Bam! Pow! and a new project

I finally finished the “Fightin’ Words” gloves.  Davey has claimed them, and he likes them lots.bampow

They turned out really nice.  I have enough yarn left over to even make another pair.  I may do that at some point.

For now though, I have started this:

knitterpieces

These are just some of the many pieces I need for a little stuffed toy I am going to make.  It’s going to be a little bear who is knitting.  Such a neat pattern by Alan Dart.  He does such neat detailed patterns of little stuffed guys.  I bought this pattern several years ago, and am now working on it as part of my mission to do projects I started or meant to start a long time ago!

The knitting part is the easy part however,  What gets slow and tricky is putting it altogether.  If I am not careful, my little mouse will look very goofy.  For example, I finished a little bunny right before Easter.oddbunny2

I didn’t take the time and care that I should have to put him together. That’s really important on these little guys.  The more pieces there are, the more I really have to go slow and carefully.  Otherwise the result is like little “Odd Bunny” here.

Back to it.  I am hoping for some nice knitting outside this evening.  It’s been beautiful here the past few days!

  1. I love making yarney animals and like you find the sewing up to be crucial and i hate sewing up, so I crochet them instead, much less sewing up and it makes a sturdier fabric so easier to get features right etc. you only need to be able to do basic stitch -double crochet (eng terms) so its super easy!
