Ok, so I promised that I’d post it later today (which is technically yesterday), but here it is!

The Isle of Birds Beanie Ravelry pattern page is here! Please check out my other patterns too. 🙂

And now, the sneak peek….. another beanie!

 

I LOVE this hat! I love the colors and, of course, the kitty! This is a pattern I just sort of started fiddling with and ended up really liking. It uses the same techniques as the other beanies but uses a slightly thinner yarn (worsted, not aran) so it’s a completely different feel.

So, as always, keep checking back here because this one will also have a free pattern coming! 🙂

So, good news for everyone out there looking for a cool new pattern to knit.

I’ve slightly modified my chevron double knit hat and have turned it into a pretty cool fair-isle beanie. I’ve finished it, and pics of it completed are on the way, but here’s a quick look at some WIP pictures.

 

 

There will be a pattern coming too, hopefully this week!~

And don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten about my chevron items. Once I get them re-knitted so that I can include a phototutorial, I’ll post the pattern!

So….. stay tuned~


So I finally retrieved my double-knit cowl from my boyfriend’s house and I took come pictures of it to show off!

Side A:

Side B:

Both Sides:

I know there are a couple of mistakes visible on one side, but those are bound to happen! The good thing is that it’s reversible so I can put the mistake side on the inside! I’m working on the pattern, and it should be up soon-ish. 

I’ve got something else in the works too! Here’s a little sneak peek of what I’ve been working on.

I know, I know, I said I’d upload the patterns for the double-knit hat and cowl, but I really need a nice day to take the pictures to do the patterns justice. (And it’s a bitter winter right now where I live!)

In the meantime, I’ll have a new pattern up this week what basically amounts to a giant pink puff-ball. It’s really a cowl/neckwarmer of sorts, but it’s just so darn fluffy (and sheds everywhere)!

I’m done knitting it and the (free!) pattern should be up before the week’s over.

Check back to see more goodies! 🙂


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.

Vulpix Pokedoll - Almost done!

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! 😀

But yeah, stay tuned for awesome pictures as well as new patterns! 🙂
