This one was quite the adventure to make! Having had quite the time making Apollo, I just had to make Projectarian’s other patterns! Of course a pattern sale just solidified that plan. Then being the yarn hoarder that I am, I also had yarn to burn through.
This particular one took me almost 3 weeks to make! The most time consuming part for me was the hair! After a few strands, I find I have to put it down and come back after a day or two. I don’t think the photos do the hair justice though. Using a “striping” yarn was definitely the right choice, and is now a must for any next Comets. This effect would definitely have been more difficult to achieve if I were to use solid colored yarn.
I may be a bit late posting about this, but I finally have this ready! Color pooling infinity scarf using moss stitch.
Making this is way simpler than it looks! You’d think you need the perfect tension, hook size, yarn type, and so on and so on……but my favorite technique is just making sure the color you are currently stitching is the same color as the stitch diagonal from it. Another technique that works for me is for beginning your project. Make your slip knot right where the color changes, and try to end your chain at a color change.
I used this tutorial by Moogly to learn how to do the Moss stitch.
What are your favorite projects for color pooling?
I’m gonna lose track soon on what part of “Adventures in Lalylala-Land” I’m currently at, thus the title. Anyways Mici is finally here! I feel it’s been a while since my last Lalylala creation.
This one used some metallic thread, which gives it a great effect!
The main reason for this guy’s photo shoot delay was finding a location. But during the 4th of July weekend, we had a chance to drive a ways away from home and found a spot for him at the Kaka’ako Waterfront park.
It was nice to have some ships around in the background, I felt it inspires a backstory for Mici. As if he wandered off and got stranded far away from home. Perhaps he could use a water-dwelling friend.
Pattern: Mici the Mermaid from Lalylala
Yarn: Red Heart With Love in Eggshell, and Bluebell; Red Heart Super Saver in White and Red; Loops and Threads Impeccable in Royal
Hook: 4.00 mm Soft Touch crochet hook from Clover USA
Other materials: metallic thread in silver; 12 mm plastic safety eyes; polyester fiber filling
We recently bought a new dining set, and found a perfect centerpiece at the thrift store. This created a need for something to protect the table from the glass edge of the bowl. It was a perfect chance to make the Charlotte square from lookatwhatimade.net!! (link below)
I didn’t complete the last part since I didn’t want it to be too large for my table. After blocking, the square ended up being 20 inches.
This kind of beauty does not come “cheap.” Like the designer’s Sophie’s Universe CAL, the instructions need a bit more focus and you may not be able to recall what happens on your show. But the result makes pausing Netflix well worth it!
