I’m back from the food coma and here we are at the close of the giveaway. The bag of yarn with a tote of handmade deer love goes to Sherry who commented about her favorite Obey doodle:
“Fondle You. I can imagine roaming thru yarn with my fingers. Ooooh, aaaah!”
Woah. Thanks for keeping it G, kinda.
Sherry please email me hooker @ obeycrochet.com and a million thanks to Hola Dear Deer! Gracias homies!
P.S. If you happen to be in Houston Dec 11th, meet the deer squared at the Bizzare Market on Main and yes, I will be crafting it up there, too. What?! I’m generous with the rub on tattoos!

I may not be a “people person”, but here is a tip-ola: if you are going to attempt to associate with other persons, it’s a mega bonus if they happen to be some crafty bastards.
Exhibit A: Hola Dear Deer
This doe duo are a pair of sister stitchers who chant “straight lines are for squares” while toiling away at their sewing machines to conjure up business card holders, pouches, totes, and what ever else the fabric (vintage!) so desires. They’ve helped in crafting Obey Crochet yarnbombing kits, proudly sported rub on tattoos (hello hook universe, they are still available!) for the Obey cause, and I am glad to call them homies. AND one of them hooks in her spare time! Quite the pair, quite the pair, indeed.
These dear deers have started out in a crafty Etsyian adventure and have so generously given me a handmade goodie to help a hooker out. You can also follow some deer family escapades here. Did you say FREE?! Yes. Why, yes, I did.
Word on the street is stripes are sexy.
It’s a large, lined canvas tote made with vintage fabric and sturdy enough to stuff with all your hooks and a ton o’ yarn.
FYI, I love me some hookers, but I could have soooo easily kept this. E-A-S-I-L-Y. Instead, because I am super wicked ninja cool (and because I don’t want a hoof to the head from those deer), I went out, bought a butt load o’ yarn, and am giving it to you.
Why would I do this?! Wait, why am I doing this? Oh, yeah, to support the hooker cause, my crafty crusaders. The holidays have folks spending money on things that are un-crochet and in the midst of the madness I am pushing back, bulking your stash up and asking you to get on that amigurumi, granny square, potholder, monster, blanket project you have been putting off. Get hookin’!
HOW DO I WIN AND SPREAD THE LOVE OF HOOK FAR AND WIDE?
Leave a comment and tell me what’s your favorite Obey Crochet Comic so far. You can browse the selection here and here. A winner will be chosen Monday, the 28th, in the morn (I live in Texas!) after the turket slaughtering.
P.S. This blog remains sponsor free, powered by a single hook, a cubicle job, and the crazed love o’ crochet.
P.P.S. If you are disappointed I am not giving away deer, well I guess I can understand that but I heard they poop a lot.
Gracias Hola Dear Deer! Crochet all day, every day.

What the heck is that semi organized two inch binder doing on your desk?!
It contains all of the Obey Crochet drawings, you say?!
And while cleaning and organizing because you live such a wild life style, you found two test prints?! that you don’t want? and want to give away for some awesome hard core hooker out there?
My joy, can not be contained. Not. At. All.
But how, oh how, oh hooky one, do I win this awesome display of hooker pride?! Edward Hook Hands! He’s dreamy.
Leave a comment, tell me your favorite, most awesome breakfast. Why? Because I like breakfast. And because I own this blog and I do what I want. And I want to see if you actually read my mutterings. Mutter.
I will pick two winners Monday morn when I get up. I live in Texas. Good luck. Hooks speed.

What is this crazy person trying to ninja off with?! An Obey Crochet Yarnbombing Kit! Say. What. You can breathe now. Okay, I am not hooking your yarny creations for you, period. Think of this kit more as your monkey assistant in your crafty vandalism. Yes, monkey. Craft monkey. Crochet craft monkey at large. Zip ties, stat! Crochet mask to conceal identity, stat! Rub on tat and button in case I get caught and at least the jail photo will be a bit more bad arse. (Please send me any of those photos please. Please!)
What is this for and where can I get it? First of all: it’s free. You know I like that word. Mega like. Austin Craft Riot (formerly Etsy Austin) is having a Holiday Show of handmade crafty goodness November 12th & 13th and over the two day craftacular event the first few folks to get through the doors with receive free good bags. My two favorite does, Hola Dear Deer have chipped in some free goodies as well and Farmecologie is in as well. I got my hook to the ground people, but you’ll have to go to see what’s up! Word on the street there are 50 bags! You may have to beat me there because I tackle for free awesomeness. I tackle hard. Channel some early bird vibes and get some goods!
To recap: Austin Craft Riot – Austin, TX – Nov 12th & 13th- Crafty Goodies – Free – GET SOME!
I have been working hard. Drawing will commence as usual soon.
P.S. Halloween awesomeness will also be shared!

It’s like that thing common people refer to as Christmas, but one bajillion times better squared. It’s Interional Crochet Day! What?! What?! We could hardly sleep because to us this is the total highlight of our very dull, but we keep telling ourselves “it is awesome” lives. Woah, too much venting there. The fellas at the Obey Crochet Manor got up extra early to tell you fine crafty crochet peeps…
Yes. Your requests and emails have not gone ignored. Thanks for flooding my inbox. No for real though, I met so many kick arse hookers and hope to meet more. Just use the handy button in the side bar now to access the new shop for all your hooker needs. There will be adds to the shop throughout the weeks, but we HAD TO open on International Crochet Day. Aren’t we romantical?
Are there no more free buttons?! If you were lucky enough to get some, you are one craft crocheting bastard. But wait…
No there are not free buttons, but you can get buttons at the shop. I like using my laundry money to buy stamps and send you stuff so we have a new free item: TEMPORARY TATTOOS. Say what?! I know. Just message me your address using the contact link and I will send you one per hooker. Be patient, it will get sent, I am a one hook show here and I keep making crochet monsters to help me, but they just end up eating my food and having parties. No slaves yet. Damn.
Pinky McPinkeye says…
Do not think that for one micro second that this hooker has put down the pencil. Still doodlin’ to spread the gospel of hook to all those willing craft far and wide. Danke to the interwebs for that one.
Do you like my flags? Of course you do. You do. fabric&lines handmade them. Her shop is coming soon. She is one crafty chicklet.

It hit 10 pm and here we are and yes I take every possible opportunity to show off my screen saver. Deal. Be jealous.
The Random Number Generator says: 3
3 means Megan, @love_evol on Twitter. Email me Megan so I can mail you your wikkid, cool, chuffed, brutal, stupendous, baller, fantastic, frackful, epic, hip hop happenin’ print. Send me a picola when you get it up! And danke to all the crafty fools on Facebook for expanding my vocab. Word.
If you got beef, feel jipped, or complete outrage, make sure to not email me and take it up with the Random.org folks. If you still feel hurt, stick around. National Crochet Day (Sept 12th) is just around the corner and I gots plans. Oh, yes, plans. Plans of great and utter proportion that I am know hyping up to possibly result in some form of disappointment, therefore, I shut up.
Congrats Megan! Stay hooker!
