Kick Ass Weekend!

Kick Ass Weekend!

I had such a great weekend!!!!

I got some awesome stuff from my friends, I went to a bar to hang out with my bf and his friends; got drunk as fuck, had an intense, relationship changing moment with le bf, and my nephew popped in to say hello! πŸ˜€

This summer is shaping up to be a great one so far! Now all I need is a yob and I’ll be super super happy πŸ˜€

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 πŸ˜›

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 πŸ˜›

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

It’s to DYE For…

I couldn’t resist a good pun πŸ˜‰

I’ve been dyeing with Kool Aid and Wilton’s icing dye.

It’s so much fun! The colors come out amazing, and I have the utter satisfaction of having something unduplicatable (COINING WORDS AGAIN??!??)<3

Pictures? Of course [picture overload warning]:

Dyeing is so addictive… I’m mixing it with my other new love (spinning) so I can be really authentic!
