Those are excellent! Great work!

I'm such a nerd, I saw the tiny pics of them and instantly exclaimed (thank goodness to an empty house) "Ohhhh Mandragora"

I met one of you at the yarn store the other day!! So happy about that I knew instantly when I heard about the tuesday night gathering it had to have been one of you. For Springfield Area Crafters that can't meet on Tuesdays, there is another group of us who starting Nov. 15th will be having a regular meeting on Sundays. When I have a spot and time I will post to give you all more information as we're still trying to get with a few of the members to see what's good for them that day we've been meeting around 6ish @ Steak N Shake on Wabash, (I'm a sucker for a steak burger) we get dinner chat and knit/crochet. Anyone interested is absolutely welcome and encouraged to join us we're always happy to make new crafty friends.

:O Welcome to Springfield ladies! I'm sorry it's taken me so long to get something posted to this and I'm insanely jealous that I work on tuesday nights Sad Oh wells, anywho! I'm glad to see that there are more crafters in the area, I'm like the youngest crafting freak at work because I crochet, knit and sew..I'm a little crafty dynamo....seriously though I have the attention span of a gnat and have to do multiple crafts or I would go out of my mind. Though I've just learned to knit I'm actually trying my best to stick with this one project until I have it done.

I was talking with the ladies I work with, (I guess you could call them my crafty groupy) we have scrapbookers and crocheters and knitters all there. (I work at night for the cable company so yeah I have some free time after 11 most nights) But I was just thinking we all are crafty tons, and we've always got some project or another going and I think we all have that tote full of projects that we made just to make cause we could, am I right?

I don't know about you ladies, but I don't have any kids but I adore them I think they're fabulous, I just happen to have 28 nieces and nephews so I really don't need any of my own I can borrow them and take them back home and teach all of them to craft >.< (except the pain in the rear 16 year olds, they're too obsessive with cars) Anyway, yes I know I'm random and I get easily distracted.

The point of my rambling is this, I want to find some charity that we could do baby items or even toddler items like blankets, hats, scarfs, mittens that type of thing to put our crafty goodness to use for the wee tiny peoples who can use it most. I'm looking now for something that we can fit a variety of talents into and still get the job done. If you ladies have any thoughts or know of any charities that could use the help, Please! I beg of you let me know! I check craftster about 90000 times a day so I'm always around, so I will try to reply as quickly as possible. But I really want to get this rolling.

Thanks ladies!

Happy Crafting,

OMG! I was just sitting here thinking (as my phone blares out YAY BRAINS) I wish it was five because then Invader Zim would be on... I LOVE IT! Look forward to the pattern! Keep up the good work..

I agree with all the tips from earlier. I have been crocheting for 22 years and a really good tip and how I still learn new things or test things is a little test swatch. It allows me to test the gauge, see if I like the stitch see if maybe i don't want to use a smaller hook. Plus with crochet it's super easy to just pull it back out so you don't lose any project yarn.

I agree about the fun fur or any kinds of those yarns they're so thin they can come at times be EXTREMELY hard to work with, so I always get another yarn that either matches or compliments to go along with it. It will give the project strentgh and you will still have your hair when you're done. Cheesy

o0o0o0o0o this makes me want to sing the doom song....*sigh* haha yeah I've been plotting out that same thing about how to make the head all squarish and what not...if I figure it out I will definately be sure to get the word out.

>.> I have like seven bags brimming with novelty yarn....might I add....it works FANTASTIC for amigurumi animals...if you have the patience for that sort of thing...

Love the scarf I assume I will have a load of them tumbling around here soon when I'm done with training at work. I love the fringe I was going to add some to a scarf the other day like that and I just wasn't sure how it would come out. (sometimes I'm scared of new stuff, I'm totally not scared to admit that, plus I'm lazy and don't like to frog things. :-) ) I'm so glad someone else had loads of this too and I don't feel like I'm insane for thinking to use that as fringe. Did you just add it like normal fringe or did you actually tie it?

Thank you Thank you, Smiley I've been taking him places with me, It's insanely fun to go through the drive through and order a salad and then blurt out at the window...."It's for him.."

Courtesy of http://www.rheatheylia.com , Rheatheylia is a GENIUS!

The color of the yarn is chocolate, I've been sitting on it for a bit trying to figure out what to do with it and I thought what better than a bunny.

So after much counting and crocheting, Meet Bunpei

Sorry about the cruddy phone cam pics I haven't been able to find my camera Sad

^.^ Excellent tute! Thanks for that! I love that crayon drawings made everything seem so much easier for me then again I'm a visual learner.

BTW I -love- the tick doing the whole peeking over the page thing that just made me giggle insanely.
