1  Re: World of Warcraft Swap Round 2 Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by Unimatrix-0 on: April 23, 2011 06:17:28 AM
Internets returned a few days ago.  I am so sorry Myyrh!  Thanks for reminding me. >_< 

Here are the pictures from my wonderful swap angel.  She did such an amazing job. 

The unveiling ...


The packaging was serious business!  I was so excited!!!!!!!!!  Now I have tons of bubble wrap to try my hand at that tutorial on the front page about ironing it to make stuffs for jewelry!   


All of the items in their glory!


A Mythical Healing Potion which restores up to 18900 to 23100 health with a 1 minute cool down!  And a potion to make me feel shiny! (The item description disappeared into the depths of my apartment @_@)
Both of these bottles are wonderful.  I love the chain around the Mythical Healing Potion with the leaves and the gems.  I have recently gotten started in jewelry making and know that took a lot of sincere time.  Thank you! 


A closer up images of all the awesome items.  The next in the row is the candle holder.  @_@ I love this thing.  It is now in our living room in use.  <3  My husband liked this one.


And the necklace!  An Entwined Elementium Choker!  I don't have any outfits right now that matches it but I hope to put one together soon cause I want to show off this necklace.

Myyrh did such a great job in being my angel. :3  I certainly felt special when opening the package.

2  How to Improve this pattern? in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by Unimatrix-0 on: May 10, 2010 05:39:39 AM


So several weeks ago I finished making my first pattern.  I posted it some of the results in the finished crochet section.  I have been making some more of them and began to wonder how I could improve the pattern.  The end of the pattern is really so so with slip stitching to finish them up.  Do you guys have any suggestions for improving the final step of this pattern?

Materials
Used Worsted Weight Yarn.  I couldn't tell you the brand. 
F/5-3.75mm crochet hook
Eyes 6mm saftey eyes
Black Embroidery thread and sewing needle.

Abbreviations
sc single crochet
st slip stich
inc increase (2 sc in a single st)
dec decrease (crochet the next 2 sc together)

Pattern
Rd 1: 5 Sc (5)
Rd 2: *2 sc in next st (aka an Increase)*Repeat 5 times (10)
Rd 3: *1 sc, inc * Repeat 5 times (15)
Rd 4: *2 sc , inc* Repeat 5 times (20)
Rd 5: *4 sc, inc* Repeat 4 times (24)
Rd 6: *24 sc* (24)
Rd 7: *2 sc, dec* Repeat  Times (18)
Rd 8: *1sc, dec* Repeat 6 times (12)

Stuff  the poring with polyfill so you can plan how to do the face then remove the polyfill.  When I stuffed it I used the end of the crochet hook to push in the poly fill.  Sew the face and insert the safety eyes.   Once you have finished doing the face stuff the poring. 

Rd 9: *2sc, dec* Repeat 4 times (9)
Rd 10: *1sc, dec* Repeat 3 times (6)
Rd 11: * Skip a stich,then do a slip stich *  3 times

Tie knot and your done.

3  Porings! (with Pattern). Image Heavy in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Unimatrix-0 on: April 30, 2010 04:37:43 PM




So I was determined to make my own pattern.  Since this was my first there were quite a few failures that I learned from ... painfuly, lol.  These turned out great though! I still haven't done anything with the loose strands.  I am going to leave them there for a while till I figure out if I want to do something with them or not. 

I got the inspiration to make a poring when I made my husband a slime using http://arpelia.blogspot.com/2008/03/slime-amigurumi.html 's pattern. 


They are about 1.25" in width.  (Tried to use a ruler but failed. oh wellz)

The Teal one!


The Pink one!


The Yellow one!


The Green one!


---------------------

Here is the pattern!  If anyone else could test it out that would be great! 

Used Worsted Weight Yarn.  I couldn't tell you the brand. 
F/5-3.75mm crochet hook
Eyes 6mm saftey eyes
Black Embroidery thread and sewing needle.

Abbreviations
sc single crochet
st slip stich
inc increase (2 sc in a single st)
dec decrease (crochet the next 2 sc together)

Pattern
Rd 1: 5 Sc (5)
Rd 2: *2 sc in next st (aka an Increase)*Repeat 5 times (10)
Rd 3: *1 sc, inc * Repeat 5 times (15)
Rd 4: *2 sc , inc* Repeat 5 times (20)
Rd 5: *4 sc, inc* Repeat 4 times (24)
Rd 6: *24 sc* (24)
Rd 7: *2 sc, dec* Repeat  Times (18)
Rd 8: *1sc, dec* Repeat 6 times (12)

Stuff  the poring with polyfill so you can plan how to do the face then remove the polyfill.  When I stuffed it I used the end of the crochet hook to push in the poly fill.  Sew the face and insert the safety eyes.   Once you have finished doing the face stuff the poring. 

Rd 9: *2sc, dec* Repeat 4 times (9)
Rd 10: *1sc, dec* Repeat 3 times (6)
Rd 11: * Skip a stich,then do a slip stich *  3 times

Tie knot and your done.

----------------

I am still debating whether or not it would be better to do the face and eyes after Round 8 or 7.  I think Round 8.  I am also trying to think about how to describe sewing the face so you can get the :3.  Pictures probably will be the best way to do it. 

I need to go to the local yarn shop and pick up some better colors, these were just for practice to test the pattern.  I am also trying to figure out how to make a devilring and angelring one too!  I have no idea how to approach making the wings. 

If anyone could test out my pattern that would be great! :3

Hope you enjoy the porings!

4  Amigurumi Golden Pig! - Lionbrand Pattern in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Unimatrix-0 on: March 07, 2010 09:11:46 AM


I have justed started crocheting the last month and a half.  So once I started getting a bit better I ventured on the internet for some free patterns to practice making some amigurumi of.  I found this cute pig pattern from lion brand and was like "This would make a perfect golden pig pattern".  I wanted to make a golden cow but the pig was so adorable I couldn't resist! So the above was my first free pattern I did.   I did stuff the feet.  The pattern did not specify that but I thought "why not".  I have no idea what brand of yarn I used, it is a small worsted weight.  A link to the pattern below.
