Hey! I have been lurking for months on this thread now, meaning to make and post some things but never getting round to it. So having finally finished something for Christmas I am dying to share it, and I know it's not at all to do with this month's theme
, but I am so proud of having finished something! I have no patience or sense of planning so it's an achievement for me. This was a request from my little sister, I've recently started knitting and her first request was for a hat with ears. It was meant to be a cat but ended up a little more wolf-like. Now I just have to have the patience to wait til Christmas to give it to her!!!
Ok so now I go picture crazy:
and in action
see the cosy earflaps?
and I put little ceramic fish beads on the dangly things from the earflaps
Sorry for the terrible, myspace-style photos - I'm away from home without a camera
Also it's late and I have earache, so not looking my best...
the facts: knitted with Jaeger fur (amazing stuff it was discounted in my local yarn shop
) with black "fun foam" for inside the ears. No pattern just random trial and error (lots of error in my case). Super super fluffy.
I hope this post is ok, within the thread rules, not too long etc. it's my first so I'm not sure...
Thanks stoliedina for giving me the motivation to do some Christmas crafting, this thread is so inspiring!
