I posted before about wanting to sell on Etsy. I alerady have a pattern for dishclothes I can pump out pretty quickly, but I spent most of the last week working on two new patterns that, for the moment, I’m not going to be sharing.
I had the idea for my llama last month actually, and drew it out but I had a few things in my way: No DPNs or circulars, and no yarn. Richie to the rescue! He bought me a whole order from Knit Picks, yarn and some needles, for my birthday. Yay!
Although, now that I look at them, I think I’m going to change the bind off to make their heads just a little less pointy.
I also wrote up a pattern for a cat, which basically the same as the llama except the body is shaped differently, and the head is a separate piece altogether. You can’t tell in the pic, but she has a white belly, and is quite adorable in real life. I just love cats with green eyes.
Her head was an absolute bitch to figure out, but three heads (she’s got the 4th) later and I’m very pleased with the results.
I suppose if I wanted a ridiculous cute-huge head the last one in the pic would have worked, but uhhhh no.
