Hi everyone!
I'm happy to hear some of you started yours!
And if you have any questions, visit either of our blogs, or get in touch.  We love to help!

Here is the finished cardigan!

I'm happy and proud!
And as a beginner, I know that any other beginner can do it, since I managed it!  You can do it, don't be afraid!

You can see more photos and information here at the blog post I made about the finished cardigan Smiley

Yay knitting!!

I think you can only felt to a certain degree and then they really can't shrink any more.
I felted these for ages to get them small enough but there is a point where they don't go any smaller Smiley  Hope this helps and if there's a felting expert out there, chime in!  I'm a newbie!
14  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help modifying one pattern to work for another character! on: June 29, 2012 03:17:57 PM
Hmm I agree, I think for the stripes that don't go the whole way around the body (and for the head also), it would probably be easiest to cut out felt shapes and attach (or crochet flat shapes and attach), rather than incorporating the colour changes into your crochet.  For the ones that go all the way around it would be easy enough to crochet the colour changes though (like on the tail).
The pattern looks like a good match though!
Other thoughts:  Make the body shorter and legs thicker?
Not sure how the best way to create the mane/neck ruff would be.

Good luck! Smiley

These are knitted up and hand felted.  I can't believe the magic of felting!  It was my first time..

Here is a before and after felting pic, amazing!

Little pom poms for the tails Smiley

This pattern is called hopsalots by TinyOwlKnits and it's on Ravelry.

I'm pretty happy with how they came out and they're definitely warm and snuggly!  But too cute to ruin by scuffing around in all day!

Thanks a bunch guys!  I'm glad you like it!  I guess technically I had done a bit of embroidery beforehand, I did a little bit of practice, and embroidered on a face mask.  But this was my first "proper" embroidery project, lol!  Still got a lot to learn and created plenty of messes Smiley
I'm looking forward to making another!

Completed, my first embroidery!
I took this vintage embroidery pattern and added to it and refined it.  http://www.flickr.com/photos/sewshesews/5336796427/in/[email protected]

Stitches used include lazy daisies, back stitch, satin stitch, seed stitch, stem stitch, scallop stitch, and chain stitch.  (Chain stitch is the fill on the wing).

Since this is my first embroidery comments, criticisms and any thoughts would be much appreciated!

Also, if anyone wanted my "new and improved" version of the pattern I could probably sort something out!

So coool, I love when french knots are used as a fill.  That's awesome, and your Pennywise.... eeeek stuff nightmares are made of!  But so awesome!
May I ask what silk stitching is?

Well, we're into the knit-along!  We have a bunch of people joining in, so its really great! Gail has been doing tonnes of informative posts, and Ive been putting up my newbies perspective, and what Ive learned, so I really think anyone wanting to make their first cardigan will find loads of info and help Smiley
There is still time to join, as the time-frame is super loose, and people are at lots of different speeds and stages of progress.

If I can do it, being as green as I am, anyone can! Its really exciting Smiley

Here are the links to the knit-along posts:
20  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Any tutorials on how to split off and join shapes? on: April 11, 2012 05:20:24 PM
I've been looking into a few more advanced techniques, and I really want to have a crack at designing an amigurumi.  However I want to have a shape that will split off into other shapes, and also join a few shapes into one.  Nothing super fancy.  Just for example, a tube that splits off at the bottom into four smaller tubes.

Does anyone know of any good tutorials for making this happen?  Video, picture tutorials, anything?  I haven't had much luck looking!

Thanks in advance! Smiley
