Still too tired...

I'm sorry to tell you that I'm still far too tired to be able to crochet anything at the moment. All summer I've been working full time and have been trying to balance my family time with my work and still function at an acceptable level. My pregnancy have really made me tired this time!!

But at least I've started dreaming about all these kawaii baby things I'll crochet when time comes ;)

Tired, sooo tired!

About a month ago, I realized I'm pregnant! Really happy news, of course, but I've been so terrible tired ever since, so I havn't been able to crochet anything at all. Hence the lack of updates. But at least I've found a place for my creatures - they're now sitting on top of our book shelf in our living room. Looking pretty good, actually, even though Totoro still got his crazy eyes ;)

The rain is pouring down outside, and I'm going to bed. Dead tired.

Ooops! I've been wondering why I hadn't got a single comment on my posts - and then my friend Zarah pointed out that she couldn't leave comments in the blog. And when I checked it out, I realized that no one could leave comments, 'cause the code was wrong. Hence the lack of comments, I guess ;) But after about a hour of mind killing blogger work, it should now work :)

Le Dunno monstre est mort, vive le Dunno monstre!

I wouldn't say I've killed the Dunno monster, but when my husband asked me if I was making an ashtray, I got second thoughts. He got far to big, and I didn't get any feelings for the creation I was making. No, he won't become a monster, right now he's more like a little basket or maybe a boat that my fuzzy koala is sitting in. Problably I'll just throw it away.

But today I've started with a new Dunno monster prototype. And to my sons delight he is yellow! :) I've completed the head, the muzzle and the upper lip, and though I'm not sure about the construction of the upper lip, at least it looks like something between a dragon and a monster. He'll get a lot of jags and teeth and claws, and --- yes --- I'm taking notes :)

As soon as he looks a bit more finished, I will take some photos. But right now it's time to make some supper so we won't starve to death ;)

Dunno monster project

Oh well, this is as far as I have come with my monster project. It was supposed to be a yellow monster, but I found a three colored yarn that would be great for a monster. But since I havn't done any sketches, I just call it my Dunno monster. The future will tell what he will look like :) I guess he will be rather big/fat, cause the bottom is quite large, but I havn't decided how tall I'll make him. My son wanted it to look really scary, so I hope he won't be disappointed when it's finished. I mean, I don't know how to make a crochet animal look scary? But if I give the monster a few fangs and jags perhaps he'll be happy?

I'm home from work this weekend, feeling a bit sorry for myself. I really hate to be sick and snotty.

Fuzzy koala?

I've been trying to brush my koala for the fuzzy look I'm after, but I dunno. He's actually still rather nun-fuzzy. The work continues.

How to make muzzle using felt

Kawaii Cloud has made a tutorial (in spanish) of how to make a muzzle using felt. I think it's really cute actually, and I'm looking forward to try out some felt work for my animals.

She also has a very nice blog, and I recommend a visit! If the spanish is a problem, you can always use Google translator or something :)
