After the last post, filled with what I haven't completed,
I thought it would be nice to show you some of what I HAVE completed lately:
It's been a very PINK spring! :o)
We have two very Pink Ballerinas:
Pippa Potomus for Mia's Birthday
and Katerina Kitty Ballerina for Kristina's Birthday
Katerina rehearsing for her debut!
Pippa and Katerina are cousins and have a lot in common
- they both love pink and they both love to dance!
They're very good friends, too! :o)
Katerina Kitty Ballerina with her cousin Pippa Potomus
and we also introduce:
Kermie 2 for Kristina's Birthday (okay, okay, he's not pink!)
Kermit THE Frog - Kermie 2 for Kristina - with frog legs
Kermie 2 and Katerina are very close
Katerina often goes to Kermie 2 for advice from her big brother
Also not pink:
a sparkly little Marisa Mousie for Jill
And before that I made...
the Peep that we've fallen in love with... I ordered some cool new yarn to try - Moda Dea Fur Sure, and when I saw this lovely yellow fuzzy stuff, it just cried out to be a...
We've fallen in love with a Peep!
We're all crazy about her and so glad that she was an experiment with the new yarn, and not a gift for anyone, so we get to KEEP her! YAYAYAY!!!
Peepsie says "Peeep!" Which means, "Hi!"
Pudgie loves Peepsie Too! :o)
Mossalia the wee Mermaid - my first mermaid experiment. I LOOOOOVE mermaids! :o)
You can see that I caught her (carefully) barehanded. We did not keep her, of course, but had a nice chat, took some photos, said "goodbye", and watched her swim away beneath the waves.
And we can't forget the comic fans amongst our ranks... (okay, I'm one of them, I admit it.)
Marvel Comics' the Human Torch.
- my impressionistic interpretation - for Matt. :o)
He's quite small (prox 3 1/2" not counting flames, 4" with flames).
I think he kind of looks like a fire elemental. :o)
Knitted on size 2 needles with Senso size 3 crochet thread. Flames crocheted in strips and sewn to body.
And A NEW PATTERN!!!
if you have been saving up things to do "When Pigs Fly".... The Time has Come!
We have a Pink Flying Piggy!
Petunia Phlying Piglet
Petunia Phlying Piglet - the flying piggy for Dorothy
Complete with an easy pattern to make her! To make Petunia, I came up with a new (as far as I can determine) idea for making the legs of a 4-legged peep, all in one, along with the rest of the body. She’s knit in the round, all in one piece (except for wings of course), including legs, ears and tail and just stitching the sides of the legs and ears together when the knitting is done. A nice easy project. I really enjoyed making her! :o)
Pattern for Petunia Phlying Piglet can be found here!
Petunia Phlying Piglet - the flying piggy for Dorothy - Ready for Take Off!
More about Petunia and the Loopy Legs Technique in the next post! (which won't be too long away, I hope, because it's nearly finished!)
Hope you are all having a lovely summer! Lots of fun in the sun (with your sunscreen of course) and playing at the beach, and BBQ's, and happy times! :o) Stay Cool! (I sooo want to put "Dudes" here! heh heh)
