…because I’ve just found three rather big viruses!
These are, yet again, for SDA’s Japan Relief Done Quick! We’ll be raising money for Doctors Without Borders, who are currently doing humanitarian work in Japan to aid the tsunami and earthquake victims. If you donate $5 or more during the speedrun of Dr. Mario, you’ll have a chance to win one of these three viruses! Please help us raise money for a wonderful charity, and have fun watching us speedrun games!

There only seems to be one… but I just know he’ll start calling for help.
Yes, it’s a Fobby, from the game Earthbound! (Ravelry project page here.) As you might have guessed, this little guy will also be given away to a random donor who gives $5 or more to Doctors Without Borders during the speedrun of Earthbound at JRDQ. I’m on a bit of a roll today, finishing two plushies and already considering a third… I should probably get some rest instead, though. More plushies are calling to me, but I’ll work on them tomorrow!
The plushies for Japan Relief Done Quick are starting to accumulate! Joining Mr. Saturn is a very different friend: Meat Boy!
(Ravelry project page here.) I’m very happy with how he came out! He is 5″ tall and squishy (though not full of meat, just polyester fiberfil). You could win him if you donate $5 or more to Doctors Without Borders during Japan Relief Done Quick!
I’ve finished my first prize to give away during SDA’s Japan Relief Done Quick: a Mr. Saturn plushie, to be given away during the speedrun of Earthbound!
(Ravelry project page, with more photos and information, is here.)
A random donor who gives $5 or more to Doctors Without Borders will be the recipient of this little guy. 🙂 Don’t forget to watch Japan Relief Done Quick April 7 – 10 on Speed Demos Archive!
I finished making another katamari hat!
This one is nearly identical to the hat I made for Speed Demos Archive‘s Awesome Games Done Quick. The only difference is that this one has eight bumps instead of seven, which (in my opinion) fills the hat out better. Also, this hat took exactly one skein of Vanna’s Choice Baby yarn, in the colorway Sweet Pea. I think it’s the perfect shade for the green katamari ball! The Ravelry project page for this hat is here.
(Vanna White is “America’s favorite crocheter”, did you know that?)
My next project follows the katamari vein–I am going to make the Prince of All Cosmos! But while I am making more progress in my customer queue, I will also be making a few small prizes for SDA’s emergency charity event, Japan Relief Done Quick. Yes, that means you can win some of my plushies for donating at least $5 to charity! I will post more details here about the marathon when things are more firmed up. It will take place April 7 – 10, so save the dates, watch some great speedruns, and help us raise money for Doctors Without Borders as they aid the Japanese people in the aftermath of the earthquakes and tsunami.
