Less Than Perfect - Pink Piglet

I must admit that little pink piggy here is not very well crocheted. There are big gaps here and there that would make any expert crocheter cringe. However, despite all the imperfections, I didn't throw it away cos I like how this piglet looks - it's big ears & smiling eyes. I call this 缺陷美!

Oh, and this lucky piggy does not have weight problems too.

Look, it's a long-legged slim beauty! Ha!

Come to think of it, I've never thrown away any of the things I made including those crafting mishaps. Yes, of course there are crafting mishaps - like everything else in life, sometimes the crafts turn out in forms other than those I envisaged. But I still keep them just because I made them with love - my passion for crafting. Maybe someday I'll show them to you but are you strong enough to stomach them, I wonder... :D

Remember my trip to Daiso a couple of months back? Well, little pink piggy here was crocheted with the S$2 yarn I bought there. I still have a big ball of that pink yarn left, wonder what I should make next...

Have you seen this guy?

His name is "Warumono" aka "The Bad Guy", wanted by the authorities for committing this crime:

Any member of the public who has information about this fugitive should contact Inspector Alcy of The Craft Precinct immediately.

Warumono is extremely adorable *ahem* I mean abominable.

Do not, I repeat DO NOT, attempt to confront him directly as he's crafty and highly capable of stealing your ♥heart♥ away...

For more doses of cuteness *ahem* er I mean information, please read "The Bad Book".


Er...You looking for me?...

Socks & Whatnots

Many weeks back, I bought 2 pairs of socks (pink & grey) from this lady who sells them on some weekends at the central market. She does not have a proper shop but just sets up some tables outside other shops along the walkway, not a legal operation I guess. I asked for long grey socks & she found me an ugly pair which I bought anyway as I could not find other nicer ones. Anyway, the socks cost only S$1 a pair, so can't complain.

I didn't buy those socks for wearing but for crafting purposes. I wanted to experiment making a sock animal...this:

A Schnauzer!

*Hi, I'm Schnauzie*

I thought Schnauzie turned out pretty nicely. Really, I hadn't thought so while I was sewing it though, probably because I disliked the ugly grey socks in the first place & didn't think it'll work out.

In the meantime, I also made a bone bracelet & 2 rings. But as you can see above, Schnauzie has claimed the bone bracelet & is happily wearing it as a collar now. :)

Well, now that I'm left with one pink sock, I need more grey ones to make another Schnauzer...

...Even Schnauzie here thinks so too & is urging me to get started...

...& so I headed back to the central market in search of the sock lady but alas, no luck. She was not there the past few weekends. Hmm...when will you be back sock lady? I can't very well use those worn ones with toe jam on them, can I (oh, gross!)? Dear Schnauzie would never agree, you know...
