11  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / What do lemmings do when they're waiting for their turn? on: April 09, 2011 07:53:32 AM
They knit!
(I debated putting this on the knitting board, but since Lemmy himself is crocheted, I put him here. Cheesy)



I used a pattern from a fellow Craftster -PlanetJune (thanks June!)- and made this little guy.


I added the scarf, yarn & needles.  Smiley

He is knitting his scarf on a pair of toothpick-size knitting needles with sock weight yarn.


If he can't finish his scarf soon he may never jump!


Thanks for looking!  Cheesy
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Fanny the Roller Derby Flamingo! on: April 09, 2011 07:44:13 AM
My partner received in the Yarnie Scavenger Hunt Swap so I can post pics of this lovely lady:



I used a free pattern (found on ravelry) to knit up the flamingo - she has a raquetball in her body so she's round AND bouncy!

... I came up the knee and wing pads, helmet and skates on my own because my swap partner loves roller derby.

Here's her funny face.  Smiley


She was super fun to make and easy to personalize.
What do you think?

14  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / My little little brother on: March 16, 2011 11:45:17 AM

Who is that dashing little guy?
--Why it's none other than my little brother!
Why is he wearing a ghost shirt?
--My brother has worn that shirt almost every day since he was 5. It's his favorite.

I decided to make him an amigurumi version of himself for his birthday. I'm relatively new to crochet and I wasn't confident about making up my own pattern so I found a pattern for Link from the Legend of Zelda (http://tanoshimou.wordpress.com/2010/05/27/link-legend-of-zelda-amigurumi-free-pattern/)
and tweaked it. I'm rather happy with how he turned out.

He's only about 5 inches tall. He's made of acrylic yarn, his hair is fun fur and the little ghosties are felt and handsewn on.

What do you think?

20  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Yoda Blanket Buddy on: February 11, 2010 04:51:45 PM
This is my first project post on Craftster and I must admit I'm really nervous about it. There is just SO much awesomeness out there...

Anyway, I made this a year ago for a good friend's baby.(This friend LOVES anything Star Wars.) It was inspired by a bunny blanket buddy pattern from Lion Brand - I think.



and in blanket mode Smiley


and his little face up close


Sorry the pictures aren't the greatest...
