21  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Balut Stuffy. Yes, Balut! on: January 27, 2006 12:15:42 AM
OK, this requires a lot of explaining, but I already did that in my blog, so it boils down to basically: Odd friend gives bottle of expensive vodka to girl. Girl wants to thank odd boy, drinks expensive vodka, and makes the strangest gift she could think of. Balut!

Balut is: A delicacy of Southeast Asia and especially the Philippines, a balut is a fertilized duck egg with a nearly developed embryo inside that is boiled and eaten in the shell.

If you want more info just google it, there are lots of 'yummy' pictures.

I was very inspired by this little chicky.

Without further ado, here is Mr. Balut:

He likes to come out of his shell to play

Sometimes he wears his shell as a hat.

But most of all he likes to pretend to fly!
22  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Super quick and easy afghan square patterns? on: January 18, 2006 03:55:35 PM
This Sunday my brother's volunteer club is having a 'knit-a-thon' type night. We are all gathering with our knifty knitters, hooks and needles and making blankets and hats. Those with the knifty knitters (who cannot crochet or knit) will make the hats, because they can be done in one sitting. A blanket cannot, unless each person did only a square or two (which is our plan!).

My question: Do you know of any super dooper easy and fast afghan square patterns? I want to print up a few and hand them out. There will be many beginners there, so simple is best.

There are going to be at least a dozen people there, so yay!
Thanks!:)

24  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Fuzzy flower hat and scarf on: December 28, 2005 07:17:52 PM
I know there have been a ton of hats and scarves posted here, but I'm really happy with how these came out  Grin. I didn't use a pattern, yay! The hat and flowers are crocheted, and the scarf was made on the smalled knifty knitter. The yarn was a super pain in the arse to work with but the fuzzyness covered up all mistakes Cool



and on me, with better color accuracy:

25  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / First attempt at a beanie with a brim (if you can call it a brim at all) on: December 19, 2005 02:11:55 PM
I've been really wanting to make one of those oh-so-trendy beanies with a brim, but I could never find good patterns. All the threads I found were like "Just make a beanie and add a brim. Here's a pattern for the beanie" BUT NO PATTERN FOR THE BRIM! Nowhere could I find how to make a good brim. So I winged it.

It really turned out more like a flap that a brim. I made the brim rather large but when I put the hat on, it barely shows up, and it looks more like a flap that a brim. I'm thinking I need to add some increases somewhere so it doesn't get pulled against my head, but I have no idea where!

Does anyone, PLEASE have any instructions for a brim? Kind of like this one: http://www.livejournal.com/users/croshay/22879.html

Here is mine: The red line shows kinda where the brim starts, way up on the hat...

(I finished at 2am and was a bit grumpy it didn't turn out)

It looks better off me:


*Sigh* for now it works cause I lost my only hat, but I'd love some feedback!
26  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / The Emoticon hat! on: December 17, 2005 02:00:29 PM
I was inspired by the post of the domokun hat to make a hat for my brother. He's a big fan of http://www.explodingdog.com, so I wanted to model it somewhat after that. I made it out of wool-ease thick & quick, and the eyes out of jiffy.  I did it all freehand, no pattern, yay!

The eyes and mouth are detachable, so he can put any expression he wants!



And on me:


I want to conserve craftsters bandwidth, so I have more pictures on my webpage : http://arrrghmatey.blogspot.com/
27  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Drop stitch scarf on knifty knitter/loom? on: December 10, 2005 12:42:40 AM
I'm short for time for x-mas gifts (of course) and was thinking that I was going to use my knifty knitter looms to speed things up. However, I really, really want to make a drop-stitch scarf. Can this be done on a loom? I tried to imagine it in my head (looms are packed away for a few days) but since I've never made a drop-stitch scarf I don't know how to do it...
Thanks!
28  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Kitty from knit squares? on: December 04, 2005 06:27:47 PM
I remember seeing way back these super cute kittens, that I swear are made out of just knitted squares. Now I can't find the pattern anywhere! Does anyone know what I'm talking about?
29  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / what to make with 34 yards of SUPER chunky yarn? on: December 04, 2005 11:52:20 AM
Ok, I have on skien of this super thick yarn. It's as thick as my thumb! But, I only have a little over 34 yards. I started making a scarf in treble stitch, but I ended up only being able to make it 12 inches long and 8 inched wide, or something like that.

What is the most open, airy stitch that requires the least amount of yarn? I'd LOVE to make a scarf with this but it is so durn short. If all else fails I'm just going to wave a loose scarf w/ it....

Thanks!
30  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Favorite WARM hat patterns? on: November 29, 2005 01:14:55 PM
Well, it's 23 degrees outside and snowing, and I had to go and lose my only hat! I don't know why I only had one hat, I have a million scarves but only one hat... So now that I can crochet, I was wondering:

What is your favorite (free hopefully) WARM hat pattern? I see so many cute little lacey ones, but that won't cut it when it's 17 degrees out... Plain beanies can look really dumb on me, so anything with a bit more 'style' would be awesome.

Thanks!
