Stuffies WITH Faces

My stuffies are done!  Rather than got through the frustration of embroidering on their features, as the pattern called for, I decided to go a different route.  Either way, say hello to my stuffies WITH faces above! Looking at the photo, you can tell what I did.  I got some pom poms, and grabbed my […]

Stuffies Without Faces

Yup! My stuffies from Annie’ Knit Animal Friends are coming along, though they are currently stuffies without faces.  I’m still deciding on how to go about that.  I’ll tell you why I don’t want to do what the patterns recommend in a sec. First of all, the doggie looks much better than the anemic-ly stuff […]

Knitting Over Lunch at Work

The government entity I work for is having a “Knitting Over Lunch” group once a week.  A lady from another department runs and teaches it.  I’ve gone twice now. It’s awesome to see different people from different departments and how diverse our knitting group is, and not just in skill level.  Beginners are certainly welcome […]
