41  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / A lot of different amigurumis... picture heavy! on: September 12, 2010 11:13:50 AM
Hi! I tend to post in bulk, because I am lazy. Here is 7 amigurumis I made all from patterns in books or on the Web.

This one is a corporate zombie from the book "Creepy Cute Crochet" that is now on my boyfriend's desk at work.

This sheep is from a pattern from "Harugurumi" website. Here is a link to the pattern: http://harugurumi.blogspot.com/2008/02/baby-sheep-free-pattern.html
I made this sheep for a friend because I lost a bet on the sex of another friend's unborn baby. It doesn't look exactly like in the pattern because I didn't have enough white yarn, so I made the body smaller.

This bird is from Crochet Today. I did it for myself! It looks sad a little bit, but I find it cute that way.

I made this dragon for a friend's birthday, from a pattern from Angry Angel. It was a hit!

The fireflower and the bob-omb are from pattern by Linda Potts, posted by Wolfdreamer. Here is the link to the site: http://wolfdreamer-oth.blogspot.com/2009/08/fireflower.html

The last one is actually the first amigurumi I ever made! It is a slime from Dragon Quest, from a pattern on the "Shh, I'm counting" website. It doesn't look exactly like the pattern though. Here is the link to the pattern: http://arpelia.blogspot.com/2008/03/slime-amigurumi.html

Sooooo, that's it! What do you think?

42  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / A lot of scarves... and other things... on: July 16, 2010 07:05:41 AM
There was a time when I wasn't obsessed with crocheting and knitting... but this time is passed and now I have always a thousand projects on my list... And not enough time to post them all Tongue

Here is some scarves that I did for my friend, mainly from a Bernat pattern. Some are "action shots", but I didn't always have someone to pose for me...

Here is a shawl that I did when I realised that my friend's birthday was in a couple of days and I didn't have anything for her...

43  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Circular knitting needles? on: July 12, 2010 03:53:58 PM
Hi! I want to knit two socks at a time using circular knitting needles, but I don't like the ones I have at home. The flexible strand in the middle is very stiff and it creates a lot of laddering on the socks where the stictches are separated.

I tried putting the middle part of the needles in hot water, but it didn't help much...

So I want to know if it is always like that with circular needles or if there is a brand or company that do really flexible ones... Do you have a suggestion?
44  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Baby package! on: May 21, 2010 02:50:59 PM
Here is the baby package I made for one of my friends who is due any day now!

Here is a close-up of the little ducky I crocheted using a pattern from Lion Brand (I think) and Vanna's choice yarn.

The blanket was crocheted from a pattern from a Katia "Qu Facil" pattern magazine, no. 46. I really should have blocked it, I regret it now...

The last piece is obviously knitted and not crocheted. I used a super-old pattern that my mother had when I was myself a baby.

She loved the package and her favorite was the duck. What do you think?
Thanks for looking!

45  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Socks, socks and more socks! on: May 21, 2010 02:31:28 PM
Here is some pairs of socks I knitted since I saw a girl on the bus knitting socks and I tought it looked like so much fun!

This is my favorite pair, done from a Bernat free pattern called "Knit socks for the family" and mostly Vanna's choice yarn. I love the coloured stripes!

This pair was made with a pattern from the book "Love to knit" (Browyn Loventhal). I like the colours on it and the native vibe it has (if you understand what I mean Tongue), but I'm not in love with the actual sock pattern. The stitches are kind of loose at the top and the heel looks a little bit awkward. I have to redo the same socks but using the Bernat pattern for the heel and toes.

These were also done with the "Love to knit" pattern (before I discovered the Bernat one). I tried to make a Dracky from the Dragon Quest games.

These are the last ones I have to show for now. I don't remember what pattern I used though. The yarn is really super soft, which is comfortable, but dangerous on a hard-wood floor!

Thanks for looking!

46  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Frog Ipod cover on: April 16, 2010 06:42:00 PM
Here is a frog I made using the pattern for the cat Ipod case.

I didn't do the plastic cover on the underside, but I regret it now, since it would have been really useful. I'll do it on the next one for sure!
47  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Moogle Hat! on: April 11, 2010 12:28:53 PM
My first creation (meaning the first project I did without following a pattern!) My boyfriend and I are huge geeks and we thought that a hat in the shape of a Moogle head (from the Final Fantasy serie) would look super cute, even if it is a little bit ridiculous.  Grin

For the people who know about Moogles, I used an image of a Moogle from Kingdom Hearts for the proportions, colors and details.

Here is the hat... I might need a stand or something instead of a Eeyore teddy bear...

And here is my boyfriend, proudly wearing the hat!

The only tricky thing to do was to get the pompom holder to stick straight in the air. I ended up having to put cardboard inside the hat to make kind of a stand for the pompom holder. The important thing is that it works!
48  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Owly Owl on: April 09, 2010 11:44:00 AM
Here is a little owl I did using a pattern from Lion Brand Yarn. The eyes are not exactly like in the pattern, but it is still cute.

I used Vanna's choice yarn in the same colours as in the pattern, because I happenend to have it already, so it was perfect! I used a size 5.5 mm crochet hook (I don't know the equivalents in letters by heart) which is a little bit bigger than what they were proposing. I crochet super thight naturally, so it works for me.
49  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / A little bear... umm mouse! on: April 09, 2010 11:33:46 AM
This is a little mouse I did following the pattern in The Happy Hooker. His name is Louis the Mouse (named by one of my friend, I personally wanted to name it Mousy Soft-Head, because I didn't fill the head enough compared to the body Tongue )

It was supposed to be a bear, but my cotton was too thick compared to the other yarn and when I made the face, I realised it looked like a mouse. So I rolled with it and made bigger ears.

Also, the picture is really dark, I should have taken it with a lighter background... Sorry!
50  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Thick thick scarf on: April 09, 2010 11:25:11 AM
This is my first posted project, so I hope I don't mess it up! Tongue Also, I'm French-speaking, so if you notice that some sentences sound a little bit strange, it's because of that!

This is a ridiculously thick scarf I made for my mom, even if it is too hot now for her to wear... At least she'll have it for next winter!

I used a super thick yarn, but I don't remember the name. It's the kind you have to roll into a ball before using it, so I didn't keep the paper around it... And size 10 mm knitting needles. It was super fast to do, because of the thickness of the yarn and the width of the needles!
