31  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / "Don't Delete This!" I said to the Cyberman! on: May 04, 2011 07:44:11 PM
Ok! My latest Doctor Who crochet! I did a Cyberman, it took about...3 days cause I had to pause to work on an afghan square for a charity.  I think it worked well but I cant get a good picture.  Its a little Chibi-Cyberman really and I like him Cheesy hehehe

32  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Needing More Advice For A Gift on: May 03, 2011 10:33:48 PM
I am thinking of making my favorite teacher an afghan as he is retiring this year.  I am thinking I will make a black and white checkerboard afghan with  appliqus all on it with his name, his years he taught, the comedy & tragedy masks (He was my drama director.) Also a little reminder of shows he directed me in or some inside jokes between us.  I would have to finish this by the end of May.  I'm needing a quick granny square pattern thats fairly quick but maybe a bit bigger, like 8 inches by 8 inches? Please, I need some help with this if I want to get it done in time Cheesy I love you guys, best community I am involved in with my crocheting, by far!  Any advice would be greatly appreciated! 
33  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Problem with my yarn? on: April 30, 2011 09:53:22 PM
So I'm making my dog this shrug thing...For a costume.  What I am doing is I made a granny square with a flower in the center (the flower is the color of the skirt she'll wear) and the rest around it is the color of the rest of the shrug.  Now the yarn I'm using is a sock yarn I got from my local shop, it was a beautiful tricolor so I didn't think much...Now its stretching a bit more than I'm used to....Is that normal? Does sock yarn stretch more? What would you suggest I do...I'm not sure if it will turn out right...I already undid like 8 rows to try and do them tighter but it did the same thing....Please help a girl out Sad
34  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Part One of my dog's Costume on: April 27, 2011 11:39:26 PM
So my local Humane Society is putting on a Strutt your Mutt this May and I'm making my victorian bulldog a costume for it.  She is gonna be Carmen Miranda, the Chicita Banana lady from Brazil.  So part one, the easiest, was the headband fruit bowl thing to me.  So I went to ravelry and found a fruit pattern group thing but sadly, the fruit had to be smaller than what was used so I had to kinda just rig it as I went along to make is smaller.  I've been making lots of Amigurumi lately so it turn out awesome.  Im using encore yarn for the headband and bowl so that it would feel better on her head.  Im gonna make a bikini top and ruffled skirt next for her, once I get pretty/soft yarn at my local yarn store!  

Her head is 19 inches but I figured out the yarn stretches so I am gonna make all the other items smaller so they will fit her better. I'm very excited about how it will turn out.  My yarn store puts on a ditch and stitch and we have a yarn bombing project coming up soon as well as some other things I'm making, like a catgirl doll for a friend!  Busy busy busy! But I love to crochet and I can tell I'm getting better! Cheesy Woot! So lemme know what you think of my beautiful Belladonna's costume, part one!
35  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / *I* have the TARDIS on: April 20, 2011 08:54:48 PM
It came out of a nowhere...That whirring started and then...BAM there it was! And at a fraction of the size! I have no idea why its so small but it is the TARDIS with the Doctor and Amy and Rory!

I got it done just in time for the premiere on Saturday! So excited to snuggle it when we start off!  I had a ton of fun doing this and I think it went really well.  The most time consuming part was the stitching of the details instead of the crocheting of the frame.  I started this for a friend but I'm not so sure I'll be able to give it up! I might make something else for her instead...hehehe
36  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / My Nephew's Easter Gift on: April 17, 2011 07:55:52 PM
So I planned on starting the Doc Who project next but my mom asked if I could make something for my nephew for Easter.  I thought about a bunny or a chick but then our family name is Lamb so I changed....After a few hours (a new record in finishing a project) I have this to give to him:

Now onto my TARDIS project! Woot!
37  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / My First Amigurumi on: April 17, 2011 11:35:14 AM
So I did this to prepare for another project (A TARDIS for a friend) so I could learn how to make plushies. Now I used PepperKitty's octopus tutorial (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=114316.0) and mine doesn't look exactly like hers but it is still pretty neat I think...
A bit like a cactus and an octopus had a baby...Wink I am happy with and I'm sure the little girl I give it to will be as well. My next project is something Easter-y for my nephew and then finally my first TARDIS! Oh, and heres one more picture of my cute doggy sleeping at like 3 AM when I finished it...
38  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crochet Cramps on: April 15, 2011 03:01:51 PM
Does anyone find plastic hooks more wearing on the hands? I have used a bamboo handled hook and metal more so through my brief crocheting but it feels like this plastic hook is making my hands cramp worse than ever.  I have already had to start putting icy-hot on my hands and get a wrist support thingy. 
Which hook, in your opinion, is the least wearing on the hands and muscles?
39  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My Geeky Tablet Sleeve on: April 12, 2011 10:14:52 PM
I saw the beautiful cherry blossom sleeve back...months ago! February I started this first for my laptop til I got a tablet and decided I wasn't too far that I could change to it.  The largest part is the sleeve of course, not the decoration.  My grandfather went to the ER and for nine hours, to keep myself calm, I crocheted...Just continually crocheted.  Thats why a good chunk of time was added to this, 9 hours of crocheting gave me carpol tunnel for a while.  My pointer feels better and I'm glad to have gotten to finish.  I developed it into one of my favorite things, something I really do "fangirl" over: Android.  I developed the Android girl with my other passion, graphic arts.  I took an original little Android guy and worked on it in paint and photoshop til he became a she with a bow, dress, and shoes.  Cheesy It was fun but then I came to the problem of a pattern.  I still am pretty new, having taught myself on youtube.  So after a while of trying to find crochet software (to no avail) I ended up going trial and error and I think it came out great today! Shes a cutie and I'm excited to show her off! Also, the tablet is a Moto Xoom, an Android tablet of course Wink

40  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Android Tablet Sleeve on: March 17, 2011 10:10:32 PM
I'm making a sleeve for my new Moto Xoom.  Its pink and this is what I'm gonna stitch into the front:


The words above it will be: "I'm Just An"
And the words below it will be: "Android Girl"
I think the words will be in black....Would anyone know of an easy way to turn that into a pattern, the android girl I mean...Currently I'm doing the head and I'm doing Chain across, 1 slipstich, then single crochet across the entire chain.  Im going to continue that for a bit but then I'm not particularly sure how to round the head.  Also, any help or suggestion on the rest of it would be much appreciated, especially the places I have to change colors on the body and legs! Smiley Thanks for being a great community, I love being a member here so much!
