Looney Toons: Gossamer

When I told an online friend I had learned how to make a heart shaped plushie… she instantly asked if I could make a Gossamer Plush.

Well up to that point I’d made just a pair of  cat toy hearts that were very even sided.  Gossamer has a bit of a long sided body so it took some searching to find the right shaped heart… but I think I did alright.

First Post: The cactuar!

So I started this blog to share pictures of some of my funner knit projects like….. a knit Cactuar!  Cactuars are creatures from the Final Fantasy series that look like this:

whereas my knit Cactuar looks like…..

Yes he is running the other way..... be afraid, very afraid!

Knit cactuar was inspired by my very first knit pair of socks.  (and of course Final Fantasy!) The main body resembles the stitch used at the heel of the socks, and the arms and legs are shaped like the heel of the sock.

How fast is plush cactuar?

— When you throw him across the room he really flies!

(Ok, yes that was a terrible joke.  But I actually demonstrated how “fast” my cactuar was for a few laughs!)
