I've been making things, but I've been sick for about a week now. My brain feels like it's going to pop out my eye sockets.

Things are progressing slowly, as they always seem to with me. Things to come.

Horrible Frog Creature

 I said I was here, so here I am. I've been very busy, sadly, which kind of slows the make-cute-things down. That being said, I've been making this Horrible Frog Creature for a little while. I made the head before I made the body, so it turned out a bit weird. In the future, I think I'm going to make the body before the head, unless I'm working from a pattern.

The main problem was I tried to do something I'd never tried before, kind of spur-of-the-moment. I tried chaining a few off the last row of a leg, then attaching it to the other leg, and continuing to make the legs and torso all one bit. The process can sort of be seen in this video, which is where I got the idea. Or rather, Nekoyumi showed me this video, I went "WHOA WHAT'S GOING ON THERE" and she explained it to me.

Anyway, I'm probably going to remove his head, make a new one, and save that one for something tinier. We'll see. I'll probably post the results. Also man this thing is lumpy.

Mint x Pink!

So I have been working with my mint coloured yarn a bunch today and yesterday. Maybe I will post photos of what I am working on soon.... with my super cool ghetto light tent I made with Violet's guest tutorial! I kind of failed at closing the gaps between the paper, though, so there are streaks of light I have to avoid when shooting...

Also, I only had normal 9"x11" printer paper, so it's kind of tiny... Oh well! It's better than nothing!

(10 minutes later...)

I lied!
I feel weird not posting pictures of anything.
Maybe that's because photos are my favourite parts of peoples' blogs?

Firstly, an itty bitty mint jellyfish.... I haven't put his face on yet. I also forgot to squish his head into a normal shape before photographing him. :/

Aaand a pink and mint bow! I have to say, this is one of my favourite colour combos. I can't decide what to do with it though. Brooch? Hair clip? And should I put sprinkles on it? Pom poms?
(Not gonna lie, my pom-pom addiction is definitely caused by looking at Twinkie Chan's adorable crochet stuff... I am definitely regretting not buying this huge bag of pastel pom poms I saw at Michael's a few months ago.)

My cat Luna is twitching in her sleep... She is so cute!


P.S. Really need to get on prettyin' this blog up, huh?
