My nephew spend the past week in Children's Hospital, so I made a quick card to send him. I used my fave get well set, from The Cat's Pajamas, and added one of the iron-on metal studs Jodi gave me. They work great with my I-rock! I went with a black and white theme.
My sister called this morning and told me that friends of hers had lost their five month old baby yesterday. After giving my sympathies, I assured her I had a set of "loss of a child" sympathy verses. She was a bit stunned, then remembered I have pretty much all occasions covered with stamps. I told her that I had purchased a lovely sympathy set from Papertrey Ink, and added the "loss of a child" and "loss of a pet" sets to go along with it.
This is a surprise for Olli, who has his first hockey tournament this weekend. I knew the Penquins were his fave team, so I called and asked his fave player's number, skin tone and hair color. I got the basic pattern from Knits With Sticks. I think the head is a bit floppy and pry would adapt with the other doll pattern I have to make the head knit with the body. I did it all in the round except the head... couldn't figure out how to do the hair that way!
Here is the back view. I did a few less rows on the head, I was running out of the yarn for the hair. I think it is a LOT shorter than the pattern called for- I cut out at least ten rows on the head.
Have a great weekend!
