Seriously, where are all you guys coming from? O.O That is amazing! Thank you so much! I really appreciate it and I hope I can bring you lots and lots of neat things to make it worth the watch. Thank you too to those who have commissioned me over the past couple years. It goes a long way to help me pay bills and keep making the things I do. I want to celebrate this, what should I do? Should I make another give away piece? If so, what? I thought about maybe a llama since that is a DA related piece, but which one?
Plans for this month:
Size Comparisons: A lot of people ask me what size pieces are. It really depends on what animal it is, the size of the yarn, and a few other things. I'm going to take a photo with a some of my pieces together to help you guys out. The adult horse is much bigger than my foal since they go together. It is the same with my deer and fawn pieces. However the adult deer is almost as big as the horse, so even though the adults and babies are in scale with each other, other species aren't in scale with each other. My crochet dogs are a little bigger than my lions because their necks/legs are bigger. Hopefully putting these pieces together will help you guys out who are interested. I will also show another example of how chunky yarn changes the size a lot just like with the recent Haku dragons.
EDIT: Here are the photos for the size comparisons.
Patterns: Elk, Bear Cub, Rabbit(took out the rat and will try a rabbit for Easter). I don't know when I will get these done, but these are my goal for this month.
Commissions: I've got three that I'm currently working on/finishing up, but commissions are still open since these ones are almost done. If you have questions about a commission or want to see how much your OC might be just note me.
Earth Day - Bonsai Tree or Earth Spirit, the poll is pretty close on this and I still haven't decided which one to do yet. Both have great potential.
Creatures with striking features - Still on the fence about this one as well. I'm thinking either some kind of bird or sea horse
Dreams - I really want to enter this one, but I am blanking on ideas. I hope maybe I'll have a random dream soon I can base a piece off of. I think something like Shookran would be neat, but I haven't even daydreamed about anything like him in a while.
Future Projects: I've wanted to work on these for a long time but they sort of slip away when I get busy with other things. So I'm going to put them on here to see if anyone would even be interested.
Altoid Mint Tins/Mini Terrariums: I want to make simple animals/creatures that fit inside mint tins. I also want to make mini terrariums with thread crochet creatures. Both ideas have been done before, but I want to do my take on them. I'll give more information about them once I get closer to starting them or if anyone is interested.
Humans: I will eventually get back into making human characters again. It may be silly but I want to make some youtube themed stuff. I watch a lot of youtubers while I'm crocheting. Listening to something in the background really helps things move along. I want to make characters and stuff from some of the videos I've seen. I guess if people can go absolutely crazy about MLP I can make a few youtube things, right? Imma say yes lol
Sketches: Even though I have a lot of these very rarely do they last more than a few minutes before I scribble them out. The ones that do make it rarely are ever seen by anyone else. But I think actually showing some of them will help me commit to the idea of then making them in crochet. Sometimes you get an idea, then never follow thorough, but you are like well no one will be disappointed because no one knew about it. I don't want to let potential great ideas slip away. So I'm going to try to post those so I will have to follow through.
Is there anything else you guys can think of that you've had questions about or just want to ask me?
