Rainbow Arms

I finished my fingerless gloves to match my rainbow scale scarf.

I absolutely love this yarn, I still have a few balls of it left so am thinking about what kind of rainbowy goodness to make next!

Well, that’s more like it…

Rocket has arms! Two of them!

Now on to the tail. I hope I can make him stand up and balance with his tail, but as he’s getting quite heavy, I’m not super hopeful. We shall see!

I need an arm. Honestly, I really need it!

I’ve finally managed to work some more on perhaps my largest project to date, the wonderful Rocket! He has both legs and one arm now.

He’s coming along so well. I completely removed both his arms and did them all over again because his feet and legs turned out so much better than the first version of his arms and I needed them to match.
I think this is one of the most important things when working on a new freehand work, you have to be willing to completely unravel and start over again.

I’m hopeful I’ll be able to finish the second arm and start on his jumpsuit before Halloween!

New project!

So, I just started a new project. It all started with just picking the right colours and ordering the yarn.
And then it descended all into chaos!

This is what it looks like when I work on a new pattern!

Trigger Happy!

Got the trigger and huge magazine for Vera finished! This thing is starting to come together. Lots of detail work still to do, but the largest chunk is done.

The rest of the gun has so many small details though, it’s going to take a while to finish. Very happy with the progress so far though. 😀

Vera is coming along

It’s very rudimentary, but I have the basic body finished, everything else will be built on top of this. Unfortunately I ran out of black yarn, so I’ll have to work on the decorative bits and piecew until I stock up again.

I’m using upholstery foam for the filling for the first time, I’m hoping it’s more stable than polyfil and holds the shape better. It seems to be working well so far, we’ll see how it goes once all the bits and pieces are added.

Getting nosey with my crochet

Started working on my Miss Piggy nose! It’s all one piece with lots of shaping and seems to be working out great so far.

If it keeps going this well, I may finish the whole piece today and can start working on crocheting Vera tomorrow! 😀

The Mighty Thor

Finished another amigurumi! This time it’s the mighty Thor. 😀

My mom asked me to make her a Thor doll to cuddle, so I did.

I am now officially settled in London, UK. The move went well, still waiting for a few boxes to come from Canada (especially the ones that have my yarn in them) but I’m already feeling quite at home here. Having lots of fun, meeting new awesome people and enjoying the city tremendously.

Hope you’re having as great a time as I am!

Love and chocolate for all!

Free Friday – Crochet Pattern

Hey my lovelies! Here I am again with another Friday pattern feature. These patterns are not created by me, but by other very skilled and creative crochet artists who offer some of their hard work for free use!

How about a beautiful, summery flower necklace pattern today?

This pattern can be worked with crochet thread or yarn in any colors you desire. You could also use the flowers on a hair clip, bracelet or as an applique on clothes, bags, shoes, so many possibilities!

Keep on hooking!
