11  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Look at my new yarn toy! on: August 01, 2012 07:31:04 PM

12  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / I thought my crochet could be a bit more sonic... on: July 25, 2012 11:52:57 PM
Just finished a mini project! I did this so I don't grow tired of my Doctor Who scarf project. Little projects in the middle make it not as tedious/monotonous. I had found the sonic pattern (http://thiemecraft.livejournal.com/4195.html) on a girl's page a few weeks ago and said I'd make it...Hers did not have the strips of blue or button, I wanted a bit more detail To make sure it doesn't bend, I broke a pencil and stuffed it inside to keep its shape.  Easy and cheap, the way I like it! Wink
Here you are!
13  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Newest Crochet Project: Doctor Who Scarf on: July 05, 2012 05:48:05 PM
Now, my Doctor Who friends will know the scarf I mean and be in slight awe at the thought of me making one.  They will then argue that it was knitted!  Well, I do not enjoy knitting as much as I do crochet and I crochet rather tightly anyways Smiley So I am going to make the 11 foot long multi-colored scarf of the famed Fourth Doctor! 
For those who are not Whovians (I'm so so sorry), allow me to tell you about this scarf...The Fourth Doctor, played by Tom Baker, is considered by many to be the best of all the Doctors.  He had the longest run from 1974 to 1981.  His costume consisted of a fedora, long brown coat, and the multi-colored scarf! He became known at the bohemian Doctor, the clown and he was loved for it!
So I bought all the yarn tonight, one skein of each color for now because the website did not say for sure and was only geared towards knitters :/ Nevertheless, I am excited and undettered! I will be keeping a few places up to date on my process, like my Doctor Who groups, my tumblr, and my craftster acct.  So there you go, and allons-y!

14  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / I love an odd -- ski mask! on: June 25, 2012 12:01:47 AM
So I saw this pattern months ago and wanted to hook it but just never got around to it.  Well after getting over a recent afghan (it was a long project, lasted from December to May!) I was in a very geeky mood! I wanted to show off my Doctor Who obsession beyond my recent TARDIS (I'm sending that to someone in an offsite swap for a woodburned DW box!).  So I made this! I know the oods are some of the weirdest looking aliens on the show (and my fave are the Cybermen) but its just too cute of a pattern! (and free!) Here it is: http://bit.ly/LKRdsj  She really wrote the pattern SO well! There were a lot of techniques I had never done before (one being making a mask) and she explained it so well, it was completely easy!
So here is my ood ski mask:

Here is my second TARDIS plushie, this one is for a friend who is going to create a Doctor Who woodburned box for me!
This one looks a LOT more realistic than my previous one, I changed techniques for a few areas and it turned out great because of those changes!

16  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / Dying Jeans on: May 21, 2012 08:42:01 PM
Howdy! I'm trying to dye a pair dark jeans (90% cotton, 10% spandex) gray for a costume.  I'm going as a Cyber(wo)man for a convention soon (Like Friday). I plan on fabric spray painting DW stencils onto the jeans once they are gray...  I did the sink method exactly with the entire package (rit dye) but it did not really do anything at all...Any suggestions?
17  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / December to (nearly) May Project on: April 28, 2012 01:00:28 AM

Allow me to explain the title.  I started this afghan back in December.  When I started crocheting, my mom though it was just a phase and I would grow out of it. Once she saw I was actually good at it and could actually make neat things, she started pestering me for something. I made her this neat scarf but she just put it in her closet.  What she wanted was an afghan.  Now...I really just like making amigurami, geeky amigurami or hats...So an afghan was going to be a challenge for my patience, especially since it wouldn't be a neat one, just a plain one she wanted to nap with and to match her bed.  I found an easy enough pattern, single stitch, double stitch, repeated over and over.  She's not that tall so I had it five feet across and decided to make it five feet high as well.  I got to about the middle of January and just put it down...I was tired of it and school had started and was over it.  

Fast forward to spring break and I decide I cannot start another fun project til I get this one outta the way so I pick it up again and FINALLY finished!  It turned out well and I enjoyed the ending enough to ask if she wanted a bordering and she picked out tassels which was good to learn.  (Will be good for my dolls' hair!) The green matches her bed fyi...So a Christmas present has turned into a Mother's Day gift but she really is happy about it I think.  I made this gif to show the progress through the skeins...I used Red Heart because I'm a poor student with a min wage, part time job and I really do love their yarn (its made it GA).  I'm glad its over and I won't be doing another afghan for a while! Well, unless its the TARDIS pattern I have, I really do wanna do that one! Cheesy

18  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My Bulldog's New Coat ((IMG Heavy)) on: December 21, 2011 05:55:59 PM
Finally finished my dog's coat!  It took me a while because I couldn't find a way keep it on her.  I tried velcro but it would not stick to the coat properly and was too large with these flaps I had had on it.  Then I tried this like little metal ended lanyard bit but it was also too large to get it to strap properly.  I finally did what my common sensical mother suggested...Ties.  I did ties of single crochet to go around her middle but with every other thing, the collar still looks wrong so I also did a single crochet across the whole front to hold onto her neck and that made the difference!  So this is the final product! Cheesy

19  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Mom's Christmas Afghan-WIP on: December 20, 2011 08:38:09 PM
Ok...I know its a little late at starting it but my mom picked the pattern and all so that's why I'm starting late...I started this on Sunday and just finished off the first skein. 

Its a basic double crochet then single crochet over and over.  I just discovered that combo with a dog coat I made my dog.  (I will post that as soon as I get some velcro on it so she can wear it.)  I am actually really excited.  My mom told me what she got me early for Christmas because we were at a craft store getting some yarn for this afghan.  She got me a knitting dvd and wanted me to help her get the tools!  She was going to get this little set of all the things you need with a book and stuff but I explained it would be cheaper to get the tools individually cause I had some of the ones included already.  Then we got some knitting yarn and a few books (including one on making dog clothes! *squee*) She took it all sadly and won't let me have it til Christmas though, hahaha.  I'm excited though.  Happily, my mom's best friend is also going to give me a sewing machine!!  So now I am going to turn my unused former bedroom into my craft room!!! Woot! Really excited about that!!!  Oh, and I think I have had my first request for a paid crochet item! So far, someone as asked about me making them something like my little doggie plush and paying me for it....Need more details but yay!! Cheesy  Now to start with the second skein!
20  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Newest Project: My Dog! ((Image Heavy)) on: December 09, 2011 12:28:38 AM
So I finished that Christmas tree topper a few days ago and it made me want to finish the plush of my dog I started a few weeks ago and tonight, I finally did!!!!

I used a variety of pictures of my dog (good I take a TON wherever I take her!) to make sure I got as many of her markings as I could.  Here are a few of them:

Then this is a picture to show all the sides of the little plushie:

The book I used (Won on dogster.com) did not have a bulldog but I freehand a lot of my projects and was able to do the same with this one Smiley  Here is one of her in the same position as the plushie:

Yay for my wiggly puppeh! hehehe
