Hello Chae! 

 

Thank you so much!

 

If I have to choose... I have to say singing with my guitar, but other than that it has to be crochet. I've not been able to do much of it (currently in my second year of MSc dissertation) but I'll post some in a few minutes *goes to find pictures*

 

That cake looks delicious! Butter icing is my favourite!

My most recent was a scarf I did for a friend of mine for her birthday (2 weeks ago).

It's supposed to be able to move and fold as you wish to be however you like it most.

Very fast, actually. 2 hours max? It's just crocheting a circle, and stuffing them, then putting them together :biggrin:

Welcome Besie! That crocheting looks amazing! I just learned how to crochet this year at my school's knitting club (I work at an elementary school). I'm still really inexperienced, but I want to improve over summer break.

You will! It's really basic once you get the hang of it. Amigurumi is really easy (especially when you have a pattern) because it's just single crochet stitches.

 

I tried knitting... could never really get the hang of it. Every time I picked up then square I was working on, it would be either tighter or looser or... it just failed :laugh:

Knitting was just too boring, I thought. Luckily we had some teachers experienced in crochet too, and they taught me that instead. All the kids learned knitting only. I hope we continue this club next year!

 

I've got a book on amigurumi crocheting--it came with yarn and a tiny crochet hook too. I haven't looked at it since I've learned--I bought it on a whim a few years ago--so maybe that can be my project now. It's got a ton of very cute projects like donuts and hamburgers and cake.

    • I wish someone like Rod Miller would run for President.   I would even campaign for him.
    • Hey everyone. This is my first post and I figured this would be a good place to start. I've been chewing on this thread for well over a week, and as I am towards the end of book 5 in my first reread, I have a few things that I would potentially change.  These 3 things I feel are connected to some extent.    I should probably mention that I will probably not articulate this nearly as well here as I have in my head over the last week, but I will try.   1. Logain    Ever since we meet him in the Tower after being gentled and Min had her viewing of him, I was rooting really hard for him to have a major part or impact in the story. So obviously it follows that I was pretty disappointed in what became of him. I think he was severely underdeveloped and had so much potential .Maybe having him be the one to defeat Taim during the Last Battle. I really dont think his fulfillment of Min's viewing in AMoL fits with her description in FoH ( glory above all men). He does get a bit of redemption with his actions at the end.   2. A powerful male channeler as a sidekick to Rand   I understand that Mat and Perrin kind of fill this role( and maybe even Nynaeve to a certain extent) but I always wished Rand had a sidekick that he could confide in and share his experiences with.   This is where I think points 1 and 3 tie in.   3. One of the Forsaken flipping   In the first few books, its somewhat of a common theme that "No one is so lost that he cannot be brought to the Light" or some several iterations of that.  Naturally, Asmodean was a prime candidate for that.  I think Lanfear and Moridin were as well, but to a lesser extent and for different reasons.   It seemed like Jordan was leading towards Asmodean having a much bigger role before his thread was cut.   With the emphasis on redemption early on in the series, I think this would have been a great avenue to explore in regards to the Forsaken.   Even if Asmodean didnt survive until the end, I think having him eventually flip and maybe dying doing something heroic to save Rands' life or of Rands' companions would have had a nice touch. Having a former Forsaken at Rands side doing battle would have been epic.     To be fair, I am happy with WoT how it is and I dont necessarily think that these suggestions would make the series better.   They could very well break it for all I know.  These are are just things I remember wishing and hoping for when I first read through the series.
