1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitty Cleaves! on: September 09, 2006 09:48:00 AM
I'm sure there was a thread for this ages ago, but it took me so long to finish I'm making a new one. I nearly completed this thing a couple of months ago, but then I ran out of yarn with 8 stitches left to cast off!! >__<;; I finally ripped out the cast off and did it again a little tighter, and it was done! Huzzah!

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / poor mojo's squid hat! on: May 22, 2006 07:28:24 AM
I was reluctant to start a project the size of the other, monstrous head-eating squid hat, so I decided to make this one. The original pattern was supposed to be for a baby, but when I knitted it, the hat was more or less big enough. I think it would've been better if I knitted it a bit bigger, but I figured if it didn't fit I would've turned it into a stuffed toy or something.
Incidentally, the original gauge was supposed to be 6 1/2 stitches to the inch, and I got 4 1/2 stitches.

3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / gallery etiquette for lousy swap item? on: January 29, 2006 03:53:16 PM
What is the best course of action when you recieve a swap item that's subpar - ie: something that is barely related to the swap theme, something that looks like it was made last minute, etc.? I'd still pm the organizer that I'd received from my partner, but should I post in the gallery what it was?
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / help with japanese crochet? on: January 28, 2006 08:57:10 PM
I found this adorable rhinoceros beetle pattern from the crafting japanese site, but I don't quite understand how the increases past the illustrated diagram work, even after I ran them through babelfish. The diagram for the body only goes to round 6, but the instructions say:
"The chain" 8 eyes is made
1st step small knitting 18 eye
2nd from step 5th to step 1 - 6 - 4 increases
6th step that way
7th step 1 - 6 - 1 increases
8th 10th to step that way from step
I understand that the 6th and the last 3 rounds are even, but I don't know how to interpret the 1 - 6 - 1 increase on the 7th round.
This is the diagram for the body, if you can correlate the numbers 1 - 6 - 4 with the increases shown, and figure out what 1 - 6 - 1 means.
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / one tiny thing - squirbbit! on: January 20, 2006 03:28:15 PM
I made this critter for the One Tiny Thing swap, and I wanted to show it off before my partner received it. I called it a 'squirbbit'  Wink
It was actually quite complex to make, since I love plushies but I prefer ones that are in full 3-D instead of just a front and a back sewn together.

6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / your basic sock monkey on: December 23, 2005 02:32:40 PM
My cousin made me a sock monkey last Christmas, and was going to make two more as gifts for other people. As she isn't a very crafty sort of person she gave up after the one, so she gave me the extra socks from that project. I made one pair into a sock monkey for her this year - he's just an ordinary sock monkey but I went to a lot of extra trouble to sew the outside seams with yarn unravelled from the sock itself. Maybe I'm masochistic or something @__@

but now that I've made him, I'm feeling inspired to make more sock creature toys. I've already drawn up a bunch of designs and as soon as the holidays are over I'm going to get started!

7  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Little Apple Doll Hallowe'en costume on: November 05, 2005 12:30:21 AM
I saw these creepy japanese-horror-movie doll things in a comic store months ago, and decided I had to dress as one at some point. What better time than Hallowe'en? You can check them out at Little Apple Dolls

8  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / CLAMP cosplay on: August 18, 2005 07:19:31 PM
I made this costume for a con in May, but I hadn't posted pics of it on here yet. It's from the manga Clover by CLAMP, the holy quartet of astonishingly talented artists who also brought you Card Captor Sakura and Magic Knights Rayearth! Of course, their wonderfully detailed art becomes a biotch to make in real life, so here's my crack at it.
The source picture:

I never did get that dress right, but I was lucky to have something like it already in my closet.
The sleeves went missing after the con  T__T  I'd crocheted the edging on those.

9  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Neopets plushie! on: July 01, 2005 07:52:41 PM
Anybody here play on Neopets? I'm sharing an account with a friend of mine who's getting me into it, and they recently had this random contest thingy where people sent in pictures of plushies they made based on the critters on the site! I made this thing in the two days I found out about the contest before it closed, but I didn't win anything ... T__T not even an honourable mention. Anyhow, I thought I'd show if off here!

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / green hallowig on: May 04, 2005 08:16:40 PM
I wanted to make one of these, but I knew I prolly wouldn't wear it in public. So this one's for a swap.
