New server, new #introduction

Hello sunny gardeners! Thanks for having me 😄

I'm Michelle, moving here from which is sadly shutting down. I'm a proud #Multicrafter and mostly toot about #Crafts of all kinds, including but not limited to #Knitting, #Crochet, #Sewing #CrossStitch and things of that ilk.

Love to see, live vicariously through, and enable the creative endeavours of others!

I also do a bit of hobby gamedev over at @teahands, and have a small crafty YT channel which is also now on PeerTube at 🤓

Also also, a big fan of the #Packers and #Eurovision and toot as such during their respective seasons.

Since my old server will disappear soon, I'll attach a few examples of recently completed projects (see alt text for more info).

Looking forward to getting to know a whole new gang of creatives! 😀

Reflection of my torso as I model a very recently completed, but not blocked yet, knitted jumper. It's forest green, and made up of a squishy broken rib stitch pattern.
Three-tiered purple skirt displayed on a dressmaking dummy, in a room with yellow walls. Each tier is more gathered than the last, and the waistband is elasticated. This skirt was made from a £2.50 bed sheet!
Black lacy crochet crop top displayed on a dummy. The top is made up of repeating motifs in a vaguely floral design, but is mostly open lace. In the background is a shoe organiser hanging on the back of the door, containing all kinds of colourful craft materials.
A completed cross stitch project that needs to be ironed! It's a blue cat sitting in a bright and colourful garden full of flowers.

Progress on the #songbird #amigurumi. I'm winging (hehe) it a little, not sure how much I'll be changing in future versions, but I think it's functional so far.

This here will be the belly, feet will be attached as pipe cleaners where it's resting on my finger in the second pic. The wings... I want to do something really cool for them, not sure what yet. Not the usual single crochet, no, I'm thinking something more textured, more dense... It'll probably go over the belly and head like a cloak. That's what I'm thinking so far.


A beige shape crocheted with fine yarn and stuffed. It's a bit like a funky strawberry shape. A hand holds it over a cluttered table.
The object is tilted in a way so that one could imagine it as the body of a small bird minus the head, wings, and back. One finger is under where the feet would be.

After about 10,000 times of starting and stopping, massive unwinding, mistakes galore, frustration unlimited, pain untold, I have finally gotten my bead crochet groove back and am actually doing a good crochet piece!
Sorry, eyes and arm..I didn't mean to put you through hell. I promise I won't hurt you any more tonight!

Request for comments:

My mother wants to learn to #crochet so she can make some gifts for the grandkids, but is having difficulty finding tutorials she can follow.

Are there any best-of videos out there for absolute beginners?

(she also bought some really curly yarn, so I think that might be making it difficult, too)

I woke up thinking about what an odd genius my mother was. I always thought that #crochet was a cozy, meditative #hobby/#craft/#art. Nicely repetitive. She'd sit on the couch and create these lovely things while watching movies, chatting or reading books.

How!?! There's COUNTING!? And following patterns!?! How can you do that while reading a book? That you are also unable to hold because your hands are crocheting!?

She is long passed and so are her besties. I cannot ask, only wonder.

Here's another angle of the #crochet #Christmas treat basket showing one of the #Xmas trees on the handle from the front. #crocheting #fibreart @crochet

A photo of a Christmas crochet treat basket showing one of the two green Christmas trees that make up the handle from the front. Red bobbles are visible on the tree. The red rim of the basket is clearly visible and two of the little green wreaths can be seen on either side on the white middle part of the basket in profile. There is a little later of white tinsel yarn that adorns the bottom of the basket.

Finished embellishing the first #crochet #christmas treat baskets and I think it's turned out rather pretty 😊. I decided to have handles on the baskets this year. This one has two #Xmas trees meeting in the middle as its handle. There are also four little wreaths spaced around the middle of the basket body.

