Inspired by http://mochimochiland.com/ and her teeny tiny knits, I created this little bluebird. He is about 1.5 inches tall.

2  Baby Ducky in Knitting: Completed Projects by panther_012003 on: September 20, 2010 08:12:26 AM

I created this Ducky for a friend of mine who is having a baby this winter. If you've ever looked for gender neutral baby gifts, you know it's hard! Duck and frog themed items are always a safe bet though.

I didn't follow a pattern, though I was inspired by a bluebird that I knit earlier this year (also no pattern). It's pretty easy to wing it (pun intended) if you know how to knit a sphere.

I wrote a bit more about my duck, bluebird and some other knitting projects on my blog if you're interested:

3  Santa's Workshop in CHALLENGE 46 ENTRIES by panther_012003 on: January 03, 2010 03:42:44 PM
My cousins, sisters and I got together to create this winter wonderland. It took about 6 hours from concept to creation. We started with a giant piece of cardboard and ended up with a scene of Santa's workshop surrounded by an igloo, hockey pond, ski hill and santa himself in his sleigh. We had a ton of fun making it and a huge mess in the process.

Here you can see the unwrapped presents going into the machine and coming out the other side all pretty.

Our hockey players on the pond:

One of the skiiers was "injured" so we had to make him a rescue team and gurney:

A closeup of the sugar cube igloo, penguins and polar bear:

Gingerbread Santa and reindeer:

And a close-up of the presents in his sleigh:

And last but not least our goofy gumdrop snowman:

In case you are wondering, the googly eyes are candy sprinkles! Thank you for looking.

5  Li'l Duffsters in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by panther_012003 on: August 06, 2009 04:54:49 PM
So I decided to try my hand at making some "creatures" and I came up with these little guys. They were named Li'l Duffsters by my friend because I made them out of leftover felt from our duff beer costume a couple of years ago (see below where I am being elbowed in the face by my husband). Meet Eugene, Mathilde and Waldorf (in that order)!

6  Mr. Kiwi Bird in Knitting: Completed Projects by panther_012003 on: April 27, 2009 08:39:16 AM
As my obsession with knitting cute plush animals progresses, I find myself gathering patterns of all sorts and irritating my husband with piles of yarn stuffed into every available space in the house. I made this delightful critter for a good friend who has made her home in New Zealand. I found the pattern here: http://bittersweetblog.wordpress.com/2007/07/09/crazy-kiwis/

Here are a few photos of him surveying the melting Minnesota snow before he gets shipped off to his native land.

I found this pattern at http://electricbiscuitonline.blogspot.com/2005/06/clone-mr-dangly.html

Mr. Dangly was too cute not to knit! Here he is, in purple:

8  Homestar Runner Inspired Cozies in CHALLENGE 30 ENTRIES by panther_012003 on: September 04, 2008 09:56:53 PM
I have been on a beer cozie craze lately so when I saw this challenge I knew I had to enter. These may not be ironic, but I think they're fun.

The Cheat and Marzipan ( I know Marzipan looks scary )

9  Meathead hat (aka pointy blue elf hat) in Knitting: Completed Projects by panther_012003 on: August 09, 2008 07:51:09 PM
I was on a knitting binge this weekend, so among other things I decided to make this. The pattern is from the book Knitalongs by Larisa Brown and Martin John Brown and has a ton of cute, easy patterns with stories that go along with them. The story behind this meathead hat is pretty interesting - read the book to find out!  Wink

I just happened to have these fabulous oversized buttons and some bright blue yarn just waiting to be turned into something, so here's how it turned out - I love it!

10  pink umbilical cord hat and matching mittens in Knitting: Completed Projects by panther_012003 on: March 10, 2008 05:14:15 PM
I had this tiny ball of beautiful pink and yellow wool yarn. I needed something small to knit so I decided to try out this this umbilical cort hat - found in my Stitch n' Bitch book - even though I don't have any baby to give it to. It turned out really cute, and I still had some yarn left so I made these little thumbless mittens to match (pattern found here http://knitlink.blogspot.com/2005/10/berry-blue-thumbless-mittens.html). Without a test subject, I'm not sure, they could be completely the wrong sizes  Huh  but oh well. I'm going to keep them for someday when I have a baby and then force it to wear them.
