1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Zombie Penguin w/victim on: December 17, 2006 10:22:47 AM
I saw a zombie penguin stuffie here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=128150.0 and thought, what a great idea! As luck would have it, my MIL sent me Knitted Toys by Jean Greenhowe and it had a whole family of penguins. So I knitted up a zombie penguin!

He's about as tall as a postcard, so between 3 and 4 inches tall. I added some details, like a splash of blood on his chest, blood on his beak and flippers, and in his side I have a little hidden pocket where his guts go. Also, I knitted another penguin head, to be his victim.

http://theknittingdiva.com/penguin/index.htm  this is a gallery of in progress and finished pics so you can see what I did to him. I knitted him in Pattons Grace (the green and black) the white is also mercerized cotton, but the red and yellow are dk weight wool.

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Textural Scarf on: October 08, 2006 12:31:53 AM
Last year I swapped 2 knitted throw pillows for an Erica Weiner Textural Scarf kit (as seen on plainmabel.com !)

I finally got around to knitting it!

the ammount of tiny balls of yarn you start out with is daunting, as is the 100+ stitches the pattern called for (I think) since one 10yd length of the yarn doesn't go very far. I cast on and tinked this thing at least 8 or 9 times since I got it in 2005. However, I finally knuckled down and cast on with a similar color yarn that I had on hand, and went from there, once I was started it was fairly easy.

Golly, isn't that gorgeous? The textural bit is so true, and even though the greens aren't my colors, I get a lot of compliments on it because it is so beautiful. I am donating it to a fellow blogger who is trying to sell enough stuff at her local craft fair to be able to purchase a knitting basket for needy people in a 3rd world country. Socks for Sheep I hope someone @ her craft fair likes it Smiley
