Sweetie's sister got me a pretty bag and a ton of yarn! Gio got me a pound of Caron yarn. . . which I might make a sweater with, not quite sure. . . and members of my family got me various novelty yarns.
I also have a ton of plushie work to do. . .
OH! I opened my copy of World of Knitted Toys! A lot of the things are worked on straight needles, which isn't really my cup o'tea (I hate seams) but if it's yours then you should most likely buy it. The pattern variety is great (It's not just twelve. . . . it's 47) and he simply assembly of the dolls gives me a boost of creativity. I can definitely see myself knitting up the snake, or the turtle, or the clown fish. . . or going with my own flow and turning the tiger into a lion, or the basic human pattern into a version of me! I think this is a great book overall, especially if you're just starting into knit amigurumi. I should probably also sneak in the fact that if you think about the pattern, the knit pieces can be converted to fabric pieces, and the dolls sewn together, hehe. So sneaky!
So long for now, I think it's time to bind off my sock aberration and start rolling up that pound of yarn!

In other news, Let's Knit Dinosaurs. Why? Because they're COOL. This site can hook you up, totally, hehe.
Enjoy winter break! And for all of you that got out early because you're in college, boo. For all of you who are too old to have a "winter break," so sorry. You can have a winter break in spirit!

All in all, it's a great site with creative knits, but there are some problems. I wish the archive had pictures, and that some of the patterns came with more pictures/better quality ones. . . but hey, genius and practicality can't always get along, can they?

This season, I'm excited to see Sally the Eco Fairy and this Dodecahedron.
Sometimes, I wish that knitty would come out less often, so I would have more time to make all the patterns. . . but most times, I wish a new knitty came out everyday!
Ah, if all my knitting wishes could come true. . . it would be a weird world indeed.

As for what's on my plate, well, I'll give some hints later when I have my camera, but I WILL say that it's a hat, I'm creating the pattern, it's cute, and I'm making more than one :D Guess, internet people, I dare you!

Anyway, on with the post! For all of you who have seen this youtube video and felt jealous, well, I have the remedy! This knitted fortune cookie would make a cute stocking stuffer, most definitely. Hooray for indigomuse!

Hehe, I couldn't resist when I found this while surfing the net! I felt a warm glow spread throughout my heart, just imagining what I could do with this idea. That coupled with Knitty's Rubber Caddy. . . well, you can imagine the gag gifts. I can only imagine. . .
Work on my onigiri is stalled since I can't get new needles for. . . lord knows how long. I have size 3, though, so I'll just redesign. Until then, I'm working on a straight needle bunny akin to what I posted by the lazy knitter. Such inspiration ^_^, thanks, lazy!

This piece looks a bit crazy, and I haven't made it myself (like I have with most patterns in my library), but I feel in the end any well-willing person who has mastered increasing and decreasing and. . . all the other stuff. . . will be able to manage him. AND HE'S SO CUTE! If anyone has the audacity to finish this, I'd love to see some photos. Try it!

I'm an avid knitter, and very skilled (if I may brag). With crochet, however, I'm HORRIBLE. That's why I have a treasure trove of knit amigurumi patterns: and I'd like to put them all together, to save people that want to start knitting amis the pain and blood I had to shed.
I'll put something up soon, okay?
