Sometimes you just have to drop everything and answer the door.
While browsing for Christmas ideas last night, I stumbled upon the crocheted eyeballs (best not to ponder that association too much, there's no accounting for post-midnight pattern browsing).
My kids are just getting into Harry Potter mania and my daughter fell in love with the character of Alastor "Mad Eye" Moody after watching Goblet of Fire.
So on an otherwise lazy Sunday morning, instead of schoolwork or dishes, the muse instructed me to crochet a Mad Eye Moody eye patch. And I listened.
