921  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby Bright Blanket on: February 20, 2008 07:42:58 PM
After completing all the many baby blankets I was making for gifts (every good friend gets one for each baby she has! Shocked), I finally found the time to make one for DD. It's only 10 months late, right? Undecided It's worked on the diagonal, which is unlike any other I've made, with two strands at a time and done with Bernat Softee Baby yarn. Pattern is by Evelyn A. Clark in Quick Knit Baby Afghans. (Sorry for the poor lighting in the pics. Oh, and I'm a newbie so I can't post pics yet, but here are the linkies.)

Thanks! Smiley

I will definitely try other stuff, too, but I was curious what items I could officially call Amigurumi. I'm a stickler. I'm weird like that.  Embarrassed  Cheesy
923  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Amigurumi Standards on: February 19, 2008 05:47:52 PM
Hey! Newbie here! Thanks to Craftster, I have discovered Amigurumi. Besides the fact that the projects I've seen here are adorable and would make great gifts, they're also ways to use up all my piles and piles of scrap yarn. So I started my first project last night and am already addicted. But I have a question, and forgive me if this has been answered somewhere obvious. Are there "standards" as to what qualifies as Amigurumi? Must they be a certain size or style of doll? Or is any crocheted dolly acceptable? Any links for free patterns? I'm pretty sure I'll be inventing my own in no time, but I have to get used to the idea for a while first. TIA!

Two nights ago we had ham barbecue on Kaiser rolls and some chips. Last night it was leftovers. Tonight it's cold and yucky and I've been down in the dumps all day, so we're ordering carry out.

Oooh, oooh! I love this type of thread! (Sorry, enthusiastic newbie here!)

Tonight we had pasta fagioli and thick, crusty bread. I absentmindedly dumped waaaay too many noodles in, so it was more of a thick stew, but Hubs likes his soups better that way anyway.  Roll Eyes Baby H is learning to eat all sorts of new foods, and she loved this one. Smiley

Two nights ago we had toasted tomato-cheese sandwiches (open face) and Caesar salad. Last night we ate junk at the movie theater for "date night."  Embarrassed
926  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / You're Part of My Resolution on: February 09, 2008 10:25:24 AM
Hey, there! You can call me GEN, or G, or whatever you like as long as it's nice.  Wink I'm 27 years old. I live in Pennsylvania. I have been married to my hubby for 6 years, and we have a beautiful, sweet, funny, energetic 9 month old baby girl. (Can you tell I'm in love?) We have a cat who regularly pukes on our white carpet. I like to read, write, cook, and craft, among other things. I also like to fill out forms and look at the insides of peoples' houses (only when I'm invited Tongue). I am a bit of a mixed bag.

I also have a tendency to become an internet addict, so forums are dangerous for me. My previous experience with forums disappointed me, as some of the members got way too serious for my tastes. I am hoping that here I can find a fun, casual, inspiring place to hang out, but also that I can be successful at being responsible with my time (i.e., not spending all day online!).

By now you have probably learned way more than you wanted to know from someone you just "met," but you may discover soon enough that brevity is not one of my strengths. Bless you for reading on.

Anyway. I have two resolutions for the new year, although I'm making them a little late. They are:

1. I am going to get off my duff and start living my life again. I am a SAHM and have allowed myself to get a bit shut in. So I am going to call my friends, set up playdates, take some time to myself, get back in the groove!

2. I am going to make time to be crafty again. I have so many crafty-type hobbies and so many things I want to try. I am an artsy person by nature. I love to create. But it hardly ever happens because I don't make the time for it. Because I love it so much and because I'm always bummed that I don't do it more, I am resolving to set aside time to be creative. That's where this forum comes in. I'm hoping it will inspire me.

Thanks for letting me introduce myself. Now I'm off to my knitting! Smiley
