i am completely in love with my circulars.
so, my first real project on circulars was this voodoo doll
which now resides on my purse. and since the first was so fun, i had to knit another!
this one looks admittedly more human (maybe its the fact she's not bright red...) though i may have gone overboard a bit on the hair. next time im not using yarn...
next, she needed some clothes, so i whipped this up.
you cant see the details there, but in the middle and on the bottom, i did an alternating seed stitch, just to make things less boring. and, yes, since its stockinette, the bottom edge does roll up.
this was all fine and dandy, but i felt adventurous one night and decided she needed something more....something like a coat....
so in the end, this is what i got.
of course, this opens up so many new doors for me and my knitting. imagine all the possibilities! of course, i'll have to work out the kinks, especially on places like her shoulders, but for my first forays into circular knitting, im pretty happy about my results!
The gals over at the Punk Knitters LJ community wanted a tutorial, so i put this together. http://www.livejournal.com/community/punk_knitters/678153.html
hope you like it.
