1  Fanny Aubergine in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by AmigurumiMan on: November 26, 2006 11:34:04 AM
Introducing Fanny Aubergine, wild eggplant from the wrong side of the tracks.  A bad role model for little sprouts everywhere, she has been seen with Axel Asparagus and other members of the Crisper Gang.

2  Autumn Granny Hex Slippers in Crochet: Completed Projects by AmigurumiMan on: November 18, 2006 12:48:54 PM
My first slippers, made for my 5-year-old.  I found the pattern at http://members.aol.com/_ht_a/lffunt/hexslip.htm.  They were pretty quick, the pattern is basically 3 granny hexes, sewn together and attached to a rectangular sole.  I didn't really like the instructions for the soles, so I made up something different, but the shape is the same. If i do them again, i'll make a sole with more a foot shape to it, though.

These slippers feel very Thanksgivingish to me.  The pattern reminds me of turkeys and has a vaguely Native American vibe, and i love that harvest-hued variegated yarn.

3  So not ironic: crocus cluster doily in Crochet: Completed Projects by AmigurumiMan on: July 02, 2006 01:41:14 PM
First doily!

Pattern found at Celt's Vintage Crochet, http://www.angelfire.com/folk/celtwich/CrocusCluster.html

I did it in green so I wouldn't feel quite so Victorian while working on it, but now I wish I'd done it in white.  Anyway, I don't see us ever actually using doilies as doilies in this house, so I might frame it and hang it up, in which case green is good.

It's somewhat lumpy, and I couldn't quite understand how I was supposed to finish the clusters in the last round so they are very uneven, but it was fun to do.  Doilies rock, dudes!

4  DS Chrysalis case in Crochet: Completed Projects by AmigurumiMan on: March 18, 2006 09:09:53 AM
I made a case for my beloved DS. Did a wave pattern which turned out a lot like a chrysalis, which is neat since the DS is sort of a butterfly.

This shows the stitches a bit better and doesn't look quite so pink (the case is not pink, honest!)

A butterfly emerges!

This whole thing was a lot trickier than I thought it was going to be, but I like how it came out.

5  More Fantasy Fingerlings now with extra yarn power! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by AmigurumiMan on: March 12, 2006 07:44:50 AM
The latest fantasy finger puppets - Teeny the Elf, Sir Back-Loops-Only, and One of Many.  Teeny is just an attempt to make a generic small figure as a basis for other characters.  Sir Back-Loops-Only is my favourite from this group, because of how the armour came out - it is indeed back loops only, which I thought gave it a nice texture, kind of like scale mail.

One of Many is a grasshopper man, in case you can't tell.  One has come representing Galactic Swarm 15339 to help us Earthlings with our little human problem.  I was actually setting out to make a witch, but the way I shaped the head just said "Grasshopper" to me, so I gave him four arms/wings and went with that.

This picture shows the back loops "scale mail" a bit better.

Little guys seem to relate very well to these pocket-sized critters.  My daughter makes up the most insane stories for them.  If you know any four-year-old girls, you can imagine the sort of soap opera-styled fairy tale lunacy you can get with a bunch of these.  I'm still trying to make a princess - the hair is tricky.

6  Pithy the Fool and Friends in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by AmigurumiMan on: February 21, 2006 09:19:27 PM
I started making fantasy finger puppets as a present for some friends. I named these Pithy the Fool, Palindrome the Elf and An'Gora She-Thing. Pithy is my favourite so far, as he has the best hat.  I thought the hat would be impossible to make, but it turned out to be pretty easy. Hardest part was figuring out how to get the beads where I wanted them.

(Palindrome was going to be a kind of Legolas wannabe crossed with one of the Minish from the Zelda game, but turned into something more like a Santa elf. He's very proud of his star, so don't make fun of it.)

Sorry the images are so bright - you can't really see much of Palindrome the Elf. I tried different backgrounds and flash settings, but couldn't get my camera to focus properly without flash.  Crochet is easy - using my digital camera properly is way beyond me!

Pithy the Fool!

Left to right - Palindrome, Pithy and An'Gora

The trio without flash. Unfortunately, without focus too.

Next up, Princess Mayberry, Croon the Witch, and probably some kind of Orc.

7  Jack "Skully"ngton in Crochet: Completed Projects by AmigurumiMan on: November 26, 2005 09:25:54 AM
My first attempt at making a hat with an image on it - I had some trouble figuring out how to do the color changes properly.  It came out a little lumpy, so if you don't quite recognise it (Jack Skellington, from the Nightmare Before Christmas) I won't be too offended.  But I kinda like it anyway.


I did the last row with decreases every 10 stitches so that the end wouldn't roll up.  If anybody has a better idea about how to finish skullcaps, please let me know.  I had thought about doing a short rib with back post / front post DCs, but I don't know if I like ribs on a skully.
