As I promised myself that I wouldn't make anything too boring, I thought this would be a great first project to have a go at. I got the pattern from here for $4 and was well worth it. As a beginner I found the instructions easy to follow and apart from having to find a tutorial on how to make a magic ring, it was all pretty straightforward.

There's my finished suicidal teddybear :D It wasn't that hard to make the hangman's noose either, I just had to look up a tutorial on youtube. Not quite sure where to put this, maybe on the coffee table to creep out visitors :D
Random crochet tip: I was reading a post on Gleeful Things and saw a glittery cushion on the end of her crochet hook. I asked what it was, and turns out its a rubber pencil gripper to make holding the hook more comfortable. Got to try that! :D
