1  cheshire hat! in Crochet: Completed Projects by superspork on: October 20, 2009 08:40:06 PM
the weather in georgia switched from mid-august to effing january in two days. there was no middle ground, thus i became a very cold college student. unacceptable. so i got to work... and this resulted:

what we have here is an ordinary striped hat yes?

consider that, on one side of the hat, the last row is dark purple...

and on the other side of the hat, the last row is... light purple?

i think my hat might be slightly mad!

oh, no, wait. i think it's just me that's slightly mad.
it's a spiral hat! and it was soooo frustrating. maybe there's an easier way to make it? I don't know, but I definitely liked my method because i got to show off by working with two different colors at the same time. I'd crochet almost a full circle in one color, then switch over to the other color to go around again. all double crochet until the ends. the ends for each color are 7 hdc, 7 sc, then... a stitch i don't know the name of, all the way to the point where the opposite color changed from a dc to hdc, which gave the hat a nice sturdy brim.

i've never been able to complete a hat before now, because counting out each side to make them all even drove me crazy, but since this was more freeform... I FINISHED IT! whahahahaha! so last but not least, an action shot in my frigid dorm room...  Undecided

2  helicopters to the rescue in Stenciling: Completed Projects by superspork on: September 14, 2009 03:00:26 PM
soo, i have this thing about burt's bees... i use it a few times, and then it mysteriously goes missing, disappears into thin air... brand new tubes, every single time. On one particular occasion, I discovered the location of my most recently displaced tube, and that location was the pocket of a hoodie that had gone through the washer and dryer, subsequently leaving dark patches of melted beeswax all over my clothes, including my new favorite shirt. Tragedy. Cry

However, it was salvaged this weekend! I found a construction paper helicopter stencil taped in the back of an old sketchbook, so it was used on the back of the shirt... I wanted it to look uneven and messy, so i used the stencil repeatedly, letting sections of paper rip, and allowing paint to smear underneath... then i did layers on a few... Behold!

3  i know my abc's! yeah! wooo! in Crochet: Completed Projects by superspork on: May 24, 2009 01:46:38 PM
In my 2-D Composition class last semester, we made alphabet books. I'm no sort of overachiever, but once I get an idea in my head, it's not going anywhere. We were supposed to find the letters in our surroundings, but i decided to make them instead, so i dumped out my basket of yarn and bag of scarves in my dorm room (to my roommate's dismay) and started forming the letters with them (on the floor, in the middle of the room). Then came the joyous photoshopping process that made me want to shoot myself in the foot, with the cropping, and the formatting and the layering and the UGH. Finally I got all my pages printed, folded, and glued into place. I could have been done there, but no. I painted the book covers purple, and wrapped white yarn all the way around them, and crocheted a case for the book. (I even made two books, for extra credit, and let my prof keep one.) they would be identical, but i only had one button, so the other has a chain of white woven through the middle of the case, tying together on the outside. didn't get pictures of it but i still have mine

fancy portfolio pics!

scarves for the pictures were made by me and my sister and my mom... one of them is knitted. bahaha. i felt sneaky doing that.

6  turquoise necklaces in Beads: Completed Projects by superspork on: July 15, 2008 12:33:30 PM
I know my sister lurks on craftster at work, but i think it'll be okay if she sees this...

A birthday present! what's inside?

a goddess! it still feels kind of heavy, though

turquoise and copper!

give my bedroom wall a big hand for its modelling talent!

actually, it's okay if she see all this, cause i was too excited to wait until her birthday to give this to her. I had to take it back to get pictures and finish one of them! but i'm super proud of them.

7  a blue and orange necklace in Beads: Completed Projects by superspork on: April 07, 2008 12:49:56 PM
i was inspired by a painting of a gold or yellow-orange something fish with this gorgeous aqua background that i would swear was posted in the more art, less craft area, but when i went back to find it, no such masterpiece seemed to exist. but here's the necklace it inspired...

modeled by my bedroom wall

close up of little fishy

i lucked out when i went with my mother to a bead show at the cobb galleria in atlanta and managed to find that little fish from a place called Elephant eye beads. i think he's the cutest, and i feel inclined to name him...

what do you think?

8  faces in graphite in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by superspork on: January 31, 2008 09:29:18 PM
i've been doing a bunch of portraits lately. i suppose i'm alright at it

my niece, as proudly displayed on my sister's fridge.

this is supposed to be Senses Fail's lead singer. i can't verify that it is, but he's at least a singer, yes?

lead singer for the vines. sadly, the pictures of this one were either blurry or too reflectly for decent details.

julia roberts was taken over by cannibal robot aliens. beware! (oldishness)

"I don't like being called a ________ because I don't feel like an adult yet. I'm in my late 20's." some of the words fell off and the ones that were in the envelope were cut and pasted in MS paint... in what i believed were the right spots...

I found the missing word to this one... laying on my living room floor... It was woman...

my friend doesn't have the money for a car, but even if she did, i don't think she'd ever drive because her mother never had a car to teach her how to drive... i think she'd be a really good driver though, because she'd appreciate the car she's driving and what it took to get it... good luck learning! if you wanna learn how to drive a stick, i'll be glad to teach!

i agree. i don't find brad pitt or angelina jolie good looking... at all... I don't see what everyone else finds so hot about them... therefore, your daughter is much cuter. Cheesy
