11  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Tree of Gondor Baby Blanket on: January 10, 2012 06:16:39 PM
Thanks for looking.
I think it took about 2 weeks of work. I marathon'd the tree (plus back piece) and did it all in one week, pretty much crocheting after work until I went to bed (while watching Doctor Who), because I had to start over several times and when I finally got it I only had a week until the shower. I find the best way to get projects done is to watch something you like and have seen a bunch of times so you can just listen. I have watched all of Lord of the Rings in a weekend while working on my wedding dress and and another time while working on another blanket.
12  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Tree of Gondor Baby Blanket on: January 08, 2012 05:58:40 AM
For my friends' baby boy (due in February) I made this:



They are lord of the rings fans and so am I so I went looking for an idea for their blanket here and I found: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=386496.0
I thought it was very cool and that I could use the same pattern they linked for the tree but I had some problems. First I didn't know how to tunasian crochet and I tried to use tapestry crotchet which didn't look right at all. So I ended up learning tunasian crochet from the internet. Then I bought a tunasian crochet hook, but it was too thick and the stitches were too tall so I bought another one and tried again. It still came out way long and I don't really know why. I also didn't know how to make the back right so I ended up just crocheting another piece and covering the back up. Having to start the middle piece over several times I got frustrated and made the edge pieces first which is why they came out an awkward size compared to the middle and I had to make two little pieces for the top and bottom of the middle.

that is a lot of hats! They all look awesome but that mohawk team hat is a great idea for a football game and something that would make the other guys super jealous  Tongue because it's awesome and warm.

16  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / tunisian question on: December 22, 2011 05:43:04 AM
I'm trying Tunisian crochet for the first time and the thing I don't understand is what to do about the back of the piece. I'm switching colors to make a pattern but that leave a lot of mess on the back that I'm not sure what to do with it. How do you all deal with the back of tunisian crochet when switching colors?

18  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: grow -mushroom DS Case on: November 14, 2011 03:21:30 PM
awesome!  Cheesy One of my first crochet projects was a DS case, but it was just a little DS shaped bag, it wasn't cool like this one  Roll Eyes I've never done tunisian before, but I was thinking about trying it for a project I'm starting now. Is it hard?
19  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Portal on: November 01, 2011 04:41:30 AM




The gun and the mask are the main part that is hand made, though I did have to do some sewing cause I couldn't find a jumpsuit that was my size.
Also I used duck tape to make the shoes.



The gun is made out of:
Foam rubber stuff that came as packing material, that I got at work, spray painted white or black
poster board spray painted black
a clear plastic handle sanded down to scatter light
a flash light to light up the plastic
some old wires I cut off broken headphones
and a lot of hot glue
I found a video online as a guide but I had to improvise a lot of the material.

The Wheatley mask is made of mostly the foam rubber painted and glued onto a face shield


and I made cup cakes to go along with the costume (it's probably a lie though)
