Me, too!

I also made a bunch of jelly babies from her booklet, Little Gift Dolls, the whale and bunny from Knitted Animals, the swirled ice cream cones and plum pudding tea pot cozy from the Christmas Special, the cactus toys, little people egg cozy and finger puppets from Bazaar Knits.  All of these booklets can be found at http://www.yarnfwd.com/jeangr.html.  I'll get pics posted soon!

Thanks, snowflake, for starting this thread!

Okay, here are more FOs from Jean Greenhowe booklets.  These are from about a year ago, but never posted before.  Sorry about the pictures not being great - I was in a rush and the toys are all squished from being loved by two little boys (when they hug the toys - all in a big bunch! - they often quote from Spongebob Squarepants, the episode where his grandma gives him a sweater, "with love in every stitch.").

More ducks, from Knitted Animals.

Also from Knitted Animals, my son wanted the bunny to look like James Bond, so I knit in the clothes (instead of a plain brown body).

Whales, from the same booklet.

Assorted food. The donuts are from Bazaar Knits, the apple is from Jiffyknits (lots of food in that one, all made in garter stitch) and the ice-cream cone is from the Christmas Special.

These cacti are from Bazaar Knits.  This is the worst of the lot - these were my first FOs after knitting a swatch.

Jelly babies, from Little Gift Dolls.

Here are my little critters (from Jiffy Knits):


Halloween-themed.  I kind of forgot to post them in a timely manner!

Well, I can't post stuff that's copyrighted as it may be interpreted as republishing the pattern, but there is a very similar free pattern here: http://www.joyfultoys.bravepages.com/prabbit.html

It's knit flat on 2 needles.  You knit the legs separately but don't bind off - just leave them on the needle or on a stitch holder.  Then you knit across them both and make the body and head.  When you sew it, the seam ends up on the back of the head and body, and on the inseam of the legs.  The arms are knit separately and attached later.
