1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Have You Seen This Chicken? on: December 01, 2006 08:21:38 AM

Wait a minute... you're not a chicken at all!

The infamous Feathers McGraw, amigurumi-ized for husband's Christmas present.  Smiley
2  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Is there hope for this wheel? on: August 21, 2005 12:59:24 PM
Can some of you more experienced spinners tell me if this wheel can be saved?

I know absolutely nothing about spinning, although I've had an interest in it for a few years... I picked this one up on a total whim for $4 at a garage sale. 
From what I've read on the web, I know I need a drive band, and my flyer is broken (can I just replace the whole flyer?), but I'm not sure what else I should be looking at.  I'm reading about tension and tpi and I'm starting to get scared... Wink
3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / scary bender-esque robot on: July 22, 2005 03:57:19 PM
How do I spell pain?  "c-r-o-c-h-e-t-b-e-n-d-e-r"   Wink
This project was so hard and drawn out.  And while I'm not 100% happy with the rather sloppy result, I am glad to be done with it, and that it came out looking like who it was supposed to look like, albeit in a rather scary way...

I was very much inspired by the works here:
but I wanted something that I made myself (gift for hubby) and I wanted to give bender a body that would actually hold stuff.  Here he is with his body door open:

So glad to be done, I had to post it somewhere. Smiley Phew, thanks for looking!
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / crocheting in the round and turning on: June 20, 2005 04:36:49 PM
Maybe it is just my amateurish crochet skills that are at fault, but does anybody have any tips for doing a smooth/invisible turn when crocheting in the round?  When I am crocheting a circle, I join the last stitch to the first with a slip stitch, ch1, turn, then start sc'ing around again, but it leaves me with a rather noticeable sort of... uh... hiccup there... sort of a bump, more of a disruption in the general look of the sc's...  Is there a trick to doing the turn so it isn't so obvious?
5  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Another amigurumi question on: June 14, 2005 06:29:07 PM
Maybe this is a silly question, but I can't figure it out... in Japanese amigurumi patterns, how does one use the 3 dashed numbers to understand how to increase and decrease?
Example here, very cute kabutomushi pattern:
So for the back section, (part 1 of the green table), you'd chain 8, and then do 18 sc in the chain, and then for rounds 2 through 5 you do a 1 - 6 - 4 increase?
I can read a bit of Japanese, and I can understand the charts, but I can't for the life of me figure out how those numbers correspond to increases and decreases.  Please, someone, help?
