11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Nessie Amigurumi on: May 16, 2011 08:58:31 PM
This is the first amigurumi I knit from the book Amigurumi Knits a couple of years ago. I have since knitted many other patterns from that book, but the Loch Ness Monster will always have a special place in my heart.

My little sister also liked it so much that she requested a Nessie in purple and pink for Christmas last year.  Smiley
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Panda Dog on: April 22, 2011 08:53:49 PM
Hi everyone!
This is a gift that I knitted for a friend. She is really funny and sweet, and on my birthday she sent me a surprise box of merino wool yarn and a set of rosewood knitting needles. Friends like that are so worth knitting for!

She loves panda dogs, so I made her one of her very own!

I used Bernat Alpaca yarn in black and white for the body, and small amounts of other types of yarns for the tongue and collar.

I made up the pattern as I went along. This panda dog is about 8 or 9 inches tall.
Thanks for looking!
13  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Oh No! A Sparkly Vampire! (Picture Heavy) on: April 15, 2011 08:44:47 PM
This is part of a gift I made for a friend's birthday. He read Twilight and likes to make jokes about sparkly vampires Wink, so my mom and I made a vampire kit for him. I knit this sparkly vampire doll to put in the kit.

He's kind of a mix between Edward Cullen and Dracula, complete with cape.

The body is knit in one piece. I used black yarn to knit his feet, legs, and cape, dark green yarn to knit his sweater/torso, and white sparkly yarn to knit his hands and face. I embroidered his hair and features.

I was very happy with how his hair turned out, even though it took me hours to finish. Roll Eyes I tried to choose a color similar to Edward's hair.

Here he is without the cape! I didn't use a pattern for any of this, I just made it up as I went along. I even cut some toothpicks to look like stakes.

Uh oh! Looks like someone got too close to Van Helsing.  Wink
14  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Nautiloid on: April 01, 2011 03:03:03 PM
This is a nautiloid that I knitted from various colors of yarn from my stash. I got the idea from a pattern in knitty:http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring06/PATTnautie.html. I wanted the shell and stripes on my nautiloid to look different from the shell in that pattern, so I used a shell pattern from a book I own. I also knitted my nautiloid's eyes, instead of using felt.

Nautiloids were the first cephalopods to swim in the ocean, and their shells came in a variety of shapes. They are the great great great great great granddaddies of squids and octopuses. But this little guy doesn't look half his age, does he? Wink
15  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Amigurumi Jackalope on: March 27, 2011 05:44:34 PM
Hello everyone!

This is a Jackalope (a mythical antlered rabbit) that I knitted a few months ago.

I got the pattern from a book called Amigurumi Knits by Hansi Singh. I have made so many stuffed animals from the patterns in this book! I used Caron Country in a light brown for the body, Caron Spa in a lavender color for the paw pads and the insides of the ears, Mission Falls 136 Merino in a purple for the embroidered eyes and nose, and some random white cotton yarn for the antlers.
Here's a closeup on the face! (Sorry about the poor picture quality, I haven't been able to get pictures off my regular camera, so I was using a webcam.)

I love how the jackalope came out, and I think with a few tweaks I could adapt this pattern to make other animals!
Thanks for looking!
