Foxlet, I've started reading Neverwhere while I work on a commission (because ebooks are easier to read while crocheting due to not having to hold then), and it's awesome. This made me giggle so much:

3  Re: Suede yarn bag, finally completed two years after buying the materials! in Crochet: Completed Projects by RonnieCat on: August 30, 2008 07:40:09 AM
Nope, didn't line it. My mum thinks I should but I like it the way it is. It does stretch a bit with my books in it, but not too badly.

Here's my duct tape dummy modeling it with my astronomy textbook inside (sorry about the shirt, it's from my swim team ages ago, I'm about to start playing with some fabric I have and I want to protect it from the duct tape)

I really apologise for my messy room -.-

4  Suede yarn bag, finally completed two years after buying the materials! in Crochet: Completed Projects by RonnieCat on: August 30, 2008 05:22:05 AM
I'm quite proud of how this turned out. It's in Lion brand Suede, the lower half is Olive and the upper half is Sage, one skein of each, worked up with a J hook (the recommendation on the label). The handles were on clearance at Joann's in Dec '06 Tongue

It appears my cat wanted to get in on the photo shoot! It is her house after all.

Let me know what you think! Smiley It's going to be used to carry my books around for school. I reinforced where I crocheted the handles on to make sure it'd hold up.

You really should read Momo! It's by Michael Ende too, and I loved it almost as much as The Neverending Story!

Ah, Calcifer plushie! ::is so jealous::


You can't see it, but he has a little mouth too

6  If you cut me.... in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by RonnieCat on: August 27, 2008 04:35:10 AM
I'm not positive this is arty enough to go in here, but I couldn't figure out where else to put it.

I made this a long time back on a sudden burst of inspiration. The letter of BLEED? are cut around with an exacto knife, leaving enough to hold them in place, and red paint tempera paint thinned with water squeezed through from the back. The phrase is from Shakespeare - The Merchant Of Venice.

Here's what the three patterns look like, by the way. Ignore the yarn Tongue

My yarn stash came down off my top bunk so I could rummage through it for materials the other day, so I decided to take a picture. It's still taking up most of my bed and not leaving me much room to sleep in.

My bed

My duct tape dress form that I think isn't the same size as me anymore tied to the bedpost with the sash of my bathrobe (and a belt I crocheted now being used with the bathrobe) Tongue

Oh, and my 20 or so yarns of gorgeous black and red plaid on the foot of my bed <3


Oh, and way back in this thread I posted about buying some handles and yarn to make a purse? Two years ago. I just started working on that tonight. That yarn has been set aside in a bag for TWO YEARS.

I have problems Sad

9  Dr Horrible Goggles in Crochet: Completed Projects by RonnieCat on: August 22, 2008 11:58:56 PM
After reading http://crochetme.com/blog/calling-geek-crafters-we-want-interview-joss-whedon-and-we-need-your-help , and seeing the Joss Whedon CAL thread, I decided I just had to make a pair of Dr Horrible goggles, like he wears in the picture below.

They're not very accurate, and there's a lot of things I'd like to fix if I make another pair (I am SUCH a perfectionist, you would not believe how many times I frogged and redid bits until I went AUGH I am sick of this it can stay as it is.)

Without further ado!

Laid on the desk

Held up in the air (sorry about my messy desk)

And an action shot!

10  Help! How should I connect these parts? in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by RonnieCat on: August 22, 2008 08:43:58 PM
I'm trying to crochet a pair of goggles like these from Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog:

I have parts, and this is what they should go together as:

My problem is trying to get this




Attached to this




Anyone have any suggestions? I've tried sc'ing it on, and slst'ing it on, and neither looked right (I was working in the brown trying this because the fuzzy black yarn is an absolute b*tch to work with, I hate it with a passion but it is somehow the only black in my enormous stash). I can't find a tapestry needle in my crochet things, but if I keep having troubles I may go steal one and some thread from my mum and just whipstitch it together :/
