1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Yarn Storage? on: September 07, 2011 08:49:09 AM
I am glad they don't mangle them, they just like to pull them out of the basket and roll it around on the floor. I do have one of those plastic containers for my boyfriend and I's other crafting things (sewing things, buttons, sequins, a draw dedicated to adhesives, etc) and we are starting to move all of that into the amazing hutch that we found at a local thrift store so I may steal it for the yarn but I do love those coffee cans.

Someday my yarn will have somewhere to live!

Oh my gosh! That is TOO adorable! I am very much going to do that now, I have the perfect amount of wall space in my crafting area that I could do this in! Now I just need to start collecting coffee cans somehow...

When I first started to crochet, managing my yarn was fairly simple. I had one little wicker basket that I kept all my yarn in...but then I slow started to acquire more and more yarn and I have suddenly found myself with three baskets full to the brim and overflowing with balls of yarn. (Especially now that I have started doing Amigurumi and I seem to be adding a new color or two a week!)

Before it was easy to keep one basket on my desk but my cats now think that it is their personal toy basket...and I seem to find my yarn scattered all over my floor every morning...

What I wanted to see was how do YOU store your yarn? Do you use baskets or organization containers? Or have you come up with a clever way to store everything? I need some good ideas because I am running out of baskets!!!

I am such a busy bee! The only reason I have made all three of these in two days is because I work from home. So I spend most of my days crocheting. My hands barely cramp up anymore! Anyway, since my last post I decided to do my own set of crochet things and I decided to do something simple: Mario Mushrooms! I am doing a set of Mushrooms including some of the newer ones from the newer Wii Mario games. Hope you like them Cheesy

7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / So many pieces! on: August 23, 2011 12:54:24 PM
After getting into Amigurumi about two months ago and making a few things, a friend of mine asked me to make her 10 pieces that she could turn into hair pieces and little hats for Lolita styled pieces. So I have about 10 pieces to show off. These are my first real go at amigurumi and I have had a really fun time.

Mario Mushroom

Pikachu (had the most issues with this one)

Pokeball and Masterball

Flat Bunny and Mouse

Black Mokona

White Mokona

Little Mouse


Oof! So many. Sorry for the photo spam. I am super proud of everything. I am even working on some larger pieces now. Ahh! Cannot stop crocheting!

I think you're right, it seems like felt is the only option at this size with the kinds of yarn I already have. Thanks for all the suggestions guys!

I am working on some smaller pieces for a friend of mine, various smaller amigurumi pieces that she is going to turn into hair pins and hats and such. One of the ones I'm working on is a little pikachu. I'm not positive on the gauge yarn the one I am using is, but I have been using a F hook (3.75mm) to do so.

So far I have the body done, which was simple:

 (this was before stuffing he is nice and rounded now)

Well, I still have to make ears and a tail. The tail I dont think I'll have issues with at all (thought I haven't tried) but the ears are what has made me put this project to the side for about two weeks, but my deadline is coming up and I still have 7 other various pieces to make.

So far I have tried making smaller cones using the same F hook and it just looks like a knotted mess. I tried using a magic circle with 2 SC, another row of SC then an increase to 4SC, 2 in each but it still doesn't look right, then another row and it just...it doesn't look right. I thought maybe it was the gauge of black I was using but when I just tried to make the ears with the same yellow I used to make the body, it still doesn't look right. I cannot figure out how to make it's ears look...not a tangled mess of knots.

HELP! I am so lost and have no idea how to carry on. If you don't know what the ears are suppose to look like, it looks like, here is a slew of pictures: http://www.google.com/search?q=pikachu&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wi&biw=994&bih=581

I am hopelessly lost.
