I love them. Have you considered doing a Bub? Such a charming zombie.

Funny you should say that, I am working on Bub and Dr Logan right now.  Check out my knitted Shaun of the Dead, if you haven't seen it already (these things get around fast!)

Well, I got my stuff all the way from Portsmouth NH, take a look:



amongst the goodies were these two homemade CD's of local music and photographs



this cool handmade postcard:



and this charming monkey pencil topper:



there were lots of other things, including a menu for a delicious looking local eaterie, a monkey window sticker and lots of local info including programmes from the theatre where my partner works.  If you look in the top photo, you can just see a copy of 'The Wire', a local magazine from Portsmouth that by CRAZY coincidence features one of my photos of the knitted zombies I made for the zombie swap.  Crazy, huh?
Anyway, this swap was awesome.  I really loved learning about someone else's home town.

3  zombies! in Knitting: Completed Projects by spyderbaby on: October 23, 2005 07:37:33 AM
I made these for the zombie swap, and have held off posting pics because my partner has not yet received them.  But she's gone on vacation, and gave me her blessing to post pictures while she was away, so here goes:







you can see more pics here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/electricbiscuit/tags/dawnofthedead/

and read my blog entry about why this was such a labour of love, here: http://electricbiscuitonline.blogspot.com/2005/10/dawn-of-knitted-dead.html

Thanks for the compliments, and I'm SO glad you like it teamwang!  The whole picture was made up of tiny chips of gravel - you can't see it in the picture, but here's a close up:

haha awesome!!  It's great to see more Mr Danglies, and I'm delighted to see that they are carrying on the musical tradition of Mr Dangly himself.  While I'm at it, I must post a picture of jess hutch's (www.jesshutch.com) Ms Dangly, so you can all marvel at her sophisticated glamour.


More Mr Danglies! More! More! More!

I got my pic back from teamwang.  Here is the before:

and here it is after:


The Kraken Awakes!  Woo hoo!  It's now a pirate ship in the throes of a violent storm, navigating icebergs and being terrorised by the terrible Kraken and a giant shrimp.  I love it.  My picture really doesn't do it justice - teamwang, if you have a better one, please post it!
