arms spread out like an airplane
monster number two
is no 'runway' model
(oh how corny)
but with freakishly long legs and a short torso
he will always tell you
from sock nub to sock nub
he's gonna save it all for you.
well the show is over... I sold the mini monkey and this large weird bunny before the doors even opened. Its a really odd picture, but I do scrunch up nicely and it's comfortable. So I SOLD OUT of all creatures knit or made of socks. Even the dinosaur left me. It was a long day but the bands were rockin' and roller derby chicks are always cool. The oddest thing was that everyone squeezed the crap out of my knit creatures. Like they were trying to find a dog squeaker in them. I also noticed it was mostly men who understood my Pluto t-shirts and laughed. I only sold one shirt to Pluto sympathizer it's ok, I really wanted to keep one for myself.
I would like to personally thank the a-hole from India who left a mile long comment of links to crap and then left a second one. Having to scroll and delete, rinse and repeat- was the highlight of my day.
and my last.
My father refused to cook it,
told me to throw it back before I killed it.
I lost all passion for fishing.
I mainly liked digging up worms for bait.
And yes, that is the one and only
9am class and I couldn't
or wouldn't get out of bed.
who is creative at 9am?
I fought a lot with my teachers.
I'm almost positive they hated me a bit.
I didn't want to talk about
'what it meant.'
I just wanted to make stuff.
Well its a first, even though I was not named. (i'm not complaining- still grateful for any exposure) These were the 'shady ladies'. The beauties I chose were real badasses: Baby Doe Tabor Belle Starr Etta Place with the Sundance Kid All the names are linked back to my personal shots of each piece and also have a description of these lovely ladies stories.
I'm letting a lot of pictures slide by that normally
I would not accept to be posted.
I have so much work to do that I can't (won't) spend
mucho time on getting the best shot.
*that means it looks better in person*
sterling silver bunny on heat treated copper.
thx to whomever sent me the finger monster.
I've forgotten who it was.
its time to make the rings.
They require much more attention than necklaces.
There are only a few who can wear each ring.
I will not size them.
I like to think of it as finding the easter egg
with your name on it.
ok so I wasn't done with knitting I guess.
I don't know how to knit.
I can only knit straight needles.
no fancy patterns for me.
I'm what they call "an angry knitter".
I swear a lot especially in the beginning.
Oh and I always knit 'too tight' I'm told (hence the swearing).
I found the pattern here thx Arlene!
I found the pattern online but for the life of me I can't remember or find where it was from. I would like to give credit to the 'unidentified alien pattern giver'.
I fudged the feet because I'm not a knitter I just play one on tv.
I made a tag for him that says 'YOU SEND ME INTO ORBIT'
to get a better visual on how this piece functions go here
TIP: the glue on the rubber cord ends only lasts about a year, so drill a hole and put a rivet through the end clasps and the cord.
Sometimes taking the extra time to do things like this, makes all the difference.
