1  La la la la la la la la Halloween, Halloween... in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by RepentantAngel on: May 18, 2009 01:37:40 PM
Hi everybody! It's been a LONG time since I've posted anything.
My friend Ronald asked me to create a Jack Skellington doll for his girlfriend's birthday. After working long and hard, here he is!

I put a penny in there to show that his eye sockets are actually sunken in. This was the most important aspect of the project for me, and I had never tried to do anything like it before. I think it's my favorite part of the whole doll.

The best full-length shot I could get. I apologize for my foot and the bed, my computer is being fiddly.

I designed him to be one-of-a-kind, and I didn't write the pattern down. I want her to have a doll that no one else has. He was a hand assassin with all of the tiny seams, but he was totally worth it.
So, what do you guys think?? Questions and comments welcome!!!

Oh, how I wish I could have been part of this swap. However, absolutely no craft shops have reopened since the hurricane. Once I'm in college, I'll be able to do swaps (only 2 weeks!)

I just had to bring this here, because I've been thinking about it for weeks, and I thought that you guys would want to see it.

Twelve Angry Men's E.G. Marshall (Juror #4)

Rocky Horror's Charles Gray (The Criminologist)

The first time I saw Twelve Angry Men after seeing Rocky Horror, I thought that they were the same man.

Is it just me, or is the resemblance...disturbing?

Am I seriously going to get the first post of August?! Yay!!

Okay, so I swapped with KairiGurl. I swapped her an amigurumi turtle and a long, skinny mobius scarf for some shrinky dink earrings!!!

This was as close as I could take the pictures and have them in focus.
Okay, here we go:

My chief desire, R2-D2. The detail is amazing!!

Next, Pikachu! *says 'Pikachu' in Pikachu's voice*

Then, I choose you, Squirtle!! (I play too much Pokemon Red...)

And, finally, a saucy little pin-up girl! I had a bit of trouble taking pictures of this pair, because she is so detailed. I hope you all can see. The pictures don't do these justice.

This swap was great. KairiGurl and I both had some issues at mailing time, but we managed to both mail out and recieve at about the same time!

This was her first swap, and if you want some awesome stuff, I suggest you pounce on this 'lil chickadee!!!

Thanks again KairiGurl!

Oh man, I've made tons of these! They're so fun. I have pictures of a few, I'll have to post them later!


Here we go:

I made this one for a friend of mine for her birthday. That's her in the background.

These two I made for two of my friends. We all have an inside joke about turtles:

I just did another one for a swap. It's light and dark purple with stripes. When my partner recieves her package, I'll get a picture and put it here.

5  Ami-Me!! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by RepentantAngel on: July 24, 2008 09:24:52 PM
Well, I was so inspired by the "crochet me" thread, that I decided to make an amigurumi of myself!

I used the Geek Central Station pattern for her body:


It took me forever to decide what I wanted to do with the dress. This kinda came out like an evening gown, with some corset-type lacing up the back and a slit:

Under her dress, she has little panties. ^_^

And, just cause I'm so thrilled, here's a pic of Ami-Me and Kimberly 2 hanging out:

I think I might make another outfit for her sometime, this one doesn't show off her cute jellybean shape that well. However, I think that the likeness is pretty good:

What do you guys think??

Thanks for looking!

My package from AlwaysInspired arrived today, and I am so thrilled!!!

This poppet is a recreation of a doll that I had my entire childhood that was lost to Hurricane Katrina.
AlwaysInspired has done an absolutely incredible job of giving her a brand new life!

Here is a close-up of her face, and the exquisite embroidery there!
Her eyes are so very full of life, she seems like she's about to break into song!

And, finally, a picture of the two of us.
Thank you so much, AlwaysInspired!!
With love,
RepentantAngel and Kimberly 2

7  Breakfast, anyone? (Pics have had too much breakfast.) in Crochet: Completed Projects by RepentantAngel on: July 14, 2008 12:24:01 PM
This morning, I awoke with a rumbling in my tummy. I rose from my bed, and shortly thereafter noticed a delicious treat waiting for me near the toaster.

Due to the fact that I live alone, this occurence was considerably strange to me.

I approached it slowly, and after determining that it was not a threat, decided to indulge in a bite.

But, as I picked it up, prepared for a bite of toasted chocolate-y goodness, lo and behold!

In place of a warm and gooey chocolate-y center was an iPod! Thank heavens I looked before biting!

My only concern now is how it found its way to my toaster...

LOL. I hope you like it. I saw a lovely knitted version here:


I also decided to use the same story, to raise awareness of the recent appearances of mysterious PopTarts bearing gifts.

You should definitley check out her entire blog, she writes a story that goes with nearly every project she finishes.

I hope you enjoyed looking!

I've taken far too long to post this. I have had so much going on in my life for the past few months that I have hardly had time to eat and sleep.

These two lovebugs were generously made for me by pickled_peppers in return for a crocheted scarf.

Oops, I think they might like some privacy...lol. ^_^

(They have magnets in them so that they kiss.)

Thank you again to pickled_peppers, and I'm so sorry that I took so long!

9  A chemo chapeau, nautilus, shawl and checkerboard scarf! {Pic Hippopotamic} in Crochet: Completed Projects by RepentantAngel on: July 12, 2008 11:39:03 AM
Hi everyone! It's been a long time since I've posted any work. Sorry in advance about the length.^_^

I hope you enjoy!

This is a scarf that I made from my own pattern some time ago during a really cold winter. (For some reason, this picture is horrible.) I made one in the same colors, only with stripes, for my bf. It was done in Red Heart.

This is a hat that I made for my boyfriend's mom, who is about to go through chemotherapy. I got the pattern from the HeadHuggers website. This was my first time doing an entire piece in loop stitch (which is funny considering how long I've been crocheting.) This was also done in red heart.

This is another picture of the hat, with me looking young and pensive.

This is a nautilus that I made a couple of days ago, again for my bf (can you say pampered?) We have a running joke involving the nautilus. I used Snork's pattern, and we agree that it is VERY hard on the fingers! However, I'm really happy with it, especially the dimensions of the shell.

A shawl that I began at 3am yesterday morning. I've worked on it for about ten or eleven hours. Sadly, I completely busted my stash of this lovely Caron Simply Soft in Dark Sage, and so I'm going to have to wait quite some time before I can get more to finish it. I plan on this shawl being gigantic, with the back point at ankle length, when I finish it. I'm about 5'9", so it's going to be big.

A closer shot of the shawl's stitches. The pattern is very basic. You can find it here:

I left out the stripes and completely disregarded the final length.

Thank you for looking!

10  Re: Spanish Lace Afghan Pattern--Please Help! in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by RepentantAngel on: February 08, 2008 12:59:02 PM
I don't have any pictures of the ones that my grandmother made at the moment  Sad. Unfortunately, they are waiting in my parents' garage to be restored. I DO have a picture, however, of another afghan that a friend of my grandmother's made. It is EXTREMELY similar, but it's not identical. The Spanish Lace pattern is lacier than this, which is more of just a chevron.

Here is the afghan:

This is a picture of what's left of the pattern. I know it looks salvagable, but that's the first page of about five pages, and the rest are completely stuck together. Pulling them apart makes the words come off. Also, large parts are completely missing because the paper fell apart.

What I DO know is that this was sold in a kit. It says that at the top of the pattern. Does that help?

Thanks again,
