Good grief, this is gorgeous!  You have one lucky friend.  Hitting 'this rocks'.

She's beautiful!  I especially like her hair. 
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Floppy brimmed hat and jacket set...with flowers and death grip! on: May 25, 2013 11:15:13 AM
So.  After many, many months of hanging around on Craftster, wondering where my creative spirit had gone, I moved to Norway and found crochet (yes, that's the short version!).  I've made more hats than I care to count!  And scarves.  And wrist warmers.  But nothing really very 'complicated', just trying out new stitches in the familiar slouch beanie-style.

Then!  My sister in law had a baby.  And for once I didn't have a panic about what to get the newest addition to our family for her navnefest (name-party)!  I'm terrible with gifts, always preferring something personal and unique, and crochet has given me the opportunity to make truly unique gifts.  So, without further ado, here's my first project posted to Craftster (hooray!) and my first crocheted baby items.

The sweetest little floppy-brimmed, beflowered hat I could find (from the wonderful Annastasia Cruz over at Ravelry - http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/floppy-brimmed-hat-2 )

And an improvised angel-wing jacket.  This actually started off as a pattern from somewhere deep in my black hole of a stash, but as I got more annoyed with the worn-out print (about three lines in) and more frustrated with frogging (after the fourth time) I gave in and just let the hook take over.

And finally, what the two pieces might look like if they were worn by something.  The only other things I could have used for a 'wearing' picture would have been one of our two cats (I value my eyes and like my skin) or my son's bear.  I was told very matter-of-factly that these things I've made are girl clothes, and bamse (bamse is Norwegian for teddy bear) is a boy, and in no circumstances was I allowed to put girl clothes on boy bamse.  So...I was left with this option:

Thanks for looking!

The cut and fit on this dress is unbelievable, you look to die for!  I'm loving the fabric choice, too, and hitting this rocks as hard as humanly possible.

I'm always amazed when someone manages to combine practicality with insane beauty.  This is just spectacular!  I do hope your partner was thrilled to receive this.

He's a beautiful doll (well, how could he not be?!) but good grief, his hair is INCREDIBLE!  I admire your patience, I really do, and it's paid off in a big way.  Hitting this rocks (because it does) and desperately hoping that this could be the start of a long line of Marvel-themed dolls...

That's a great idea - and kids seem to like anything that comes in it's own box!  Smiley
Don't they just!  Even though the things and the box usually don't match once they've been played with.  My four and a half year old tells me it's more of a challenge to do puzzles when you don't know which pieces are from which jigsaw puzzle.

Back to the point, however, I love the idea of a portable bowling set!  Using the wooden clothes pegs for pins is just genius.

I'm in awe of anyone who can bring things to life with paint (I can just about manage a decent potato print!) and these are just wonderful!  I'd love a string of these, I can't get over just how realistic they look.  Hitting this rocks!
9  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: Dr. Who Adipose on: May 25, 2013 10:20:07 AM
Just adorable (even though now I'm all sad because I associate the adipose with Donna and FEELS and things)!  His (her?) facial expression is just right, really too cute for words.  I want a room full of these to sleep in!  A big, squishy, human-fat-alien-baby room!

I...I don't even know where to start!  The 3D glasses!  The fez!  The perfect hair!  Good gods, love, these are all kinds of incredible.  There's no mouse in the world that can hit the ROCKS button hard enough!
