5991  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: many FO's, ie: koi, watermelon, bunnies and more! on: March 27, 2005 05:38:23 AM
Is the koi your own pattern?  I have a pond - installed it last year and hopefully it will be something to look at this year!  I have I think a half dozen feeder comets in there that have survived the wildlife.. and each other... I can't tell you how many feeders we went through last year... hard to get these things going and we are trying to not go the chemical route so..... it is   a shot in the dark as to whether we are doing it right or not..

I really really really want to make some koi. Those are great... can I swap you a pattern?  I might have something you might like.. I hope...

okay.. I posted a few links under disturbing crochet in the regular discussion area of crochet.
I think it will blow away all the dark crocheters out there.  Too bad she doesn't share her patterns.
Let me get past my next craft show and I will design up some disturbing stuff for you guys.

I don't want to make waves but I have been asked to post these.  If you don't want to see bunnies impaled by carrots or spaceships or alligators eating babies - all in crochet, please do no look at these links.  There is my warning.  but....

By popular demand, here are some links for disturbing things that people have made...
and a few patterns to make them to boot... can someone make me a hat?? I only know how to crochet - I never learned to knit!

oh yeah. Patricia Waller is the name you want to search for when it comes to disturbing crochet.
Enjoy.  If you do a search for Patricia Waller crochet you will be able to find lots of links to her stuff being shown here or there...

It is huge.  It is probably near 6 foot across I suppose. I  didn't measure it.  I could call my sister and ask her to take a tape measure to it...
I resized the pictures.
The are in the craftster photo area and you can click on them for a bigger shot.
I will have to remember to enlarge the pics before posting them next time.

I sure will post pics when I get it all done.
I have really been loving this board.  I belong to a few groups and have scoured the boards looking to help people hte best I can.
I love the vitality of this group...and have found a few gems for patterns(ie the penis) It is great to see others out there just as twisted as I am.
I had run across a site on the web that had pics of someones crochet work in a european gallery - it was like amputees and aliens with genetalia and bunnies being stabbed by carrots.  I thought it was a hoot.. very few people in my groups thought it was just as twisted as I did.  I just love to push the envelop of crocheting if at all possible.  I am not a doily maker.  I love my 3d crochet.. love it love it love it.  Okay a lot of the stuff was pretty disturbing but I thought it was just amazing that someone made it all out of yarn.

I hope to be part of the furniture here.

Well, tonight is finishing watching return of the king (oh why oh wy did they use the guy that did inspector gadget's enemy as the big bad orc with the deformed face?Huh? ugh.  bad casting.  that guy really only belongs in cartoons.  He gets enough work that way with that voice.  same voice he has been doing for 25 years).. and I am going to make my first amigurumi.
I have finally conqured the translation of the patterns and I am all ready to make my first one.. of course I am not starting out with the otama which has to be the easiest.  I am going to jump right into the lamb.

Hope to have success and post pics tomorrow.

between watching toy story and my imagination, yeah. 
I am sure its been done before.  I recently came across an old pattern for a catepillar using a slinky so I know I'm not the first.
It was really easy to do and a lot of fun.  I was going to make a hook and eye or button gizmo to use to hold it all together so it wasn't always flopping about..........
I guess it was just too weird even for me.

Those red hat ladies.. it is a Red hat club - for older women and they wear red hats - and purple shirts.  I don't know how to explain it because I don't know much about it.  I am just so self conscious of putting red and purple together because of it -... From what little I know about the group - which is only what I read in a newspaper article - this group started so that older people can get out and do stuff?  The red hat and purple stuf comes from some poem that has a line in it to the extent of I don't care about being older I will still wear a red hat and purple shirt... okay.  that is the gyst of the poem line.  I don't remember it.  Like I said I am sooooo far from knowing much about the group.  Kind of like girl scouts for retired/retiring? women who don't earn badges and they go out to dinner and do activities like going to plays and whatnot.  Beats me.  A friend of mine's mother is getting into it.. she jokingly describes it as a cult.  Very jokingly.  It has made her mom happy and she has met some new friends and gets out of the house more.

It was all red heart super saver.  My sister wanted something washable that didn't get too pilly like the caron one pounder does.
I know that I used the "ocean" color that is the lighter blue one and I am drawing a blank on the name of the purple colors.
She picked out the color scheme and I found the appropriate variegateds to go in it.
The rest is black. Lots of black.

I had started one for myself but I was kind of repulsed by the colors I picked so I put it down.  I got about a third of the way out - which probably sounds like a lot but it was only a few days worth of work - gets longer and longer each time around and all. I would post a pic of it since i haven't frogged it yet but it is FAR too disgusting in my opinion.

I am due to make another blanket for us here.
I will take some pics of the train blanket I made for my 4 year old.  He loves it.
I have yet to make one for my 2 1/2 year old.  It will be in either dinosaurs or animals.  He loves living or was living things - my 4 year old is a train fanatic.

yup.  I thought it gave her dress just a little more pizazz.  I didn't care so much for the plain dcs going about so the popcorns were my next idea in that process.
I didn't care much for a filet pattern either on it... too many holes.

You know maybe I should put it on over to Crochet me.
I tried to go through the regular routes of trying to make money off the pattern - annies, leisure arts, etc but with no bites whatsoever.  I love the aliens.  I think they are adorable.  I had plans to make about a dozen different styles of them and several spaceships as well.
I keep threatening that I will go and self publish but I like crochet me a lot.  If they want them, I would be willing to have them put them up.  I could use the pat on the back.

I designed a slew of stars for ornaments(nearly 100 but after weeding out the ones that I think were crap, I got about 50 good ones.. then there were my faves... about two dozen.. you know how it goes!)
And I designed a bunch of other ornaments... I was a designing fool last year.  I need to pick up the creativity again.  I have lost my mojo I think.  I haven't even picked up a hook in a good week and a half.  I am starting to feel like I lost an appendage.
