wonderful! Cheesy were did you get the clock hands? I've been wanting to make earrings.

I personally get them through my boss from a wholesale only place since I have to buy in large quantities. But, you can sometimes find them at craft stores like Michaels. Also, search on Etsy! I know some people sell small lots of clock hands for good prices! Ebay probably has some small lots.

They're various clock hands I bought from my boss (or you can get them from a clock parts supplier though that gets expensive very quickly) and different fasteners you can get at your local hardware store. They aren't meant to actually hold up hair since the metal is thin. They are strictly embellishments. I normally place them at the base of a bun or ponytail between the scalp and the elastic. But, they can be held in place with a snap barrette, too!

I wonder why I haven't these posted yet?! It's been forever since I've been here! Well, since getting into Steampunk fashion(which consequently has made me insanely busy), I've made a wonderful use of clock hands for hair ornaments!

So what do you think? They actually can be worn in shorter hair if you attach them with a snap barrette, you can pin them to hats very easily, and they can slao be used as faux feathers in a hat band!
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Convertible Hood Hat IMG HEAVY on: January 16, 2010 11:42:24 PM
Okay then, this design was actually a mistake. I was trying to make the North Country Cap featured in Crochet Magazine, but discovered this little gem because I decided not to follow the instructions. Basically once I had finished what I thought would be a comparable match to the North Country Cap, it turned out to be too small because I messed up the stitch count on purpose. Go me. So, I said screw it, I'll just stitch it up part way and it'll be an ear-flappy hooded thing! Well, it did turn out better than planned because the hat was a gift for my step father who wanted an earflap hat anyway! I added stings to the front to give it some earthy bohemian flair and discovered that these strings could actually be utilized! If you fold the brim up, you can tie it together at the back of the head and it becomes a beanie! Two for one! Since then, I've lengthened the brim in later versions to give it even more of a cowl look...but I think I want to make it longer still...

I think if I'm going to make it for men, I need to make it much much longer...Here's my hubby modeling another one rather unhappily (the brim is REALLY wide...but that hat is pretty big on me so it sits forward more on me):

It's a really simple pattern, too! All single crochet! Here's a link to the original pattern I intended to use.
I changed it up because I wanted to use a larger hook...and I needed to because a size J is just not big enough for the Lion Homespun yarn.

I maded one! He's so cute! You can't tell from the pic, but he has three different yellows in his feathers...as for the wings...Hrk. Double crochet and I have epic battles which I usually lose... so I just made lots o' the tail feathers from your pattern and sewed 'em together. It works! I call him Mr. Kweh McWarkwark. He sits in my lap while I play Dissidia and I make him dance when my progress chocobo chirps! Awwww....

Just rug yarn that I teased out...I honestly don't know the fiber content because I bought it at a dollar store. Hooray for dollar stores!
8  COOKING / Dessert / Pyramid Head Cake on: July 31, 2009 01:20:54 PM
I love Silent Hill. Love. And I love Pyramid Head. So, for my birthday I maded myself a lovely cake. I have no decorating experience whatsoever hence the hoof-like boots, stubby arms, and banana-esque Great Knife. I do love CakeWrecks! Wink Anyhoo, here he is:

Before the gore fest:

And after the gore fest:

His insides were quite tasty! He was a marble red velvet and chocolate with a cherry filling to represent the rusty bloody wonder that is Silent Hill. Mmm...macabre. The remainder of the cherry filling is what I used for splatter effect. Meh.
9  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Gurren Lagann Amigurumi: Viral on: July 31, 2009 01:11:18 PM
So, adding to my growing army of Amigurumi characters, I've decided to try someone from Gurren Lagann. I chose Viral, because an indignant chibi viral is awesome, he's also a gift to someone who loves the angry beastman, and I had the perfect yarn for his hair. (I still HATE attempting anime hair with yarn, but this time it kinda worked out.) This is the post time skip version (though I am sorely tempted to do his teeny towel outfit).

Without the cape n scarf:

And with his cape and scarf:

Maybe I'll try Kamina next...but that would involve embroidery for his tattoos...hmm...
