Even though I'm not 100% better (maybe 60%?) I can't let a Nerd Swap pass me by!  I sent in my Q, and promise to Lysol the heck out of anything I send (though I can't be contagious by now, and my husband hasn't caught anything, so crafts should be safe!).

I shouldn't have done it, but I did.  I'm not well *yet*, but I'm definitely on the mend and have done some crafting, so I figure with the long crafting time and the fact that I can buy things for some of the days if I have to... why the heck not?

But now I have to wait something like 24 hours to get my partner...  *whine*  Wink

Just checking in... it escalated to pneumonia, more meds, Anana still being a fantastically patient nurse but undoubtedly bored to tears...  :/

Yay, Poe being supportive during your blood donation!  I'm big on donating, Anana got to go with me once this year, hopefully there will be another time... stupid lungs... *sulks*

Project Name: Don't Bleed! Weeping Angel Blood Drop
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=439810.0
Brief Description: In the continuation of the custom blood drop characters theme, I present the Weeping Angel Blood Drop (cue the adage about getting blood from a stone...).  What's more creepy than the weeping angels?

In the continuation of the custom blood drop characters theme, I present the Weeping Angel Blood Drop (cue the adage about getting blood from a stone...):



Start out with a normal Bob the Blood Drop:

Size F Hook
Worsted Weight Yarn

Round 1: SC 4 in magic Ring (or, ch 2 and sc 4 in second ch from hook).  Join {sl st to first SC, ch1}
Round 2: SC in each st, join (4)
Round 3: *SC in first st, 2 SC in next st* repeat from *, join (6)
Round 4: *SC in first st, 2 SC in next st* repeat from *, join (9)
Round 5: *SC in first st, 2 SC in next st* repeat from * to last st, sc in last st, join  (13)
Round 6: SC in each st, join (13)
Round 7: *SC in first two st, 2 SC in next st* repeat from * to last st, sc in last st, join (17)
Round 8: SC in each st, join (17)
Round 9: *SC in first two st, 2 SC in next st* repeat from * to last 2 st, sc in last 2 st, join (22)
Round 10: SC in each st, join (22)
Round 11: *SC in first st, 2 SC in next st* repeat from *, join (33)
Rounds 12-20: SC in each st, join (33)
Rounds 21-23: *SC in first st, SC 2tog* repeat from *, join
(stuff-as-you-go decreases)
Round 24: SC 2tog
(Cram as much stuffing as you can in as youre closing him up, remember, hes there to be squeezed so he needs to be fairly firm.)
Fasten off.

Then you make two arms...



Round 1: SC 4 in magic Ring (or, ch 2 and sc 4 in second ch from hook).  Do not join, work in a continuous spiral.
Round 2-3: Sc around (4)
Round 4: Ch2, sl st in 2nd ch, sc around (4)
Round 5-8: Sc around (4)

Then you make two wings...



Row 1: Ch 6
Row 2: Ch1, turn, sc in the next 4 st, then 3 sc in last stitch
Row 3: Ch1, turn, sc in the first sc, 2sc in the next sc, sc in the next 5 sc, ch 3
Row 4: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in the next 7 st, 2sc in next st, sc in last st
Row 5: Sc in first sc, 2sc in next sc, sc in next 9 st, ch 3
Row 6: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in the next 11 st, 2sc in next st, sc in last st, then sc 3 st down the "turn" edge to get back to the starting tail.

Sew the wings to the back of the drop along the back starting chain.  Sew arms on front.

Ahhahahaha, that hippocampus!  I'm glad it's getting love, because it was a bit of a struggle for me.  But what's life without challenging yourself, eh?

Not great news on the signing up front *yet*, just went back to the doctor and they think it's pneumonia, but I have new meds and it should be better in 2-3 days, still plenty of time to sign up.  I may have already filled out the Q in anticipation of feeling better... nothing like positive thinking!  Cheesy

I will sign up if I get better before the sign-up deadline, I went back to the doctor today and we're trying something new, so fingers crossed by Monday I'll be sending in my Q!

Okay, I think we're just waiting on one package to make a long, arduous trans-Atlantic journey!

Sorry I've been such an absent organizer, I went back to the doctor today and am on (hopefully) better medication, but still (three weeks!) sick.  So even though I haven't commented on everything, I do think the packages have been lovely and you've all been wonderful swappers!

Y'all are so sweet!  I am going to try to do a little crafting this weekend, and if I can (still have an annoying, nagging cough and can't sleep well) I will fill out my Q!  I have so many ideas for things I want to do... Oddly, not much of an idea of what I would want... I think this would be a "let your imagination go wild and surprise me" kind of swap. Smiley

I have tons of patterns for spooky/Halloween amigurumi that I've been dying to try out!  And I got another shipment of blank peg people.... Cheesy
