Butterfly 07/13/2010
 
Knitting the butterfly idea came when I took loads of pictures of Butterflies when I visited Reiman Gardens recently.I started searching for patterns and landed here. The pattern was a butterfly puppet pattern. But tried to do something little different from the actual pattern.
Firstly, I choose a bigger needle (9mm) and started following the pattern as in the original. Finally for the wings, I choose the lower wing pattern along and used a 4mm needle. The final look of the butterfly was something like this,below.

Honey Bunny.. 07/05/2010
 
I simply enjoyed and loved doing this doll. It took me approximately a week to complete but it was total fun. Every time I completed one task, it gave me a complete satisfaction of doing something perfectly..

The first task was to knit the body and head.
Picture
The second step was to knit the hands and fit them appropriately.
Picture
The third step was to knit dress and make sure it matches and fits the honey bunny properly.
Picture
The final step was to knit the ears and fit them along with eyes, nose and bow appropriately.. Finally my honey bunny is ready.. To know more and about the pattern, please click here.

Decorative bowl 05/12/2010
 
If you want to start practicing knitting, small projects are always a perfect start and  this decorative bowl is ideal. I found this pattern in this website. Its a felted decorative bowl. The picture in that website itself was very attractive. So tried making one bowl  with the leftover yarn and it came out really pretty. I am liking it very much and want to do  similar to what it is in the website.
