(get it, steph?!)  Jimmy was a fantastic friend that died 10 years ago this week, and he is the one that made up the whole ‘gnat on the windshield~ splat, splat, splat’ thing!!!

Anyhow, this is my alltime favorite picture of us:

 

Wish you were still here!!!

My internet works? October 13, 2008

Filed under: amigurumi,crochet,free patterns,kittens — gnathalie2 @ 6:55 am

I have tried to write so many posts in the last couple weeks, but my internet keeps cutting off!!!  3 cable guys later, lets hope it stays on this time!!

First off, this is what happens when Luis pays a bill instead of getting Snowball fixed:

Luis’s prize?  A big, fat ‘I told you so’!!  From me!!

The first one she had (all white) was stillborn, and then this afternoon we had to buy the orange one in the middle.  Maybe it wasn’t born ‘right’?  Don’t know, but Snowball is a good mommy so it was nothing she did wrong.  Maddie found him in the corner of the closet, and they usually stay right in the middle.  (sad face)

 

Second, here are some show and tell projects!!

  This is from SueZann, using my octopus pattern

 

And here is a fancy feast fish from Shini:

And some evilness from soxknitter!!:

 

And who in the world can forget Hostile Bunni!!  Well, he’s up to his old tricks again (illusions, Michael!) and he’s got some help from PrincessDelirious~~~ Evil Ninja Minions!!!!!

free pattern here: http://deliriousnanite.livejournal.com/12967.html

It seems as though he’s hired help to do his evil bidding, and what is more evil than evil ninjas?!! 

I found a few watching me sleep, and stalking the cats:

Evil ninja minions!! by you.

Ninja spies on Hamster by you.

Yellow ninja minion by you.

 

They like to hang out and ‘observe’ in the spooky Halloween tree:

Ninja minions in the spooky tree by you.

 

(they have had to put their evil plans on hold due to the deaths of the babies, even they’re not that evil!)

 

I also found this adorable free pattern by Owly: http://owlishly.typepad.com/owlishly/2008/10/free-pattern–sleepy-sarah-amigurumi-pattern.html

Little Red Gnome-y Hood Baby

I decided to make it into a ghost cause of the shape of the head:

ghost 1 by you.

ghost 2 by you.

ghost 3 by you.

I made the head and body all in one piece, and i left out one of the 30sc rounds so it would give it a more ghostly shape~ the kids love it!

 

Free pattern online?  tons of them, but here are the 2 or three that  i haven’t seen other places:

Shaun the sheep: http://www.purplelindacrafts.co.uk/free-pattern-shaun-the-sheep-crochet-pattern-1115-p.asp#

It’s a cool pattern, but i still haven’t found a way to print it all out!
