Hiccup the Non-Magical Dragon March 4, 2013

Hiccup the Non-Magical Dragon does not live by the sea
But he is very special and has a unique talent that no other non-magical dragons have

Hiccup discovered this talent by accident at a young age after eating a bowl of cereal with milk
After feeling super full, Hiccup started to hiccup and a little bubble came out of his little mouth

You see, Hiccup’s biggest dream was to be a super scary non-magical dragon and bring terror to all the other animals *RAWRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR*

But sadly, the dream was crush after that bowl of delicious cereal with milk
Since then, Hiccup discovered that if he started eating cereal with a little bit of soap, his bubbles would get bigger and bigger

One time, the bubble got so big it engulfed him and Hiccup ended up living in his own bubble for days! (This was an AH-HA moment for him)
The truth is, Hiccup still scares all the other animals!  He traps them in his gigantic bubbles!!! MUAHAHAHahahahahhahaha

Here comes Plucky! February 4, 2013

Plucky the Turkey comes out to play
Just in time for Valentine’s Day!

He went on vacation around September
And didn’t come back till late late December

He was hiding from Humans during this time
Avoiding all grocery stores with people shouting, “Mine!”

Plucky might be delicious but no one will ever know
When it’s near that time on the calender he will just pack and go!

 

 

Pattern for Turkey: From the shoulders down the pattern is exactly like the Penguin in Jean Greenhowe’s design. From the neck up, I was knitting and just going with the flow. Unfortunately I didn’t record my work and I probably won’t be able to recreate the exact same head the next time I do it :(. *sigh*

The Rumors are True October 11, 2012

There has been whispers on WordPress about the photos on my blog.
Yes, the rumors are all true!  My crazy and fluffy little dog, Teddie, takes all the creative photos on my blog!!!  *Hangs head in shame*

Teddie is such an amazing photographer and I didn’t want to share this secret with anyone but I couldn’t hide it anymore.

He has artistic eyes (when his fur are not covering his eyes) but is often distracted by smells (especially the smells near fire hydrants and at the base of tall trees)

In these photos, Teddie is sporting the latest camera gears: KnitKon D800 (Yellow/Orange), KnitKon D900S (Greay/Black), and Knitnon SLR 43X (Blue/Green). These are highly expensive cameras that even I’m not allowed to touch them!

Itchy’s Game October 5, 2012

Alligator Itchy is his name
He wants to share with you his little game

To play, Itchy will first hide in a pile of leaves
He’ll pretend to get lost and make you believe

Then when you are not aware
He’ll pop out and give you quite a scare

Depending if he’s hungry or full
He might just nudge you or turn you into wool

He is now ready to play with his owner, Peach 
Does he fail or does he succeed?

 

 

Pattern: KnitWit by Katie Boyette 

*I noticed some errors in the pattern when the stitches didn’t quite add up. The changes I made to the pattern are shown below in bold.

Row 28: P7, p2tog, p2, p2tog, p7 (18 sts)
Row 29: K6, k2tog, k2, ssk, k6 (16 sts)

With wrong sides held together, join jaws and begin body:
