My Little Monster

little monster

Here is my last Halloween project.  This is my little monster made from a pattern I purchased from Emily Millers Emporium on Etsy.  It was actually  for a ghost but she suggested getting creative and making a monster from the same basic shape. So I did. Didn’t get time to make a ghost.  I have started on some things for Christmas(not all crochet) but nothing ready to post here.  Was bound and determined to finish what little I was doing for Halloween before jumping into Christmas.  Now  I can go for it!

Candy Corn Man

Sorry, no Christmas yet.  Hope that’s Ok.  But I’m working on some things. Here’s my little Candy Corn Man courtesy of  a pattern I got from Stormycrochet at Etsy. I thought he was so cute so I made one of him for my kids also.  Since they are fairly recent homeowners they haven’t had time to accumulate  yet.  I just am helping them along.  I am enjoying the little amigurumis because they give some quick gratification of finishing something.  I have a little monster that I’m just finishing up so I’ll get a pic posted here for you to see.  Then on to Christmas.

Okay, one last amigurumi out of me before we move on to holiday gifts! I made Happy Poo, and it’s pretty much the cutest thing I’ve ever crocheted. I love it!

Here’s my little happy poo:

I did it!

I finally know the excitement that everyone feels as they finish their first amigurumi! Thanks to encouragement and inspiration from the ladies here, i finished the “Scott the Bear” free pattern from the Lion Brand website. I am waiting on my friend’s camera cord to post a picture, and in the meantime I am working away on the free bunny pattern from the same site. Working in the round/using a stitch marker isn’t scary after all! 🙂

I finally finished!

Okay, with major help from Eve (and from somebody else who suggested using a stitch marker – thank you!), I finally finished my Basic Birds. I had to redo the first one I made about five times, but the second one went much more smoothly.

I am still in shock that I made something round…it makes me feel that I could go on and tackle bigger things!

Anyway, here’s the picture:

basic birdies

My husband named the one on the right Hector. We’re not sure what the pink one’s name is.

**One question for those who made Basic Bird — I haven’t attached the felt beaks yet. How did you attach them? Thanks!

Thanks for the help, Eve! You’re the best; I couldn’t have finished these without you. 🙂

Name My Dragon!


Okay, finished a dragon…the pic on the left shows the colors better, but I wanted to show off the wings too!

I added a little gold embroidery thread to his spiney bits, although not to the wings (couldn’t see it anyway)… I also omitted the ears, because they made him look like a demented aardvark. 🙂

Now he needs a name… ideas? Mine were all lame, like Draco or Mean Greenie or That Thing That Gave Me Carpal Tunnel.

My First Amigurumi

                  

Here’ a pic of my first amigurumi ever,  my punkin.  I’m not going to say much this time just want to get this posted. You can read more about my amigurumi adventure at my blog “Fabric and Yarn Stasher.”  As a first timer to Word Press and Flikr, this was a whole new experience. I just have settled in with my site at Blogger and am amazed at what I’ve learned to do. Never thought i could learn to blog, let alone post pictures. I really didn’t think I could learn to do this since I didn’t even know about URLs.  A BIG thanks goes to Eve for walking me through.

Frankenchicken

I finally got batteries in my camera to take this little guy’s picture.  I’ll admit that I don’t have much experience crocheting in the round….if you need a scarf, or squares, I’m you girl.  But for some reason, the times that I’ve done rounds, my projects end up leaning as if they are taller on one side than on the other.  Which is why my poor little chicken looks kinda crooked and lumpy.  But that’s okay, I still love him!  Has anyone else ever had the problem I have, and if so, what am I doing wrong?

For anyone who has yet to master the intricacies (not really – it’s very simple!) of the magic ring, I’ve just put together a new photo tutorial to demonstrate it for right- or left- handers.

The magic ring is a great way to avoid the annoying hole in the centre of pieces worked in the round! See below for an example:

You can start all your amis this way and it will give you a much nicer finish.

I’ve linked to it in our sidebar. Hope this will be useful to some of you 🙂

I’m committing!

Well, I’m Kate and if there’s one thing there is to know about me, it’s that I’m intimidated by working in rounds and marking stitches. Everyone’s work and pictures have been so great that I’m ready to make the leap. I want to do the bunny from Lion Yarn but I’m going to start with the Basic Bird since everyone agrees it’s a good beginner pattern. Okay, now that I’ve got some accountability out there, my next post should be an FO photo! 🙂

Thank you again Crochet Along! And cannot wait to see all the amigurumi creations!

I swear I will get the hang of this posting thing 🙂

I chose this pattern because I wanted to try to crochet something with more than one color.

I am very pleased with the way it turned out.
