Ice Cream!

^_^

I love ice cream…. too bad it doesn’t love me back. Or so I thought.

I have made some amigurumi ice cream cones.

Cute Ice Cream

This is my prototype. I think she came out very cute ^__^

Being a prototype is a lot to live up to. I wasn’t satisfied with the way the cone came out on this one… I wanted a more realistic cone, like this:

I wanted that prominent ridge on the top...

So I decided to try again…

Happy Ice Cream

This time, the ridge was perfect...but the head too big :/

You can see more pictures of her on my Flickr Photostream; I iz too lazy to put anymore up 😛

From one problem to the next: This time I made the head too big. The cone has (to my estimation) the same stitch count as the first, minus the ridged part… I think that’s where the crucial difference lies. The ice cream part also; I got a bit carried away with the increases on it…

I’ve actually made an Italian Ice one, too… pictures later. I am happy with the way it came out; I’m learning as I make up shit 😛

Another ice cream or Italian ice (mebbe one of each?) will be made today 🙂

Let the Headband Frenzy Begin!

I finished my headband 🙂

Awesomely amazing, I must say. I am on a headband frenzy, as they look cute on me, and best show off mah haircut. I queued a bunch of headband pattern on Ravelry, but will make up some myself as well 🙂

I think I will peruse the Library of Knitting stitches and find a nice stitch to make another headband tonight 🙂

Rhythm Heaven!

This game fucking roxor my soxors!

(Yet another reason why I get nothing done… video games.)

IGN gave it an awesome rating:

It earned it, believe me.

Like I said, all of my hobbies are expensive.

I am a pirate, but I actually LIKE buying the games. I love Nintendo and don’t mind supporting them in the least. I have spent over $400 on games for my DS in total….not counting the ones I sold/gave away.

Speaking of, I need to re-buy Elite Beat Agents…lent it to a friend, and he never gave it back…and the fucker moved away to some college upstate.

*shrug*

Lesson# 346723: never lend black people shit—and expect to get it back.
