Bunny Tool Tote

This cute bunny assists in keeping all of my Knitting tools in one place, she even tucks my scissors under her arms so I know where they are when I need them. Before I made her I spent a lot of time trying to figure out where I set the scissors, or where my yarn needle went, and I cant tell you how many markers I have had to recover from under the sofa!!!  Not any more, everything has a place on my Bunny Tote, and I never loose anything now!

This is a great pattern written by "Dolly Time"

Millie Moose

 Moose is 16 inches standing and 9 inches in the seated position, worked on a #3 knitting needle with Paton's Dk Fab yarn.  New pattern available on our knitting page.
Not sure why, but when Christmas draws near I think of Moose's, I use to have a set that were called "Kissy  Moose's", and they were Christmas plushys a friend made for me.
I searched and searched for a knitted moose pattern and could not find one (that I liked) they are kind of scarce, so I decided to make my own. Were experiencing our first Snow fall of the year today , so its kinda nice to release this pattern today in view of the up coming season.

NEW Christmas Cuties in Crochet or Knit!


Here is a new set of Amigurumi's I have made and written the pattern's for both Crochet and Knitters. I felt a need for both due to the fact not all of us can do both crafts and did not want to leave anyone out in cold!.
Both Versions are for sale in our Etsy store or here on the blog:


These cute little plushy dolls work up at 4-5 inches depending on the yarn and tension they are worked in.

They make great Tree Ornaments, Stocking Stuffers, Office gifts, toddler and baby gifts, Etc....

Halloween Gifts 2010

 I call this little guy...CANDY CORN, he was so fun to make, he is an Alan Dart Pattern. I made him for my Husband whose favorite candy at Halloween (other than chocolate!) is Candy Corn.
 Whats Halloween without a nice black  RAVEN? He is a Pattern by
 Maria Ström-Bestor called Ferdinand Raven . I  knitted his wings and tail freestyle as the pattern did not have a tail in it, and the wings are in crochet in the  original pattern , and  I wanted the whole bird knitted.

"My little Gargoyle" Designed by PhoenyPhoenixknits, was a fun pattern to work up, I was very pleased with how this little guy turned out, legion tells us Gargoyles represent good, not evil, but have you seen some of them?!!! Yeesh , they look spooky to me!!       

 Knitted bears, All dressed up! by Val Pierce, is a fun pattern book, it has several
cute knitted bears that you can make for almost any occasion, they make all the bears in Garter  stitch, however I preferred mine done  in a Stockinette stitch .

Wonderful little Witch based on the Jean Greenhowe's technique for making little characters in knit!  Halloween is one of my very favorite Holidays, and I had a blast making all of these for my Grandkiddies!

Another Alan Dart Pattern, he is called Jack O'Lantern, I made him just for me, He is setting on top of the paino in my living room, I dont often take the time to make myself  things, but just could not resist this guy! Tim Burtonish..... dont you think!

Seaside Bunnies

Whew.....Just finished these fabulous bunnies! Pattern by Debi Birkin titled "Seaside bunnies".
Mine ended up being 16 1/2 inches tall, the pattern says it works up 11 inches tall. But I used a larger yarn, " Lion brand Vanna's Choice " and "Lion brand pound of love" with  a # 3 needle,  the bunnies bodys are made with " Bernat Berlla afagan yarn". These yarns made a very nice tight fabric for stuffing.  And I love the larger size, just right for little kids to cuddle!  Notice the Pepsi can for size  comparison.

You may get this pattern on Ravelry however you have to be a member, sign up its FREE!! Many patterns available.
