1  Re: Granny Square Crochetalong!!! in Crochetalongs by SariatheCat on: July 28, 2008 05:49:47 PM
Woo-hoo! Maybe posting my WIP will motivate me to make some more squares!  Roll Eyes

I started this 1-up Super Mario mushroom afghan a couple months ago and it is taking me FOREVER...it needs over 350 granny squares! Each square = 1 pixel. I know this has been done somewhere else (how I got inspired) but I can't find the link for it. Anyway, I am super excited and laying it all out made me feel a lot better about my progress. Grin

Oh, and is anyone else having trouble with some wonky uneven-ness in the square sizes? Huh Some of my squares I guess I made with much tighter stitches and others with looser ones because some of them have a huge size difference! Any way to correct this once you sew them all together?

2  Elyse the Bear Amigurumi! (3 medium pics) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by SariatheCat on: July 27, 2008 07:59:13 PM
I am studying abroad in Japan and leaving in a month so my boyfriend requested I make him a "cuddle replacement" before I go. I found the cute Beary Jackson pattern by Rheatheylia and set to work. He named her Elyse after my middle name. Smiley

This project contained a lot of firsts for me! It was my first time making an amigurumi that required assembly...you can probably tell from the wonky limbs! Still getting the hang of sewing.

I also learned how to embroider (on felt, no less) so I could make her sweet and crooked face! It took me about 3 tries to get a face I liked, though. Cheesy

Elyse next to Tyler's big head for size reference. She's about 6 or 7 inches long. I only deviated from the pattern a little to make her limbs shorter. (Oh, and Tyler wants everyone to know he's very upset about getting his picture posted yet again on a craft forum Embarrassed).

I used Red Heart Soft Yarn for her body and Sugar n Cream for her ears, "paw palms," and feet bottoms. Thanks for looking and thank you so much, Rheatheylia, for your lovely and easy-to-follow pattern! I learned a lot from it. Cheesy

3  1st Crochet! Beanie + Ipod Cozy (4 pics) in Crochet: Completed Projects by SariatheCat on: July 27, 2008 01:03:57 AM
First topic start! Ahhh!  Shocked I lurked for a very long time here, admiring everyone's work, and only now have the guts to post my humble completed crochet.

The first ever "real" thing I've made was a double crochet beanie for my boyfriend from the Happy Hooker book:

Here he is modeling it.

Goof! Notice how the hat color matches his pretty green eyes. Roll Eyes

It is quite wonky and the back part (not pictured) is especially lumpy, but it has seen a lot of good use and love.

3rd Generation Ipod Cozy:

Out of the sock.

In the sock!

I got him an 8gb nano as a graduation present and engraved the back with his name and under it, "A cunning linguist." Tongue Since he graduated with a B.A. in Linguistics. Anyway, I was hard-pressed to find a pattern to fit the new Ipod nanos but eventually I stumbled upon this baby, which gave me all I needed to know. The pattern calls for felting but I used Sugar n Cream yarn so I left it as is.

I am working on a lot of other stuff and will hopefully post again soon, but I just wanted to show off my ultra newbie creations.
