Crochet Tutorial: Nintendo NES Controller Pixel Blanket

Crochet Tutorial: Nintendo NES Controller Pixel Blanket

486 pixels were stitched over the past few months and each one was made with love. The creation of this pixel blanket was made to be given to Nate in time for his birthday today, March 30th, 2016.

Nate is a video game enthusiast and early on I decided to create something epic for his special day. My idea formulated around a discussion about vintage video games we each played as kids. He loved Zelda, and mentioned the Nintendo NES system as a favorite. Of course, this had me scrambling in my creative way to find the perfect project to bring this favorite retro past-time to life. Behold the creation of the Nintendo NES Controller Pixel Blanket!

Pixel Blanket

I searched the internet for ideas on how to bring my vision to fruition and came across the blog from Repeat Crafter Me who created a Cupcake Pixel Blanket and I went into crazy creative overdrive!!

Pixel Blanket2
I decided to try to graph this project out on paper and found a photo of this controller by just doing a Google Search.  Once the graph was made, it was a series of mathematics calculations to figure out how much each square would equal in a measurement of inches. I wanted the overall size to be about the size of a queen-size bed. The calculations for this blanket equal the equivalent of 54 inches wide x 80 inches long.

Graph Without Buttons/Cord
Once the size was determined, then the calculation of how many pixels of each color would have to be figured out.

Pixel Graph with Buttons and Cord

All these calculations can be found in the pattern below.  Each square has to be individually created based on these initial calculations. It was easiest for me to work color by color. I began with grey, black, red, then lastly white. Once each square was made, I began to lay them out to determine if the vision in my mind was exactly what I pictured. This was the part where I held my breath hoping that I hadn’t made any mistakes in my calculations!  Below you will see the pixels all laid out on the floor.

Pixels laid out on my living room floor


Once the pixels were laid out and my design was satisfactory, the process of sewing these tiny squares was my next major step. Working in rows, I worked my way across first, then down, as shown in the tutorial video. Soon this project began to come together in the perfect work of art I envisioned!

Pixels with Buttons

 I added a few details to enhance this design. Instead of pixels, I crocheted two circles for the buttons on the controller and a crochet chain to emulate a cord coming from underneath the controller going to an invisible console. Once complete, this labor of my love became one of the most amazing creations I have made thus far. It was, by far, the best gift and was received with delight!

Happy Birthday Nate!!

Health Update: A Promise of Hope

This blog is the first part of my birthday gift to you, Nate.

As I start this blog I have to admit that, surprisingly, it is one of the hardest pieces I am writing for a couple of reasons. I have backspaced and deleted enough to the point where, if I were writing in the 1970s, my trashcan would be over flowing with crumpled paper that I keep pulling out of my ancient typewriter. Good thing it is 2016, and several trees are being saved from my inability to focus on how I want to put these thoughts into words.

Gravity

Part of the reason I am having trouble with this blog is because it was the object behind a bit of a disagreement between Nate and me. It was nothing major, just a misunderstanding. I can be feisty and stubborn, but being ill has taught me enough about what is important and what matters, so arguments and fights with anyone are few and far between. So, no worries please.

Secondly, I am hesitant on writing this because, usually, when things go up, they must come down, and that has been my typical health pattern for nearly nine years. I have learned that a lot of things are temporary. As I continue to write about some of the positive things that have been happening with my health, in the back of my mind there is a whisper reminding me of Newton’s Universal Law of Gravity. That pesky law keeps me from getting too comfortable with the status quo. But tonight I am going to ignore that stinking voice so I can write in peace.

