Extended Weekend Project: Happy Birthday T!

It was my friend's birthday last weekend and I was working hard to finish a project...which didn't really get done until today. Sorry T! But it's finally done and I have to say I really like it! She had asked me one day, jokingly, to make her an angel-devil type thing at which I thought, "that's probly the oddest thing I can do." But knowing it was her birthday coming up, I took a shot at it and it materialized into a really cute angel/devil:

I started her out with her body and slapped on some wings and horns and attempted to do some hair, which came out pretty cute! I thought she could look more angelic with a white dress, but then realized she looked too angelic, and made an awesome removable devil's cape, which kind of reminds me of a dracula cape (vampire amigurumi is coming!). The cape comes off and around the wings, which I thought is a super cute detail. The pictures don't really show the gold detailing of the halo and pitchfork, but it's there! I saw this yarn at Loopy Yarns and thought it would be perfect for a devilish halo!

Hope you like it!

A Spoonful of Vinegar

Hopefully everyone had as tasty a July 4th as I did. It was packed full of wonderful friends, barbecue and oh so tasty ribs at the annual Naperville ribfest! There's no doubt about it, the Pigfoot stand always steals the show! And now for some vinegar:

This one annoyed me too much. There was no way I could show a double bond in a cute fashion so it really just looks like a normal one (omg faux pas!) and hopefully the positioning of it is enough. And the steric hindrance is bothersome, but I thought it would look like a more cohesive smile-y molecule to make it extremely non-energy efficient. *sigh* No one said crocheted chemistry was easy.

CH3CH2OH aka Ethanol

Some more molecular cuteness. This is what's floating in your alcoholic beverage:

Its quite annoying to make sure the bonding angles are at least slightly accurate and positioning atoms to make sure it can sit in a cute way. It's not quite equatorial, but I tried my best, and at least it looks like a dancing ethanol!
