1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Snowy Knitted Owl on: February 28, 2012 11:24:16 AM
Hi there!  I finished this little guy a week ago and wanted to let you have a peek.  He is nice and snuggly filled with fiberfill and a few handfuls of beans in the bottom which help him stay up.  I can't wait to see how my friend's new baby likes him.  He has only stitched details, so there's no choking hazard - hooray!

Here she blows!  This is the last one I made and it came out pretty well:

The dog enjoys her company:

And lastly, here she is with the octopus (they'll go to siblings)

Let me know what you think of this last one (for now anyway!)

Ok, my niece was quite happy with her seahorse and actually demanded that I make her another one so that she'd have a "friend."  How cute is that?

I'll show you:

He loved it!  Hooray!  And everyone was very impressed with all the Christmas toys I knitted.

Thanks! =blush= I'm so glad you all like him. 

I brought him to work yesterday and folks seemed to enjoy playing with him since his tenacles have pipecleaners inside and are posable.  I can't wait for Christmas myself now...

I would highly recommend getting this book by Hansi Singh, all the creatures are coming out even better than I imagined.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitted Octopus on: December 21, 2011 09:47:33 AM
Ok, this is my third knitted amigurumi and I think it's the best so far!  I can't wait to give this to my little nephew!  Just one more to make before Christmas and at this rate, I should have them all done on time Smiley

He's a very frisky fellow!

He likes to take a ride on the Loch Ness Monster

He thinks a hug is just a strangle you haven't finished yet

I can't get enough

Hope you like him too - let me know what you think.  He's for a 4 year old little boy.

Thanks so much everyone.  I had a blast making this and plan to do at least one more in a different color.  I've also started the octopus pattern from the same book with a Noro yarn in greens, blues and purples. 

I wish I didn't have to work 8 hours a day so I would have more time for crafting!

It's darling - I would totally wear it.  Any chance you can make a knit pattern too?

Thanks!  I bought the pattern on etsy from "Cheezombie":


It knit up like a dream and I did 2 slight mods - I made the horns by doing 4 rows of i-cord and I did a crochet picot edge for the "mane."

Well, the loch ness monster was so fun to make for my nephew, that I decided to make a cute seahorse for my little niece too.

Here she is in all her snuggly glory (pattern by Cheezombie):
