Hello  Grin

i was wondering if anyone could help me with any bright ideas...

I have been trying to knit some of the pocket creatures from knitty:


but it would seem that my knitting skills do not yet stretch this far and I am finding my first attempt very difficult and fear it may have to stay incomplete.

I thought these woud be great little presents for people at christmas, but i think it's going to be too much of a trial for me trying to knit several of these in the next few weeks.
I am trying to think of a more simple pattern that i could use for the same purpose.
i did find this thread:


which is cool - but i quite like the idea of there being little fellas in your pocket rather than just a knitted pouch.

My knitting is not too bad - i am just a little inexperienced is all.

can anyone think of any more simple patterns that they have seen that i can use for this purpose?

i would really appreciate any ideas you may have.

Thanks millions in advance!!!

Just a quick thought - - Maybe you could use one of the many ipod cozy patterns that are out there.  They're usually simple - sometimes even just a seamed up rectangle w/ icord to wrap around a button.  Then you could just slip the muslin warmer section in and be on your way.  Might be worth looking into. 

Also, there is a non-knitted version (I think done w/ felt?) in the new Martha Stewart Handmade Holidays magazine.  I don't see the project on her website but the photo in the magazine is super cute and it's just a square sewn up and then mattress stitched. 

Good luck!  They'll make great little Christmas gifts.

Oh, I found the Martha ones online! Here's the link - http://www.marthastewart.com/page.jhtml?type=content&id=channel191753&catid=cat19296&navLevel=3

Not knitted but you could get an idea from them probably.

great - thanks very much for all your help!!

Those Martha ones are really cute aren't they? I was worried that if I made them too plain that they would just be really boring. Those one's are really nice just being kept simple. The ceramic pie weights are a really good idea. I might have a little experiment with them as well as the rice and lavender.

I'll let you know how I get on. x
