I'd walk a 1000 miles, just for you.
Triforce Pillows 
21st-Sep-2012 02:39 am [crochet, geeky]
I can't believe I nearly forgot to post about these! Better late than never I guess. 

I learned a lot while making these. I had originally looked at these and estimated the yardage needed based on knitting. I quickly figured out though that crochet takes a 'lot' more yarn; as easy a crochet is, I can't crochet without looking like I can knitting . It was a nice little thrill finishing each triangle so quickly as it made me feel like I'd finished something, even though it was a piece of a larger project. And I somewhat figured out how to crochet blind as I crocheted the last little bit of seams that I could reach from the inside, after I'd already turned it. 

All in all it was a fun project and I enjoyed making them. Explaining to people what they were on the other hand ... let's just say that apparently very few people I talked to have every heard of Zelda, Link, or Final Fantasy.

They look cool :) How big are they?

Um ... one of the few projects I don't measure before mailing out and you want to know the size? LOL

I think they were about 6inches high and 2inches wide?

I can try to measure them when I get home...if I remember! ;p

That would be cool. :D No biggie though, if you forget. ;)

Of course - that's just how I roll! ;)

Thanks - a guesstimate is fine - I just wondered as I couldn't really tell the perspective from the photo.

Sorry it took me so long to get back to you...I'll post a reply to you that way both you and Shadow will get it...

They are 12x12x12inches and 3 inches deep.

Thanks again Shadow!

Neat! Which do you like better, knitting or crocheting?
21st-Sep-2012 05:24 pm (UTC)
Crocheting has it's place, I guess. ;) I'm much happier knitting. I prefer the look of knit things, the flexibility of the fabric, the drape, the smoothness.

Hee hee! I'm still thrilled that you love them so much. You are so very welcome. Did you and Jeff ever come to an agreement about who they belong to?

I think since there are two of them that we've decided to share...mumble grumble! ;p
