Flared Legwarmers by quirkyhime
Flared Legwarmers
I finished the Flared Legwarmers (except for blocking) a little while ago. I really like how they turned out, minus the obvious mistakes I made (which I can see every time I look at them). lol One is clearly better than the other (thank goodness my phone has a crappy camera). :D It's ok. I still love them. <3

Anyway, it's a FREE pattern by Desgraced.

Yarn Used: Red Heart Super Saver in Blue Tones, just over 1 skein. Worsted weight. 100% Acrylic.

Ravelry Link:…

Pattern Link for Non Rav members:…

EDIT: Blocked successfully! Woohoo!! (For those wondering why I bothered with this particular update, I had a bad experience the first time I blocked something with natural fibers, so I have developed a serious procrastination problem when it comes to blocking ANYTHING. ^^; )
     Also, I am making another pair in a black yarn with rainbow specks in it. :D I really love how easy it is and the legwarmers are so comfy!! :eager:
Fluffy Flip Flops by quirkyhime
Fluffy Flip Flops
I don't know if I already showed you guys these (didn't see them in my gallery, so I guess not). ^^;

I had some fun fur yarn that my Nana gave me some time ago and a pattern book from :iconisika: called Kooky Crochet that had decorated flip flops. Thought they would be (and they totally are) cute. ;)
I had fun with this and it was super quick and easy. I like easy. lol :iconnervouslaughplz:

I love crafting! I draw, write and crochet, primarily. I am still struggling with learning how to knit. ^^; Please don't hesitate to talk to me! I am very friendly and get along well with everyone. :hug: And I LOVE making new friends! :heart:
Find me on Ravelry!! Same username. ;p
Hey guys!!

Wow, I didn't realize it had been so long since my last journal update (January :iconlegaspplz: )! Well, for those that may have wondered, I am indeed still alive. :D :happybounce: :huggle: to all that missed me!!

I have checked in once to twice, just to keep my watches down below a certain number (otherwise, I just press delete without giving the artist's work a fair glance *ducks produce* ) ^^;

Anyway, I really should submit something new soon. Maybe some ACNL qr codes. I could share one or two of them. lol

Also, on the crafty front, my Cropped Sweater pattern is almost ready to test. I just need to do the sleeves (super quick and easy) then wash (please God, no felting or foul stench!! :faint: ) I am hoping that won't be an issue this time out, since I'm using acrylic fiber instead of wool.

I have also been thinking about doing some ACNL villager doodles. And some of my Mayor, of course. :D And maybe some fanart of Tony DiTerlizzi's Wondla trilogy. I love it so much!! They just released the final book!! :excited: Naturally, I need to re-read the first two (I own the first one, but I have to get my hands on the second).

I have an old pair of jeans I want to up-cycle, but I'm still deciding what exactly I want to do with them. Right now, they are faded with small holes on the inside corners (where the pockets are sewn to the jeans). Basically, if you're looking at my butt, you can see the holes, however, in the grand scheme of things, I doubt too many would notice. :blush: I also have a couple of old tank tops I don't wear (except as a last resort/laundry day). One's purple and the other is green. They are way too tight. ^^;

My craft list is ridiculously long. :D I have been working on knitting legwarmers (still only on the first one, but I'm about half way - dpns are weird; I am also using a lifeline and tinking when needed). I'm also knitting a shawl, working on the edging for my grandmother's dishcloths, an amigurumi for my cousin, and designing a Skyward Sword themed crochet (potentially knit) shawl. Still mostly in my head, though. ^^;

So, yeah. . .lotsa stuff I want/need to do. Also, Skyrim is fun and I haven't recently been introduced to Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for the Wii. Totally addicted and loving Ghirahim (I hate villains as a rule, so it surprised even me when I fell for him). I love pairing him with Link, too. *hides* Don't hit me! ^^; (I've also never been one for hero/villain pairings.)

Sorry for the long update, guys!! Just wanted to catch you up!! Keep your eyes peeled for some new submissions!! :iconmonkeyloveplz:
