Knitted Stuffed Animal Hammock

I have a lot of stuffed animals littered around the house. They are squishy and I love them. Some have homes but I have quite a few recently acquired ones that have nowhere to go. And I figured, why not make a new home for them? I have seen stuffed animal hammocks around the internet, and I thought this was the perfect solution! But instead of buying something pre-made, why not make it myself? It seemed easy enough!

Diamond Knitting Scarf

I know it’s late in the season for scarves, but it is never too early to start one for the next season, and this one does take a little time! I wanted to do a block pattern, circular scarf. But I also wanted the blocks to have some unity, so I decided to knit a diamond pattern into each of the large blocks.

Knitted D20

I love dice. Every board gamer I know has a collection of dice ranging in type, size, and style. I feel like half of the dice that I’ve collected aren’t even useful… What do you mean I rolled a sheep??!?! I wanted a 6!! For many gamers, the D20 is an iconic symbol as its used throughout the gamer and RPG hobby; from magic the gathering spin-downs to the classic D20 of Dungeons and Dragons. And this got me thinking, what if I made a really big one? Knitting is my comfort zone so a knitted D20 sounded like the perfect project.

Knitted Blanket

I adore knitting. I have since I was a child and it was often joked that I am an old soul because of the hobbies I had growing up. Also, the way I talked. Also, because I’m pretty sure I’m an old soul. But, due to my love for the hobby, I seem to be the recipient of yarn donations for which I am extremely grateful because the hobby can end up being a bit expensive. I think I could fill a bathtub full of yarn. Which, kind of sounds fun… But I found myself with an armful of yarn made for baby-targets product projects, so I thought, why not try to make a blanket.

Making a Hero

Who doesn’t love superheroes? Right now both Marvel and DC have become extremely popular, filled with recognized and beloved characters. I love creating these knitted figures of popular characters. Overall I have made Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Vision, Batman, Harley Quinn, Darth Vader, and Belle. They make wonderful gifts so I have had to part with many over the years.
