I just want to share this needle minder with you all:
*pokes head in* Hey, does anyone perchance have any recs for sock yarn for beginners? I'm getting tired of buying cheap socks from department stores that fall apart quickly and aren't all that comfortable, but I don't know enough about yarn to know which brands are likely to be scratchy. I've done crocheting before, but not knitting,
I have made another plushie and i love it a lot
My coworker was gifted these embroidery supplies, and had no use for them - but she'd seen me embroidering on break, so she gave them to me! :D
oh that's so many colors, congrats!!
finished crocheting all my holiday gifts!
a shawl for my best friend:
(i had to take a panorama to get the full thing in frame, my floorboards are not actually that wonky lol)
a skull shawl/scarf for my sister (actually a doily pattern, but i made it with yarn instead of thread):
and a stuffed elephant for my other best friend's baby:
man those shawls are so cool
and an elephant!! i love him.
The shawl I have been working on on and off for like three years is moving along! Every winter I go "okay, time to crochet!" without really thinking about it. It's cold out! Crochet time.
You can tell where I stopped modifying the pattern...
Soon it won't fit in its little basket.
So it took me about three hours, collectively, to completely redo this trilobite. I just didn't like the yellow on the first one.
The stitching isn't quite up to my usual standards of neatness, but I will live.
Done! The border I freehanded, so it's a bit wonky, but it has been pointed out to me that that is in line with the GG art style, so i am content.
just realised i never actually posted this when i finished it
Hopping back in here after a year long absence because I feel like you guys will enjoy this project.
Spoiler: Large pictures
Oh that's absolutely lovely! Kintsugi dress!
what the heck, that's gorgeous
Done! Except for this one idea that i think i might add to make it even better...
look at these crochet patterns!!
guess who got a DROP SPINDLEEEEEEEEE
I never could get into knitting due to the delayed gratification of it, but this is so satisfying. I hope I can stay interested in it over time because it's a lot of fun :D
I don’t know why I do this to myself
follow my mantra: it's only hubris if you fail
New hat! Celtic weave is the name of the stitch. I'm really enjoying it, despite this yarn's distinct jester vibes.
Although this stitch cannot be done in the round, so I have had to double back for each row, and the seam is very visible.
This picture is from way earlier, before I figured out how to turn it without making a lump. I have Figured it out by now, however! I will take more photos at a later time.
