    it's cute but needs to be fluffier, methinks. aren't there yarns that are fluffy default.

    that said, i applaud your efforts.

    I thought of that but didn't know how functional it would be if it was really fluffy.

    yeah, well, my mum does a lot of knitting about the house... i would have thought something like this here: http://www.junghanswolle.de/stricken-haekeln/garne/effektgarne/brazilia?SID=SID_zivATk6mhBDzsQkRVrqc5aZqiH2c

    she used to make scraves from similar wool and you could still tell where the substance ended and the fluff began, if that makes any sense.

    I have an hour commute to work and back and I get motion sick when I read so I needed something to entertain me on the bus. So I started knitting hats. I am modeling a few here. :)

    Some have homes,and some don't. And some hats went out before I could model them. But I like them all. :)

    PS. Knitting a hat now. :p

    My first attempt at a Firefly hat. I made it for someone else and have never seen the show (*is shunned*) so it was made completely off pictures I found online. It turned out pretty okay but I did find things I would do differently next time. :)

    I also made R2D2, Han on Tauntaun and Luke on Tauntaun, but I guess I forgot to take pictures of those.

    I'm working on a crochet Wookiee that I will have to post when I finish it.

    Wow thanks guys! I'm all about sharing my art, so steal away, and if you need more pictures let me know! I make a few a year. I thought about trying to start a business about a year ago, but unfortunately right now, people don't have a lot of money to spend on upgrades to their houses. I do have a couple of other projects that I'm working on to expand my portfolio though.

    Oh, blocky... first your thespian tendencies and now this. Your dreaminess knows no bounds.

    Those stained glass pieces are **** jelly. Seriously, commendable job.

    I wish I was artistic... :_|

    Found the bamboo table mat at a resale shop and wanted to do something with it and put it on my wall. Finally decided on copying the graffiti done on fb by a friend. Cut it out in cardboard, gold leafed it with a varigated leaf and then coated it with polyurethane so it lasts and easier to clean.

    [image=http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y5/healerleona/P1000565.jpg]


    The pictures are a couple I picked up in New Orleans and attached with a dab of hot glue so I can change the pictures when I find something else I like.

    The stained glass rocks Block. I always wanted to learn how to do that.
