FO - Man Eating Beast

Polar Bear 6 Polar Bear 5 Polar Bear 4

This was a lot easier than I had anticipated. The only problem I ran into was finding eyeballs for it. There are NONE in Toronto. I looked at Michael's, local knitting and sewing stores, Zellers, Walmart, and even a make your own teddy bear store. None of them had safety eyes. Luckily, a small business in Thunder Bay sells them. I feel good for supporting them, plus I got the eyeballs I needed!

Knitting Mama!

I decided to be a bit creative today and make some tshirts. It's been awhile since I designed something, so I figured that this was as good a time as any.

Took several hours of labour in Photoshop after scanning a rough sketch to make it look as polished as I did. I'm very happy with the results! Now Mama doesn't only cook... she knits, too!

FO - Nick's Pirate Sweater

Pirate Sweater 7 Pirate Sweater 5 Pirate Sweater 6

I started this project on November 11th and finished today (December 5th). I spent many of these days actually not knitting... and probably did most of the work over the span of two weeks or so. The last couple of days have been spent knitting nothing other than this sweater, and the results are pleasing.

It's a bit big for Nick for now. You can't really tell in the picture, but it's almost like a little dress. Good to know that I actually made something for him that he'll end up growing into :)
