I've gotten hooked into needle felting lately...this is my third (and best so far) project. I've used the instructions from Wool Pets to make both of these guys.



And the blue guy below was my first attempt. Not quite a giraffe or really anything, but I still think he's cute.

3  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Little Chicken - My first project! on: January 21, 2009 04:23:10 PM

This is my first attempt at needle felting. I used the chicken in Wool Pets by Lauri Sharp for a guide. His proportions aren't quite right and adding his bead eyes was a bit of a challenge. Thanks for looking! Tips and tricks are appreciated.

I made one a few weeks ago for my SIL...Here's the tute with pictures I wrote about it:

But, basically, you roll the the diapers and tie them individually. The tie those diapers together. Do that for however many layers you want and then decorate. It's pretty easy, it just takes a while to roll and tie the diapers. I think I ended up using about 80.

I used scotch tape and safety pins to attach the accessories. I safety pinned things Directly to the ribbons and the scotch tape wasn't sticky enough to tear the diapers.

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Kandinsky Inspired Slippers on: January 08, 2009 08:30:27 AM

I wasn't sure if these should be posted in knitting or felting, but I knitted them first, so I put them here. I used the keep away slipper pattern (ravelry) and then used wool roving I got a Hobby Lobby to needle felt the polka dot things on and add the thrums. They're warmer than socks and fit perfectly! I only increased up to 24sts so they weren't too wide.

That is quite amazing. At first I was like, "ugh, real dog fur, creepy". but it's really really cool and looks exactly like the furs' original owner
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Wiggle Fingerless Gloves :: With Pattern on: December 02, 2008 08:15:20 AM



I was bored one day, so I made these up. Here's the pattern....it's the first time i've written one out, so please respond with corrections!

Wiggle Fingerless Mitts

Yarn: Worsted weight and soft. I used Berroco Ultra Alpaca. It took much less than one skein.
Needles: Size 6 dpns.

CO 44 sts an join rnd, careful not to twist
R1: (p1, k4) 4 times. p1. work in 1x1 rib, starting with a knit st, to the end of the round. Repeat this rnd 1 more time.

R3: ( p1,C4B, p1, k4) 2x. p1. work in 1x1 rib, starting with a knit st, to the end of the round.
R4: work the same as rnd 1.

R5: Work in cable panel pattern as follows:

1: (p1, k4, p1, C4F) 2x. p1. work rest of round in stockinette.
2: (p1, k4) 4 times. p1. work rest of round in stockinette.
3: (p1, C4B, p1, k4) 2x. p1. work rest of round in stockinette.
4: work same as round 2

Repeat these 4 rounds until you're ready to place the thumb. for me, that was at 4 inches.

Thumb: For the right hand, work across the cable panel. K2. Using waste yarn, k7; slip these sts back to left needle and k them again using working yarn. Continue working the rest of the round in pattern.

For the left hand, work the round you're on until 9 sts remain on the left needle. Using waste yarn, k7; slip these sts back to left needle and k them again using working yarn. K2.

After setting up to make the thumb, work in pattern for another 2 inches and BO. Almost done!

Finish the Thumb:
Remove the waste yarn and place resulting live sts on two double-point needles. There will be 7 sts below the opening and 6 sts above. Attach yarn and k the 7 sts on lower needle; using a second needle, pick up and k 2 sts (I wrap the picked up sts. to help avoid holes) in the space between the upper and lower needle, k first 3 sts from upper needle; using a third needle, k remaining 3 sts from upper needle and pick up (and wrap, if desired) and k 2 sts in space between this needle and lower needle. 17 sts.

K 4 rounds. BO and weave in ends.

Ta Da!

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: mr dangly - knitted monkey (with pattern) on: October 09, 2008 04:29:43 PM

We all know that it's not the funky in the monkey, but the angle of the dangle  Wink

I loved knitting this pattern. It was so much fun. I knit it in the round and it went really fast. I loved the yarn I used too...O-wool Balance. I used leftovers from a hat I made and it was just enough. (about half a ball of each color) And I made his eyes using french knots...the intended recipient is a baby, so no chokeable buttons for this guy!

Thank you for the pattern!
