Heyloo! I've been around for a while, amazed at all the people here and all the awesome stuff you guys do<3
Finally decided to post something(s) of my own :3
Commencing first post!
(The links are just to pics off my Flickr. Please ignore the crappiness of pictures. I'm a crafter, unfortunately not a photographer XD)
This is something I made a LONG while ago, when I first got into Amigurumi. I'm a gamer and was heavily into WoW when I made this. Never getting to go to Blizzcon, I of course didn't get the Murky baby murloc pet :< So I made myself one! The multicolored yarn is due to the fact that I didn't have any else on hand haha.
(If you don't know what a murloc is, http://www.playthingofthegods.com/DianiusPetsGuide/PetMurlocMurky.jpg
, it's from World of Warcraft)
OMG were the spikes hard. They were made with about four stitches to a round, swapping colours in them. Augh, I am definitely figuring out a different way to do that when I finally revise the pattern. I'm just glad I wrote it down though haha...
He's stuffed with scrap yarn (one of my favourite ways to use the loose ends and leftovers. I hate throwing things away, I'm such a packrat :/ )
My amigurumi horse, Ceres. Both of these were made up out of me own head, just having fun with it. Her, I made just about... ummm a month ago? I've improved a bit since Murky, but she has SUCH a long way to go. Mostly on the body, I'm pretty happy with her legs. I really wanted to make an Amigurumi horse that was proportionally "correct", just for the challenge of it.<3
She's stuffed with polyfil and, believe it or not, stands pretty well on her own. I bought some pipecleaners to help with it though when I do my revision. My problem is, as SOON as I'm done with any project, I usually lose interest right away and want to crochet something else! Ah, It's so bad.
She's a lot of fun though :3
I'm trying to keep up a craftblog too, where I post my projects and such, other things I'm working on. My goal is for it to help keep me focused, by writing it all down, you know? :/ It's been sort-of helpful, but I'm working on it! Constant vigilance I guess rofl
I didn't make a post about Murky, but I did about Ceres:http://carouselcute.blogspot.com/2009/08/shouldve-posted-this-while-ago.html
Here's hoping to more posts there, here, and overall craftiness! <3 Hope you like 'em!
