I love the look that "Meexie" has obtained with her baby-bag and the kitty pillow and was wondering what I need to do to my photo to achieve it? I'm after that stencilled look, without actually having to stencil.
Just finished my most recent hat & scarf. They're worked in Ornaghifilati - Land in colour #103 - an icy blue on 6.5 mm circular needles. Had to knit the hat twice ... first time it was way too tall! I think I'm going to applique a snowflake to the hat ... make it a little special.
UPDATE (Nov. 17): Instead of appliqueing a snowflake, I decided to try my hand a knitting a flower! Here is the result ... I think it looks quite smashing! (the pattern for the flower can be found on the fabulous Knitty.com
OK, I promised to make the ring bearer pillow for a friend getting married at the end of December. The pillow part is no problem ... it's going to be about 8" x 8" ivory satin with a pleated ribbon and tie to hold the rings. My problem is ... it needs to attach to a dog! Any great ideas? I've tried a proto-type where the pillow sits on the dogs back, a long ribbon ties around her chest and 2 velcro tabs attach the underside of the pillow to her collar. It didn't last long ... one shake and the pillow was under the dog! Help!
