Introducing: Domenic

Domenic Duck

To ring in the start of spring, I'd like to introduce my newest pattern, Domenic.

Domenic Duck

Domenic was inspired by my little cousin once removed. When I found out he would be soon be joined by a little sibling, I told him I'd like to knit a toy for his little brother or sister and asked him what kind of animal he'd think they'd like. After a little thinking (and a little encouragement from mom) he decided resoundingly - a duck!!

Domenic Duck

Domenic is knit in the round from the bottom up and features a short row tail. The wings and beak are picked up from holders and worked using the magic loop technique. Knit seamlessly in a sturdy cotton yarn, Domenic can handle a lot of cuddling and go in the wash.

Small Knits (and Crochets!)

I finally got around to photographing a few items I'd made a while back, so I figured I'd do a brief FO Roundup (In chronological order, from first completed to most recent):

IMGP0339.JPG My first full crochet project: Medium Stash Basket in Lily's Sugar and Cream (leftovers from another project)

Finished it in a day back in August.


My second crochet project: Filigree Bowl.

It's essentially a doily that you stiffen over a bowl shape. I have to say that I found doily making quite fun. Finished in two days in August.


Easy Peasy Newborn Hat.

For a co-worker's baby shower last week, made from leftovers from a pair of socks. Took an evening to complete.


Saartje's Booties. These kill me, they are so tiny and cute. It has a fun construction as well (Although a surprisingly large amount of seaming). Also for my co-worker.


French Press Slippers. I need to find a way to felt them, but they're all knitted up.

Which is lucky. Because I made this of out leftover's from Mr. Cleaver's sweater from last Christmas (sensing a leftover-theme?) and I had two balls of it, but by the time I ran out of ball one, I had lost the second ball. So to finish the straps I had to spit-splice a LOT of ends to make it work, and even then I had to use the purple to make it double thick like the rest of the slipper.
