Blue/Purple Puppet Critter for Spirit Jump

Photo note:

"Making puppets came about thanks to school homework projects my kids have had over the years. Where they have been assigned a writing project involving writing a play, making props and of course, making their puppets - then later performing it for the younger grades. Anyway.... My kids and I have had a lot of fun "perfecting" this project.

A collaborative work.

This puppet is going to a young man suffering from leukemia and yet who continues to mentor and work with children."

Braided Tie Booties

Braided Tie Booties, originally uploaded by choppedtomatoes.
Photo note:

"I bought a HUGE cone of teal cotton from Cancer Research Wales a while back, and 3 very time-consuming dishcloths later (with hardly a dent in the cone must I add), I had put it away in the cupboard and didn't want to look at it again! When my sister came to visit she brought along some of her yarn, and I 'inherited' a few balls of dark brown soft cotton... I loved the contrast between the two colours so I decided to knit them both together for these booties.

To fit baby of 0-3 months

1 colour double knitting weight yarn
1 fingering/baby weight yarn in a contrasting colour
1 pair of 3mm needles

20sts and 30 rows = 10cm square over stockinette (stocking) stitch using 3mm needles
k = knit
k2tog = knit the next 2 stitches together
m1 = make stitch by picking up yarn before next stitch and knitting into the back of made loop
p = purl
p2tog = purl next 2 stitches together
sl = slip next stitch
yo = yarn around needle

This pattern is available for free on my blog

Boa Me Na Me Mmoa Wo African Square for Macmillan Comfort Blanket

Photo note:

"This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download
download now

In association with The Knitter magazine, the Macmillan foundation are asking knitters to knit up squares 8 inches x 8 inches to be sewn into comfort blankets.

Blankets that are donated to Macmillan will be used to support and raise awareness of the charity’s campaign to freeze out fuel poverty for cancer patients.

This square was specifically designed for this purpose and uses an African theme as inspiration and the symbol in the middle means Boa Me Na Me Mmoa Wo
Translated from Andinkra this symbol meansHelp Me, and Let me Help You
And the literal meaning of this is Strength through Unity, Co-operation and Mutual Benefit.

I entered this square into the design competition for The Knitter, and although it did not win a 1st or 2nd place, it was given its own special Highly Commended award for use of colour technique and vibrant design. The main purpose though, is to be able to share a chart with knitters.

Breast Cancer Charity Scarf (in progress)

Beautiful scarf~

This knitter tells us:

"Side project started today.

Breast Cancer Charity Scarf
Broomstick Lace Crochet; Ch 36 across
Yarn: Bernat Baby Sport (Bulk roll) 3 weight in Baby Pink Marble
Hook: US 4.25 (G)
Needle: US 15mm
Dimensions: width 8" aimed length 60"
View how-to videos here:

My local yarn store (Renaissance Yarns; has a weekly group which invites anyone to pop in and work on scarves which will be donated to patients of Breast Cancer. I saw this, and as I epically failed jumping in on the leprosy bandage charity drive (no one nearby sold the specified yarn..grrr), I knew I had to do it.

First, I had to obtain pink yarn. I am not a pink girl (secretly, mayhaps, but will never admit to it!). I had to find a relatively inexpensive yarn which was sturdy, low maintenance and soft. These concepts do not always coincide in yarn. Success: a large bundle of pink 'n white yarn procured, on sale no less. For a middle-of-the-road type of yarn, it's kinda fuzzy and soft to the touch, so I am happy with the product as it grows.

I did not want to do a basic scarf. While, yay I could perform 54953 DC's for the's a bit boring after row 10. I wanted to try the broomstick stitch which I saw on a video by Stitch Diva Studios for one of their patterns, so I decided to plunge forward and make the *entire* scarf in broomstick stitch (for practice) which turns out to be so easy. Plus, I mean, hey.. good karma to boot.

If you are interested in knitting pink scarves for the Breast Cancer charity purpose, can always contact Renaissance Yarns for more information..even mail those puppies in. It's for a great cause! Yarn type, shade of pink, and scarf style are entirely up to the knitter/crocheter.

(Side note: After looking at the picture I realized it looks like a fleet of pink yarn cheeze-its. XD)"

I make them talk for my little girl and say things like "bedeep!" I mean... they're aliens.

Winner of our Knitted Alien Competition

Apparently (and I was living in a cave and didn't hear about this) there was a Knitted Alien Competition. Here is a quickie video and note about the winner:

"This is Swatchee, she is a scout alien from the planet Tenshen. The planet Ten-shen converts energy from knitted tension swatches into a life source for it's population. Sadly, owing to the popularity of free-forming and the reckless bravery of knitters who fail to knit a tension swatch, the creatures from Ten-shen are starting to die out.

Swatchee is tasked to use her many eyes to seek out tension swatches and transport the energy back to her planet. She is a good alien and a defender of her race.

Help Swatchee save her family by knitting a tension swatch for every project."

Swatchee was created by Sharon Newman from Bromley, Kent as part of the Knitted Alien competition at I Knit Day 2008.

First Day of Spring - OOAK handknit designer handbag / purse in celery green

Oh my! Has it been a long time since I've posted anything, or what? I've been busy with poetry things, and the writing life, so I've been posting more to my Artist's Way blog.

Thinking about spring knitting, I found this wonderful bag! Here's what the photographer says about it:

First Day of Spring - OOAK handknit designer handbag / purse in celery green

This unique bag is a result of a very long knitting session. Each and every stitch has been carefuly hand crafted one by one with great care for details. The plaited pattern gives this bag an original 3D texture. The bag has a very practical cotton lining with a pocket for your bits and pieces. The wooden handle is very comfortable and smoothly finished. The bottom of the bag is reinforced to make it sturdy. Refreshing, delicate green hue makes this bag an excellent spring - summer accessory.

*`*I'm very proud to offer my original and fresh designs and patterns!*`*
