I'm back from an (unintentionally) long break from blogging. But, I come bearing a new pattern: a car! What have I been up to this past month-or-so? Well not too much, actually. It's been fairly relaxing and chill. I ended up being completely blind sided by an excellent series of books that I am now… Continue reading Back with a Car
I suppose this Totoro isn't that big, but, compared to what I usually crochet, he's huuge! I'm really liking his size. It's so much bigger than what I'm used to. He's got some serious 'heft'. I'm working from a sketch that I made from some screen captures from the movie. I tried to get the… Continue reading WIP: A Big Totoro
I really love the food network. There's something wonderful about watching other people (who are not me) cook yummy food that just does it for me. One of the things they sometimes do on the food network - after they've already made one recipe - is to use similar ingredients to make another totally different… Continue reading A Chick/Penguin Mashup
PENGUINS!!1!!1!!!! I love penguins. They're cute (for starters), they walk all silly on land AND they have ridiculously low drag in water. My fluid dynamics professor once said, 'If you want to lower the drag on a football, just throw it into the ocean and wait a million years until it evolves into a penguin'.… Continue reading Penguins!!
Nom ... Nom Nom ... Nom Nom Nom ... Pacman pattern time! It took me long enough to get my act together with this pattern (considering that this has been in the pipelines, almost done for a whiiile now), but now it's ready! Here it is, as a companion piece to the Pacman Ghost pattern:… Continue reading Pacman Pattern Time
Phew, I feel like I had a whirlwind week! But it was very enjoyable. I had a nice visit from my Mom and brother. Brother slept over a couple of nights so we had some nice, relaxing, just-the-brother-and-the-sister time. Me and Mom went to see Miss Saigon. (It was sooo good. Especially since I have… Continue reading Pile-Up of Updates!
So, I just loved the movie How to Train Your Dragon. I loved it so much, I had to see it twice. As soon as I saw it, though, I thought two things: 1) Toothless the dragon looks and acts EXACTLY like my cat, Boo. E.x.a.c.t.l.y. 2) I must crochet a Toothless. I have actually… Continue reading How to Crochet your Dragon
Well, there's no snow storm ... and there's not a complete polar bear yet, but there will be soon! This is the project I've been working on lately. But it's been going reeeeeally slow because I've had a bunch of other things on the go. Now that I've got the body the way I want… Continue reading A Polar Bear in a Snow Storm
Well, I finally wrote up the pattern to my hyper-emotional blorb which I now turned into a pacman ghost! Did you know that each pacman ghost had its own name? Crazy. Wikipedia told me that. Oh, and in case it's been a while since you've played Pacman, their colours are red, pink, blue and orange.… Continue reading Pacman Ghost Pattern!
Oh, the Happy Face Toy. What can I say? It has become infamous at our house. Happy Face Toy began when I decided to crochet a super quick toy for the kitties, hoping that they would play with it occasionally. Never could I ever have predicted the extent to which Happy Face Toy would be… Continue reading The Happy Face Toy
