11  Re: Teddy Bear in Knitting: Completed Projects by wobblerat on: January 17, 2007 03:26:52 PM
If you like teddy bears, i totally recommend the Bobbi Bear....he's gotta be the cutest, sweetest looking bear out there....I ended up making about 3 mini versions (8-10 inches) of him on some cotton yarn from Purl Soho on size 6 dpns.  I think the way the pattern's written, he's meant to be about 2 feet tall on size 11 needles or something.

You can buy the pattern at :  http://www.blueskyalpacas.com/patternsandbooks/patterns/bulky/b2.html
 or i think some other stores carry it too! 

The links had changed when I looked at them, so here are the updated one.  This pattern is a good one to try, it's pretty easy and almost instant gratification.  Almost  Wink

I know I'm not expressing any new feeling here, but Myloveasdeep, I am SO PISSED that someone would do this to you!!!  AAARGH!
How did you find it on Ebay?  Were you just looking or did someone bring it to your attention.  I hope this gets resolved soon, and I do believe that karma is a B!TCH.  Grrr

On a happier note, I got MANY compliments on my own Xmas piggy, that I made based on your fantastic design....I hope the pic cheers you up.  And thanks for a great FREE pattern!

I just finished this pattern, and I think it turned out great.

It looks a lot better on my MIL than me. I look like a dork in a beret, so I'm modeling it more as a beanie.

I hope you can see the pattern on the hat well enough.  It's currently so cloudy outside, I can't get a really good picture.  Comments, criticisms always welcome...

14  My first amigurumi, my piggy christmas angel in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by wobblerat on: December 11, 2006 08:40:28 PM
So, I've done some crocheting before.  And by some, I mean like granny squares.  So I'm quite pleased with how this little guy has turned out.  I had a great time making him.  The pig pattern is from a book called In love with Crochet from Leisure Arts that I picked up from Joann's forever ago.
I made the wings up based on A LOT of patterns off the internet.  It took me FOREVER to come up with some I liked.  And I'm not too sure about these   Undecided

So anyway, some action shots:
Climbing up the Christmas tree..
And at his new home as our Christmas angel..
He seems very happy to be there.  My dot is going crazy about him...She reeeeellly wants to play with him.  But he's mine.  She did get to hold him for about a second
I promised that I would make her one next.

For now, Hamlet is staying on the tree.  And then I think he will come to work with me to cheer up my basement office  Cheesy

The hat has undergone another evolution/mutation.  In typical 2 year old style, she wouldn't keep it on.  And being the brainiac that I am, I forgot that piggy tails = cold ears.  Thus the solution for both, ear flaps with I cords for tying....

That should stump her for another 5 seconds or so... thanks for looking!

Toque, again you rock my plushie lovin' world!!! Kiss  I too have a love for flying pigs.   Perhaps you would enjoy this little darlin'.  I bought one a while ago and made him into a pendant on a necklace. 
They've also got lots of other adorable flyin' critters there too. 

ps. if you're ever so inclined, I would love this tutorial....I would be more than grateful to buy it!!

xoxo, wobbles

*Edit*  I forgot to give proper credit for the above flying pig bead.  This lovely creation is from http://greengirlstudios.com great store, owned by two sisters who design and make everything.  woo hoo.  go sisters!!

Your daughter is very cute...and her hair looks like a longer version of my 23 month olds.  I will have to remember this idea when I finally get around to learning to knit


Do you crochet?

if so, this is what the yarn looks like crocheted up (is that even a term?) on size G hook.  Pardon my poor crocheting, this is why I don't do it very often

Or, that's what the button hole would look like anyway.  It crochets up nice and dense...Maybe I'll make a crocheted version too.

panty hats Huh.... I...  guess.. that.. makes.. sense.. one could make them from panties if one were so inclined.  I would just be happy to get her to wear real panties on her tushy!!

I've tried braiding, but she doesn't stay still but for a split second at a time.  even bribing doesn't work.  Here's a pic of her in her natural state
it's chaos I tells ya!

20  piggy tail hat (modified again, now with earflaps!!) in Knitting: Completed Projects by wobblerat on: November 25, 2006 09:16:32 AM
I'll put the update here so you won't have to scroll down for it:
So what do you do when your kid won't keep the hat that you so lovingly made for her on her head.  You tie it on!!!

The new(ish) and improved piggytail hat:

bwa ha ha ha!  Now she'll keep it on for more than 5 sec... Man, it's hard to outwit a 2 year old... Wink

Okay, the hat itself doesn't have piggy tails, but it does have spots where you can stick your piggy tails through. 

This is dot v.1.  She has the craziest, wiliest, knotiest hair in the world.  (probably not true, but it seems like it  Wink) It is a daily struggle to comb her hair.  So when I am finally able to get it into piggy tails, I'm not taking them out for anything, especially not to put a hat on to go out side.  Thus the birth of the piggy tail hat. 
I thought about leaving a hole on the top for a pony tail to come through, but that seemed like a little much for one hat.  Perhaps another day. 
I thought about making embellishments for the hat, but the yarn is pretty busy on it's own.  It's Lion Brand, prints, 100% wool, knit on size 4 dpns, stockinette stitch with two buttonholes where the piggy tails come through. 
What do you think fellow crafsters?
