1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Valentine Gift - WoW Arigurumi on: February 14, 2009 12:50:02 PM
So. This is my Valentines Day present for ma boy this year-- I was really worried I had outdone myself last year (his favorite game is Portal, and I made him a Companion Cube Cake).

But anyhow, I saw all the cute little amigurumis over at http://geekcentralstation.blogspot.com/ which helpfully came with a pattern Smiley And thought I would make one for him.

One of the neat things about my boyfriend is his storytelling. He is a fantastic writer and storyteller, and no matter what he runs into he always leaves a trace of this behind. So, in WoW, his main character is a little gnome female, a warrior, named Pips. He is on a PvP server and has a brilliant story and background for her, and despite the fact that I make fun of him all the time for roleplaying a gnome female, i thought shed be fun to make Smiley

So i looked him up in the WoW armory and got all the armor stuff... and made one!

Pips with the other present for him: The new WoW expansion Smiley

RUN! BIG SCARY MONSTER! (aka my cat Osiris)

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / RockBand... and wings! on: February 08, 2008 01:54:59 AM
A huge nerd is me.

Over the holidays I worked at the GameStop down the street (AWESOME) and I managed to get some cool swag every now and then-- including, of course, a RockBand shirt! ... that was an XL. I'm... not. (ha)

So I slimmed it down, added some new red and black sleeves (I'm a bit red+black obsessed), and resisted the urge to make it a hoodie because I have far too many. So instead I gave into my wings-on-back-of-clothing fetish (hi, Rinoa, how are you?) and painted wings on the back with some pretty silver fabric paint. They totally don't make sense, but I absolutely LOVE THEM.

Ok, ok, pics, I promise.

the front. + messy ass apartment.

Oh and hey! My computer! being attacked by my mountain dew addiction... moving on...

wings wings wings wings!!! *huggles them... somehow...*
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Black+Purple V-Neck Sweaterrrr on: February 08, 2008 01:41:51 AM
I'm so. so. so terrible at posting.

So I finished this... mm... like mid-summer last year, hahaha Smiley I originally used the pattern from the "Beginner's Top-Down Raglan" pattern -->https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=152316.0 but kinna mixed it in with the yoke for the SKB (aka the Simple Knit Bodice, which is beautiful and I never finished, of course).

Long story short, I kinda made it up.

I used Caron's Simply Soft in um... black and purple. woo. And some form of circular needle because I totally payed attention.

On to the pics!

Color is a bit wonky on this one... but still, full shot, woo.

more to the real color. Still a bit more royal than this, but whatevs. and my hair is wet.

So yeah. Hooray for sweaters in the middle of summer that I promptly forget about once its actually cold!
4  COOKING / Dessert / Red and Black Cheesecake on: October 18, 2007 06:46:37 PM
So... I think we can all agree that that multi-colored cheesecake is the s**t. So I promised myself I would try it.

So to celebrate a 4-month milestone for my boyfriend and I, I made one in our favorite colors: red and black!

Annnd... its really tasty. But... because of the black food coloring, when we eat it we look like big goth kids Smiley its awesome.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Star Hoodie Jacket on: October 18, 2007 06:42:51 PM
So... I was really inspired by Virgil65's work and I loved her layering ideas. I found some really, really awesome cloth at Walmart... mesh that had stars on it. I have been having this little star fetish recently Smiley

Combine with 3 shirts from Michaels (cheap fabric, ha), and some black ribbon.

I love it Smiley I've gotten a lot of compliments on it

I'm... Im cool.

Without the hood

Hope you guys like it Cheesy Annnd... even f you don't, I care not, because I love it muchos! hahaha
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / XL shirt = hot dress action on: August 15, 2007 11:30:28 AM
So yeah. I saw this post...

and was really inspired to make a dress, particularly in that pretty little purple color. Also, despite my favorite color being red, I have been having a huge purple fetish recently for reasons I don't fully understand.

ANYHOW. On to the pictures!

I had to add a waistband thing because my stitching was off on the seam between the dress and the bodice. oop.

DragonFyre-typical emo-glam shot. wid my kitty...

