Love making those sock dolls!

Here's some photos of a cute cat that I have made as another present for someone in my family. I really like how it's face turned out...so happy and friendly!

Hope she also likes the bunch of flowers that the cute cat will also be giving her this weekend.

A present...

Here's a close-up of a knitted present for someone who will be celebrating their birthday this month. I'm not showing the complete item just in case the intended receiver sees this post! I managed to knit it up really quick because it was such a great pattern and the yarn is beautiful (silk/merino). The photo actually shows the unfinished item because it has yet to be blocked (ie. soaked and then stretched so that the lace pattern really stands out).

I like it so much that I'm going to knit one up for myself soon...that is after I finish a few other presents. Working on some more sock dolls...

Molly the Cat

Here's another sock doll that I made for my sister for Christmas. My nephew seems to have now taken ownership of her (he even sleeps with her every night) so it looks like I will have to make a special one for him. They called her Molly...what a great name.

Here goes...sock dolls first up

Here are some of my latest sock dolls
...one lucky (or perhaps unlucky cat with no arms as yet) and a finished one for my brother (which he has already received and said that it was "awesome"). Orders are steadily arriving from other family members, mainly for their personal chinese horoscope animal. It's a pleasure to make these for those who appreciate them and will give them a good home.