Barbie Butt

I had surgery on December 9th, 2015 following a very scary episode of sepsis which landed me in the critical care unit for nearly a week. You can read my last health update here. The surgery was scheduled in hopes to offer me a better chance at not repeating history of sepsis in that area as the risk was so high. All of my physicians concurred that I may not be so lucky ‘next time,’ so I had a removal of my rectal/anal cuff and the surgeons closed my bottom. Essentially I was given what they call a ‘Barbie Butt.’ You can laugh. It’s OK. It’s the truth, and God help us all, we NEED humor. I am 25-years-old and have managed to survive some of the most painfully undignified, frightening, and major health hurdles to end up with this Barbie Butt. Believe me, laughter has helped me so much it’s not even funny…or it is…but it’s not. (You know what I mean!) Without humor I wouldn’t have survived; I promise you that. Having this surgery is better than the alternative. So, I laugh in the face of this *bleep* disease that keeps coming at me. “Go ahead Crohn’s disease, Take my a-hole. I didn’t need it anyway!”

Following surgery, I ended up back in the hospital with another abscess and sepsis scare, but it was minor and with a strong dose of antibiotics, I recovered and was home in time for the holidays. That was crucial because I was about to launch the 365 Days of Granny Squares blog in the New Year. Here I was, sitting in the hospital, trying to figure out if I could orchestrate this project from my hospital bed so it would be ready to go by January 1st. I got lucky. I got to come home. 365 Days of Granny Squares went off without a hitch. Today, it has officially been an entire three months that I have not been hospitalized, and to be honest, that is a near record. The granny squares are helping me keep count! Haha!

The struggle is real

Although it hasn’t been easy, and finding an effective treatment plan for my Crohn’s disease has been like playing roulette, things are beginning to look up.

I struggled for the entire month of January trying to recover my strength. By February, I felt stronger but didn’t feel fully better. I started a new drug treatment six weeks ago that offers a lot of promise. Other than being bothered by a few side effects and minor setbacks, I am hopeful as I have seen some mild improvements *knock on wood*. I have tried so many new drugs and treatments, diets and health regimens, that I started to lose hope after failing so many times, but this time I have to hold on to hope. This time is different. It’s different because there is someone else in my picture besides myself, my friends, and my family. It’s Nate.

Nate

He’s my person

Remember that argument I mentioned we had earlier? Yeah, well, it was because I put him on the spot barraging him with questions about all this health stuff the other night with that not-so-pleasant side of my personality that demands answers about handling life with a sick person. I was probably having a tiny pity-party. There were tears, but I’m over it. Sometimes, in those fleeting, not-so-pretty moments, I feel unlovable, ugly, and scarred from a dozen surgeries and having an ostomy, all THIS worry comes out and gets overwhelming. It is overwhelming living with a terrible disease, so walking into this life by choice and choosing to love someone with these circumstances on their plate is HUGE. It’s a risk, and he did it. He did it for me. He told me I am worth the risk. Me! *insert a million feels here*

Flaws

Presently, I am surrounded by several skeins of yarn and 600 tiny square crocheted pixels for a project I am making for Nate’s birthday gift.

So many mini squares!

I’m not thinking about the ugly side of this disease but about how lucky I am to have that love. For the first time in three months since surgery, I don’t just feel good, but I feel amazing! It has nothing to do with medication, doctors, good lab results, or clinic visits. It has to do with someone who Googled Crohn’s disease so many months ago and spent time reading all about it trying to learn what he could, so he could better understand this disease and what he would be facing with me. I feel amazing because Nate says I “fight like a champ” and I am the strongest person he knows, and guess what? I believe him. I feel amazing because, when he looks at me, he doesn’t see all those scars or my ostomy, and that I feel “broken.” He just sees me. Nadia. The girl I always wanted to be before my body was attacked by this disease.

The future’s so bright, I gotta wear shades

There are a lot of things in life that aren’t fair. Nothing is remotely pretty when fighting against sickness. Chronic illness has taught me how unpredictable life can be. I wish I had that magic crystal ball to see the future, so I could know what is coming, but I don’t. I can recite to you my dream of what I would want to see, if the universe lined up just right to grant me that future. It’s a beautiful private dream. But it is exactly that – just a dream.

