Something for the big kid...

Whew, The lasts few weeks have flown by!
I'm taking Shannon Okey's (Knitgrrl) designing 101 online class, and it's really eating into my knitting time! (In a good way of course!)

I'm still working on the dress pattern. I have to leave it every now and then, just so it stays fun.

I have one finished item to share though! (hurrah) I didn't think i'd get it done in time but once I got stuck in it just came together :)

It's this guy, Made for my husband Paul's 36th birthday!


For those of you who aren't familiar with gaming, It's Eleanor's Big Daddy doll from the fantasic Bioshock 2.

Once i'd started him I found that you can buy an amazing plush replica from places like Tenacious toys (U.S) and Play(UK)

He's made of various bits and bobs from my stash, and was a real pleasure to create.
I could say Paul was enraptured with him...but that would be corny.

Oops! :)


  1. this is amazing! did you write down a pattern?

  2. Thanks :)

    No sorry, I didn't even think about it, I was rushing to get him done in time...he sort of grew off the needles. (I know that sounds ridiculous ;D)

  3. So neat! I love it! Keep that away from Henry, naturally. (Try that in a carnival and you'd get your eye poked out!!)
    So good to see you post!
    PS- can you believe wp is telling me that I don't own my "identity" what the..

  4. I do not know this character in the digital world, but in the real world, I love him!
