Wow! Lots of stuff! I’m waiting for more yarn to come, too. I ran out while testing a basket. It’s always the worst. :(
keantha answered: Crocheting a star for the center of a blanket..SO close to being done it hurts >.<
I hope you’ve finished by now! I bet it looks great!
kirkdoestumble said: A corner-to-corner blanket, a granny square blanket, a dragon-scale bag (abc-knitting-patterns.c…), a Deadpool amigurumi, and some look-a-like amigurumi dolls. I really need to finish one project before starting another. Hahaha
It’s the curse of the yarn artists!

It’s WIP WEDNESDAY!!!!!
What are you working on? What’s on your hooks?

String With Style: How to - Wind a Hank Into a Ball Without a Ball Winder or a Swift
Don’t you just love all the lovely hanks you can find all over the internet! I love that so many moms have found ways to work from home and the yummy yarn that they spin and dye just makes me drool!!!!! BUT if you don’t have a swift and a ball winder to wind the hanks into cakes then you can have a serious mess on your hands! Knotted, tangled yarn messes are avoided at all costs around this house! GAH!!! They take forever to fix!
If you’re intimidated by buying hanks because you either had one bad experience, or you just don’t know how to use or wind them, check out this tutorial by String with Style!
If you are a fellow amigurumi maker, would you be as so kind to help me in my quest? If you know the answer to this question please chat with me!
The amigurumi I made have too small of holes (har har har) to push safety eyes through. So, I would like to embroider them on using what I found to be called “The Satin Stitch”. Thing is, I cannot find any tutorials on how to satin stitch on finished amigurumi for the life of me. It’s possible, I have seen and done the best research to my ability. No tutorials though. Would somebody help me in my search?? OR, if you know how to go about this and would like to teach me, I would love to be your student! I’ve been searching for weeks. Please help me loving people of Tumblr. I will be so thankful!
Hey there! I found a tutorial in eyes at Mochimochi land. She is adding eyes to a knitted amigurumi, but you could use the same concept on a crocheted amigurumi. (Satin Stitch eyes are the last on the list.)
It seems fairly straightforward. If you want to watch a video of the satin stitch on some cloth, check out this video:
I hope this helps!

Woohoo! I haven’t seen GotG, but I’ve been seeing all these crocheted Groots all over the place, and I kinda want to make one for myself!
morningguardian answered: I’m working on a blanket! It’s gold and turquoise zigzags 5 rows dc each running longways with 1 row brown inbetween
Ooh! Sounds nice!

lalael answered: Finished all the squares for the crib blanket I’m making! Now to join and border!
You did a great job!
doctorloki40 answered: The tail end of the fox scarf! The end is in sight lol :P
Ahhhhh! I’m so excited for you!
knitdirtyeatclean said: Just started an infinity scarf with soft gray yarn. I have been mostly crocheting lately so knitting feels odd
Ah, I understand. Like when I work a huge project in extended single crochet, then going back to single crochet feels weird as heck!
thecraftypremed answered: Baby turtle set and working on my instructor certification work!
THAT IS SO EXCITING!!!!
wrockercamohoney answered: A ripple baby blanket for a friend.
reversedluck answered: cat toy, just need a firtree cone to put inside

Awesome! I’d love to see some pics, especially of that lovey!
Like this is what I mean with this CSC stitch, when I just do it it curls because the ‘ch’ side seems much tighter than the ‘sc’ side, even though I don’t feel like I’m changing the pressure on it?
When I pull it out it straightens (don’t mind the slight curl in mine tho I accidentally flipped the stitches haha) and the tightness seems to even out, but… ?? I can’t imagine that’s how the stitch is supposed to be made :/
Does this help you any?
If not, try looking up video tutorials. Chainless Single Crochet is the same as Foundation Single Crochet (or sometimes incorrectly called “Foundationless” Single Crochet)
Wee Wonderfuls: Clara How-to part 1: Ringlets!
Let’s start out with… I’m no expert. Honestly, I faked my way through this. I think it turned out cute, not too too hard and I hope it’ll hold up well…
If you want to give your amigurumi dolls some gorgeous ringlets, why not check out this tutorial! The tutorial uses knitting needles to wrap your yarn around, but I’m sure you could use dowel rods instead, if you don’t have the proper needles on hand!
