Pear and pear alike, or why I like Twinkies

I love food.

I know you have to eat to live, but I kind of live to eat. So, to get me through that long stretch between breakfast and midmorning snack, I can wear my food instead of just dreaming about it.

Enter: Twinkie Chan. She has published an awesome book that I am sad I didn’t publish first. It’s a whole book of awesome food-shaped scarves, hats, and tissue box covers that you can crochet yourself, and it’s called Twinkie Chan’s Crochet Goodies for Fashion Foodies: 20 Yummy Treats to Wear.

Now, you can buy some of Twinkie Chan’s awesome scarves ready-made for upwards of $60 (try Amazon.com for example), but Ms. Chan also generously offers some of her totally kitschy and awesome patterns right here in this book, which you can buy right from Amazon for under $10! So, for those of us hungry crafters with less disposable income, we can still rock some fabulous inedible treats, hand-fashioned by “ours” truly.

I know I’m fixin’ to make myself a cupcake hat next. ;)

And for those of you who really appreciate a finely honed sense of humor, check out Twinkie’s hilarious crochet-themed rap video below. I, for one, totally want to be one of her posse….

Enjoy all! And happy fooding/crafting!
