomorrow to find out 1) what type of procedure and 2) when we’ll need to have this done. (“we”. mom says she’d be happy to just let me have it and stay uninvolved!)

of course, since i was spending all this time sitting around a hospital room, i did the only thing any sane person could do: i dragged my crochet with me!

i’ve several pieces that i need to finish up, but these were my latest completed items:
