Old lady art

Postby Farore » Wed Mar 07, 2012 2:11 am

It seems like everyone on the forums has their own art passion and has posted about it. I can draw a mean stick figure, but that's about as far as it goes. When I was in elementary school my mom and grandma taught me how to crochet and I've been pretty into it recently. I've made a number of blankets through the years but don't really have any pictures of most of them, but I just finished this one so I have pictures! I know that crocheting and knitting are considered the type of thing old ladies do, but I love it.

So here's my old lady art =p

And this one, before it was done, because it was adorable. I couldn't bring myself to work on it until she moved of her own free will.

Sorry if the pictures are too big, I'm not sure how to resize them >.<

Oooooh rubber kitten. She has to find other places to lay since I'm not there keeping the left side of the bed warm =P

It looks good though, good job.

Knitting and crocheting seem too complicated for me xD I would never even try, it'd all go horribly wrong ahaha...

But this looks nice! And is seemingly fluffy and inviting enough for a cat, so it passes inspection! Well done :D

As a man that makes cat noises all the time, I have to agree with the cat.
I am not a reasonable man.

That reminds me squirrel, while she was still working on it she tried to show me how she's doing it and I just gave her a blank stare and "...you lost me"

At the same time it's about the same as if you were to show me some "basic" robotics stuff, lol. Paul generally loses me also but in an awesome and random way. If only cause you never know what he's going to swoop in and say.

Thanks for sharing Farore =)

Do you have any Zelda inspired projects??? That would be really cool hehe. But I think what you posted is nice too. My mom used to be really into it when she was younger but then she stopped doing it after a while, which I thought was a shame. Looks nice and comfy! =3

My Ruby kitten not rubber kitten silly. Thanks guys. It really just looks more complicated than it is. I haven't done anything game related.... yet. I've pretty much always just used free patterns I can find, though at some point I want to get adventurous and make something up. I really enjoy doing it and find it relaxing.
