I just got the pics uploaded so I thought I should share,

  KNit using Lion Brand, Lion Suede, made to fit a small pistol, modeled after a Mackerov holster, Inspired by Emerson Cod's in an episode of pushing daisies (you have to love a Private Investigator that finds stocking knit relaxing). knitted on size 9 needles, and when I get a chance I did write the pattern as I went I just have to find it again soo a pattern is coming, as soon as I have it up I will let yall know.

  Olive's Scarf also from an episode of Pushing Daisies ( I believe the episode was corpsicle),  it was knit on size 15 needles, using hand dyed wool roving (superwash) bought from the sheepshed.  The purpley additions were my own personal choice and not screen accurate

I love the scarf.  It looks like a small version of a Giles scarf (http://my.opera.com/mystyle/blog/show.dml/1530845).  Ok, very small version, but yours still looks like it has nice big stitches.  I love it.

That scarf is beautiful!  Did you knit it out of unspun roving?

yes, it was made of unspun roving, though I found it was a little easier to knit with if I twisted it just a little as I knitted.  I literally just peeled a strip off of the main roving strip (unsure what its called), and knitted away.  it was fun and fast, I wish I had seed stitched the border because it curls incessantly, I will probably eventually line it to minimize the curling issue.

This was the scarf that inspired it http://pushingdaisies-tv.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=35&pos=883

That is one rockin' gun cozy... I'm just finishing up my CHL application so I can appreciate a crafted gun holder.  Wink

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.

Smiley  I used red yarn because thats what was used in the originals  http://pushingdaisies-tv.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=23&pos=149 , I used the Lion Suede yarn because I dug up an interview (yay for cyber sleuthing) with the woman who knits the nifty things you see in the show, and it mentioned that the gun cozies were knit with a red faux suede yarn.  The faux suede yarn makes sense because it is soo not stretchy
