1  Cernunnos in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Sorcha Griannon on: March 07, 2011 11:08:39 PM
So, a friend of mine wanted a pagan god figure crocheted by myself.  We looked online, however, the only one we could find, and ultimately decided on, was pretty sad looking.  Well, I got 85% through making it, and decided that it really was only suited to be the dog's toy.  Again, I looked around, and couldn't find anything...

So I found a pattern for a head and body (mainly because I was being lazy, lol), and went from there.  This is based on the Gundestup Calderon.  My friend was very happy with it.  I plan on making another one, but will make up my own head/body pattern to closer match the Calderon.

Progress notes:

Major changes made to turn the little devil into Cernunnos (as depicted on the Gundestrup Cauldron).

Head: per pattern.

Body: Different color than head, so that he looks to be wearing clothing. Done per pattern, stitch-wise.

Arms: Did not do the arms per pattern. Also, I started with skin color, and then changing to clothing color.

Legs: Not done per pattern, and made long enough to cross for the correct look.

The arms were attached, and then stitched at the elbows to give an upward bend.

The legs were attached and crossed as they are on the cauldron.

Here was the tough part. The antlers were difficult to get the right look. So after trial an error, I finally got it looking correct.

The face was embroidered as best I could, very simply.

I finished.  Unfortunately, since the baby shower came a month before I thought it would, I didn't finish it quite as I wanted.  I left the edges jagged, it's actually cute in person.  The mom loved this.

I figured I'd post my progress so far...

Between the 2 sick kids and the shawl I made for the MIL, I've not gotten far, obviously.  I'm thinking a couple more rows, then do the half blocks (I have to read the pattern again) around the edge.  I'm thinking around crib blanket size.  As much as I loved a few of my large baby blankets, they were too unwieldy to actually use while out and about.

Just an update on the blanket.  Row 3 is complete, and row 4 has been started.

I was doing this one complete block at a time, but I'm going to switch, doing all the purple first across, then the pink, then the black.  It might save a little frustration.Smiley

This is from my Ravelry project list, so it's worded oddly:)
Really? I was afraid to try this???

This is super simple, but man oh man, it looks difficult. The diamonds consist of 3 rows, and once you memorize the pattern (and that took all of 4-5 diamonds for me), its smooth sailing. I can do one block in about 15 minutes, but Ive been pretty lazy about working on this. I have till March till the baby is due (no, not mine, lol).
Now, originally I was going to do a round ripple with this yarn, but I really did not like how it was coming out, so I though I would try this one. If you look at the pattern, the lightest color should be on the top of the blocks, but I started with the purple, and it looks fine. I really like the way that the colors are coming together.
The mom that this is going to is a bit of a girlie-girl, but shes got a bit of a dark side, so the colors are perfect.

7  Neckwarmer in Crochet: Completed Projects by Sorcha Griannon on: September 14, 2008 10:44:29 AM
Based on http://minglingyarn.blogspot.com/2007/09/could-it-be-any-easier-neck-cozy.html with a few minor changes

Ok, I have a new job that I drive 45 minutes or so to and from work each day. And that drive includes going from 4200 feet above sea level down a mountain pass, and through what is essentially a severe wind tunnel. During the summer, its not too bad (as long as you dont overheat your vehicle by running the air while climbing the pass) since the average temp is somewhere in the high 90s through the 110s. The winter, however, can be pretty darn cold. I figured that I need to get warm clothing and accessories to wear on the commute so I wont have to turn the heat on in the car, thus saving gas.
This is a super simple pattern. I had made fingerless gloves last year out of this yarn, very warm, and had quite a bit left over. Not enough to actually make another set of gloves unfortunately, since mine got felted by accident in the washmy 3 year old couldnt even get them on, lol.
I did make a few modifications

    * I used only 1 strand of yarn
    * I repeated rows 6 through 11 for more width due to the narrowness resulting from using a single strand.
    * Because I added a repeat in the rows, I have 3 button holes buttons instead of 2.
    * I added 2 rows of sc, a row of ch3 & sc, and a row of 5scs on each ch3 at each end.
    * Lastly, I added a row of sc to the long edges to made a nice clean edge.

I might make one for my 3 year old, since I KNOW shes going to try to steal mine.Smiley

I had some time and knocked this one out in no time.  I like it, especially since I had no problems with confusing directions, lol.  It's a nice change from the Tiramisu Baby blanket for some god-forsaken reason I decided I want to make.  Good thing 2 friends just found out they were pregnant (now if they'll stop hinting they need to complete the "all things come in 3's"...I sooooo don't need to get pregnant).
