I’ve been experimenting with needle felting roving inside cookie cutters. The cookie cutters help keep a nice edge to the felt and it’s far easier than trying to work out a flat shape from my imagination. I have no idea what I’ll do with these sweet animals… ornaments perhaps?
It’s been a little while since I posted anything that I’ve been working on. I’ve been knitting a sweater (the Featherweight Cardigan from Knitbot) as fast as my nimble little fingers can go, but it’s still taking a small eternity. I decided to take a little embroidery break last night and whipped up this little bunny…. The story is that long, long ago I found a story about a disabled bunny in a little chariot and it’s floated around in the back of my brain ever since. So I did a wee bit of researching and finally drew this little guy. However, I need your help! I want to embroidery something achingly clever below him (aka: Cruisin’… or Low Rider… or Hello Ladies). I haven’t come up with that perfect little somethin’ yet, so it will have to remain unfinished until ya’ll help me out!
And here is the Hiker’s Waistcoat that I knit months ago, but never posted about. This is knit with wool that I hand-washed, spun and knit all by myself! It actually turned out pretty successfully considering that the yarn was a wee bit uneven and I had never made something all the way through like that! This is all wool from Bonnieview so it’s local to boot!
I was looking at Kitty Genius’ blog post about Lemmikkiapina’s etsy shop and I knew I had to post about her amazing little creatures. I love the proportions of their lovely bodies and the texture of their fur and how sweet their little poses are. These make my heart melt a little… no, wait, more than a little. I would love to buy one of her lovelies, set it on a shelf and covet it for the rest of my days.
