And the lamp is just fantastic.

Kalanit received the "Alice in Wonderland" themed ATC I made her, but she's super busy and having scanner troubles, so I'm posting a pic of it for her.

It's an India ink drawing, I called it "All Mad Here".

I'm so very pleased with what I've crafted so far. Although -- confounded machine!! I will make it work. *kick kick*

Also, I'm totally into dinosaurs right now. I'm noticing them everywhere. I put out my dinosaur figurines and orthoceras, trilobite, and ammonite fossils to look at for inspiration. (Oh, and I wore my coprolite necklace today -- fossilized ancient turtle poo. Hehe.)

I received my rainbow/colorful ATC from The Platypus Project! It's entitled "Colorswatch" and it is sewn!

It's so fantastic. The red is sparkly, and all the fabrics are so lovely. I just love the feel of it. Eee!

Yay, I'm glad it got to you all right. (One of mine was returned to sendered, and I had to send it out again.) All these ATCs are soooo beautiful. Everyone is doing such a fantastic job.
29  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Cookie Monster Scarf -- first time crocheting! on: June 21, 2009 12:18:32 PM
I could really go for some cookies right now.

So do you think its easier to learn knitting than crochet? When I see the 2 needles and all the loops, i looks so much harder, but I've been doing simple crochet since I was little, and have a hard time following any patterns, and I want to make cuter stuff.

I don't know if one is easier than the other, I think it might have to do with whatever one learns first. My mom crocheted and disliked knitting (though she taught me how). She was super fast. She crocheted a wedding dress once. Heh. I just had a really hard time getting it from instructions in a book. I wish she was still here to teach me, I'm sure it would be easier to learn that way. Also, I kept splitting the yarn with the hook, that took getting used to. Smiley

Thank you everyone!

It is very very simple, because that's all I know how to do.

The body of the scarf is knitted in garter stitch, because I'm fast at that (even if the only thing I know how to do is knit rectangles!).

The cookies and eyes were solid circles using single crochet.

Then I stitched chocolate chips on the cookies with a dark brown yarn, then sewed the circles to the scarf.

I bought "Happy Hooker" at the beginning of the swap -- I learned to knit (well, as much as I've learned) from "Stitch and Bitch", and it was so clear I was sure I could pick up crochet from "Happy Hooker". Not so. *lol* I tried and tried to figure out the instructions for crocheting circles and it just wasn't happening, so a couple weeks later I went back to the bookstore and got a kids learn to crochet book. I was able to figure it out from that. Ha ha! Now I think "Happy Hooker" will make more sense, which is good because I got a couple patterns to try to figure out. :>
