I lust... I lust for your rings, your ability and mostly for the third (?) one down on the left side? Dare I hope you're selling it, and that you'll let me pay you then hold onto it for three months til I get back from my study abroad? I only partially kid
I tried to hit 'this rocks' but it totally crashed my computer! But it does! I was looking at the little thumbnail under hot projects and debating if it was just me having Labyrinth on the brain or what, so of course I had to click!! Awesome job!
I actually imagine that the bottles could be shreaded into the approximate shape of the feathers, and will do nicely for shaping as well. The styrofoam is not a bad idea. I like recycled cloths too. Some other things? Consider packaging for color, or magazines. Paper Mache is a form of recycling too.
So, my parents are supplying my favorite obsession for christmas... Camera parts. I have a Pentax ZX-7 analog and a Nikon 300 zoom lens as well as the standard lens. I have a fogmaker, cateye and "broad spectrum" lens attachment as well. I have a tripod and the slave flash driver. I will be asking for a slave flash, but thats already on the list. I like to give them options . Any suggestions? Preferred pictures are Macro/Black and White, but I'm a photography students, so I need diversity.
Okay, I have to second, third, fourth and 400th the "this rocks!" LUDO!! And on that note, I also want to thank you for the idea of how you made him, as I'm trying to recreate a Discworld of my very own and have tried multiple options! This is one more to try, so thanks for the idea!
I'm making a humongoid amigurumi turtle out of mohair, eyelash yarn and ribbon yarn. He's not so much humongoid, just really large for an amigurumi. I finished the top part of the shell in the mohair, and have started on the bottom half with the eyelash yarn. I think I'm doing okay as far as not missing a stitch, but I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations as far as working with eyelash yarn. Then, when I'm done the shell, I'm going to move on to the legs/head/tail. I'm okay with the legs/tail, but I want the head to look a bit like the Jack Sparrow turtles, only on a much larger scale. This will be in either the ribbon or eyelash yarn, depending. Any thoughts on the shaping?
Okay, so as far as cones of yarn go, they're a byproduct of the 70's. They tend to be a thinner more harsh yarn, but pretty much all my favorite sweaters my mommy made for me were made from coned yarn. It's bulk yarn, its very consistent, and its fairly easy to work with, mostly because it is a product of factory. I recommend it as far as durable sweaters, it goes a treat for cable needle knitting, but I don't know about crocheting. Hope that helps
^ I'm not really sure what your post has to do with my quote?
Sorry, I was reposting your statement because it was true. You explicitly stated what really needed to be said, which is just that 'holocaust' is not a single genitive term related to WWII. Sorry for the confusion. And then there was my rant.
