Is the scientific name for a new variety found of the hansigurumi subspecies.





Be careful, she steals fries.

2  I made fishy Tawashi! in Knitting: Completed Projects by sara_dippity on: March 31, 2008 10:39:24 AM

This was so quick, so fun, and I love the pattern. Tawashi are pot scrubbers, unlike dishcloths which recommend cotton, acrylic is recommended for abrasiveness. I'm sure I don't have very abrasive ones though, only acrylic in my stash is Simply Soft for amigurimi and other toys Smiley.

3  A party of peeps in Knitting: Completed Projects by sara_dippity on: March 24, 2008 01:23:03 PM

I made these from the peeps pattern, only made them more marshmallowy by having the head taper to an icord and sewing into place. Eyes are duplicate stitch with brown. More on my blog.

4  Hello Kitty and Kodama in Knitting: Completed Projects by sara_dippity on: January 29, 2008 12:40:27 PM
I am so tickled pink at the completion of this project/pattern that I'm actually annoying myself.

This is the main design for the body type and I also made my fave:

If anyone else wants to join in the fun, I put the pattern on my blog Smiley.

6  Forever Friends Fawn in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by sara_dippity on: October 18, 2007 07:53:22 AM
Or as my son calls him, "Bambi." No spots, yet. I had to finish it in time for his birthday and my hands have been stiff and sore. So the spots will be done this weekend.



And, true to his nature, my son will absolutely not see a camera without trying to jump in the shot.

7  Soot Sprites, Hello Kitty, ice cozy and sea turtle (6 images) **with pattern** in Knitting: Completed Projects by sara_dippity on: August 21, 2007 08:32:07 AM
I've been busy. So, here's what I've done (plus a few dishcloths and almost done with a Christmas stocking).


Sootsprites (creatures in the movie Spirited Away) ~ 1 strand Caron Simply Soft, one strand Patons Cha Cha, size 3 dpns. Konpeito candy from J-list, it's actually supposed to be what they are eating in the movie. I splurged on it for a special fun day with my four year old where we watched the movie, then I presented him with his sprite and we fed them their candy. One without a clip for my son and one with a clip for my backpack. Like the action shot on my lovely backpack? I carry that thing every day and I'm pushing 30. Ok, I'm 31.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Pattern

-Caron Simply Soft in black (or any black worsted yarn)
-Patons Cha Cha in black (or other eyelash yarn but I really do recommend this one for the best effect)
-size 3 or 4 dpns, set of 4 or a circular (if you can manage one this tiny)
-two white buttons (no idea what the style is called) with irises painted on in black and sealed with clear fingernail polish, dried for at least an hour)
-a very small amount of stuffing. Two cottonballs might even work, or some of the yarn itself.

On the worsted yarn, strand the two buttons, slip toward the yarn ball.
Cast on 3 stitches, one each needle, holding the two yarns together as one.
1 ~ Inc in each st
2 ~ *Inc, k1* 3x
3 ~ *k1, inc, k1* 3x
4 ~ *inc, k2, inc* 3x
5 ~ K 1, slide a button up, p1, k1, slide a button up, p1, k to end
6-9 ~ k
10 ~ *dec, k2, dec* 3x
11 ~ *k1, dec, k1* 3x
stuff (firmly. Understuffing can result in shape loss as I discovered on my son's toy)
12 ~ *dec, k1* 3x
13 ~ dec in each st
Use a drawstring closure to bind off. Leave the tail long and use to sew on a clip if you wish.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Ice cozy ~ Lion Brand Cotton Ease (lovely spongy feeling, like I'm super surprised at how much I love it, I think I'll make a tee with some) in "Lake" color on size 5 dpns (I knitted a rectangle for the bottom, then picked up the stitches and did one purl row, then knit in the round, eyelets for the bow). Mom wraps her ice packs in paper towels to keep the condensation off of her food, and she gave me some packs for my birthday, pre wrapped in paper towels. Well, I just can't justify buying paper towels, I think they are too wasteful and prefer reusable things. So I had the same paper towels on my ice packs for two semesters at school. Finally it hit me to make cozys. I'm making some for mom as well, this is just the first of about a dozen between us.


Kitty ~ Caron Simply Soft, sixe 4 dpns. Her bottom is full of polyfill beads, only they are special. They are rose scented, from a potpouri isle. Yup, her butt smells like roses. Wish mine did. That would be cool.


Turtle ~ From Kath Dalmeny's World of Knitted Toys, yarn is Red Heart Wallmart special (don't throw things please), size 5 straight needles. Try as I might, I couldn't find a reason to use dpns. My son is in this shot because he became jealous at me taking so many pictures of my knitting and kept jumping in front of the camera, so I compromised. Actually I'm not surprised he did this, you should have seen him jumping in front of people (strangers) at the zoo trying to take pictures of their family. Camera ham.

8  I need to find this bunny.... in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by sara_dippity on: July 24, 2007 12:07:53 PM
So a few weeks ago I did something dumb. I saved a picture I found on the web of a bunny I liked. Well, I like it so much I want to make it. It looks exactly like an old pet of mine and I must have him! Now I know I could figure it out, but if it is a pattern, I thought it might be nice to buy the original pattern. I also have got to know the yarn used because I can not find the exact right shade on anything locally. So, have you seen this bunny?



Edit~ Nevermind. I finally googled the name of the pic, not just "knitted bunny" and found it. I must cry now for there is no pattern. It's so perfect, any other will not do. Off to try contacting crafty person...

9  My Knitty Nautie in Knitting: Completed Projects by sara_dippity on: July 17, 2007 09:01:11 AM
So for my first shared project here, I present my very first Nautie!



And here is the exact same Nautie after she's had a cup of coffee and gotten ready for a day at the office!!!


I've always been amazed at what a little makeup can do.
