The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
I am going to seen a midnight showing of RHPS, and I am taking two vigirns =D
but... Seeing as I like to wait in the theater for awhile before the movie starts, I want something that can entertain me, but still look super awesome considering the envirment I am going to be around...
So.. I am a daring novice, and an advanced crocheter... So.. Go?

As promised, Red Blood Cell Pattern
As I promised, here is the pattern for my RBC amigurumi. This is the first pattern I've ever written, so if you see anything that needs corrected, please let me know so I can fix it. :-)Erythrocyte (Red Blood Cell) Amigurumi Pattern
By R. BlankenshipMaterials:
Worsted Weight Red Yarn (I used Red Heart for mine)
Little Googly Eyes
Fiber-fil or stuffing of your choiceAbbreviations:>/b>
CH = chain
SC = single crochet
ST = stitch
SC INC = single crochet increase (2 single crochet in one stitch)
SC DEC = single crochet decrease (combine 2 single crochet)
* = repeat from first * to second * all the way around
Mark first stitch in each row.
Instead of Ch 2 at the beginning, you can use the finger slip knot. Use whatever you are comfortable with.
Row 1: 5 sc in 2nd stitch from hook
Row 2: sc inc in each st = 10 stitches
Row 3: sc inc in each st = 20 stitches
Row 4: sc inc in each st = 40 stitches
Row 5: *sc inc in next st then 3 sc* = 48 stitches
Row 6 – 8: sc all the way around. Begin stuffing here. Make sure you put the stuffing around the edges, like a donut, because the center is a depression.
Row 9: sc dec in next st then 4 sc = 40 stitches
Row 10: sc dec in each st = 20 stitches
Row 11: sc dec in each st = 10 stitches
Row 12: sc dec in each st = 5 stitches
Cut a long tail and weave opening closed. Using yarn, sew a circle in the center of the toy to make the depression for the erythrocyte to hold oxygen and carbon dioxide molecules. Glue on googly eyes of your choice along the edge.
Now you’ll never be anemic with your back up red blood cell! Current Mood: cheerful

Science Geek Crocheting
I found this site (http://www.giantmicrobes.com/
) when I was looking for "amigurumi pattern octopus" on Google. I came upon a site where a person had their "want list" posted (I think it was on Flickr) which had an amigurumi shushi picture as well as the e. bola plush from GIANTmicrobes website and other stuff. I decided that I desperately wanted/ could NOT live without a plush Erythrocyte (a red blood cell, for those of you not in the medical field). I printed off the picture and thought, "That would be cute to do as an amigurumi... if I could figure out how to do that." Thus, the photo below, my first Erythrocyte Amigurumi. Yes, it IS a bi-concave disk (that means that it has to divots on each side of the cell so that it has a little depression in it to hold oxygen and carbon dioxide molecules) for anatomists and blood bank workers. The googly eyes just look so cute. I will never be anemic now as I have a nice, big red blood cell! Current Mood: artistic

I had been going to knit dragon scale gauntlets for my sister, but time is crunching and I need a project I can do a lot faster than that. I have 2 skeins of Checkheaton 6-ply (about 100 yds). I was checking out happy hooker's lady like lace gloves, and they're okay. But I wondered if any of you had anything you'd done that you liked more?
This is to go with a knitted scarf--the my so called scarf pattern

Yay, a FO!
I've been so busy that I haven't had to a chance to post my FO of the skullholders from S'n'B Happy hooker book. I love these pot holders and I plan to make my own one of these days. ( clicky here for picsCollapse ) Current Mood: bouncy

Searching for a pattern....
I picked up some Noro Sumile to make my mom a quick and easy scarf with from the Christmas Holidays. I was originally thinking One Skein Wonder from Happy Hooker (which I have on hand), but then I saw the Crocheted Cravat from the book One Skein Wonder. Now I am in love, and I think my mom would like it a lot more.
Buying a new book is not a possibility right now. I can kind of figure it out from the pictures, but I'm not sure, and I don't want to ruin the nice Noro. *shudder*
Do you know of any patterns that are freely available that are similar and I might like as well, or could cannabalize to create my own version? Thanks for all your help!

skull cable chart with knit and crochet, dog sweater.
i am so excited about this. i finished akuma's winter sweater- one of two. it's a very simple construction with a skull cable at the bottom of the back to make it interesting. i'm thrilled with how it came out, and it even inspired a more complex pattern involving the same skull cable chart for the next one! (he's still a puppy, and will outgrow this one. probably before the end of december.) i hope you guys like it too. i'm stoked. the body is knit and the sleeves and neck are crocheted with double post stitches.( puppy skull sweaterCollapse )
xposted around. :)

My First Doily
Anyone know what the hell you're supposed to do with these things? I know you just sit them on tables to use them as coasters but it seems like such a waste of nice lace. Personally, I'm thinking of making a few more of these puppies to stitch together into a shawl. :-D The stitches I used on it are so tight you could scrub dishes with it and it wouldn't fall apart! I'm making another one in a different pattern for a friend's birthday later this month. She's a girly-girl so she will think it's all cute. Bleah. I like lace to be sexy, not useless! Anyway, just wanted to share.
I'm a Happy Hooker! Current Mood: blah

Mission of Morning Glories.
Yeah so, the pictures don't even do justice to my ( sweet hat.Collapse )
Technicalities... um, throughout the hat I think I used an E, F, G, and H hook. Something like that. I just kind of grabbed what looked right for different parts at the time. I just used Red Heart yarn. My options were army green or way too bright green so I went with the more subtle of the two. Since I took the pictures I added more leaves and pinned a few more things in place... by pinned I mean sewed. It fits perfectly. I actually made the body of the hat twice- I did it flat and seamed it once but I hated it so I figured out how to do it in the round and I tried again. Sweet.

Wavy Gravy Rasta Tam Snood
Hello. I have been crocheting since I was in first grade when my grandma taught me, but I took a break that lasted most of highschool and college. Now that I'm a senior, I decided it was time to start having hobbies again besides lj and facebook. :)
The pattern can be found here. Current Mood: cold

metallic thread choker, "moonlit echo"
i FINALLY finished a piece i've been working on for several weeks. it used to only take me a few days to do these chokers, but my hands have yet to be fixed, so the time is much, much longer. it's frustrating, but i can still do it! hopefully i'll be back in the full swing of things, soon. in the meantime, i thought i'd share. :) meet the newest choker to the family, "moonlit echo".( moonlit echoCollapse )
i'm happy with how it turned out. the base is made from lion brand's lame' in silver, which is more of a gunmetal color. *adore!!!*

Patterns as Requested :)
Here's the 'pattern' for my Linen Market Bag. I posted about it in some other communities, but figured the pattern would be cool here. Thanks to all the people who asked!( Linen Market Bag PatternCollapse )
I hope this helps you; feel free to point out my mistakes or any inconsistencies. Remember that these are not written in stone; I did a lot of this on the fly and would probably do it differently next time just to see what would happen. I am enjoying my exploration of crochet, but I'm still learning.
