131  knitted frog! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by astormorray on: July 09, 2005 11:56:05 AM
my friend was looking for a frog pattern, so I made one up.  This is the second time around, because the first was a hideous monster. Grin

Anyway, completed this very afternoon for your viewing pleasure:

If you want the pattern, it's here, on my blog: http://www.livejournal.com/users/astormorray/67959.html  But be warned, it's sort of wonky with the eye shaping, and the foot attachment.

132  Blue Lion! In Egypt? plastic canvas in Needlework: Completed Projects by astormorray on: July 05, 2005 09:58:27 PM

My own design, based on my cat, my first needlepoint exercise, although the scale's bigger than usual needlepoint, but hey, it's my first!  So, it's on plastic canvas, mostly done with obscure balls of knitting yarn with bits of ribbon and metallic craft yarn and twine thrown in for contrast.  My favorites, by far, are the angora-ish yarns (doubled and quadrupled to meet gage), that leave a nice halo when pulled through (and are so soothing to work with!), and the boucle yarns that have a nice nubbliness... you can't see the contrast in texture in the picture as well, but that was much of the joy of it.

What really doesn't work, however, is chenille...  It gets shredded in the canvas and drops fuzzy bits everywhere.

Now I just have to figure out how to hang it.  I made a dreadful mess of the back, it's unlikely it can be made to lie flat.   Tongue

133  color block scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by astormorray on: June 18, 2005 06:19:17 PM

It's adapted from the vogue on the go scarf book II, actually it's the cover scarf, although I used four colors instead of three, and larger yarn/larger needles (30 stitches across rather than 62).  And I had to verge from pattern at the end when I ran out of red and purple, but the kitten's sitting on that part Grin.  The yarn is Lion's Brand Kool Wool (which is so cartoony, I love it!), it's for my dad's birthday.  Still got to weave ends in, of course, but just thought I'd post.
