A is for Apple.

With this line in the tile I always remember a song from my teens “A is for apple, B is for balloon, C is for crayons, D is for drums!” and then it goes off. I’m sure many of you know it too. ^_^ Although my ‘song’ here starts with the same, that’s pretty much where the similarities end as well.

As I have had some trouble every once in awhile on picking the ideas on what to crochet, I decided to get myself a little help – the alphabet. I’m trying to make everythin from A to Z. At first I was thinking on adding a topic to it as well (ie animals or desserts etc) but then I decided just an alphabet will be just fine. This project might also work a bit for learning words wether in English or in Estonian. 😀

I have actually managed to crochet up stuff until F and G is a WIP so there will be others here soon. It’s just that I tend to take photos of a bunch of things rahter than everything in separate right after I finish them (although that’s what I’d like to do more).

The other reason I put this project in the making is that I’m trying to use the yarns that I already own. Usually when I get asked to make something or have a specific idea of my own I can’t find a suitable yarn in my stash and there is actually quite a lot of yarn in there! So I decided I needed to do something for that and a project like this is going to help me at least somewhat (amigurumies don’t usually take up too much yarn at all).

At first I was thinking on making my alpahbet in kawaii or putting a face on everything for extra cuteness but then I decided to leave everything as is, all ‘natural’.

Technical stuff: the yellow is a 100% cotton that says “COTTON” on the label. I don’t know the manufacturer or anything but it feels rather soft and nice. The green yarn is also 100% cotton a yarn called “LĂžve SOFT” from HP Garn (it’s Danish). I know I bought them both from the same store and I even might have an idea for the green one as I have two of that but I have no idea any more.  The stem is I think from Schachenmayr nomotta Cotton Eco that I used the very last piece of for making it. I used the 1.75 mm hook again and filled with some pillow stuffing.

Do you have any ideas what would be the next to come up? I already gave a few hints on what they’re not. 😛

A nagu Õun! KĂ”lab loogiliselt, eks!? Tegelikult ma seda projekti alustades mĂ”tlesin pikalt, kumba tĂ€hestikku kasutada, aga otsustasin siis inglise keelse jaoks. St jÀÀvad Ă€ra kĂ”ik tĂ€pitĂ€hed, aga tulevad sisse mĂ”ned meie jaoks vÔÔramad tĂ€hed. Nagu nĂ€ha ka sĂ”nad sellest tulenevalt on vĂ”etud eeskujuks inglise keelest. Aga see polegi ju kĂ”ige olulisem? TĂ€htis on see, mis vĂ€lja tuleb ja tĂ”tt-öelda, ma tĂ€itsa tahaks juba tervet seda tĂ€hestikku valminuna nĂ€ha! ^_^

Kuna mul on tihtilugu olnud raskusi leida jĂ€rgmist projekti, mille kallal töötada vĂ”i siis nende paljude ideede seast selle Ă”ige vĂ€lja valimisega, siis tuli mĂ”te vĂ”tta endale abiline – tĂ€hestik. Nagu öeldud on ta siin inglise keelne, tĂ€hed A – Z. Alguses mĂ”tlesin, et vĂ”tan lisaks juurde ka teema (loomad, magustoidud vm), aga lĂ”puks leidsin, et lihtsalt tĂ€hestik on tĂ€iesti piisav. Lisaks kĂ”igele muule aitab see projekt ka sĂ”nu Ă”ppida, inglise ja eesti keeles! 😀

Lisaks Ôunale on mul tegelikult valmis tööd kuni F tÀheni ja G on hetkel pooleli st varsti on siin juba jÀrgmisi ka nÀha. Asi on lihtsalt selles, et ma kipun töid pildistama hulgakesi koos, mitte kohe pÀrast valmimist, nagu mulle tegelikult rohkem meeldiks.

Teine pĂ”hjus, miks see projekt kĂ€iku lĂ€ks on, et vĂ€hendada oma lĂ”ngavarusid. Pisikesed amigurumid ei ole selleks kĂŒll kĂ”ige kiirem variant, aga algus seegi. Tavaliselt kui keegi palub mul midagi teha vĂ”i tuleb endal konkreetne mĂ”te, siis sobivat lĂ”nga ju kunagi kohe olemas ei ole. Olgugi, et tegelikult on mul seda lĂ”nga juba ĂŒsna piisavalt kogunenud. ÜhesĂ”naga otsustasin midagi ette vĂ”tta ja selle projektiga algust teha.

Korra oli ka mÔte kÔik kawaii-stiili teha ehk siis eriti nunnu nÀgu kÔigele ja kÔigile peale panna, aga lÔpuks otsustasin, et mitte, see kord on kÔik nii, loomulik. 

Tehnilisest poolest on kollane lĂ”ng 100% puuvillane nimega COTTON. Tootja kohta ei ole seal midagi kirjas, kuigi iseenesest on tegu ĂŒsna pehme ja mĂ”nusa lĂ”ngaga. Roheline on samuti puuvillane, nimega “LĂžve SOFT” HP Garnilt. MĂ”lemad on kunagi Karnaluksist ostetud, rohelise jaoks vĂ”is mul kunagi isegi mingi idee olla, kuna seda on mul tervelt kaks tokki, aga enam ju ei tea. Vars peaks olema Schachenmayr nomotta Cotton Eco lĂ”ngast. See oli kĂ”ige-kĂ”ige viimane seda tooni antud lĂ”ng, mis mul alles veel oli. Konks oli ikka see hea 1.75 mm.

Mis arvate, mis jĂ€rgmiste tĂ€htedega tulla vĂ”iks? Paar vihjet juba andsin, mis nad ei ole. 😛
