1  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 90 ENTRIES / Tiny Knit Bluebird on: September 07, 2013 08:55:00 AM
Inspired by http://mochimochiland.com/ and her teeny tiny knits, I created this little bluebird. He is about 1.5 inches tall.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby Ducky 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:

Looking for public places to hang out and knit. Does anyone have any good suggestions? General Twin Cities area.
4  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 46 ENTRIES / Santa's Workshop 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  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Can I cast off from the beginning of my project? on: December 05, 2009 03:13:41 PM
This is sort of dumb, but I made mittens and one thumb is a bit shorter than the other. At the time, I thought it wouldn't bother me but now I would like to fix it. My dilemma is that I do not have any more of the yarn left. I only need a tiny bit more, so my only thought is to shorten the cuffs a bit and use that yarn to extend the thumb.

I am wondering if it is possible to unravel the bottoms and re-cast off in reverse... does that make sense? I don't even know how to search for that. Thought I would ask before I go ahead and mess them up completely.

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / how to make fleece mitten liners on: December 03, 2009 08:30:06 PM
So I knit myself a pair of mittens which I really love, except that they are not very warm. (I used cotton which I realize was a bad choice) I think they are roomy enough for a fleece liner, but I've never made liners before. I suppose it's just a matter of sewing a mitten shape out of fleece but I am worried about how to make it so the seams are comfortable and that it doesn't bunch weird, especially in the thumb. Does anyone have any tips?
7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Li'l Duffsters 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)!

8  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Dried up Pens and Markers on: May 03, 2009 01:10:53 PM
I have amassed a huge collection of pens and markers that are dried up, is there anything cool I can make out of them? The coolest thing I have found is this bic chandelier, but my pens are not all the same shape, color and size, and also our house does not exactly have the ceiling for a chadelier! Tongue


9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Mr. Kiwi Bird 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:
