Say Cheese!

Peter asked me back in early December if I would crochet him a set of cheeses for his cheese fiend friends, Nate & Mari for a Christmas present. He didn’t mind that he would get them way after Christmas and I gave it to him early February! These patterns are from Eternal Sunshine’s Etsy shop, a talented crocheter and fellow Brooklynite! While these guys don’t look as nice and polished as ES’s, I’m pretty happy with them. They’ve got character! I laughed out loud after putting on the gouda’s red rind. I called it a pompadour while Pete was calling it an afro. The jarlsberg was actually a knit pattern with a crochet rind but since I can’t knit (yet), I followed the gouda pattern and then glued felt dots on it for the holes. I think I did a good improvisation even tho the rind is on crooked. It just looks like he had a wild night. 😉

You can’t really see the eyes from this photo but it’s there!

Here’s a picture that Mari sent me of the cheeses on their sofa. They love them!

    I LOVE THIS!!!! I now know what I’m going to do next time I come across my yellow and orange thread!!! My oldest daughter LOVES cheese and this is so awesome. I’m thinking of a little mini-cheese that she can attach to her backpack.

    So cute!
