FRIENDS CAL WEEK #9: The One with the Banner

I wanted to recreate the iconic FRIENDS show title and felt the black background reflected the dark night in which this banner shows up during the opening credits of every episode. If you’re at all the yarny type, you may look at all the black and silently scream inside (black yarn=no fun to crochet with because it’s hard to see your stitches with such a dark colored yarn), but I promise, the black background in contrast with the white backgrounds of many of our panels so far makes it stand out so well. Just have a look yourself:

This is every panel released so far (week #1-9).

Typically, crochet-a-longs save their banner for the very last release, but I’m doing it differently because I saved the very best panel for last this time around.

Friends CAL WEEK #8: The One Where He’s Her Lobster

What would a FRIENDS tribute graphgan be without a lobster on it? For all you non-FRIENDS fluent followers, Phoebe has this theory that lobsters mate for life (she says they walk around holding lobster claws–check out the clip below for her explanation), and that Ross and Rachel are lobster. More specifically, that Ross is Rachel’s lobster. It’s a great scene and this little bit has become a part of pop culture and is referenced countless times in print and video all over the place.

FRIENDS CAL WEEK #7: The One with Smelly Cat

While Phoebe’s guitar represented all the important musical moments in FRIENDS, I felt that one song in particular deserved its very own panel–Smelly Cat. Smelly Cat popped up over and over throughout the series and is just so darn catchy that my 4 year olds who have never seen the show, heard the song while I was writing this, and can sing it word-for-word. From Phoebe singing Smelly Cat in Central Perk, to teaching another musician, to starring in a music video and cat litter box commercial, Smelly Cat will always be a staple of memorable FRIENDS moments.

FRIENDS CAL WEEK #6: The One with the Peephole Frame

Confession: I have ALWAYS wanted to paint my front door purple and hang up a replica peephole frame just the door in Monica’s apartment.I even have a peephole frame saved somewhere on my Amazon wishlist. This week’s panel is probably my favorite panel in this whole crochet-a-long. I just love how it turned out. There is quite a bit of detailing on this week’s panel, but I totally think it’s worth it.

P.S. One of my favorite peephole frame moments comes when Joey gets his head stuck in the door. You get to see a ton of the frame in this scene as well as Joey’s head being basted with turkey fat. hehe
