Hey all. Just a small update. Made this recently, thought Id share. Made a ton of bows too, I’ll upload those soon. Got a MUN tomorrow, and no matter how easy it might have seemed to me before, if I dont win it, thats me swallowing my words in a haze of¬†embarrassment. So wish me luck!

Also, the lovely model is my sister. ^_^

The first picture you see? My dinner, which started out as something completely different. The recipe called for basil leaves (which I didn’t have on hand) and a couple of other things. So I adapted the recipe and ended up making this. It’s quite good actually. Added a shredded slice of mozzarella cheese to the thick tomato sauce, and oh the flavors, how they exploded in my mouth. Anyone interested in the recipe? As for the second and third picture — remember I wanted to start a new project? Well this is what I ended up making. Its not completely done yet — a bit of the fringe on the other side is left, as well as attaching the buttons. Laziness gets to me. *sigh* The inspiration I got for this is from anthropology. This is looks nothing like the huge brown cowl but I am still very happy with what I ended up with. ūüôā

Update on 12/12/12!

Hey all! Its winters here and, as always, I get swept away with this season. The sheer joy of writing up blog posts with your headphones plugged in, knowing you’re adding your voice to the millions already on the internet, your feet warm in a cute pair of crocheted slippers and a mug of hot cocoa sitting within reach accompanied by the¬†softest, most scrumptious chocolate cupcake you’ve ever had…yeah, thats something I always look forward to.

So regarding crocheting in general, I’ve taken up tunisian crochet and find it¬†irresistible. The knit-like stitches are so easy to do, and they work up really fast too. I turn into a¬†memorized¬†robot when I’m at it. I’m actually working on a little project at the moment. Give it a week and I’ll be sure to post pictures. ūüėČ Unless I’m too lazy. Which is probably whats going to happen.

Another project thats¬†currently¬†on haitus right now is this net-like sweater thingy I’m working on. Thinking about making the sleeves those poofy-like things that are so in right now. The netting on those would be a bit more tighter, and smaller. The main body is going on about chains of six. I’ll hopefully post pictures of that too.

 

My interest in tunisian stemmed from learning how to make crochet cables. Post stitches. Sigh. How did I ever live without knowing them? Still, I can only make straight cables. No match for those windy, twisty ones.

Does anybody watch Greys Anatomy? I started about a month ago and got done with eight seasons, all the episodes of the ninth, and a new favorite show. Also a ton of new favorite songs. I think it was a mistake to kill of the characters they did. They were vital to the show. And their second mistake, I think, was to continue the series. The ninth one seems to be quite a let down so far. Its also sad how everyone has gotten over the deaths so fast.

ANYWAY. Back to crochet. I’m bored with my current projects (the aforementioned ones), so I think I’ll start something new. But what? Any ideas?
