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!
