1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Lovesick on: February 12, 2011 03:42:14 AM
Valentines day always gets me as being faaaar too commercial.  Me and my husband sort of boycott Valentines day, simply because we don't need a day to focus on the fact that we love one another because, as sickly as that sounds, we love each other, every day.

I always make sure I make him a card though.  And this is this years one

You know when you've found true love, when you can barf on someone and they don't leave.  *giggles*

I gave the dalek to my friend on Tuesday and He was amazed and hyperactive.  His partner was even more hyperactive and she commandeered the dalek before he really had chance to touch it, claiming it as hers LOL.
Thankfully they have come to a compromise and now apparantly it sits pride of place on their bedroom dressing table.

Before I gave Paul the dalek, I snapped this silly little comic.  Starring Cassius the cat I crochetted years ago now.

I guess it's just my odd sense of humour that I found this funny.

Thanks everyone.  Im glad some people like it.  I'm giving it to my friend today so i'm really sort of eagerly looking forward to seeing his face.  The guy in question has really changed my life for the better and I wanted to make him something super special.

Thanks julianna for filling in my missing dalek knowledge, and hippierulez, I would love to see your friend's crochetted dalek at some point.  I've seen knitted ones around but never crochetted ones.

7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Dalek of crochetted goodness (silly comic on pg2) on: January 24, 2011 06:25:36 AM
So Before Xmas, before I even started making the crochetted Pylon I recently put up.  I started on making a Dalek for my friend.  He is a massive dr who fan, his collection is extensive, in that he has a room dedicated to all the dr Who stuff he has, so I wanted to get him something I knew he probably wouldn't have.

So Voila!  one crochetted Dalek

You know the silliest part, that even though it took me over a month and a bit of various trial and error, making up random stitches I have no idea whether they officially exist or not, and swearing a fair bit.  The part that I am most proud of is the teeny bit of light blue at the end of the sticky out bit or..whatever those bits of daleks are called.

I hope people like it.  I am going to try and write the pattern down, although thats gonna be...interesting due to the weird random things I did.  Like The grey grill looking bit I crochetted directly over the top of the black and, i'm not entirely sure how I would go about decribing that in a pattern. I'll give it a shot anyway.

The dalek is much redder in real life and stands about 25cm high

My husband is a nut when it comes to teh national grid,  he loves anything electrical and so for xmas I decided to crochet a pylon.  I learnt a lot from this experience.  Mainly to never ever crochet a pylon again.

Although if he is a good boy next year I promised him i'd crochet him a substation.

The picture does not do this monster justice, its over a foot in height and was done over many nights.

I think perhaps he is the only man in the world with a cuddly pylon and the only man in the world who would actually want one.

I'm really surprised lilbluegirl that you got that package as soon as you did considering I sent it on saturday.  Thats pretty quick going.  i'm glad you liked the scarf and cassius.  I have the original cassius still sat on my mantlepiece.  He's much smaller than the one I sent you though.
