Roll up for the mystery tour

That’s right, the Prince of All Cosmos is finally finished!

Me and the Prince of All Cosmos!

And he’s already off to his new home in Virginia! Hopefully he’ll have a safe journey, and not roll up too many other packages on his way there… ūüėČ His Ravelry project page is here, for those of you curious for more details and an extra picture.

Playing catch-up

Making so many plushies in such a short timespan has left me a bit drained! I’ve been trying to relax by learning about Tunisian crochet. I’m¬†making a bunch of squares showcasing the different stitches, and I’m planning to knit them together to make a blanket for¬†my couch.¬†I’d love to order the interchangeable crochet hook kit from Denise Interchangeable Needles but I can’t really spend superfluous money right now. Oh well, maybe¬†my parents¬†will get it for¬†me as a birthday present eventually? ūüôā

I haven’t forgotten my commission work. On Monday I finished up all the knitting for the Prince of All Cosmos plushie I’ve been working on for two weeks. All he needs now is a face! I need to get to the craft store and buy myself some felt so I can ship this guy out. He’s a whopping 22 inches tall, from the top of his antenna to the bottom of his feet.

Prince of All Cosmos, minus his face

I will post another picture when he finally gets his face. Then, he’ll look perfect. (Or so I hope!)

Marathon over!

Thank you to everyone who came to watch Speed Demos Archive‘s¬†Japan Relief Done Quick and raised money for Doctors Without Borders! At the end of¬†the marathon, we raised $22,718.92! That’s certainly a lot of money to help all those in Japan needing medical help after the horrible earthquakes and tsunami. We couldn’t have done it without all of you.

Even metroids like raising money for charity! (And draining life energy.)

My plushies seemed to be a hit, and I couldn’t be more pleased. It makes me feel wonderful to give my time as well as my money to a great cause. The final two plushies I made were a Metroid (see above; Ravelry page here)¬†and a surprise, last-minute Ocarina of Time (Ravelry page here).

Note: does not make sounds like a real ocarina. ;)

More plushies, hats, and other goods are always on the way.

Working up a storm

I’m knitting things like crazy, to give away as donation incentives during Speed Demos Archive’s Japan Relief Done Quick! You can watch it now, and help raise money for Doctors Without Borders. One of my plushies has already been given away, and there are 9 more waiting to be given out!
