11  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Granny Square Pikachu Quilt on: June 23, 2010 11:40:20 PM
I think sewing the squares together is going to be even more of a bother than making squares.

You just have to always have a ball of black or yellow with you and make a square whenever you get a chance to sit down.

Then when you get up to sewing it all together, take the time to sit in front of a movie and just get as much done as you can in those 2 hours, then watch another movie in the next few days to finish it off.

My mother reckons it's easier to use single crochet to attach the squares together than to sew them. Attach them in strips and then attach the strips together.

Thanks, dudes.

All of my friends already know me as a crazy knitting girl. So, I don't really get worried about people thinking I'm odd. It also helps that my friends are all nerds who have their own weirdness.  Chuggypig, you should eat some bravecake and try knitting at one party, just to see how many interesting conversations you can have.

I swear I don't set out to be subversive. I just like to make cuddly things that could otherwise kill you.

The tanklet is hidden on the shelf above Ducky's computer, right between his speakers. It has a view of his bed, scandal!

It could be worse, bahookie. My Mum has been working on a baby jumper for the last 2 years. It's spent 1 of those years "hiding" on top of the china cabinet where my brother and father hid it.

Host bombing sounds like it could really become a huge movement around crafters. as long as your friend is the sort of person who'd appreciate a tiny yarny goody (Who wouldn't?).

I have another party to go to in 2 Saturdays time. I will have to make something. Maybe a teapot. And I will bring some cotton balls to stuff it with, tissues are unsatisfactory.

* megziewoodles hugs for everyone who also misses real hugs.

I hope you all get real hugs soon. Mine will be in September.

Thanks for the compliments. I learned why you need an embroidery hoop and that you shouldn't tape the paper with the design onto the back of the fabric and stitch through it. It's pretty relaxing.

I saw the comic and instantly knew how Randall (the artist) felt. It describes how I feel better than I could with words.

Here's a stitching I made for my boyfriend when he had to go back home to Germany.

EDIT: I figured I should probably give you some details.

It's the final frame of this xkcd strip. I stitched onto a scrap of white polycotton with blue embroidery floss. It was my first attempt at embroidering something other than cross stitch.

So, like any normal 21 year old I go to parties sometimes. And like any normal craftaholic I crochet at parties sometimes.

So I present to you my tanklet. He's small enough to fit in the palm of my hand.

I started him at 9:45pm and finished him at 11:45pm. He's just single crochet, cheap acrylic yarn and stuffed with tissues (They were all I had). And of course, when I was finished with him I hid him somewhere in the host's house. But retrieved him from his hidey hole in the morning to take photos.

Everyone at the party was impressed. I got asked stuff like "How long would it take you to knit a tea cosy?" and "Can you make a tessaract?" because the people at the party were cool. Other memorable quotes include "You're good value, I'm gonna add you on facebook" and "Oh, so you made that? I thought you just gave birth to it".

So yeah, definitely go to parties, drink all the milk, learn that tanks with two shooters are mammoth tanks, make friends with geeks, make something out of yarn and then hide it there (preferably in the fridge).

Here is his better side.

I tie all of my scraps that are longer than about a foot together and wind them into a big ball. Then, when I'm looking for something easy I make granny squares out of them. When I finish a blanket it is going to Wrap with love.

For the shorties I use them as stuffing.

Whee! Love it!

I adore the style of the pic, it reminds me of the Monkey Island games which makes me double happy.
18  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / I need healing! on: February 02, 2010 08:11:17 PM
One of my friends is a sad hippo at the moment, so I thought I'd make him something to cheer him up. He's depressed and we refer to depression as a dragon that must be beaten. Hence the healing potion.

This potion of full healing was made entirely in single crochet. It is very huggable.

You can store it anywhere! With your favourite treasures:

Or in the fridge to keep it cool:

I based it on the potions of full healing from Diablo 1.

You win the internet! Your attention to detail is amazing.

I'm a space nerd too. But the spaceships I make are from sci-fi.
20  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / A rather geeky blanket. on: December 26, 2009 03:55:03 AM
This blanket is the thing that I am most proud of in my entire crafting life.

It's done entirely in trebles using a filet crochet pattern for a doily. It's about 1.2m square which is big enough to snuggle up in.

I did each colour segment separately, joining them in as I went.

The design on the blanket is the Seal of Rassilon. It's one of the symbols used by the Time Lords in the old series of Doctor Who.

Here it is, featuring yours truly.

And here it is, so you can see the design clearly. Being held up by my fried Tess.

And here is some linkage to the pattern I used.
