Leg Scrub & Desk Organizer

I found these around the web and decided to kind of bookmark them on this blog to try later. The desk organizer I am specifically excited for; I have loads of shoe boxes, and I'm sure I'll build up some toilet paper rolls in no time.

Little Bunny Blue

I tried another amigurumi piece of cuteness, using this Sweetheart Bunny pattern. I completed the head first... then learned by accident that I'd been crocheting incorrectly! I was doing an action called "crocheting though the back loop", which I thought was a normal crochet stitch. It turns out I need to be inserting the hook through both legs of each stitch.

So because of this, my projects have always been bigger than the pattern suggested they'd be, and you could see in between the holes in the holes since they were more prominent. After making the head too large, I had to alter the rest of the pattern to fit the size. I think it turned out well enough, but could definitely be better. At least I know for my next project!

(Sorry for the poor lighting. There has been no sunlight for weeks now.)

Finished Slime-in-a-bottle Picture

I realized I never posted the finished bottle of slimes, complete with aloe gel to keep them floating happily in place. So, here's a look!

In addition, here's my first big crochet project, completed a few months ago. I did up a fox doll based on a pattern that I can't seem to recall. It's around somewhere on the internet :I Regardless, I did not make this pattern for the fox, or the hat. I did make the hair on my own, simply by sewing it in with a yarn needle. If you remove the hat, there is actually a little bald spot underneath, almost like a monk, ha ha.
