Knitted Square Reindeer

  

I think I showed the little squares while I was making this reindeer, but not when he was finished.  Each little square has a french knot in the middle.  He just needed two scarves, one of each colour.

Tiny Reindeer

    

I like to make things in all sizes.  I have tried to make a crocheted reindeer in a small size, but wasn't happy with the results.  This one is a little cutie.  He is very small next to the Reno Reindeer.

Wallace and Gromit



  

Went to the Wallace and Gromit exhibition at acmi.  Great exhibition, lots of drawings and sets.  The detail is amazing.   Few characters missing, Bitzer and the Farmer.  Not a lot of Shawn the Sheep, but a couple of things from the movie.  Worth visiting if you are in Melbourne and a fan.

Calling him that because we are still working on the bathroom renovation and I worked on this simple crochet reindeer here and there and at night over the last two days

Reindeer on a Pocket

   

I showed this reindeer I made one time at Amigurumi at Can Do Books, I just didn't show what the reindeer was going onto.  This cream reindeer has a little pocket with a little reindeer on it.

Renovations and Knitter

  

  

Very little crafting done yesterday, was working on the bathroom renovation.  Removed more tiles, the cabinet, mirror and sink.  All that is left is the shower.
Something crafty that did arrive yesterday was an automatic knitter that I bought on Ebay for $5.  It will come in very handy at the Christmas Window Sit & Stitch.

Lawyer"s Wig

  

I was asked for the pattern for the lawyer's wig I made for Amigurumi Girl.  I didn't write down anything at the time because I thought she would be a one off thing.  So I have been making another wig and writing as I go.  I used the head of a larger reindeer, minus ears and antlers for the size.  The doll being made was about the same.  The wig has a crochet base and then loops sewn.

New Printer



We got a new printer.  It's a HP and a lot larger than all our other printers.   It can do A3 size paper, which is great, I often like to upsize patterns.  The down side is that we had to remove a shelf to accommodate it, which had books on it, luckily there was still lots of room on the new bookshelf.

Seventh Little Birdie

  

And the last one for now.  Bit of a flying ace this one, with his goggles, messenger bag, scarf, and precision do.
