1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: He's Perry, Perry the Platypus on: October 10, 2010 09:42:00 PM
Oh No! Perry the Platypus! (insert German accented evil scientist voice) This is so awesome, Phineas and Ferb is my favorite cartoon ever! I am totally thinking how awesome it would be to make a Doofenshmirtz. Of course Perry will need a hat for Doofenshmirtz to recognize him!
2  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: Do you have a spinning blog? on: October 02, 2010 12:12:50 AM
This is my brand spanking new spinning blog: http://spinningjillie.blogspot.com. The title is a spin off of the "Spinning Jenny" but as this is not my sisters blog (whose name is Jenny) I changed the title to "Spinning Jillie".

This is so awesome but I don't think I would be able to sleep with that thing anywhere in my house. That was one of the scariest episodes, I really didn't want to watch the one in the new season that featured them as well but I did. I can't believe the base was a Barbie, crazy.
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Lets make the other runners jealous hat! (a long but extremely apt name) on: February 27, 2010 11:58:14 AM
Thanks for all the encouragment I have only ever free handed hats for myself before (and they were never this complicated). The only reason I can give that it turned out so well is that my brother is a perfectionist rocket scientist had each detail of the had planned out and many suggestions when we were having him try it on.

To make it I started at the top with a giant magic circle that had to be resized several time after putting all the dc in (the yarn in the magic circle was pulled as tight as it could so that it would stretch anymore any fall down). After I got the top fitted I started increasing occasionally ( I didn't have any sort of design I just increased when I fell like it). After I did the first three rows and had him try it on he decided that he didn't want it much longer in front but a lot longer in back so I felt like it was a good time to switch colors. I started the blue just in front of his ears and dc in a row. I think I decreased at the beginning and the end of each row to get the circle shape at the side. After about two rows of the blue I decreased intermediately in the next three rows (making sure to have the decreases on the ends also for shaping). Then to smooth it all out and make the front and back look cohesive I did one last row of dc all around the hat. I didn't make a patter so I can't give you that but I can tell you that if you are making for yourself or someone else to try it on after every one or two rows so you don't have to go frogging for half the hat.

This is really great for a first try I haven't made any corsets yet so I can't give you any advice but I plan one sometime ... eventually. You did really great on the grommets for the lacing.
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Lets make the other runners jealous hat! (a long but extremely apt name) on: February 26, 2010 09:54:09 PM
My brother is a runner, he has ran the San Fransisco Marathon 3 times, and when he was home at Christmas he declared that he wanted a custom hat to make the other runners jealous. He started going on and on about the expensive hats that wear for status. He specifically wanted a large hole in the top to let out steam and wanted it to cover his ears, he also wanted to make sure it would fall off when it was full of sweat (gross). I kept putting it off but since his wife went ahead and bought the yarn I felt obligated to finish it and I did, the night before he went back to California. He was pretty happy with it and excited to make the other runners jealous of his "custom made" hat.

This is awesome! My brother is an engineer at NASA and I will have to tell him to look at this.
8  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Doctor Who Empty Child gas mask mod on: October 10, 2009 07:30:49 PM
I love it! As soon as I saw the picture on the front page I knew that it was from that episode. It also majorly freaked me out.
9  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Re: Sailor Jupiter costume (with basic how-to) on: June 23, 2009 01:23:09 AM
Jupiter was always my favorite when I was younger. I think because she kicked a lot of butt and didn't take any crap from anybody. I was thinking of maybe doing a Jupiter costume at a con I plan on going to in the future.
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Beautiful Blue and Green Mesh Bag on: March 11, 2009 06:30:24 PM
I got a gift certificate for the local yarn store at Christmas and after a while I finally decided on some green yarn. If you look at my past projects I made a similar bag but this is a little more finished and I like the look better. I lined the bag with a dark blue silky fabric that I found in my sisters fabric stash (she hasn't lived with us for three years). I also got the button at the yarn store it reminded my kind of like tree bark. They had buttons that were made out of wood but they were really expensive. The yarn has slight variations in it and when I first looked at it I thought of a forest, hence the tree bark button. I am really happy with how it turned out, after I made the mesh part it took a really long time for me to start on the lining because I don't sew that well.
