Nip/Tuck




This is Henry, from the pattern Henri the Knitted Bear by Rachel Borello. He was meant to cast a cheerful glow over the tree, but ended up looking like he has a bad case of indigestion from eating one too many holiday cookies. The hardest part of knitting softies is getting their expressions to turn out the way you intended. Oh well, maybe Henry just doesn't care for smittens. Or maybe his grumpiness is from missing a pair of legs and an arm. Sorry Henry, but those will have to wait because there are many more gifts to knit. I am almost finished with another Botanic Hat. This one is knitted out of Ultra Alpaca and Poems yarn. Really loving the subtle effect of these yarns knitted together. Then onwards to Grandma L.'s knitted bead bracelet. Here's a preview of the beads that will be used. Not much time left, so hopefully this will knit up quickly. (Check out these crafty ladies at TAMI'S blog for WIP Wednesdays).

  1. The colours in that hat are just beautiful! I want to say they're "organic" or something, but that probably sounds a little silly and pretentious.

    And I think Henri is very cute, especially tucked into the smitten. (And hey, if you don't get around to finishing his limbs, he can stay tucked in there.)

  5. Henry & Smitten make a good team! I think little toys are very challenging to get right and you are doing great. (Love those beads, too.)
