I am still not posting here as much as I would like to. However, I do have some things to show you!

This is my monster chunk! How cute is this little guy? He worked up in just a couple of hours and I love him. There will absolutely be more of these in my future. This one went with R. To work. He wanted a little creature for his desk and so I thought this would be prefect. I used bulky yarn for the body and worsted for the feet. These little guys absolutely make me want to get ahold of some super bulky. Also, this is from the author of the Big Book of Knitted Monsters. I must get ahold of this book, especially before I manage to get pregnant.

 

This little guys is my baby red dragon. He was made with cotton worsted held doubled. This KILLED my hands. But it came out adorably. So I really can’t complain. With all of these little creatures, I really need to get ahold of safety eyes at a good price though.

 

This is a book scarf done with thread and a tiny hook. I was really afraid of tackling crochet this fine when beads weren’t involved. But it came out really lovely! I’m really pleased with it. Here it is demonstrating, holding the page in my design journal. This is going to be a gift in a swap package though. I’m going to have to make myself one I think.

 

And here we have my first pair of spats! They are super soft and the colors are really rich in person. The one mistake I made with these, is the top of the cuff though. I made it too small to fit my calf. So I need to wear them with the cuffs turned down which ends up hiding the really pretty ribbing work. Also, the pattern called for 1.2” buttons which I used and they hold… some of the time. I probably should have gone up just a little bit on the button size. I really wanted to add some steam punk buttons to them, but budgeting got in the way. Winking smile 

 

I have one more project to show, but that is going to have to wait for a week or so. It’s going into a swap package and I don’t want to spoil the surprise.

I’m also currently working on a baby blanket. But I haven’t decided if I am going to show that before it is gifted or not. That is what is new if knitting land though!
