I love seeing all the different nekkid men/women you're making! Can't wait to try out the pattern for myself... and the tattoos look wicked cool.

Aha! Elaineofshalott is right, so I'm definitely going to change that. And to think I'm taking French... whoooops!

Thanks for all the positive comments!

He's a lobster, and I call him François. You can knit one and call it whatever you please - the pattern is here:

François might want to watch out for these guys...



François may be gone come Christmas Eve - lobster bisque is a family tradition!

Well, here is my Mr. Bunny - actually, I've decided it's a girl. Whatcha gonna do?



This is Charlotte. She was made over a span of a few days with Misti Chunky Alpaca (huge splurge, but worth it for the softness!) and a fleecy white boucle yarn for her tail (a homemade pompom) and the lining of her ears.



Her face was "embroidered" with a thin black yarn (I think it was Simply Soft) because I couldn't find any black embroidery floss. I also spent some time looking for glass eyes and sorting through buttons, but ultimately I'm pleased with how the yarn turned out.



I modified the pattern quite a bit. Because the yarn was so thick, I used size 9 needles. I started with 16 stitches, but increased by 8 stitches and I believe only ended up with 48 (or maybe 56) stitches to do the bulk of the body. I decreased back down to 16 stitches to do the neck. I followed instructions for the most part in making up the head/face but took some liberties in how I rounded the back of the head, picked up stitches, and did the decreases. I had to keep telling myself, "no matter what you do, it will look like SOMETHING when you're finished!"

The arms I made longer and then did a few increase rounds to get that paw-type shape. The legs are finished with a kitchener stitch, which I really liked. For the ears I made up how to decrease so it looked more or less even on both sides, then just knit the linings by fitting it to the inside and fixing things when I sewed them in.

Overall, it was a great project and I'm really happy with how it turned out. Thanks for the pattern!

I think I could fit in that bag! The dragonfly really makes is, as does the detailed stitching. It's beautiful.

Oh man, I'm in love. Those faces are so sweet, as are the little hearts on the letters. What a great, easy idea. Now I have to check out those cupcakes...
