11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Blue Ringed Socktopus!! on: July 07, 2010 08:05:04 PM

The Blue Ringed Octopus's bite can kill a grown man in under three minutes.
It is also among the smallest of the octopus species, and has a lifespan of 6-8 months. The Blue Ringed Socktopus has never bitten a human and even if he did, his bite contains no poison. Socktopus also lives forever, which makes him very popular among cephalapod enthusiasts. While the Blue Ringed Octopus has very fragile skin and tends to react badly to handling, Socktopus is made of soft, durable wool, and loves to cuddle. C:

    I'm pretty happy with this attempt, although I still have a ton of trouble with grafting things. I think I just get impatient and go too fast or something, but I don't know. Please feel free to critique the stuffing out of this thing! Thanks for looking!

Thank you all so much! Your kind words are really encouraging!
    Yes, I'm planning on blocking it once I'm ready to put it down and not mess with it for a couple of days while it dries, which is a hard deal right now. Cheesy I've never blocked lace before, so hopefully I won't screw it up.
    Thanks again! <3
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Shipwreck Shawl! on: June 24, 2010 06:52:41 AM
When I used to have no faith in my knitting skills I would browse Knitty.com in vain, jealously wishing that I, too, had the skills to produce cabled cardigans and lace scarves.  Since I've improved my skills (and my confidence!) and I took on a project that I've been longing to do since I first saw it!


       Although the shawl on the website is HUGE, I stopped about a 12" or so early, making a little baby shawl. I'm using it for a wedding veil, and then stretching it over a wooden parasol frame to keep it forever.  Grin

     The original pattern is here:


    Thanks for looking! C:

16  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Fair Isle Sweater of Blindness and Insanity on: February 05, 2010 03:53:10 PM
    SNOMG 2010: The Panicking has been going on all day today, and I'm waiting for the snowfall to get up to two feet before it's worth it to go outside and play. I saved the hard part of this sweater for the weekend, knowing it was going to be snowy, and then finished it before I expected. Boo hiss!

    This was my second ever Fair Isle sweater, but the first I actually want to wear. I hope blocking it will help make it a little looser and a little longer, but other then that I am really excited and proud of this one.

That looks so warm and cozy! I love the button, and pink and green is my favorite color combination. Ever. Great job!
