My Little Knight

Niko is being a Knight for Halloween. I'm a bad mommy and woke him up a few minutes ago to try on the chainmail hood that I crocheted for him. LOL, as you can tell from the pics, he wasn't too happy about it. Now that I've made Timmy's R2 and Niko's chainmail hood (purchased the rest of the costume), I only have to make Adrian's vest and possibly chaps for his cowboy costume.

R2D2 & Dragon O'Lanterns

Tonight we did some pumpkin carving. We opted for R2D2 (big surprise, eh?) and a dragon. We had a template for the dragon, but freehanded the R2D2. :)

Elmo Doll

Hrm... not too pleased with how this one turned out. At least the recipient loved it. Next time I'll do the eyeballs up on top of the head.

R2D2 Costume!

I had planned on making my ds an r2d2 costume based off this one. I thought I had another week to go, but was sorely mistaken. I remembered Friday morning that he had a Halloween party THAT night at the school. So I pulled everything out and went to work on it. I didn't have a pattern, just the pic of that little boy and how his costume looked. I attempted to make a head piece like that one, but didn't have the right material so I dug out some yarn and started crocheting. Once again, I had no pattern, but looked at a pic of r2 and went from there. I finished his costume at 6pm. His party started at 6:30. He had tons of compliments on his costume, and as you can see, he was very happy with it. :)

Baby Boy Hat

I <3 this hat soooo much. Unfortunately, it was too small for the recipient. Isn't it beautiful, though? I just love it so much.

A New Calorimetry

I used some Lion Brand yarn for this calorimetry. Based loosely off the pattern I used for the last one. I morphed it a bit to fit more to my wants. :)

Woot! I got a new phone! :)

We upgraded our phones this week. That means I got to craft a new phone cozy to go with my new Palm Centro! :) Here it is! I'm currently using one of my fave pins in place of a button, but it will soon have a button there. :)

Jewelry - My First Time

Here's my first real time making jewelry. The crocheting was super hard to do. It is something I plan on doing more of so I can get better at it. Practice makes perfect! The tree of life pendant really disappointed me. I went out afterward and bought some better materials so I'm going to make another one of those as well.