Actually this is to show off the gathering at the bust area, which I was really rather rediculously proud off, as i've never done that before and it came out very well.

So yay! My boyfriend (okay, and my other friends too) thinks its really hot, especially with those boots I'm wearing in the picture Cheesy

Its really comfy, I highly suggest you make one Smiley
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / SF Dragon Hoodie on: July 28, 2007 11:16:40 AM
So I have been on this big reconstructing thing, and I've had this t-shirt my parents got me in San Francisco and I loved the design but not the shirt. It had a huge red chinese dragon over a gray tribal design... on a boring white shirt.


However I didnt want to completely chop it up because, like i said, the design was killer. So. Mix in two plain red XL shirts from Michaels, and...

Oh yeah, and it has a hood Smiley
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Organization XIII Hoodie on: July 16, 2007 07:39:23 PM
So... Kingdom Hearts... is awesome and a half. I have previously been seen knitting a heartless sweater. Then one day, whilst browsing the wonderful world of DeviantArt, I came across this...


Immediately I thought MUST HAVE so I went out in search of a black hoodie. Turns out its really really difficult to find a plain black hoodie in the middle of the summer... and then this morning I was walking down the stairs of my apartment complex when... BEHOLD! A plain black hoodie in my size was laying on the ground! Being thrifty (and evil) I stole it, and as I type I am wearing my Organization XIII hoodie with pride. Geeky, geeky pride.


(why do I look terrified in this pic...)


I love it Smiley
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Mini-Manly Sweater on: December 29, 2006 09:08:40 AM
So... I said (like a month ago) that I'd knit sweaters for my two nephews as Christmas presents. Well, I knit one for the younger one (as seen... HERE! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=141169.0)... and by then it was Christmas and I had just finished the one sweater Sad So I didn't hold to my promise. And I felt bad.

HOWEVER. I bought a knitting machine recently. And... knitting machine = big things take short time. Observe! Here is me working on a sleeve:

See? Pretty fast. The entire sleeve took me about 40 minutes. Normally, hand-knitting it... probably about a week. Also note that at 5 minutes of handknitting, I'd have about.... 3 rows. If I was going fast.

As you can tell, its based off the Manly sweater from SnB, except... just the colors. I used actual pattern from http://www.knittingfool.com/, the most handy site for sweaters ever. Also, the manly sweater didn't come in a childrens' size 8. So. yes.

My cats also enjoy helping me Smiley

And finished!

This is the first thing I've made on a knitting machine (well, sortof. I made a scarf on it first Smiley haha) but its very handy. I am a person with a very short attention span, so I've several sweaters (and hell, even... like socks or arm warmers) that have been highly neglected and put away to never see the light of day again. Also, I have a thing for designing my own stuff and I know that this will help a lot.

Though I kinda feel cheap using it... Sad but whatevs. Its damned cute.
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / UGA Sweater and Uuber-Emo Hat on: December 22, 2006 11:03:02 PM
So! Im really terrible about posting things... I finish all this stuff and then I never post it  Undecided

First off: we have a sweater for my youngest nephew, Robert. No pictures of him actually *in* it yet, but thats because i just sent it off.

This marks the second sweater I have ever made. Im even surprised that I finished it... I knit it primarily while playing World of Warcraft... like during the griffen flights and that. Knit with the UGA logo. Go Dawgs!

And part two is a hat loosely adapted from this pattern: http://schrodinger212.blogspot.com/2005/12/double-hat.html
I call it the emo hat because... well it just looks so emo-y to me. Its a reversable hat so it has two sides, and I took emotastic pictures to play it up Smiley

Side One!

...i have a weird nose...

Side Two! (my favorite)

I dunno why i like this side better, but... i do.

Very easy knit, and very fun (and surprisingly fast.. .made in two nights). I hope to make these for my friends... but of course my track record thus far of "I'll make these for my friends' has been... not great. At any rate, try the pattern. Mine came out a little big, but I was using a size up in both needles and yarn.

Oh, and for the record... they were all knit in 7 needles with Lion Brand Wool-Ease. Can you say leftovers? woo.
