I worked on Link last night for a short time. His main body, legs and boots are completed now. I have arms and head left. I still can't find my yellow yarn though so I may have to actually drive to town for some if I find it soonly. A bald Link is a sad Link LOL

Loomage - Knifty Knitter and others...

Okay, so remember a long time ago when I got my first loom? The SCARF LOOM from Hell! Well, the collection has been expanded and I've made a few things since.

Loomage Collection as of 2/2011
I also have a couple of books:

So far I've made a few hats, learned how to make socks (still learning that, though) and have joined a couple of great yahoo groups to learn more from. If anyone is interested in them, I will post the links. Just comment below.

I'll post more projects I do as I go, of course.

Current Projects

I'm not posting about H&N projects here, just all the others... Here's what I have in the works now:

Autumn Tones Throw

 This is the pile of a throw I've been working on for years and years! It has 101 squares of two different types, so you can imagine how tired of making the same thing over and over again could be... I'm finished with the solids and I only have about 30 more of the variegated squares to go before I can put it together - which in its own way will add another issue - Weaving in the Evil Ends Syndrome!!! UGH!

Pic2 - Finished Autumn Tones Throw

Here is a picture of what it will look like when it's finally finished [Pic2]. I am making it for someone special and had hoped to have it finished by Winter 2010, but alas...

Pic3 - Granny Square in Blue & Purple

Pic3 is just a HUGE granny square blanket that one of my sisters asked me to make for her for Christmas. However, once it got about 3 feet around - it started to feel like a chore, so... I know my limitations and probably won't be doing many more blankets in the future for anyone.

I do have one more throw in the planning process, but after that - no more unless I'm getting $PAID$ for them! *cheesy grin*

Pic4- Link (Zelda)

This is LINK from the Zelda Series. My son has a HUGE love for him and I've already made him a Link hat that he has his "adventures in the woods" in once in awhile. He is a bit of a geek (which I LOVE!) as far as Pokemon and Zelda stuff goes - which is kind of nice since Amigurumi is one of my favorite things to make!
I will post the original and translated pattern sites for this after I'm finished with it. However, I had to make corrections to the English version, so I'm not sure if I will just post MY version as well. Any preferences?
