That Knitting Kidd
Today’s the final day to get my Groot pattern for free through Ravelry.

If you haven’t done so yet, do so. 

If you don’t care, then don’t. I don’t care.

IT IS DONE.

I have completed my knitted Groot. The pattern is up for free for a limited time on my Ravelry page (offer expires Sept. 12, 2014). After this date, it’ll be for sale on both Ravelry and Etsy.

The finished product is up for sale on my Etsy page. Act now!

Ugh, this arm design sucks…

Well, to the next attempt we go.

What do you like to watch/listen to while you knit?

I get most of my knitting done when I’m watching really upsetting, violent, or depressing documentaries and movies. There’s nothing quite like knitting lace while mainlining Breaking Bad.

I crochet (if its ok that I put this here) usually to dub step. Makes me feel like a badass.

Crocheters are more than welcome to answer any question of the week they so choose.

I like to knit or crochet to my favourite tv show at that present time. Currently it’s Criminal Minds!

This might be a bit nerdy, but I really like listening to let’s plays while knitting! I knitted my last two hats while listening to the Game Grumps playthrough of Kirby’s Epic Yarn…Which, actually, gave me a lot of inspiration for future knitting projects~

I’m still a total beginner, so it’s a simple enough thing to listen to, while also being able to follow along with patterns and/or writing down what I’ve done so far.

I actually tend to knit while waiting for the computer to crunch turns in Civ 5. It’s a good use of time.

So, I stuffed the body of my GROOT, turns out I am making a chubby, cuddly Groot, as opposed to a stylish, stick-figure Groot.

Such is life.

Edit. I have some safety eyes that I’m not sure if i want to use or not. They’re blue, instead of plain black is the problem. Use those, embroider eyes, or go buy some black safety eyes? What do you think?

Guardians of the Galaxy Wee Lil Groot Amigurumi by Spudsstitches “I loved the movie and just had to make one :)
Makes the perfect deskmate!” Check out Spudstiches crochet Groot! ITS SO CUTE!
Edit: OMG YOU GUYS THEY HAVE IT UP FOR SALE!

I’m currently working on a knit version of this. Not going that small, though. I might have two versions by the time I’m done, if a small one would be preferred.

I shall post pictures as soon as reasonable.

You know what would be cool? If someone went through Gravity Falls and figured out how to make Mabel’s sweaters.

Especially this one. Because it’s amazing.

I’m back from camp. >.>

….and I’m working on this bitching cardigan! My hope is that I’ll look grown-up and professional by the time my practicum/interviews come around. Scary stuff.

I’m using Wool of the Andes Icicle Heather. I’m really enjoying the depth of colour here. You’ve got a nice, neutral blue, but then there’s some complexity - hints of green and purple. Much like.

The pattern came in this book that had been on clearance. A month after I bought it, this giant list of corrections came out. Much sadness. I was hoping to have a nice, print copy of patterns for once. Now there’s pen all over it. And 3/4 of the patterns had to be changed! (They also said they weren’t re-printing)

Pattern (Non-Ravelry): link.

My sister Wants me to make this object for one of her daughters. Maybe both. Thing is, is that the pattern is pay for - and it mentions some crocheting involved. I’m very hesitant to purchase a pattern that may require skills I do not have.

Has anyone made this before?

Does anyone know of a pattern like this that I could make instead (that doesn’t threaten crochet-related doom)?

I am out at camp for the summer. I will update when/as I can.
