Is a Squeasel  

What do you buy, beg, steal or make for the man who has everything?
A crocheted weasel. Naturally.

Not just a weasel but a 'squeasel', which (according to my dad and I) started as a 'squeaky weasel', but in this context also means squeazy weasel, for it is a thing of squishiness. And it has slightly lopsided ears and tiny crocheted claws and everything.

Squeasel in the studio


I didn't follow a pattern, I just looked at a picture of a weasel and tried to make the 'inny and outty' bits in the right places.

For my next project: the entire story of Lord of the RIngs, and the Silmarillion, and the Hobbit, told in Squeasels. *shoots self in face*

I love the little toes! The colours are just right. Now, I will always see a Squeasel when I think of you. :)

Ahh you got me. It's a self portrait. (I don't take showers I just need a quick spin in the washing machine).

Oh wow! I think you should call it the Squeezeal myself! :D It's utterly adorable, and very weazelly. I love it's little claws and it looks really perfect! Kudos. And we discover yet another talent of yours! :)

Thank you so much! :) Woolly things with widdle claws, what's not to love? Heh. If I had time I would make a mer-squeasel in your honour. ;)

Hullo! :)

It's too cute for words! <3<3<3 I'd love to be able to just pull off a patternless anything like that!
And I double--- Nay! Triple dare you to do those stories in squeasels! It must be done!

Lawks, thank you. I bow before the Mistress of doll cuteness! Your work takes real skill because you know how to do it properly and by gum you do it so well! You could open your own museum, like a Madam Tussauds, but much teenier and cuter and felt-ier. I'd visit!

(And by the way, if your little dolls did Lord of the Rings I think I'd swoon from the cutes. *Swoon*, I say.)

I have a commissioned doll to finish and a self-imposed challenge to do before, but, after that... I'm up for it if you are too. ;)

The man in question was my dad and he loved it. :) Well, until my gran saw it and stole it, ha.

I love it! Now I must wipe the tears of laughter from my eyes! You are a true talent, m'Lady Weasel. I bow before your wondrousness!
(You've reminded me of a local celtic music group I once heard play: Skweeze the Weezle. I'll never be able to think of them again without visions of your squeasel dancing in my head!)

Pixielings! :3
Of course I had to go check out the band, or at least what they look like. And it is an interesting look... heh. Good name though!
*dancing squeasels in a row...*
allyrapixieallyrapixie on 11th November 2009 07:52 (UTC)
Yeah, they aren't exactly a fashionable bunch (though they used to have a lady fiddler who raised the level a bit), but I've always like the name. And now that I have a weasel for a friend, it's even better! ;)
*Did the fight start because they were dancing, or was it because everyone else was fighting for the chance to dance with such cuteness?*
