Finger Ninjas

11 Jan

I’ve been neglecting you, sorry!

I’ll post the holiday presents I made as soon as I find my camera again.

In the meantime, here’s a quick project I made for a friend. He saw this picture of ninja finger puppets on Deviant Art, and it looked easy, so I got to it! Of course, I ended up ripping it out & starting over far more times than I thought I would, just like every other project ever, lol.

Finger Ninjas


I wrote down the pattern in case other people wanted them – and I know you do, so here it is!

I used Red Heart Super Saver, which is a worsted weight (4 – medium on the standard yarn weight chart), and a size F (3.75 mm) hook.
Instructions are in US terms.

Start w/magic circle, chain 2, 9 dc (double crochet) in circle. Join w/a slip st into 2nd beginning chain.

Next round: Ch 2, dc in ea of next 7 dc, ch 2, join w/a sl st into 2nd beg ch.

Next round: Ch 2, Dc in ea of next 7 dc, 2 dc in ch 2 space, join w/ sl st in 2nd beg ch, finish off.
Go forth now and attack, my minions!


My first custom plushie!

30 Aug

GUYS! I forgot to tell you – Bonta Kun arrived in his new home! It’s my first amigurumi that I’ve done without a pattern, just started with the head and started shaping as I went (I started with the bear head, the hat was made and sewn on later). I’m ridiculously happy with it – and fortunately, so is she!

I’ve got more planned, but now I have to get back to knitting up Jayne hats for the Can’t Stop the Serenity charity event here in AZ.

Crocheting Muffins

23 Jun


Seriously guys, I’m almost 50 (this October), and I started embroidering when I was in grade school. I read the instructions in the kits and books diligently, but the hand-drawn black-and-white illustrations just didn’t help me in the slightest.

But now, we have the interntez, and this wonderful lady and her blog!

Stitch School: french knot

I don’t know if any of you watch “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic”, but trust me in that if you’re making a Derpy Hooves hat for someone, it must have a muffin. Following the look of some of the muffins in fan art, I made this:


OK, sorry, it’s a crappy webcam photo … when I finish the hat, maybe I’ll remember to post a pic of both!   😀

Cupcake Hats

6 Apr

I’ve been working diligently trying to get some Lego brick pincushions presentable enough to post, but it’s still tax season, and we’ve hit the “Oh crap, it’s April, I should get that stuff done” endgame, lol.

Then I remembered … my non-Facebook fans have not seen my cupcake hats!!!! (yes, the extra exclamation points are necessary)


So there’s my finished pieces, my son Vincent out-cunning Jayne (it’s a “Firefly” thing), and me in my first non-sprinkled prototype. And yes, they’re in my Etsy store! So far just finished hats, but I’ll be working on formatting the pattern soon.

Now to queue up my Hulu+ queue and get to crocheting some Legos!
