2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / help with shapes? on: July 24, 2010 08:14:52 AM
ok, i'm fairly new to crocheting. i can follow a pattern with no problems, and i've completely many amigurumi and a couple bags and hats. and my kids love the things i make for them! so, DS's birthday is coming up at the end of august, and he's *obsessed* with the movie "cars" well, obsessed with anything that  has an engine really, but still. i'd like to make him either a lightning mcqueen or a tow mater for his birthday, but i can't find any patterns that i like. so i thought, i'll make one up myself!!! riiiiiight. i realized i have *no* idea how to make a 3d shape other than a basic sphere or egg shape. and i can't seem to find directions! so, can anyone point me to a tutorial that can teach me how to make different shapes? any help would be much appreciated!!
3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Spagetti squash help, please? on: July 18, 2010 11:30:09 AM
another good thing to do with it is to make spaghetti squash salad. it's a great healthier replacement for potato or macaroni salad! just cook the squash however you prefer (i bake mine) then scrape out the flesh and put it in a bowl. add a few chopped veggies (i usually use a green bell pepper, a couple tomatoes, and mushrooms). just eyeball it and put in however much looks good to you. then, toss in between 1/2 and 1 cup of italian dressing. i make my own, but use whatever your favorite is. toss it together, and voila! you can serve it warm or cold, and it's even better the next day! my 6 year old loves it like this, and she even convinced my MIL to try it, and she is *not* the most adventurous eater, and MIL requests it every time i see her now!

5  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Guilt Free Desserts on: June 26, 2010 02:35:52 PM
i've been on a toy food making spree lately. today i finished some cool and refreshing desserts: vanilla ice cream and chocolate pie!

here's the pie, complete with whipped cream!

aaaaand the ice cream cone. ignore the disaster area that's my living room in the background. and the mostly naked boy. it's hot! and he just came in from swimming, lol.

oh! and because i can, here's a closeup of the swirl on top (it's blurry 'cause my camera sucks). i always loved the icecream cones with the little swirls on top.....

they're from a pattern i found on ravelry. i swear, i have a huge queue that's mostly play food right now, lol. anyway, enjoy! as always c&c welcomed!!

i borrowed that book from the library, and i had trouble with a lot of the pieces too. oh, and i don't like the way the head is made, in joined rounds instead of a continuous spiral. it had some cute ideas in it though.

i love your creations, though! i made a couple  ninjas for my kids, but yours looks better!

9  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Fat Baby!! on: June 16, 2010 06:09:28 AM
So I'm pretty new to crochet. I've made a few simple amigurimi toys for my kids. I'm also a Dr. Who fan. As is my dad. So when i found this pattern on ravelry, I just had to make it!! It was pretty simple, but I did have problems with the hands. I didn't understand the directions at first, and then when I figured them out, the way it's written leaves big holes between the fingers where the stuffing would stick out. But after a few hours (I said I'm new at this!) I figured out a way to do it that preserved the original shape of the fingers but didn't leave holes.

I didn't have any safety eyes. Nor did I have any beads of the appropriate size and color. But I did have a package of brads and some acrylic paint. So I thought, I can make the eyes! Yeah....not so much. Even with lots of sanding, and applying a clear coat on top, the paint doesn't want to stick. I even tried using husband's fancy schmancy painted for his Warhammer models, thinking that they were meant for metal and plastic, so it should work. Still no luck. I did end up using the eyes anyway, since the little guy is a gift for my dad, and he'll just be living sitting on his desk, not being played with. But I'm disappointed it didn't work. It would've been a great solution for me to make cheap, custom eyes!

Anyway, on to the picture! I'm sure I've bored you enough with my ramblings, lol.

C&C appreciated!
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: ideas needed for this yarn on: June 10, 2010 05:58:44 PM
i think it would make a really cute hat/scarf/gloves set. i love the way the yarn patterns while you knit with it! i think that using it for a sweater might be a bit much though, with the patterning. but then, i'm not very good at picturing finished projects by looking at the yarn. hmm...i guess i'm not much help, am i? but i love your yarn!!
