chayiana: (Merlin - HELLO! ♥)
[personal profile] chayiana
So, [ profile] iolandasblog told me about this hobby of hers... crocheting amigurumi! You never heard of it? Me neither! *lol* I mean, I did some crocheting ages ago in school, I even made a shirt for my Mon-chichi back then, but I usually stayed away from anything to do with needleworks and stuff. But when she told me about it, something intrigued me to try it myself. So, I bought wool and a crochet hook and made my first amigurumi:


Yeah, I know the beak turned out a tiny little bit too big and it somehow sits almost on its forehead, but hey, it was a first! :D But you've to admit it's kinda cute, isn't it? ^^

So, despite that I knew I really needed much more practice, the next project was slightly more ambitious, I just couldn't resist...

Hippie!Merlin! LOL

Don't worry... he got his desperately needed hair cut:


So, what do you say? :D

Waaaaah, wie süß! Ich hab meine Schildkrötenbrigade fertig aber leider nicht fotografiert. Wird nach dem Urlaub sofort nachgeholt.

Aber ich muss schon sagen, der Merlin ist dir wirklich richtig gut gelungen! Saustark!!!

Ja, mach das mal! Ich will die sehen! :D

Und danke! *freu* Ich bin auch wirklich ein kleines bisschen stolz auf mich ... *g* ich hatte ja keine Anleitung und musste improvisieren, allerdings ist er im Grunde auch einfach, weil man nur die richtige Farbkombi braucht, damit es nach Merlin aussieht! LOL

Oh, but the hair was a pain, let me tell you that! You have to put every single hair seperately into the head, and he's got loads of them! LOL

I guess it's not really amigurumi I'm crocheting, just little animals and figures. But its fun and relaxing :D
The giraffe is next!

Well, from the description of what amigurumi is and how it's done, I think it's exactly what you and I are doing. *gg* I'll keep calling it that, because it's nice to have a name for it and people get so confused when you say it. LOL

I look forward to your giraffe, I found it rather complicated, so I'll stick with the more easy ones for now. :D

By the way, have you seen this??? Unbelievable!!!!

Wie niedlich!! Und Merlin sieht wirklich wie Merlin aus.

Wie groß sind denn die kleinen Kerlchen? Vier, fünf Zentimeter?

Und häkelt man einfach drauf los? Oder hast du dir eine Zeichnung gemacht, um z.B. zu wissen, wann du die Farbe wechslen musst?

Danke! :D Ich bin auch ganz verliebt! LOL

Wie gross? Ich wuerde sagen, so ca. 10 cm. Ich wollte ihn eigentlich etwas kleiner haben, aber irgendwie hat es sich anders ergeben ... *gg*

Ich habe tatsaechlich einfach drauf los gehaekelt, nachdem ich mir angeguckt habe, wie man eigentlich Baelle macht. Und die Farbe musste ich ja nur einmal wechseln, das ging dann nach Gefuehl. *g* Die Jacke und das Halstuch sind eigenstaendige Teile (das Halstuch kann man sogar abnehmen *g*). Aber am schlimmsten waren die Haare! Jedes ist einzeln geknuepft (okay, imer zwei auf einmal), das waren ne Menge kleiner Faeden!
Aber es hat riesigen Spass gemacht, und irgendwann ist auch Arthur dran! :D

Danke! *freu* :D

Und ja, die Ohren mussten sein ... hab mich weggeschmissen beim Haekeln und anbringen! LOL

WOWWWW you are so talented! they are both incredible well done. I'm looking forward to seeing a photo of the whole collection now, Arthur, Gwen, Morgana, the dragon etc :)

Woohooo, thanks so much! *beams proudly*

Well, I guess for the whole collection you may have to wait a bit, but I've got this for now:

Hehe, there's even a little story behind it:


It should have become the very best day of his life. Court sorcerer. A sublime title and the end of a long, long journey…

But of course the prat had to ruin everything. Yes, he held Arthur responsible for this whole mess; for the very fact that he now would face the pyre after all. He glanced at the monstrosity on his left and sighed dramatically. He didn’t dare to look to his right, simply preferring to cover his face in his hands and give free rein to his sorrow.


“Gwen!” He anxiously leapt to his feet. Yet before he could say anything, Gwen’s eyes widened suddenly. Obviously she had noticed the bundle of clothes lying next to him on the steps in front of the thrones – and naturally not only that.

“What have you done?” Gwen whispered, shocked.

“I…I’m gonna fix it, I…swear!” Gwen’s eyebrow did quite an impressive imitation of Gaius’ and Merlin snapped. “Don’t look at me like that! The clotpole had it coming, he asked for it. He tried forcing me to wear that –” he indicated at the very pointy, very violet hat which was covered with dozens of shiny golden stars – “at the ceremony! I warned him…repeatedly, but he wouldn’t listen and…”

An indignant “Croak!” interrupted him from his right.

“Oh, shut up, Arthur! At least you’re not braying this time!”


Have a lovely weekend and say 'hi' to your hubby! *hugs*
