Here are the last of the Christmas presents I made, all pretty different:
This is Sleepy Sam, from Sandra Polley's book, The Knitted Teddy Bear. He's made from 2 shades of Queensland Collection Kathmandu DK. The main color was only supposed to take 1 ball, but I ran out before I finished the last paw, so I had to buy another ball. Argh!
Second is a felted moebius basket from A Second Treasury of Magical Knitting made from Lion Brand Wool, held double-stranded.
And finally I made this Buddha pillow from Knit1 Spring 2007. It's made with 2 shades of Knit Picks Swish DK and has a fabric backing. If you are interested in the chart, you can get it free at the link below, but I would omit 6 stitches of the "background" from either side so that you end up with a square piece. I'm sorry I don't have a full picture of this one, just a partial shothttp://www.knit1mag.com/charts/k1s07-27c.pdf
Thanks so much for looking! More project specs are on my blog if you want them.http://soknitpickygallery.blogspot.com/
