My way of not knitting

In my last post I said that I really need to study and not to knit. Well, I've been studying, a lot I'd say. But somehow I've managed to knit too. I finished my Grannie's traditional pot holder in time and gave it to my mom. It actually took me only about an evening to finish the main part. I also made a red stockinette layer to cover the yarns on the wrong side.


And that's not all!

Another project I started, and finished, is Grey Toe the ferret . Amoena found the pattern from Pet Heaven and asked me to knit it for her. It took me only couple of days to finish it. Knitting this was fun, fast and easy. Main reason for that might be that my pot holder was very thick and tight knit, but this one was much looser.


The name of this little fellow comes from, surprise surprise, its grey toe. I ran out of brown yarn so I had to finish the last leg in grey. Amoena wanted it to be very hand made looking, and it sure is. She loves it. She even takes it to bed with her.

Lehmä-raukalla menee veri päähän. :D

En tunnista tosta ferettiä (tai mitä se suomeksi onkaan), mutta kivan näköinen otus. Vähän hassua että sen jalat ja korvat on eriväriset kuin vartalo.

Se on FRETTI. Se on niinku tämmönen. Ihan ohjeen mukaan tehty, sillä piti sen mukaan olla eriväriset jalat ja korvat.

Toi lehmä-patakinnas on btw vähän vaarallinen. Syttyy tosi herkästi tuleen. Jouduin toisen tommosen heittään roskiin, kun se kerran vähän roihahti... :P

Jeps, fretti. Ohjeen mukaan selkä on vaalempaa ja jalat tummempaa ruskeaa, joten on tuossa mun versiossa vähän enemmän eroa.

Ja tuo on siis ilmeisesti syy minkä takia mä aina otan muffinit ym pois uunista :P

Kyllä mä nyt tiesin millasia ne itse elukat on. O.o Kuka nyt noita nimiä suomeksi muistaa!

Onkohan se lehmä tehty Kiinassa? :P
