1  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: We have alpacas.. and LOTS of fiber I don't know what to do with :/ on: September 04, 2013 09:06:53 AM
I would suggest seeing if there's a fibre/ spinning etc. group in your local area, where you might be able to sell it. I recently went to a weavers, spinners, and dyers convention, and there were plenty of people selling big bags of fleece straight off their animals. Obviously you get a lower price for it if it's totally unprepared, but if you just need to get rid of it, it might be an idea.
I'm in a similar boat to you- We just had two of our sheep and our 3 alpacas sheared, and before this summer I'd never even used real wool, let alone tried spinning some! I'm hoping I might have just about spun this lot by the time we get the shearers out next year...  Roll Eyes
2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Nananananananana BATMAN! on: April 23, 2012 05:39:13 AM
So after about 2 years of planning and saying "I really need to make a Batman" (and a lot of less-than-successful attempts) I finally managed to make a Batman I kinda like.
He's one of the biggest things I've made (other than blankets) but he's still only about 5 or 6 inches.
I had to make a couple of changes. He originally had red lips but they were too feminine, so I swapped them for black, which I think make him look kinda moody Tongue
Also, I overestimated the size of the gap I needed on his mask, and after sitting staring at him for hours wondering why he didn't look quite right, my dad just walked in and told me I just needed to close up the sides a bit. I'd already sewn him all together by that point, and being incredibly lazy, I just slipped in some black felt, which I don't think looks too awful.

And a rather squiffy, poorly lit shot of him with my BatMagnets. Just because, y'know.
3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Jack Skellington on: July 28, 2011 11:37:40 AM
I've been lurking on here for well over a year now, and thought maybe it was time to post something.
So here's my latest victim creation. Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas.
I took a while to work up the motivation to make him because I've been feeling really uninspired recently, but my friend invited me round for a making day so I just sat down and got going on him.
I was quite proud of the way his body turned out, despite the fiddly legs and arms (because he's so flipping skinny...) although I'm not too sure about the face. The picture makes him look lumpier than he really is.

I might make him a Sally so he doesn't get lonely  Tongue

Thanks for looking (:

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Art of Crochet Magazine on: January 12, 2010 07:51:49 AM
I bought the first one.
Wasn't massively impressed.
But, that was probably just because it mainly focuses on how to actually crochet, and the patterns are for things that I'd never make (I'm more into just making cute little things, rather than jumpers and blankets).
As a magazine for people trying to learn crochet, or just starting out, it looks pretty good though.

Although the 2.99 a week would put me off.
That's more than a big ball of wool costs around here, so I'd have to do some serious pros and cons before I subscribed or anything like that.

That's such a great idea.
Very cute indeed.
But still kinda creepy at the same time.

I'm not jealous at all...  Wink
