1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Using wire or ball joints in Amigurumi? on: August 08, 2013 06:47:04 AM
Hey guys,

I'd like to try to make my amigurumi more poseable. I've seen stuff around the internet where people have used wire or even ball joints. I'm more interested in trying to use ball joints since that would fit more with the project I'm working on and I'd like to have a relatively full range of motion. But I don't really know where to start.  Does anyone know of any good resources for learning to use wire or ball joints in amigurumi?

2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / "Ehhh....." Tina from Bob's Burgers on: September 01, 2011 09:59:18 PM
So one of my dear friends moved to Chicago so as a going away present, I made her one of her favorite characters in the world: Tina from Fox's "Bob's Burgers". If you haven't seen the show, please do so, it's hilarious. I started Tina in early July but I didn't finish her until this past Sunday. My friend had already left for Chicago in mid July but fortunately, she was in town this evening so I was able to give it to her in person! And now that she has it, I can actually post pictures!!

She came out to be about 14 inches tall if not a bit more. I'm not in love with her feet but I really like her face.

She looks a bit bald around her hair clip but I hadn't put the hair in it's proper place.

Here's a picture of her face! My friend really loved her and I was really proud. I appreciate all comments and feedback!
3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Pokemon Munna amigurumi on: July 16, 2011 10:51:40 AM

I've been on here for a while but I've never posted much of my work so I'm trying to change that. I made Munna back in May but I haven't had any time to post this until now due to moving into a new apt, vacation, and my grandmother's death, wake, and funeral. (Whew!) In any case, here's the psychic pokemon Munna from the new Pokemon Black/White series. I attended the local anime con Animazement this year and I submitted this at the Art Auction. (In keeping with the pokemon theme, I cosplayed as Chikorita. Wink) Here's how she turned out...(sorry for the blurry pictures!)

I was extremely proud of her. (I dunno why I insist on calling her a she, it just feels appropriate) She was nearly 1 and a half feet long and probably 10-12 inches wide. She was pretty big. When I was submitting her, I felt like I was entering a pig into the county fair.

There is something of a pattern for it but I need to edit it a bit more and make some notes. Let me know what you all think! I'd love the feedback. (Btw, I did include the lighter colored oval on the front of her nose. It's just difficult to see in these photos)
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crochet w/ working clock parts? on: July 15, 2011 07:28:05 AM
I may have someone commissioning me for a pocket watch and they may want one that actually works. Has anyone here ever tried to crochet something with working mechanical parts inside and does anyone here have any tips or suggestions as to how to do it? Is it impossible to do? I am rather intrigued with attempting the idea...but I've never combined crochet with working mechanical pieces (Or even non-working mechanical pieces for that matter..).
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / How do I make an 8-bit Nintendo afghan graph? Please help!! on: January 02, 2010 11:18:59 AM
First time poster, long time lurker here! *waves* So, after seeing awesome blanket after awesome blanket of 8-bit games, I've decided to make one for my boyfriend. (This is already sounding seriously cliche) But, I've never made a blanket before and I have A LOT of questions.

The image I want to use is this: http://www.palagators.com/games/Donkey_Kong.jpg
Or at least definitely the ladders and barrels. The score and the stuff at the very top I'm willing to cut out for the sake of simplicity. I want it to be about 6.5-7 feet long and probably 4 to 5 feet wide.

I was planning on using granny squares and I know you're supposed to graph it out on graph paper. However, here are my questions:

1. Does one square represent one stitch or one square? I've seen it done both ways.
2. If the squares represent one stitch, how do I divide up the stitches into granny squares?
3. How do I determine how many squares I'll have or need to make the image fit on the blanket?

I understand graphing is pretty easy, but what I'm really struggling with is how to apply the graph to the blanket to make it fit. Please help, I feel so stupid that I can't figure this out but I really want to do this for him. Any advice at all would be fantastic!! I'll probably think of more questions but that's all I can think of right now! Thanks!!
