Tomorrow is Father’s Day, so I made my Dad a little gift: the ghosts Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde from Pac-Man. Check the Gallery to see pics!
They say the eyes are the window to the soul…
After completing the Pod Pals Beta 1.0, I took a break in my crochet plans to try something else.
The result was Timothy the T-Rex!
Some people like to collect things, particularly when those things are items which represent something they are passionate about. When it comes to EVE Online, the MMO I play, the playerbase gobbles up official merchandise from CCP whenever it can. Many of the in-game corporations, alliances, and coalitions have also made buttons, armbands, patches, coins, medals, pens, mousepads, mugs, and all manner of other kind of promotional materials for their members. Then there are the individual players who frequently make their talents available to create fabulous artwork, videos, logos, tshirts, posters, paintings, sketches, and more by request.
Welp. Here I am, tentatively throwing my hat into that ring.
Another crochet project has been added to the Gallery! This one is a very cute elephant. After a couple more projects I think I will split the crochet work into its own Amigurumi section.
I’m really enjoying crochet. It’s a wonderful pastime and fairly relaxing, something I can do when I’m not really interested in playing games or otherwise working on my computer. Good activity to keep my hands busy while I’m watching a movie!
My next project will be a doll. A very particular doll. :D
My first crochet project is done! Check out the Gallery for pictures. :D
As a new crocheter, it was suggested to me to join Ravelry, a free community website.
Ravelry is a place for knitters, crocheters, designers, spinners, weavers and dyers to keep track of their yarn, tools, project and pattern information, and look to others for ideas and inspiration.
The website requires an account to get into so when I first visited I didn’t actually sign up right away. The front page, while colorful, didn’t immediately grab my attention much. I thought, Meh, maybe I’ll bother with it later.
Well, I’m glad I did!
Winter finally arrived in Calgary, just in time for Christmas! We had snow for the holiday and the chilly weather seems to be sticking around, more or less.
For whatever reason, when winter hits I tend to get into the mood to make stuff. The cold, howling wind, and blizzards just seem like the right time to curl up on the sofa and get crafty! This winter seems to be heading in that direction, thanks in no small part to my mother.
I love nature and am a proud Canadian, born and raised in Calgary. Cyan is my favorite color. Steak, nachos, and jumbo sour keys FTW. I enjoy gaming, writing, crochet, and photography. Drawing? Coding websites? Editing? Camping? Fishing? Reading? Aquariums? Yes, those too. I probably have too many hobbies.
