So, I have another craft in mind.

I've been thinking about making a blanket for the car. And considering my other half calls it the "Batmobile" and it is covered in batman paraphernalia, I thought I'd make her a batman blanket.

I'm not quite sure how to incorperate a picture into a blanket so i thought id make it by piecing many little granny sqares together.

I have a feeling that this project might take me a while. I REALLY havent been in the mood to crochet lately.
I actually haven't been in the mood to do much of anything....I wonder if there is something wrong with me...

anyway, this is pretty much what the blankets gonna look like when im done

yeah. and I think I might make others that are similar to that with different designs. it depends on how this turns out...

I am so bummed out.

It seems that in a matter of traveling between the car and my bedroom I have misplaced my hat

I have no clue how I managed to do that but apparently I did

I am notorious for losing things and it bugs me to death

I lose jackets, purses, scarves, earrings, name an accessory and I have probably lost it at some point in time

But, this time I don't feel so terrible

For two reasons:

Ine, I have a general idea of where it might be

and two, I can just make another one, no big deal.

God I cannot wait until I get my money, I am going to buy so much yarn I wont know what to do with it
I LOVE that thought!

Oh the things I am going to make
Granted, school comes first

-cough, cough-

I did it again!

Man, I am amazing!

Well, sort of.
I had a little help this time.

I finished my hat

Thats the side.
These pictures aren't that good so bear with me ( I hope I used the correct bear. I guess it could be b-a-r-e but that just sounds nekked you know?)
This is the front

This is me in the hat

I'm really liking these pictures
Maybe I'll myspace them :)
Please ignore the very sexy shower in the background.
Focus on the hat people. FOCUS!

Anyway, I got some help with this because even though I already had a baisc idea of how I wanted this hat
I found THIS VIDEO that basically took exactly what I wanted and told me which stitch to use and such. LOVE IT!

But, when I was doing the brim, it didnt come out right. So I slept on it and in the morning I figured it out.
I love that I can do that.
I feel like my brain works without me when I'm asleep'
I'd give you guys the pattern, but I dont really remember

BUT I am doing one in purple for my aunt, (Well, really two. One for me one for her) and I will definitely write the pattern for the brim for you  ^_^  (cuz you are AWESOME!)

Anyway, yeah thats it for now. Ran completely out of yarn so I'm screwed for a while. (Lame!)

Oh my gosh!!!!!!!
So I just realized something!!!!
I cannot find any crochet patterns for military-style hats!!!!!

I LOOOOVE military hats.
I used to have one. (my father was in the army) I'm not sure where it is now.
(I never wore it because I hated the color)
But I think I am going to make one

Valentine's Day

Well, once again, I find that my other half is just full of surprises
I was surprised today with the most beautiful arrangement of roses

Aren't they beautiful?
I also recieved a box of chocolates
Isn't that sweet?
I absolutely love valentine's day.
But for some reason, I'd rather spend it in Walmart, where I am surrounded by all the wonderful Valentines day things. I like to pretend.
I am still not really in the crocheting mood
I'm slowly working my way through this pattern.
I might pick it up later today. I'm not sure.

So, I  regret to inform you that I may not be posting up as many creations as I usually do lately, school has started and even though I don't really have much homework yet, I sort of haven't really been in the crocheting mood. Sad, I know. I'm slowly making an older sister for my little "bunny" twins, I have her head and her arms done. I guess I could work on her more today, but I don't want to move.

At the same time, my blog is my motivation because I don't want to be one of those bloggers who does AMAZING work (even though I'm not that amazing) then just stops updating. I HATE those people.

So, with that in mind, I will get up and press forward. Oh, and since I got my comments to work again if anyone wants to go through my archive and re-comment (you totally don't have to) that would be AMAZING! (I LOOOOVE comments)

Comment issue

Well, I hope that works. I was informed yesterday that my comments were not working, so I went and changed the setting to a pop-up window. I hope that helps. I like getting comments and stuff. Thank you lemonlemon-pie for letting me know!

Kay so im curious if this really works. Apparently i can blog from my phone..... I dont really have much to say today, except...... Yay im excited for school tomorrow!!!!!! Yep

Saturday, February 6, 2010

I'm so excited!

School is starting on Monday and you know what that means!!!!!!



I got just a plain, $20 purple mat

So, I didnt want to go pay $20 for a mat bag so I'm making one

It's going to be black and look sorta like this
But the pattern for the bottom is different than the pattern for this one

but yeah im excited

Friday, February 5, 2010

Oh my goodness!

That was super difficult, but I did it!
I created my own pattern for a baby in a bunny costume!
There are a few tweaks I have to fix but its finished!


I have to embroider the eyes and mouth but it has a little nose and hands and feet. It's practically sew-free (I only had to stitch on the hood)

God I'm happy about this!
I feel so accomplished and talented.
Granted no one else is going to get excited about this but whatever

<(^.^<)  <(^.^)> (>^.^)>

That's my happy dance!


I don't know what to do with the pattern!!!!!!!!

Isn't it the cutest thing?
It has the cutest characters in it

These are the ones I plan on actually making


And then I found


I know. Not as many as the first one but they are still super super cute right!!!!

So yeah, lots of ideas, and no yarn to do them with. oh well.

My List of Things I Want To Create! (Part 2)

Hello again!
Welcome to the continuation of...
My List of Things I Want To Create!
So were was I?
Oh, yes!
I remember now!
I was telling you how jealous I am over Owlishly's work and how I want to make some similar creations using the animals I showcased yesterday.

Well, Owlishly is a very talented crocheter. And she has created the CUTEST children in costumes.
Granted, she does sell the patterns at her etsy shop, but I of course, do not have the means of buying them, so I am forced to come up with creations of my own.

Then, I happened to stumble upon the most amazing creation by Butterfly2405

Hello Kitty in a panda suit!
I LOVE pandas and penguins and I just fell in love with this.
So I looked around online and guess what I found?
Little key caps with Hello Kitty in animal suits! 

There's a monkey,

 A bunny,

 A frog, 

Then there are the plushies,

A sheep,

 A cow,


And, a keychain

 An elephant.

I'm sure theres more, but I am lazy and do not wish to continue looking.

But anyways, I am going to figure out how to make them on my own.
That way, if I decide to sell them, I wont feel bad
Then I was looking some more and found another one of my favorite things. Skelanimals!
I know! Exciting right?
So, I picked my favorite ones,

Chungkee the panda

Diego the bat

Foxy the fox

Jakk the rabbit

Kit the cat

Marcy the monkey

and last but totally not least, 
Pen the penguin

I just love, love, love them!
I have no clue how I will create them, but I shall try my best.
Hopefully you will hear more about them in the near future, along with the rest of the creations floating around in my little brain.
YAY!!! Anywho...that was the conclusion to 
My List of Things I Want to Create!
I hope you enjoyed it!

Happy Crocheting!

My List of Things I Want To Create! (Part 1)
