Inspiration: Vampires, Werewolves and Fairies

I know I’m about a decade late to the party, but have you guys seen True Blood?  I finally got around to starting it, that’s about all I’ve been doing for the last few weeks.  It’s a crazy addictive show.  I mean, come on, it’s sexy and violent vampires and sexy and violent werewolves doing sexy and violent things.  Also there’s shape-shifters (which, it seems are different from werewolves).  And fairies.  And two-faced politicians.  And ghosts.  And crazy religious cults.  And who the heck knows what’s next!  (Don’t tell me, I’ve still got two seasons to go).

true-blood-2[1]I’m not saying it’s great film making, but it’s a very exciting TV show, and it’s fantastic to watch for an hour or two (or three or four) while working on a sweater.  Although, in case you couldn’t tell, don’t watch it with kids, or anyone who is sensitive about sexy and violent vampires doing sexy and/or violent vampire things.

But in honor of all things supernatural on Halloween, and in honor of my new favorite TV-show-of-the-moment, let’s knit some True Blood-inspired projects.

This vampire is neither sexy, nor violent.  But he’s pretty darn cute.

This werewolf doll literally changes from a human to a wolf.  How cool is that?

Happy Halloween!  And try to avoid getting bitten by any vampires tonight!
