Take your old lady knitting jokes, bake them into a humble pie and get to munching! Knitting has hit the high brow fashion scene! The site this was on is in Russian (I think) so I couldn’t get details on what was going on but the designs were lovely.
Ok. Back up. The yellow one was lovely. The others are…well…let’s just say I don’t appreciate them as much. Take out the the distressed, famished face of the model and I could see a chick rocking this look! I want one. In white though. So cool!
I very seldom have a sense of accomplishment this strong so I have share this with everyone! I finished the dinosaur hat! Were you here, you would be gazing at my incredibly smug face right now.
Isn’t he cute? The pattern calls for the eyes to be crocheted but when I was stitching them I thought it was making Dino look more like Kermit so I went for buttons. I’ve always loved button eyes on plushies anyway. Best part? My son loves it! He’s trotting around the house wearing it and I love I made something he enjoys so much.
When I stopped marveling at my own magnificence for a few seconds, I called up John Hammond from Jurassic Park and told him to move over and I’ll take the dinosaur creating from here. He was all indignant.
Ok guys. I’m gonna level with ya. Aside from feeling like patient zero of the zombie apocalypse (ie: cold from hell), I’m in a bit of a downward swing. Depression is cruel mistress and she has me in her bony clutches. It has been rough wanting to do much of anything but I am forcing myself to do this.
I’m crocheting my son a dinosaur hat.
My first larger crochet project. Not so big I won’t finish it and the excited look in my son’s eye when he sees the progress keeps me going.
“Mom. You making that?” He says with chubby finger pointing at the pattern.
“Thank you, mom!” He squeals followed by a giant spaghetti sauce soaked kiss to my cheek.
Love that kid. And look! I did an ear flap!
The darker green piece in the last pic was for the muzzle. See? This is what it will look like (hopefully) when all is said and done. The colors are not exact but…
If you wanna take a crack at it or squirrel the pattern away for another day, check it on yarnspirations.com.
I’ve been fighting it for a week but it’s official. I have the plague.
It’s not that bad really. Just achy and sluggish, whiney, stuffy, and tired. I’m a joy to be around. I’m taking OTC drugs to get through the day. The good stuff from BEHIND the counter too! Nothing but the best for this little Petri dish of doom!
So now, looking at the commercial cup of coffee I’m drinking to counteract the drowsy effect of my meds, I feel like something is missing. I needs me a warm hug from outside of my cup not just the inside.
I needs me a…sock monkey!!!! I never understood why people had cozies until now. They are like stuffed animals for adults. Bringing comfort and joy to the ordinary.
Isn’t he cute?! I don’t know why he has only one in this picture but you can make yours with both. I know I will.
