A pipe cleaner is such a good idea! How cool would that be, posable!

Challenge: April Detention
House; ravenclaw
Project;
Tom is on as Herbie in Gypsy this week (he is normally in the ensemble with a couple of small parts, but he understudies Herbie) so I made him these sweet smelling herb jars (well, I didn't make the jars, just the little stand and labels and card) to wish him luck (he'll need it - Imelda Staunton pays mana rose so he'll be kissing umbridge all week!!)

Thanks guys :-) I'll write up a pattern and post it - but that well be after my finals exam since I'm in full on revision mode till then (4th June)

something like a giraffe could be cool, you could colourwork the pattern and make a couple of those horn things, maybe stuffed!

Pandas are harder though, since the face coloring is really the distinctive feature and there's no face to the hoods - but you could do a white hoods with black ears, that would be cute. Distinctive ears or things on the head are the real key for instant recognition :-)

Arr, thanks guys :-) I do get  lot of ewok comments when I wear mine, I've got it marked as a handy last minute fancy dress if I ever need one!

It is my own pattern I guess, though I totally stole the idea from one I saw on Pinterest, and I sort of make it up as I go along. I'll write it up and post it here in the next couple of days since people are interested :-)

A dog could work, like a spaniel type thing :-) thanks!

So, I saw these animal hoods a few times in Pinterest and decided to get stuck in. I use a super chunky yarn, so they knit up super fast, and they are really simple.
Bibi, above, wearing a mouse hood, later stolen by Nannie Gail...

Joined by me wearing a brown bear, and Otto wearing Fox.

Here's a better shot of mine; this was the first one, you can see by comparing to above that side then I started grafting the top, and I now also often add a couple of stripes to the bottom of the cowl bit


They often get stolen by parents/grandfolk - here's Gene's mummy wearing his grey bear, with Edie as a rabbit


And a black bear (suitable to go with school uniform)


Polar bears are also popular, but I can't seem to find any photos!
 I'm thinking next I might try a frog, like with bulgy eyes instead of ears? What do you think? Any other animal suggestions gratefully received - I get asked to do these all the time and am bored of repeating the same ones....

Gratuitious extra photo of them being unwrapped (bibi's mouse, otto's Fox, Roman's cat) - how darn cute are my nephews and niece!!
