Finished Crochet - Cthulhu

Another monster from the Creepy Cute Crochet book is completed!  He was sitting about for a while, waiting for me to glue on some eyes (kindly provided by Tam's aunt again), but now he's back on the mantelpiece with his Grim Reaper pal.  This one's name is Cthulhu which, lovely reader Jennifer informed me, is a creation of H.P. Lovecraft, the horror author.  I feel like I need to go read some of his books now to get a better idea of what I'm dealing with here!  

This little guy was so easy to make, even if I did mess up the wings and make two the same instead of reversing the pattern, but meh.  Having went up a hook size from the body to do the Grim Reaper's head, I did the same here.  As you can see, I probably didn't need to, but he looks fine anyway.  It was constructed in the same way, except with three holes on the front of the head where the stitches were picked up afterwards to make the tentacle things.  Overall, I'd say he's really rather cute for a monster, even if I still can't work out how to say his name...
