Wow! that is just beautiful! I love what you did with the pattern, and I think magic is the perfect word for the yarn, amazing!

I'll try to stop by and offer help too, but if anyone is super stuck they can always pm/email/im me and I'll try my best to help. It is a challenging pattern, make sure you have frontpost/backpost double crochet down before starting (do a swatch to practice the stitches). I learned to fp/bpdc by Nexstitch's awesome video tutorials: http://www.nexstitch.com/v_front_back_post_stitch.html.
Also, I have a large head (seriously it's like 23 inches) so I designed the hat to be pretty large. People with heads smaller than 21 inches might want to go down a hook size.
Good luck, and feel free to contact me if you need help!

So awesome! I love Dr. Mario, it's probably my favorite puzzle game (Yoshi for NES is tied with it). They look great, and I like the dark blue instead of black, goes with the basic palette better I think.

I think the reason it looks like it doesn't work is mainly because it seems to be a bulky, fuzzy, winter hat and you're indoors in a tee-shirt. If you were outside, and it was snowing, wearing a cute winter coat and scarf I think everyone would be posting about how adorable the hat is. My advice is to wear it when you're all dressed for winter and it'll look great! (I think it's a really cute hat too Cheesy)
45  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: How do you store your yarn? on: January 08, 2009 08:23:35 AM
The other day I decided to drag my yarn up to my craft room (was previously storing it in the basement, horrible, I know) I then said the words I never ever thought I'd say. "I have too much yarn" I need to figure out something else to do because now I have 8 of those large rubbermaid totes full of yarn and sorted by color. Plus two king size comforter bags (the clear plastic zipper kind) that are pretty much full. I don't mind the clear zipper bags since they're easy to move and you can see stuff in them. Most of my yarn is vintage acrylic that was given to me after one of my MIL's distant relatives passed away, she saved it for me since it was going to be pitched. It works well for amigurumi or working the kinks out of patterns, which is pretty much all I do, heh.  Right now all my yarn is in the closet of my craft room, and a three shelf dresser full of crochet thread (given to me by my husband's uncle's wife, I don't thread crochet much but I wasn't going to say no to something that'd be thrown out)

I want to go to Ikea soon (I live about 15 min away from one) and checking these out to see if they'd work better for my closet yarn http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/50119643 Not sure how well it would work but sorting through large black plastic totes is getting cumbersome.

My wonderful husband got me a yarn ball winder for Christmas, it's pretty much the best thing ever. I know this is probably really weird, but does anyone else find the yarn cakes they make really pretty?
46  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: OT :: How does this affect you ??? NEW LAW on: January 08, 2009 07:42:00 AM
I think this whole thing is ridiculous. It's like parents can't actually be bothered to find out what they're giving to their kids or supervise their play time so the government steps in and does the parenting for them.
While this law won't directly affect me it makes me feel for the people out there who spend their lives creating toys for children that made with more care (and are probably much safer) than the ones manufacturers produce. Especially since all my favorite toys growing up were handmade by my Mom, handmade toys are just better.

Edit: dang typos
47  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Black jacket / Big collar on: January 06, 2009 07:37:55 PM
Sooo awesome, I would totally wear/buy/make something like this.

Not that it matters, but I never thought Craftster was for critiquing anyways, I thought it was for showing off what you've done to inspire others, share ideas and get help (if asked for). Seriously though, I don't see how this needs any help, I mean the first picture shows it in construction, the second is on the dress form (and nothing lays perfectly on one) but the last two on you look fabulous, the collar looks great.

 I love the asymmetry of it, the fabric/color look great, and I couldn't help but notice the button matches your makeup, which is pretty awesome in and of itself  Smiley
48  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: knitting Needles... on: January 06, 2009 07:48:06 AM
These are downright yummy! Makes me wish I had a reason to get some (I rarely knit) any crochet hooks in the works, or would that even be practical/possible with resin?
49  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Re: My Heart Doesn't Beat - It Tics. (Lotsa Pictures!) on: January 05, 2009 10:23:08 AM
This is so awesome! It (especially the thread title) reminds me of one of my favorite songs Stopwatch Hearts by Delerium, (while Delerium isn't Industrial in and of itself it's a side project of Front Line Assembly)
I love this, it looks like my kind of jewelry, and pretty much the only "heart" related jewelry I'd wear.
50  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Coolest nerd t-shirt ever! on: January 03, 2009 12:06:45 PM
Bwahaha! I love your six-pac, in fact it's the only kind I like (musclemen are nasty and I don't drink). And your hair is all kinds of awesome, must take a lot of maintenance to keep it so perfectly red, it looks natural (if bright red were a natural color). Jeans are cute too Smiley