I have written up the patterns and will pop a post on my website in a day or so for anyone interested. I'll keep updating as I go along with other baskets. #crocheting #fibrecraft @crochet

A crochet Christmas treat basket on a wooden surface. The basket has two Christmas trees meeting in the middle as it's handle. They are green with red baubles. The basket body is red and white with the white being the wider middle section. There are green Christmas wreaths with red ribbons made from crochet chains around the middle. The top lip of the basket and the bottom base are red. Around the bottom is a white tinsel yarn.
Another view of the Christmas treat basket. This one is from the front where the arch of the Christmas trees that make up the handle is obvious. Two of the little green wreaths are visible from this angle. There are four in total evenly spaced around the middle of the basket.

Larger basket is getting there. Can't tell if I like the contrast of colours or whether I think it looks silly.

I'm crocheting much faster with the new hook; I can do a few rounds in one go rather than just 12 stitches or so before having to rest my hands. I'm very impressed!

I am scribbling in one of my trusty pattern notebooks today. Feels good 😊 #crochet #crochetday #crocheting #pattern

A photo of a crochet pattern notebook with a black cover with a ball of red yarn and two hooks either side of that and headed Crocheting. Underneath the heading there is multicolour text which reads:  (Crocheting) is like magic. You mumble to yourself while wiggling a stick around and other people have no idea how you did it.

Continued my pattern to make base bigger. It'll be two tone to use up cord, red base with cream walls.

Tulip crochet hook (pink) is *amazing*, no cramps at all. Quilted Bear (black) is WAY more comfortable than regular hooks, but not as comfy as Tulip. Also the metal hook on Tulip is slightly longer so you have more space to work with.

Tulip, worth it for one hook for specific project. Bear, get the set for same price as one tulip (£9ish)

“Imaginary Frog”, so called because I don’t know if any real frogs come in this colourway but they totally should! It’s designed to pair perfectly with “Sour Apple Candy” and is a fun departure from my usual palette.

Don’t worry, I know “you should stick to flowers, love” (as a non-customer once put it) if I want to actually sell yarn but please allow me a little artistic indulgence occasionally.

Good morning everyone. Later one for me as I was feeling a bit off after the flu jab the other day so Grant got up for the #parrots. Feeling much better today after a longer rest I have to say. I did dream about parrots though. Grant and I had taken them to a Parrot Fair, but Jadie turned orange as we were showing her off 🤷🏻‍♀️#goodmorning

Still picking away at my mushroom blanket, so I thought I'd share an older piece!

This is my daughter's baby blanket, I made it over the course of my wife's pregnancy. It's by far my proudest piece, but boy was it ever a nightmare to make. I was still quite new to #crochet and this yarn was far above my skill level. Burnat's baby velvet if I'm not mistaken. Frogged it several times and snapped the yarn more than once. But the struggle was worth it, I love it and so does she <3

Got me started on my next #amigurumi #crochet pattern! ✨

Here's a bit of behind the scenes on the draft, as a treat.
First time designing a #plushy for #yarn lighter than worsted.

Screenshot of a Google document titled "Songbird (Sparrow) Amigurumi". The text reads:

"Yarn: #2/fine/sport weight, three colors
Other material: (amount of) stuffing, thread or embroidery floss, pipe cleaners
Hook: 3mm
Terms: ColorA = belly and chest color | ColorB = back and head color | ColorC = accents color | sc = single crochet | dec = 1 decrease stitch | inc = 1 increase stitch 
Unless otherwise specified, sewing is done with a whipping stitch.


Round 1: Circle of 8 stitches
Round 2: Inc, 3sc, inc, 3sc (10)
Round 3: Sc, inc, 1sc, inc, 2sc, inc, 2sc, inc (14)
Round 4: 2sc, inc, 6sc, inc, 4sc (16)
Round 5: "

It’s Friday, the start of unofficial Week 5 of the #FallFinishAlong! How’s it going? As September comes to a close, I’m done with most of what I targeted for the month and I am feeling good about casting on. I’m going to try to carry some finishalong energy into October and see if I can finish the slippers I cast on, make some progress on other projects, and maybe kill one or two more! #knitting #FiberArts #crochet #quilting #Ceramics #CrossStitch @knitting @fiberarts

Yesterday I started crocheting a #HexagonCardigan. I have no idea WTF I'm doing, but I've watched YT videos so clearly I should be an expert now. 🤣🤣 It's in the boring blob stage so photos are weird to post. I've never crocheted a garment before. Tbh, I've never finished anything bigger than a washcloth in #crochet.

