21  And the Oscar goes to... HETTIE! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by hooked on amicute on: February 27, 2011 01:36:36 AM
Hettie the Holiday Ham strikes again! This time at the 2011 Academy Awards. Her stunning performance in Black Hamster channeling Natalie Portman from Black Swan has won her her very own amigurumi award!

Here's Hettie gloating over her award.

I'd like to thank my owners, Molly and Scott, for their love and support during the grueling filming process of black hamster. You paid for all my ballet lessons and for that I am truly grateful. I'd also like to thank the creators of cheese and cardboard toilet paper tubes. Now I'm off to the after party!

What? I need an invitation?? But I won Best Hamtress! I'm Natalie Portham! ...no, not Portman...

You know what? I don't care about this Oscar anyway. It's made out of yarn.

why nelson decided to hijack this particular hot air balloon: he wanted to find the perfect baby shower gift for a little boy that will be born soon. nelson was picnicking under the shade of an industrial building when he saw the hot air balloon drift by. he quickly shimmied his way up the escape ladder and jumped onto the balloon. now, how to get it down?

24  Hettie the Holiday Ham Strikes Again! ... for the SUPERBOWL! in Crochet: Completed Projects by hooked on amicute on: February 06, 2011 07:35:06 PM
hettie the holiday ham represents the green bay packers* for this american "holiday" that results in an overflowing amount of cheap beer, pizza, screaming, crying, money-losing, and wearing of obnoxious mascot thingamabobs. hettie has made this traditionally rowdy and sometimes gross american pastime into an "awww" worthy event.

*please note that i don't have a favorite team nor do i particularly like football or even know what's happening as i'm watching it. to me, it looks like giants with future knee problems lumbering around on a patch of grass surrounded by costumed, drunk, maniacal fanatics. therefore, please do not shoot me hate mail and/or post obscenities on my blog if you happen to be a fan of a team other than the green bay packers.

26  Carlile the Amigurumi Corgi - from a Japanese pattern book in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by hooked on amicute on: January 28, 2011 07:49:45 PM

Meet Carlile the corgi. He's a shy but loving little pooch. He wishes he could find the courage to ask the cute dachshund next door for a walk along the neighborhood stream, but alas, all he can do is hide behind his human's leg whenever she trots by.

28  Harold the Poo Transformed: Harriet the Pre-Op Tranny Poo in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by hooked on amicute on: November 22, 2010 10:06:40 PM

welcome to harriet's world. formerly known as harold the poo, he's finally found the courage to admit to his friends and family that he identifies as a woman, a woman named harriet. she's glamorous, she's fun, she's sassy and everything you wish you could be. she even does a little drag here and there.

harriet's hobbies:
lip syncing
giggling about boys
taking photos of herself
being an LGBT-rights activist

harriet's role models:
ru paul
hillary clinton
people that are true to themselves

harriet is so happy she is finally a free and independent amigurumi poo.

work it, girl!

29  a teapot cozy: mishaps and extra flaps in Crochet: Completed Projects by hooked on amicute on: November 08, 2010 09:49:39 PM
I have been working on above mentioned teapot cozy for my so-sweet co-worker that just got married. To be honest, I was going to whip up a scarf for her - easy and fast. After I purchased the light blue THIN yarn, she asked me for a teapot cozy instead. I got to thinking: should I go buy new yarn for the cozy that is thicker (so that it would take less time) and darker (to hide stains)? I was either too lazy or just stubborn (truthfully, I am both) and I ended up crocheted the cozy with what I had. I had a vague idea of what to do and how to do it. There were no patterns online for a Bodum teapot cozy so i knew i had to wing it. Increasing and decreasing my stitches as I went up the curve of the teapot, and, literally weeks later, I ended up with a nice round pouch with an opening for the handle.

My plan for the top flap was to have JUST ONE with a cute button. I sewed on the flap and giddily put back on the cozy... and to my horror the flap was on diagonally. I immediately shriveled up and pitied myself for my mistake until an idea hit me like an elephant kicking your face with its hind leg. I'll just make a criss-cross pattern and she won't even know it was a mistake! And here is my product with a few blips here and there, but I was careful not to show them in my photos. Wink

30  The Vegan Voyeur: A Tofu in Disguise. He's watching you... not eat meat. in Crochet: Completed Projects by hooked on amicute on: October 29, 2010 01:05:09 AM
The Vegan Voyeur was born from an idea that my friend and I had late one night. A voyeuristic tofu with a mustache?? YES! What an AMAZING idea! I whipped him up, threw on eyeballs and a mustache, and VOILA! He's perfectly creepy-cute. I used super chunky Lions Brand white yarn with fuzzy black yarn for the mustache. He's actually only 4 pieces because the sides are attached to his front piece, but normally, one would crochet 6 pieces and sew them together to create a square. He's all free-hand - I didn't have a pattern... Consequently, his right side of his mustache is a bit larger than the left side. But I blame it on his own poor mustache trimming abilities. Smiley

Enjoy the pics.  Grin

He's watching you... not eat meat.

Any meat in here?

Lady Gaga wore meat... He's disappointed.
