Spaghetti Monster Tree Topper

Last night our home came under invasion.
This Spaghetti Monster flew into our kitchen, circled around a few times and then chose to land
on the top of our Christmas Tree.
There he stayed, waving his noodly appendages and
muttering in Spaghetti lingo about pirates and climate change.

He is not the first spaghetti monster to decide that the top of a Christmas Tree is a good place to put forth his message. But he may be the first of the knitted noodly brethren.


Construction Instructions:

FSM was made from a few miles (exaggeration) of 4-stitch knitted I-cord on size 8 dp needles and Lion Brand Wool-Ease cream yarn. The I-cord was tacked on a knitted stuffed sphere made of the same yarn. His meatballs are knitted stuffed spheres made with Lion Brand Suede yarn (it isn't easy to find meaty-colored yarn out there...). Two google eyes were attached to lightly wired eye-noodles and a few of the noodly appendages also were wired with jewelry wire so they could wave and wiggle effectively.

This must be what they mean by Christmas being under attack.

I don't know if you know this... but your instructions for this Noodly God representation are making their way around the internet. :-) Good work!

Oh, I found a knitting nancy to be handy for making the noodles.

What better way to be Touched By His Noodly Appendage on Christmas than with that amazing tree topper?

Nice work ;)

Would it be possible for some great Pastafarian to translate these unknowable knitting directions into the common language of crochet? I'm afraid I don't speak in tongues.

I finally got mine completed (the DAY that we put our tree up).

I was lazy, however, and just made pompoms out of brown yarn for the meatballs...

thank you SO much for sharing your instructions!