I regret to inform [some of] you that #crochet cars are now being #AI generated.

This means they've ingested a lot of people’s crochet photos.

Optimistically, maybe AIs will soon be able to reverse-engineer some crochet patterns from photos so that designs without known patterns can be preserved.

Pessimistically, Pinterest may become self-generating.

A Bing image search page is shown, a grid of found images, with a larger AI-generated image to the left. All the photos contain cars covered in what looks like crocheting or fabric. Most look human-made, like strange 3D cousins of crazy quilts and afghans. The AI-made image is of a white-haired woman in an orange sweater standing next to a  Mercedes G 500-ish vehicle (think boxy jeep) made out of rainbow-colored yarn as thick as rope and twine. The grille is crocheted into lavender louvers. The tires are concentric circles of bright-colored yarn. Glass, windshield wipers (one backwards), and Mercedes logo are the only obvious exceptions.

So new instance new #introduction I guess. So I migrated because a few reasons. One being is that the fediverse is deeply antisemitic and I feel more comfortable being in an explicitly Jewish instance as gotosocial improves to a point where I can comfortably use it as my main. I also like akkoma and wanted to try it out and I dig it a lot.

Anyway my name is gabe or gavi, whichever is easier for you to pronounce in your first language :) I am a 22 year old #gay #jewish dude who loves #knitting #reading #crochet #knitting #gaming #minecraft and #baldursgate3 as well as obviously #doctorwho

I also run a book and writing focused #lemmy instance called which has such a cute and cozy community I love dearly

Basket taking shape now!

Have ordered some padded silicone crochet hooks to see if that helps with the hand fatigue and cramping. I've a whole set of cheaper ones coming (quilted bear) and one single Tulip Etimo in the right size. A set of the Tulips runs to about £88 which is way out of my price range! I'll do a comparison when they arrive.

Where did I learn lacemaking? (Knitting, crochet, tatting, needle lace, bobbin lace etc?)

Lol I learned on YouTube. Forums like ravelry. Reading a LOT of antique patterns on, and examining old lace. I have a small collection of old lace. Most of the time I save pictures from the web bc I just want to figure out the pattern or use it as inspiration.
Some of these old laces don't HAVE patterns. They were taught by word of mouth.

I mean, it takes years of knitting, crochet, tatting and general lacemaking to gain the skill to identify lace. Or, you can read books about lace identification and value.

Lacis Museum in Berkeley CA has a great collection of antique lace. They sell antique lace and other antique textile stuff, publish books and have beginner classes for lace.

Every other year at least, Maire Treanor, one of the last professional Irish Crochet/Clones lace makers, has a workshop.

Blown away by the response to Purls of Magic already, dang y'all 🥺

Even though it was a long game jam (3 months!) I didn't think I'd make it in time. Between illness, a planned summer vacation and my basement flooding, all the odds were against it.

Really pleased with this demo, it's a fantastic start to what I think will be an awesome game. I had a great & supportive jam experience, and have connected with tons of fellow GB devs! ❤️

I'm excited to continue work on this over the winter, and release Purls of Magic the way I envisioned it!

It’s #crochet day! The only side effect remaining from my treatment has been numbed fingers, I was wary of coming back to my brioche knit and finding it too hard. So I came back to granny squares with some yarn I had from ages ago. This may be a pillow case and needs blocking. But here it is! I’m making a thing!

Six crochet squares in multi color pastels, joined together with white stripes. The fabric is laying on a wooden floor, and it still has yarn attached - it’s unfinished. The squares as wonky in shape and sizes are dissimilar, this will be fixed by blocking them, hopefully.