One thing I have learned is that I can’t control any of this disease, and the universe has a plan of its own. However, despite all these trials, I have been given this perfectly imperfect life that looks nothing like a perfect dream, and that is OK. Illness was the reason I started to crochet. That led me to create YARNutopia and introduced me to this wonderful crochet community. It has brought me lifelong friendships. It taught me the value of what is truly important, and finally, it navigated my life to cross paths with an extraordinary man who is willing to face that frightening, unknown future by my side. He gave me a pinky promise. That is a promise of HOPE. There are no words that exist to thank someone for a gift that extraordinary. Maybe these undeleted, uncrumpled words can help.

Pinky Promise

Pinky Promise

So when you ask how I am feeling, the truth would be, I feel amazing.

Happy Birthday, Nathan Lyden.

Crochet Tutorial: Mini Square Infant Hat

I’ve decided to dedicate this next week to all things BABY! To start this project, and the ensemble set, I’m making an infant hat first. In keeping with the Granny Square theme (See 365 Days of Granny Squares project), I’ve created this cute little cap that is sure to keep your precious bundle warm.

Continue to follow this series as I will be making booties, a dress, and a security blanket lovey for a very special baby.

Crochet Tutorial: No-Sew Market Bag with Crocheted Edge

The internet is flooded with ways to “go green” and help the environment. Whenever there is a way to help our great planet, I am a big fan of doing what I can! I have run across many how-to videos on ways to convert a t-shirt into a tote bag.

As a huge advocate for the four R’s: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Re-purpose I will show step by step in this photo blog with an accompanying video, a detailed way on how you can do all four in one great project and add in a bit of crochet magic to make this project even more amazing!! We will be Recycling  an old t-shirt and Re-purposing it into a market bag, thus Reducing the amount of plastic bags that go into the landfills. ANDDD, you can Reuse it over and over! Help the environment and look stylish while doing it! It’s a win/win!

Crochet Tutorial: Real Wheel Granny Square

I created this Real Wheel Granny Square design to add to our 365 Days of Granny Squares project. It uses variety of crochet stitches to create a look that reminds me of a wheel or something round!! I hope you enjoy making your square!

A couple disclaimers before you start: Be sure to check your tension and use the correct size hook for your square. I demonstrate with an H-5.00mm crochet hook in the video tutorial, but you can make yours bigger or smaller by using a bigger or smaller hook. Also, if yours turns out wonky when you are finished, you may need to block this square to make it nice and flat.

Crochet Tutorial: Knee-High Socks

Crochet Tutorial: Knee-High Socks

Sometimes I see a photo and consider what it would take to design something into a crochet pattern based on just that-a photo. That is what inspired these floral pastel knee-socks. I was sent the same photo of a pair of knit socks numerous times, and realized that once again, I would need to challenge myself to see what I could do by taking that knit sock concept from a single picture and translate it into crochet. I have to admit this was not an easy task.

First, socks are not easy to begin with. That alone had me hesitating, but knowing myself and how, once faced with a challenge, I don’t back down. I decided to just forge ahead and see where this took me and I was not disappointed.

As the socks took shape, the more excited I became. It took a total of two full days and a lot of long hours of designing and filming to bring you this tutorial. To be honest, I will say that at one point I saw double and almost pulled my hair out trying to troubleshoot how to make this work, but hopefully I have ironed out all the wrinkles to bring you another tutorial that is easy to follow.

I used pastel colors in my pattern but the ideas are endless when it comes to color combinations. I am excited to see your creators choices when making your own pair. These are exceptionally comfortable and fun to wear. In my photos, I have them over a pair of creme color leggings, but around the house these would be so nice to wear with your favorite night shirt or shorts and t-shirt! Have fun creating this fabulous pair of knee-socks!

Below you will see a couple photos of my finished work and then the video tutorial. Below the video shows the written pattern for these socks. Happy Hookin’!
