This is a Jawa doll I made for my boyfriend for Christmas. I used the pattern on Bitter Betty Blogs, with a few modifications. First time I had ever used conductive thread; it was a learning experience needless to say. Came out pretty great, though. I used the leg from an old pair of pants, and scraps of leather from an singleton glove.

I made paper cut silhouettes for my relatives I found the outlines of the shapes I needed, then used photoshop to but them together in the scene I wanted (making a different one for each family). I printed the design out in light gray on the back of the paper, then cut it out with a utility knife and framed it (using a piece of scrapbooking paper for the mat). I was very proud of myself, no nicks in the fingers!

It’s sitting on bubble wrap because I didn’t remember to take pictures until I was packing them to send, oops.

 

I made these for my mom; I used Rowan Kidsilk Haze and the white rabbit wrist-ees pattern by tiny owl knits on Ravelry. Loved working with this yarn again, it’s so soft. You can’t tell very well, but there are three colors; white, grey, and blue.

This is a scarf I made using the Wisp pattern I found on Knitty. I used Rowan Kidsilk Haze and bamboo buttons. It took me a while to get the pattern down; not that it is hard but I haven’t done many lace patterns. Love this scarf! Made it as a gift for a friend who lives in Hawaii – I thought it would be a pretty accessory that wouldn’t be too hot.
