I’m very happy I’ve finally finished another pattern, it’s been way too long. Let’s hope the next one won’t have as much of a long wait before it sees the light of day!
I recently bought a set of Cthulhu Dice and was very excited to receive the green and yellow version (as it said it would ship out a random colour and I really wanted something green), but since the game doesn’t come with any box or bag but simply in a blister pack, I immediately set to task to crochet a Cthulhu shaped bag to hold my game!
It turned out just big enough to hold all items, but I’ll try to make one slightly bigger so there’s a bit of wiggle room and I’m planning to make it a purchasable pattern in my online shop, so keep your eyes peeled!
Took about a month to finish this little guy, but he’s finally done! He’s just a prototype, but I’m quite happy with the result.
I’ll write out the pattern soon and then work one with the actual yarn intended for Niffler, which is a fuzzy towelling yarn to make him cuddlier.
He’ll hopefully become my first new pattern in a looooong time!
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’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!
Over the weekend I finally finished my dragon scale cloak! Pictures will follow eventually, it’s a huge beast and hard to photograph.
However, I also finished these beauties:
I used the same yarn that I used for the cloak (Bernat Mosaic in Envy, unfortunately discontinued) and may release patterns for both eventually. Definitely planning to, but that cloak is such a huge project!
Getting back to creating crochet items feels really good though. I hope to make more time for it next year!
So, I finally got to take Vera out for a cosplay appearance when I went to NineWorlds GeekFest recently. By the way, if you have any way of making it happen, GO TO NINEWORLDS NEXT YEAR! Best convention ever, this was my second year attending and it was brilliant.
But, this post is about Vera/Jayne, so here we go.
Vera was very well received and I got a lot of compliments for her crochet goodness. Unfortunately I was too busy having way too much fun to take any decent pictures at the convention, but here are a few others have taken:
If you happen to have any photos of yourself or me holding Vera, do send them my way so I can add them here!
