Finished Project & Happy New Year!

First post of 2014, yay! (And it didn't happen in February either, lol!)

Just wanted to wish all my followers & fellow bloggers a Happy New Year and I hope you gals and guys have a kickass 2014. :)

Also wanted to share a project I just finished knitting. It's going to be a surprise present for someone...can't say who in case she reads this (though I doubt it!) lol! xD

It's a scarf from the game Rune Factory 4 for Nintendo 3DS. It's been kind of my addiction lately and also the reason why this blog has gone mostly neglected. ;___; sorry, friends!

In the game, your character can knit a cute little scarf for friends/lovers/etc. So I decided to make one myself, inspired by a teensy tiny pixelated game sprite. I don't think you actually see this scarf in game or in any character art. Even if you equip it, I don't think you can see it on the character because it's not a head accessory. Lame! But anyway.... see the comparison below:



Cute huh?

I think there's another scarf which becomes available for crafting later on in the game, though I have not yet encountered it.

Yay for nerd knitting. xD (I also got the "Knits for Nerds" book! I am gonna make a sweater vest from one of its patterns!)

I also plan to knit some UNIF replica dresses in 2014. And possibly some other garments...we shall see! (and also an amigurumi of Wooley the sheep from Rune Factory.)

Speaking of RF... I got a doujinshi of Frey x Arthur which I am in the (very slow, very tedious) process of scanlating! Here is a sneak peak below:







(Feel free to open the images in a new tab if the text is too tiny to read on my blog, lol.)

Anyway, I will post more pages as I finish them! If you are interested in helping me scanlate this doujin please comment below with your e-mail and I will give you access to the raw scans on my Dropbox. ^___^

Love you guys!

  2. Not sure if I'm more excited about the actual scarf or the fact that rpg characters are handknitting. I think I need to start adding skillpoints to my accessories!

    1. Haha hell yesss! I changed my Ravelry pic immediately when I was playing the game a week or so ago and noticed one of the sprites of the witchy looking character, Dolce, and she was actually knitting in the sprite/character picture! I was like HOLY CRAP. Must take a photo of that. I wish I could do screencaps in Rune Factory like I can with Animal Crossing because it would have come out in higher resolution/better quality vs. taking pic with my crappy phone camera. Oh well. I am sure there's probably concept art of her knitting too I just haven't stumbled across it yet. Makes me want to cosplay her all the more. ^___^

      (And my sister informs me that there's 1 more hand-knit accessory you can craft at a later level in the game, so I am excited for that, hehe!)
