A really sweet spring card with a spring fairy on it..

2 amazing wooden pots - one with KTC (knit the city.com) which im involved with, and one with some really sweet birds hand painted on...

3  Knitting Graffiti in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by tofty on: January 09, 2010 10:36:26 AM
Hi guys,

Just thought id share some knitting graffiti with you all...

KNIT THE CITY have been wrapping london in wholly goodness this year.  There are 7 members from all over london, who were all dragged into the Knit the city bunker and taught the way of the yarnstorm through gruelling tests and trials.  You can follow them on twitter (@knitthecity) and here is their site: 

Most of the yarn corps also have their own sites too:


Heres a few snapshots of pieces they've done:

Nothing at all to do with me Wink

4  Henry my sock monster in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by tofty on: January 12, 2009 06:31:04 PM
Id like to intorduce you to Henry, my first sock monster!

I made him from a pair of socks (just one) from the dollar store (or even 100 yen store - here in Japan).  In fact all of the materials were from the yen store apart from the seqins on his toes and fingers.

i hope you like him, thanks for looking  Cheesy

8  Needle book - my first posting!! in Needlework: Completed Projects by tofty on: January 04, 2009 03:25:42 AM
Hi guys, im quite new to Craftster, and ive finally bitten the bullet and decided to post a finished object up here... i hope you like it!

Ive made it for my stitch and bitch group here in Tokyo, as we are having a (late - due to many people returning home for the holidays) secret santa.

I made the stamps i used for the back (my initials) and the heart, star and cupcake from erasers cut with a craft knife... (a japanese friend told me about this craft - very cool, and easy to try!).... The pearl bead is used as a button with plaited embroidery thread as a hook to keep the book closed.

Thanks for looking Smiley
