Hello, everyone!

Not sure how many of you have watched the film Spirited Away produced by Studio Ghibli, but here's an amigurumi of Kaonashi (No-face) which I recently crocheted and wrote about on my blog:

... It's the Knitting No-Face from near the end of the movie!  Grin

More photos on my blog and Flickr for those interested (links below).

I recently took some photos of Rachat, a crocheted amigurumi rat that I made for my blog, and I thought I'd share it with the Craftster community! He has a huge head, around or even larger than the size of mines (I have a photo for comparison on my blog if anyone's interested). Made him using a size 8mm hook for the body as well as for his male kimono, and a size 4.5mm hook for his little black nose. The yarn that I used was 100% acrylamide.  Cheesy

6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Third Prize!!! Strawberry Clock Hamster Garden on: June 05, 2011 06:35:07 PM
Hi everyone,

Sorry for the delay, but here is the link to the Contest Winners Project page incase anyone is still interested: http://www.vannaschoice.com/2011Winners.html

I've been away from crocheting for the past little while and I just recently got back to making projects. Again, sorry for the delay!
I have to say, that Christmas Chess Set looks awesome!! Totally tells me that I still have a lot to learn to improve my skills for crochet.  Tongue


During the end of January this year, I entered myself into the 3rd annual Vanna's Choice contest and I won third prize!!!  Grin It was a knit/crochet contest, and I really did not hope for much since I felt like I had rushed the project a lot.  I was notified during April that I was selected as a finalist for the contest and just this past Thursday, I received an email telling me that I got third prize!  Considering how this was the very first contest I have ever entered in my life, I was very happy indeed.  Cheesy Anyways, enough said, here's what I made:

I call it The Strawberry Clock Hamster Garden. =) Some of you may recognize the two pom pom hamsters on it since I had previously posted them in another Craftster post, I think.  This project measures approximately 14" x 11" x 9", made free-style.  

Anyways, just thought I'd share my little project with the Craftster community.  Smiley  For anyone who's interested in knowing more about my project, you can read more and view more photos of it on my blog: http://jcy-works.blogspot.com/2011/06/third-prize-strawberry-clock-hamster.html

Hope you all like my project!!! =)

I believe the contest website will be posting up photos of the projects made by all winners later this month or in July. I will add the link to it to this post once I see them up! (I'm very curious of the projects made by the other winners, too ~  Tongue )
7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / What's Easter without an Easter Bunny? ;) on: April 22, 2011 01:39:47 AM

It's Easter this weekend, and so I thought to myself... what's better than posting up a crocheted bunny to celebrate this special occasion of the year?  =P

Happy Easter 2011 to the Craftster community!!  Cheesy

So damn cute! Is the yarn you use that makes them all puffy this way?
(I actually first thought they were sewn with fun fur and wondered what they were doing in the amigurumi board Tongue) Silly me

I used a mixture of bernat and vanna's choice yarns for these ones just because I have a huge storage of those yarn brands at home, but I'm pretty sure other yarns will do ~ =) The most critical part to it was probably the trimming part though (the pair of scissors that I used were very sharp and precise, which was awesome for trimming down the pom poms and cutting out the felted parts).  Smiley

I love the photoshopped eyes and mouths on the brown and purple ones Wink

The eyes and mouths of those ones were actually felted not photoshopped ~   Tongue

So, it was snowing again a couple of days ago from where I live, and I thought that it would be a great idea to make some use of the snow before they were all gone.  The first thing that came to my mind was taking some white scenery photos with my completed amigurumis!  However, since I have been quite busy with school work, I haven't had the time to actually work on any new projects, and so what I did was...

I made pom poms!  Grin
I think pom poms are really the fastest and easiest way to make amigurumis ~ they're really awesome when you want to make something within a short period of time yet still have them look all cute and nice.  Each of these took me at most only 10min to make.

More photos of my pom poms on my blog and flickr if anyone's interested (see below) Smiley
