Holiday Sale and GIVEAWAY
Hi tumblr! I have two exciting announcements for you.
1) I have a new pattern out, and I will be giving the finished product to one lucky reblogger. It’s a Robin Hood/Peter Pan hat that fits pretty much any adult human head. You can buy the pattern on my Etsy or Ravelry shops, and you can reblog this post up to three times for a chance to win a finished hat.
2) To celebrate Thanksgiving and other upcoming holidays, all of my patterns are temporarily selling for just $5. My shops are full of dinosaurs and superheroes! Sale runs through 11:59pm on December 15.
I really appreciate your support! I’m trying to save money for grad school applications, and every little bit helps. More than that, though, I love hearing that my creations have made somebody smile :)
(Sorry for the repeat posting; I realized that some of the images weren’t working when I posted this as a link instead of a text post.)
I knit a Max Jumper from Where the Wild Things Are. This is my first sweater, as well as the largest project I’ve ever attempted, and I’m pretty happy with the result :) It’s over sized and wicked warm :3
Pattern can be bought here
Cats in jumpers. Just because.
Gryffindor arm warmers i was asked to make.
So, this is my friend, at it again. This is The Hulk, Bruce Banner. He is kind of two dolls and also one doll. The Hulk ‘suit’ is much bigger and taller than the typical doll she makes and that’s because…ready for this insanity…the Bruce Banner doll fits INSIDE him. Yeup. That’s what level of nutty knitting we are at.
Then, once Bruce comes out, he has his ripped-up pants and no glasses. But he also has little adorable heart underwear and a white undershirt, and then his Avengers-style outfit with little socks, shoes, pants and purple dress shirt. Oh…and the dress shirt has functional buttonholes. And of course, he would not be complete without his heart-rate monitoring watch!
Bruce has defined arms, hands, toes, even nipples and a butt, and he’s about the cutest thing ever! All the others, Deadpool, Tony Stark, Captain America and Loki are all works of hers as well.
Avatar Aang Airbending Gloves
(These are men’s size gloves, hence the slight bagginess) I promise I’ll write up the pattern soon!
My amazing knitting friend has created the ultimate billionaire philanthropist playboy, none other than Tony Stark himself. Tony Stark is a naked knit doll with a wardrobe. He has VERY tight, short briefs, in red of course, the arc reactor, and then a white dress shirt, black pants, black suit coat, tiny tiny knit bowtie(what the hell, right? My eyes would explode), little dress socks and shoes with laces and HEELS (because of course he demanded a little extra height) . He has big beautiful brown eyes, the proper facial hair, and he also has his Mark V suitcase, and a tumbler of scotch or something amber-ish colored. I’m not sure how she manages to create expressions that are so lively with just a few stitches of embroidery, but they really seem alive. OH, also his head is slightly bigger than Cap’s head, which I find very appropriate. :)
Naturally, while he stayed at my house for the photoshoot, Knit Cap had to attempt to keep him in line. (Knit Cap lives with me, while other knits live in other friends/relatives houses) But when it was time to send Tony on to his new home, Cap had a hard time saying farewell!
Small preview of who is up next in the photos there!
So, my friend, who you all have heard about by now, has sent me 3 new creations to photograph. I’m going to spread them out a little bit, so that no one collapses under the weight of knit-genius. Disclaimer is that I did not make any of these, and she doesn’t offer them for sale.
This is Knitpool. He is a naked knit Deadpool doll, complete with cancer sores, that has then had his clothes knitted, all accessories and weapons knitted, and he has 2 different masks for different expressions. His swords come out of their sheaths. His grenades are removable, all the waist pouches are /functional/, and his gun and knife also come out of their holster and sheath. Two hoods. One with the standard eyes and one with the o.O face. He has THUMBS, and tiny gloves that have thumbs that fit the thumbs….AHHHH I can’t stand how awesome it is. hahaha. He has little white socks on, and the boots are separate pieces, each. He has a /belt loop/ to tuck the belt tail into and the classic symbol as the buckle.
He has a belly button and nipples, and lets not forget…some Captain America boxer shorts, because…of course he does. He also has a taco for the same inexplicable yet awesome Deadpool-y reason. Being around Knit Cap for even a small amount of time caused him to totally lose sight of modesty and sense.
He stands same height as all the others, about 10 inches or so. Now…I have to go separate him from Cap again before he tries to take Cap’s shield.
Teeny Sanguini (Dragon Quest series)
I made this chart for the Teeny Sanguini, possibly my favourite monster in the Dragon Quest series. Feel free to use/improve, and if you do then please show me what you make :)
Space Invaders socks I knit using the “bmp” pattern from Knitty. About to make a 2nd pair!
