IHSW - March Conclusion

I hope everyone had a good hermitting weekend! I worked all weekend, but I still managed to progress well on "Everyone Brings Joy" from here:
to here:

and I finished my snake!!


It was a lot of fun to knit and put together. I really like the pattern and how it shapes the head well. I think I might have overstuffed it since the eyes were a little hard to do while passing the needle back and forth through the polyfil inside. 

But I'm happy with it and DD thinks it's fun to play with, so success! I have permission from Butterfly Love1 to post photos from her Etsy site, so these are the patterns I purchased:

Amigurumi flask
Amigurumi beaker
Amigurumi test tube - so cute!
Hot Air Balloon
Slinky Snake
Friendly Bugs
Big Friendly Kite

And there were so many I wanted, but didn't buy, like these Christmas ones:

and this cute ghost!
plus bacteria and blood cells!
- my inner science geek is going squee! 

You can knit all these with basic knitting skills, so even if you're a beginner, give it a shot. I've enjoyed both the bug and the snake and will be knitting up the rest some time soon. 

I didn't intend to post so many photos of knitting instead of stitching, but I love these patterns so much! 

Happy Stitching and knitting!

  2. Great stitching progress and that snake is adorable (and that is a saying a lot, since I am deathly afraid of snakes)!
    All of the knitting patterns are super cute.

    1. Aren't they? I feel like I need an Etsy wish list now. I'm not much for snakes either, even the stuffed ones usually, but this was much less realistic so it was no problem thankfully.

  3. So much cute!! Well done on everything...though I have to say that the elephant looks a wee bit alarmed to have that snake around its shoulders! =D

  10. Good progress on your stitching!! Your DD is set to have fun with those knitted pieces you are going to make. I guess the ones you did not buy you can make yourself after getting used to other patterns. Looking forward to see your yarny projects and stash grow:)

    1. Oh, I'm sure that one will hop into the cart some time before Halloween. I wonder if they make glow-in-the-dark yarn?
