Sorry it’s been so long (even though I know I’m writing to no one…) but I’ve been really busy with school starting back up and working on other knitting and crocheting projects. The Vulpix doll is DONE and I just need to take pics of it with my good camera to upload them here and on Ravelry (hopefully!).

Oh, that’s right. I haven’t posted that here yet. A couple of months ago (before Christmas) I decided that it was high time that I make a plushie. It actually started as a desire to make a Kitsune and then turned into: “Why don’t I just make a Vulpix pokedoll?” For those of you who don’t know, pokedolls are basically adorable chibi versions of regular pokemon. There is an official line that’s put out by stores in Japan and the U.S., but they haven’t made a Vulpix one so I had to work from scratch!

Vulpix Pokedoll - Just the head.

Just the head.

It was somewhat of a hard time making the doll simply because there were so many parts–a lot more than I imagined!

Vulpix Pokedoll - About halfway done!

About halfway done!

But like I said, I need to get to my good camera to do the finish product justice, so for now it’s just the WIP pics. Hopefully they give you a good idea of how it turned out.

Almost done!

In the meantime, I’ve been knitting like a crazy person. I just finished a really cool double-knit cowl of my own design that, once I get a hold of my good camera, I’ll take pics of and might even write up a free pattern that I’ll post on Ravelry. I’ll post a link on here too.

Right now, plushie making is on hold. I’ll start designing my next one once I finish up my Christmas gifts (I know…. super late). I’m currently working on a double-knit hat to go with the cowl. The rest of my list looks like this:

– Grey worsted hat for Mom
– Finish putting details on sweatervest for Nick
– Finish mittens for Heather

After that, I think that I’ll finally start working on another plushie. I really enjoyed making Vulpix and I hope that you all are looking forward to my new plushie as much as I am looking forward to making it! πŸ˜€

But yeah, stay tuned for awesome pictures as well as new patterns! πŸ™‚
