I have made two keychains with spiders and let me tell you – it was not easy!
As I mentioned before in this post, I have arachnophobia but try to be brave and get just a little bit more used to spiders. It is really difficult as there is just something uncanny about the way they move… those fast moves up and down, wiggling eight legs… this terrifies me completely.
With crochet spiders it is a little bit easier. Also, I am happy with both designs, one more friendly and second one more hairy and creepy. There is nothing wrong with being proud of your work, and I am not only proud of nice keychain that I created but also for this small attempt at fighting my own fear.
Still, holding those little guys in my hand is weird for me. So if you are one of those crazy people who love spiders and want to buy this cutie or his hairy brother, please do, I will be more than happy to get rid of them from my house. ;D
I was thinking about making a few more octopuses – they also have eight legs but are much cuter in my eyes. What animals do you like and want to see a crochet version of? They can have fewer legs. ;)
