|He's dark and fearsome. No, really!|
Since I can't share pictures of that yet, how about some pictures from an old amigurumi project? My fiance loves the creepy tales of H.P. Lovecraft, so when I saw the crocheted Cthulu project in Creepy Cute Crochet, I knew I had to make it for him. (I believe it was his Christmas gift in '09.)
I'm really happy with the way it turned out (and the fiance loves it), although those tentacles took several tries to perfect. Luckily, the author provided a couple of really helpful tutorials on her blog, a fact which neatly sums up Why The Internet is Awesome.
Technical details (as far as I remember them): Lion Brand's Cotton-Ease yarn (worsted weight) in lime for all the stitching, with either an E or F hook.
