11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Blue Bunny on: September 12, 2008 07:14:02 PM
Thanks everyone!

Hey Romey14- I did of course draw inspiration from animal stoles but it is inspired by her drawings because she does draw a lot of little bunnies. So in that way I thought a bunny more appropriate to her than say a fox. But there is a knitting pattern for a fake knitted fox out there. I think its call Vegan Fox and the pattern is here.  http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall02/PATTveganfox.html

I made this little blue bunny for a friend of mine. It was her birthday a few weeks back so I was able to put him together in a couple of days. He was inspired by pastel drawings done by the birthday girl.

He was made out of Sean Sheep Sensual. His body is basically a tube with little tubes for legs. His head was made separately and then sewn on later. His head was constructed by starting with a knit square and then picking up stitches around the square. I knit in the round and then decreased creating a kind of cone. His ears were knit separately and when I picked up the stitches from the back of his head I pulled those stitches through the ears so they are kind of knitted in.

The birthday girl seemed to love the gift. She promised to wear it in Paris next year when she is there to learn French.

Thanks for looking!

I think the W.W.M.D  is funny but it made me think of another acronym.
W.M.D. weapons of mass destruction or weapon of mass decoration, weapon of modern domesticity.

When I saw your picture I immediately thought of Enid from Ghost World.

17  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Idle hands... on: October 01, 2007 05:24:36 AM
So I just wanted to share all of my FO's for this past Sept. I have had a lot of time and a lot of yarn. I have accumulated quite a stash (not helped by a sale at which I bought 24 balls of beautiful yarn for only $24). So I have spent the month trying to destash and use up all of the odd balls I have. So here they are!

Here we have 8 hats, 3 pairs of fingerless glove, and 3 pompoms!

The two pairs at the top were made with the Purl Bee's Dragon Scale mitts.
The lower pair are just something I made up.

These two berets were made with the Purl Bee's beret pattern.

This is Topstitchgirl's Kubla Kahn hat from her blog.

This is my own pattern. I was trying to go for cloche but it didnt quite make it.

This was knit just like a basic stocking cap and then I used the instructions from SnB nation's news boy cap to add the bill.

Just a couple of stocking hats.

For this cap I used Urchin from Knitty's fall 2007 Urchin. I really like this yarn. I don't usually like furry things but this yarn sooo soft. It was like knitting a persian cat!

And just a few pompoms. I bought a set of pompom makers so I have to justify the purchase by actually using it every so often.

Thanks for looking hope you enjoyed!

Haha! I really like this. The image is great and I love how your coffee cozy is the full length of the cup! I think I'm going to make a cup of coffee now...

What was the occasion exactly? Come on we want the long version of the tale (/tail)... Grin

Well the big fish tail is this. I saw an add for staff for a burlesque group. They were looking for performers and staff. So I thought it might be fun to help make costumes. But it turns out it wasn't a burlesque group but Dr. Sketchy's. Dr. Sketchy's is a burlesque life drawing group. So anyway they said if I wanted to make a costume for one week that I could. So I did! If you are interested in participating or attending Dr. Sketchy's I think you can google them and see if there is one in your area. They seem to be all over. The original one is in NYC but the one I participated in is in Tokyo.

I really like that shape!
I think I might use the same idea to make some knitted cushions for my home!
