Megan's Glovelets

Megan requested a pair of biker gloves with hole for the knuckles and here they are! They are made from Lion Brand Cotton Ease charcoal yarn. They should breathe and wear well. The buttons are from my antique stash. Enjoy Megan!

Since I am getting into the habit of writing down patterns I wrote this one down, too. I would say that these ended up being about a medium size, so I'll have to venture into making large and small sizes for the pattern, too. I am giving serious thought to making a pair for myself : )

Graham the Gremlin

Graham is the second pattern that I will offer in my shop. Here you can see that he was inspired by the fabulous Froderick. I went with a smaller version. He still isn't a quick bugger to make, but Graham is more manageable to replicate.And look! His pants and belt are removable. He's got to be interactive as well as charming. I am thinking that the patterns will look more like a comic bookish style with each creature alongside to give pointers to those that venture into the patterns.

Heart Gremlins

Well, now there are two! Ezekiel has a friend named Frances. I have decided to keep Ezekiel in my own personal collection. I made Frances for the pattern which will shortly be up in my Etsy shop. I played with the form a teensy bit, so Frances is a couple of rows shorter. I made a better heart and heart hole this time around.
I got a cute shot of Italics today while I was photographing the gremlins. He's checking to see how much sun is coming in by the window so that he can stretch out in the heat as soon as it moves across the floor.

Sneek Peek...what's to come...

What in the world? I don't think it's obvious what I've got pictured here, so I'll tell you.Ezekiel is being remade for the purpose of making a pattern. Yes, I said pattern. I am filling up my sketch book with scribblings of sc and st and tons of other senseless things that add up to a heart gremlin. The pattern will be available in my Etsy shop shortly as a PDF, so keep an eye out for it. In addition to the heart gremlin I will do 4 more patterns for the summer collection of Fuzfrenzy patterns.

I am so excited to share the fuz with everyone and I hope that you are excited to get an extra dose of it!
