Practicing my scales

I’m sure you’ve all missed me for the whole week I didn’t post – I was enjoying some much needed RNR so I went off grid for a bit.

But it wouldn’t be a Lulu holiday if I didn’t return with some amazing new project to show off to y’all!

As previously mentioned, April is anniversary time for me and my brilliant gift from my other half was some anodized aluminium scales. This probably sounds quite dull to those who have no idea what they are, but the things you can do with them look freakin’ incredible! They’re basically metal scales – like what you think of when you think dragon scales, for example. Usually they’re used with metal jump rings to create armour, but me being me, found out you can also crochet with them!

These took me roughly a week to do – people who’ve done this previously crochet the whole thing, but I only crocheted the scale section and did a black lace back instead. I’m thinking about experimenting with this, doing fabric over crochet or maybe leather instead. Anyway, it looks fantastic and makes a rattling noise when I move my arms, which is sure to drive my work colleagues mad. Do I care? Not when I look this good!

I’m best described as a jack of all trades type - I have a lot of interests and tend to bounce sporadically from one to another, picking up new ones on the way. Predominantly I make things and read. I do play console games (I think at present I own three four consoles that fight for space), but even then I wouldn’t say I play one type of game more than any other. I’m a big final fantasy fan, but I also like puzzle games and FPS. There are plenty more console games enthusiasts on here though, so I’ll be sticking to reviewing tabletop games. I grew up with a culture of playing board games with my family frequently, especially Hero Quest with my dad. Whenever we have a social gathering, which is usually every other weekend, we inevitably play at least one board game. Then there’s the making of things. My current list of enthusiasms includes crochet, embroidery, clothes making and cosplay, bags, leather work, some jewellry, plushies of all shapes and sizes and some other random bits and pieces. You can read all about my nerd-craft in my blog and if you’re interested and willing to part with some cash, I do take commissions on certain things. If you can think it, I can probably make it out of something - just ask!
