I am new to knitting (less than a year) and just learned how to knit in the round with dpns.  I love it and can't stop!  I knitted this for my partner H00lie for the Dia de los Muertos swap.



I used a pattern from the Book Knit Wits that is actually supposed to be the body of a ninja.  This is a great book for a novice knitter like me.


After stuffing, I sewed on 2 fabric daisies for eyes and glued on felt and brads for the other features.  I then used fabric paints for embellishment.

Thanks for looking!

When I clicked on the image from the home page I didn't expect to be directed to the knitting board. What a clever and original idea. I just love it. The use of flowers for the eyes is brilliant. Great job!!

Thank you for the warm compliments!  My family and friends are putting in orders and almost didn't let me send it!  LOL
