Hi everybody! It's been a LONG time since I've posted anything. My friend Ronald asked me to create a Jack Skellington doll for his girlfriend's birthday. After working long and hard, here he is!
I put a penny in there to show that his eye sockets are actually sunken in. This was the most important aspect of the project for me, and I had never tried to do anything like it before. I think it's my favorite part of the whole doll.
The best full-length shot I could get. I apologize for my foot and the bed, my computer is being fiddly.
I designed him to be one-of-a-kind, and I didn't write the pattern down. I want her to have a doll that no one else has. He was a hand assassin with all of the tiny seams, but he was totally worth it. So, what do you guys think?? Questions and comments welcome!!!
Hi everyone! It's been a long time since I've posted any work. Sorry in advance about the length.^_^
I hope you enjoy!
This is a scarf that I made from my own pattern some time ago during a really cold winter. (For some reason, this picture is horrible.) I made one in the same colors, only with stripes, for my bf. It was done in Red Heart.
This is a hat that I made for my boyfriend's mom, who is about to go through chemotherapy. I got the pattern from the HeadHuggers website. This was my first time doing an entire piece in loop stitch (which is funny considering how long I've been crocheting.) This was also done in red heart.
This is another picture of the hat, with me looking young and pensive.
This is a nautilus that I made a couple of days ago, again for my bf (can you say pampered?) We have a running joke involving the nautilus. I used Snork's pattern, and we agree that it is VERY hard on the fingers! However, I'm really happy with it, especially the dimensions of the shell.
A shawl that I began at 3am yesterday morning. I've worked on it for about ten or eleven hours. Sadly, I completely busted my stash of this lovely Caron Simply Soft in Dark Sage, and so I'm going to have to wait quite some time before I can get more to finish it. I plan on this shawl being gigantic, with the back point at ankle length, when I finish it. I'm about 5'9", so it's going to be big.
I don't have any pictures of the ones that my grandmother made at the moment . Unfortunately, they are waiting in my parents' garage to be restored. I DO have a picture, however, of another afghan that a friend of my grandmother's made. It is EXTREMELY similar, but it's not identical. The Spanish Lace pattern is lacier than this, which is more of just a chevron.
Here is the afghan:
This is a picture of what's left of the pattern. I know it looks salvagable, but that's the first page of about five pages, and the rest are completely stuck together. Pulling them apart makes the words come off. Also, large parts are completely missing because the paper fell apart.
What I DO know is that this was sold in a kit. It says that at the top of the pattern. Does that help?
