I also shouted "Hagrid!" when I saw the thumbnail on the crochet page!  How cute!
22  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Luna The Lunar New Year Rabbit on: February 03, 2011 08:59:09 PM
Since it's the Lunar New Year today ((aka: The Chinese New Year)) and it's the Year of the Rabbit, I decided that I was going to crochet myself a rabbit!

So thus, I made Luna!

She's done in Red Heart, white, black and shocking pink.  She's done in double crochet.  He tail is a cotton ball and her whiskers are mint flavored dental floss.  And she's stuffed with tissues, because I don't have stuffing.  Guess I could've used cotton balls.  Next time I'm using safety eyes.  I haven't tried them before, and I think as far as eye placement go, it'd be easier, and it'd save from the awkward looking eyes.  Personally, I think she resembles a shrunken Lamb Chop.  But still, she was fun!

Here's to the Year of the Rabbit!

Cute! I like the one with the cherry on top. And I like that you have them sitting on top of plays.  Which plays are those?

All I saw was the infamous "Wars" in Star Wars and I went...What is this?  Cool!  I want Star Wars sheets now...guess I should go to Pottery Barn.

That's really cool though!
25  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Let the beginners learn fully! on: January 31, 2011 02:43:31 PM
I've been knitting for a little over a month.  My sister taught me.  She made me cast on.  It didn't take that long to learn.

I went to a knit night last week.  There was a person who came into the shop where I was, and she wanted to learn to knit.  The person who was 'leading' the night cast on for her.  Because she was like, this is just gonna take a long time to learn, so let me do this for you.

But that doesn't make any sense to me.  I mean, I hate casting on, I think it's a pain.  But you have to do it to start a project.  I think it's dumb to not teach anyone how to cast on.  Cause then, you're gonna want to start a project, and you aren't going to be able to.

Looks knitted to me.  As for the yarn, I'm not sure.  It doesn't look familiar to me.

I actually wasn't the one that made Pee Wee, but I totally should! haha!

I do love all things nerdy and geeky though!

Ohh...I confuse who makes what sometimes.  But seriously, you stole my geeky little heart.

First Star Wars character, then Pee Wee Herman, and now Doctor Who?  Are you trying to steal my geeky little heart?

Oooh!  That's a good idea!  I might have to use that!
30  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Teaching Crochet to Girl Scout Daisies on: January 25, 2011 10:21:01 AM
I have tried teaching many kids to crochet and I start off with simple chains made with the fingers, alot of times they don't get beyond the chain. They could always make a bunch of chains and tie them onto hair ties, necklaces and bracelets or decorating a room with them.

I was gonna say that.

My cousin was...7?  When she learned to crochet.  She learned with a big plastic hook and some red heart.  And she did the finger trick too.

I recommend the chain.  And possibly the single crochet.  That is, if they get the chain down well enough.
