Two great tastes that... wait... wha?

Vultures and knitting.

Yeah, those are two things you'd never think would go together.

Well, in Little Dee by Chris Baldwin, they do. Prime example - Vachel's comments on struggling for a sweater. Plus you have to love a guy who writes a sea shanty about knitting.

Finished Object - Wolfie

I finished one more project, a wolf based on the Husky in World of Knitted Toys.

I had the hardest time finding safety eyes. I didn't want to spend $5 in postage for a $0.69 part. But every major chain, and a few independent craft store I checked didn't have any. So I ended up having to mail order them anyway. But the wait was worth it. :)

Finished Object - Moose on the Loose

This Moose on the Loose is intended for a friend who collects moose. However he's so cute, I'm tempted to keep him for myself.

Finished Object - Marley's Ghost

I showed a friend Marley's Ghost telling her that I was going to make it as a long scarf or a belt. She said she wanted one. So guess whose was finished first? ;)

Finished Object - Extermiknit!

The friend I knit the TARDIS for kept joking that I should make her a Dalek to go along with it. Little did she know I was already working on Extermiknit for her birthday.

Now she's hinting she wants a Doctor.

Finished Object - Benetar

About two years ago, I began playing Guitar Hero. I don't claim to be that good at it though, but I really do enjoy letting my Inner Rock Goddess out to play.

So I had to make a Benetar from New Knits on the Block: A Guide to Knitting What Kids Really Wantfor myself.
