Something I really do need to make more of in the near future as they look stunning when finished, and were an absolute pleasure to make =] just plain crocheted earrings =]

Full Size Granny Bag

One of the very rare occasions that I have made something for myself!
Simply 2 big granny squares, lined with a cushion cover, with 2 smaller granny squares to make the flap, and then a knitted strap, which has of course ended up longer as it has stretched! 

MTG Inspired dice bags

The OH and I play magic the gathering (an awesome card game, google it!) 
Now, he does role play too (D&D mostly) and I thought about making some dice bags for his various dice, I mostly just used the MTG guild colours =]

Azorious - Blue/white (terrible camera)

 Boros - Red /White

 Dimir - Black /Blue

 Golgari - Black / Green

 Gruul - Red/Green

 Izzet - Red/Blue

 Orzhov - Black/White

 Rakdos - Red/Black

 Selesnya - White/Green (terrible camera)

 Simic - Green/Blue

Knitted Squares Bag

Another magazine creation, just a plain knitted bag with squares, and an extra pocket on the front =] 

Storage Baskets

Originally meant as a bangle basket, these ended up as just general storage =]

Patch the Dog

Another LGC pattern, the same as the Amiguranimals actually, this one is the dog

 Made even cuter with the little patch on his eye too!

Little Aliens

Oh now these are another magazine based creation, just little aliens.

One has 3 legs
One just has 2 very lanky I-Cord legs

The third is a little ball

And the last one is one I made myself with 2 legs

"Raining Cats & Dogs"

Another magazine pattern, I do believe adorable friends to knit and crochet (or similar) with a small cat face, plain knit with a crochet and embroidered face =]

Monsters Inc's Fungus

Another "oooh I wonder" moment, while watching Monsters Inc I could not help but notice what simple shapes Fungus is made up of. I am looking forward to making other, similar critters =]

Bunny's Mittens

My OH spends a lot of time outdoors, but never wraps up warm! These mittens are a start....

Shelldon the Psychashellic Turtle

Another LGC pattern that was a huge success, I made this one for my OH

Super Mario Luma

Another boredom moment, simply a Luma =]


Like everyone that spends far too long on the internet, I encountered this little cartoon called catface, basically a Polish (hard to tell from the accent, but I think...) cat, with an oversized head that helps him float through the air with an unnaturally small body, as soon as I uploaded the picture of the one I made for my OH, someone ordered one! I was so excited! Hers is the blue one =]

Lanky Custom Creature

Aaaah this was a pleasure and a chore to make.
A friend of mine sent me a message just asking me to make her a creature, long and lanky, cuddle-able, striped, and most importantly, symmetrical!! She also wanted a cat face, and this is the result.

Cute little baby dress

This was a stroke of GENIUS on my part if I do say so myself! Started off with some granny squares with the intention of making a hairband, but then I thought, if I add some shells to one side, I could make a very pretty little dress (and I have considered making a bigger version for myself as well)
This is what I got....

My first chunky mitts

Another LGC pattern, and my first attempt at chunky mitts, I'd never really given chunky wool that much of a chance, but now I have, I am hooked!

Little Owl

Another LionBrand pattern, although I did change the colours it suggested for me to something a bit less bright, with safety eyes and stuffed with phoenix stuffing, (same as all my amigurumi) this little guy took about 2 hours to make in between checking and double checking the pattern!

Little Rectangle Critters

This was a pattern I found on ravelry, although I cannot for the life of me remember the designer name! >.< 
 This was supposed to be a mouse, it hasn't quite worked the way I wanted it to though...
However, this little bunny is ALL levels of cute!

Little Life Jim (alien face)

This little creature was created from boredom more than anything really, I had a small amount of 2 colours left and it was another "oooh, I wonder,....." moment.

With buttons for eyes, and crocheted hair, as well as a swiss darned mouth, he is actually quite cute for an inspired moment!

My first cardigan

Another LGC pattern that I changed, I actually made 2 of these, but the second one went horribly horribly wrong! I cut the ends too short and they unfastened, making the SC edge almost impossible as the rows kept unravelling while I crocheted over them! 4 days wasted and frustrated!! However, this is the first one that I made successfully!
After completing the cardigan itself, adding pretty red buttons, I added a little red pocket with a "lazy daisy" stitch over the top.

This is the stripe sequence, and a shot of the collar, I was so proud of this!

My first attempt at baby jumpers

I got the pattern from LGC, but I heavily modified it to make it my own, instead of K,P, K,K, P rows, I changed it so it became a basic stockinette pattern, I made one plain white, and one with light (almost neon) green finishing, fastened with buttons.
It was tricky at first getting the sleeves right, and the green jumper has slightly wider sleeves, something I might stick with when making later ones, as it does look to fit better than before, amazing considering I only added maybe 4 stitches to it!
