Hey, Sally here, again, told you I have more. So I'm not sure how this will go, if I should do a bunch of projects per post or just one, but I think I'll go for the latter for now. Makes sense, in case anyone wants to refer to just one.. ever. Again I hope you don't get sick of me.

So I made the Sponge guy hat and it was a hit and the natural progression of course was to make him a buddy..and who is his best buddy? Duh..... sorry had a Patrick moment! (Yes..I AM a cheeseball)

I made him the same way I made his cohort.. pulled it out of my... head. I started on dpns making both of his legs and then started knitting in the round incorporating those legs as I cast on. Since he wears shorts of varied colors(can't see very well in the pic) I had to use the fairisle technique while knitting in the round(as well as on the dps first as you can see) and then the rest was cake..pink...in the round... tapered it as I went, made his arms seperately (like making a hood) and attached them. His eyes were crocheted(shh don't tell) oh, and his pupils are buttons, which I failed to mention about his friend..he had the same. I made his mouth seperately and again fairisle technique so the tongue looked ok and then attached, used some black yarn and made zigzags on his forhead for eyebrows (which I know you can't see, sorry!) and BAM. done.

Again, all of my actual patterns are in storage, but I find (and I hope you do too) that feeling it out as you go is the best way. This is the one and only pic I have of this hat, the ex sold it and I never made another. O and it's being modeled by a background extra named Frank while on the set of Ugly Betty during some down time. Thank youuuuu Frank.


We should all fear evil men, but what we should fear most, is the indifference of good men. On a lighter note..have you smiled today? If you have not, Just DO IT! If you have..do it again!

Ahahaha! Oh wow, I love it! Even though I don't really like sponge bob.

To be a saint is the exception, but to be upright is the rule. err, falter, sin, but be upright.

I craft, and live in my spare time.
