Wow! This week is flowing with blog posts! Anyways, Picture of the Week Episode#6 starts in 3........2.........1...........Action!
Surprise! Happy Halloween! The Tiny Ghost has arrived! This was one of my secret patterns, and now I must present it! :D
As a Halloween special, I welcome you: Tiny Ghost!
Enjoy your Tiny Ghost! Find something fun to create with it, especially since Halloween is coming!
-Tiny :D :D :D
Random...but do you like the rainbow 'Hi'? Well, hi! Anyways, that's all for now. It might be double-blog day, you'll never know...
Due to copyright, this pattern is currently "undercover" until further notice. (That means I won't publish it on another site such as Ravelry.) I'm eventually going to send a letter regarding publishing this pattern, so we shall see...
Tiny Harry Potter doesn't have his robes yet because he is currently at Uncle Vernon's house. He only has his wand for his homework, I think Hogwarts allows that. Ok, here is the pattern! I'm so proud I finally finished it, but enough with the talking. Action!
Tiny Harry Potter seems to want to practice some tiny levitation on a tiny ball of yarn.
~Fingering-weight yarn in 4 different colors:
Scraps of Black: Hair
Brown: Shirt and Arms
Scraps of Dark Pink, Pink, or Red: Mouth
~Sewing thread in black: Eyes and Glasses
~Size 0 Double-Pointed Knitting Needles (2 mm)
~Tiny amount of stuffing
~A tapestry needle
~A sewing needle
If you use the recommended yarn and needles,
the finished size will be about a little over than 1''.
None! Just make sure you knit tight enough so the stuffing won't poke through.
This is because there are certain techniques (that are however simple) when putting the features in.
For a list of abbreviations that may have been used in this pattern, click here.
Legs: With Blue, CO 2 sts onto 1 needle to work as an icord. Knit 3 rows of icord. Cut the yarn, and with the sts still on the needle, set it aside to work later. Make a second leg, just like the first one, except without cutting the yarn. Join the legs by placing both legs onto one needle. Be sure to keep the working yarn at either ends of the work, just not in the middle. Now you have 4 sts.
Body: Rnd#1: (Work as icord) [Kfb] 4 times (8 sts)
Distribute the sts onto 3 needles and join in a round.
Rnd#2: K3, Kfb, K4 (9 sts)
Switch to brown.
Switch to skin color.
Rnd#7: [K2tog, k1] 3 times (6 sts)
Rnd#8: [Kfb, k1] 3 times (9 sts)
Stuff! Because the piece is small, use a knitting needle or crochet hook to poke the stuffing in.
Rnd#12: [K2tog, k1] 3 times (6 sts)
Cut the yarn, and pull it tightly through the sts with your tapestry needle.
Eyes: With your black sewing thread, embroider the eyes. Place them in the middle of the head about a knit at and a half apart.
Glasses: Also using your black sewing thread, embroider the glasses by surrounding each eye with the backstitch and using on long st to connect both parts of the glasses together.
Mouth: With your dark pink or red yarn, embroider the mouth using 1 stitch (the width of a knit st) just below the glasses.
Hair: With your black yarn, embroider the hair. If you want, you could make it messy on purpose! After all, Harry Potter did have messy hair.
Arms: With shirt color, CO 2 sts onto 1 needle to knit an icord. Knit for 10 rows. (If you can crochet, you can also just chain 10.) Cut the yarn, and pull it tightly through the sts with your tapestry needle. Keeping the tapestry needle in your work, pull it though the body at the top of the shirt. Make sure to have an even amount of yarn stick through the body, so it looks like two arms. After that, weave in the loose ends.
Hands: After assembling the arms, with your skin color yarn, embroider the hands by continuously wrapping the yarn around each of the ends of the arms. Weave in the loose ends.
Wand: With brown, make a slip knot onto one needle, and knit it normally. Slip the stitch off the needle. Continue to do this 6 more times. (Or, if you crochet, you can make a slip knot, and chain 6.)
Finishing: With the loose ends of the wand and arms, attach the wand to one of the arms using small, hidden stitches. Weave in any of the other loose ends, too. You're finished!
Enjoy your Tiny Harry Potter! Thanks for visiting, and have a nice day!
Well, if you didn't recognize this one, just so you know, she's new here! She's been with the Ghosties for a long time, but I could never take a picture of her. I knitted her today, from the pattern of Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi by Anna Hrachovec. I just added on a mouth. I recommend this book to knitters who love tiny things, prefer small projects, or just want to try something new.
I love those ghosts! They're so cute! I loved how they turned out; they fit the Halloween theme. Anyways, good day to all! :)
It's coming soon...it's coming...yeah, I shouldn't really give much of a clue. Anyways, Halloween is also coming, so stay tuned! Also, this is really random, but I finished the Hunger Games Book. It was so awesome! Now, I really, really want to read the 2nd one. Anyways, good day to all!
Hey guys! I haven't posted "Picture of the Week" in a while! Homework. That's my excuse. Well, I do have a life, and when I have a bunch of homework on the weekend, I'm usually not even allowed on the computer. 'Picture of the Week Episode#3' will start in 5.......4........3.......2......1.......Blast off! No, not really.
Guess what! I actually made another profile! This one is for the Pixibun.
Profile for: The Pixibun
About: The Pixibun is a pastel-colored tiny creature that snuggles next to you in bed when you're sleeping. They love to sleep, and they sound like a soft, hight-pitched giggle when they speak. They are very friendly, and often travel bed to bed by hopping. Legend says that they're the Pixi's pets, but no one is quite sure yet.
Habitat: Your soft, snuggly pillow, or a nice flower bed.
Favorite Activity: Sleeping and Snuggling!
Color: Pastel colors, bright ears, black eyes, and a pink mouth, which they also smell with, besides taste.
Where you may Find them: In your dreams! Haha! No, seriously. You're sleeping when they ever come out.
Signs of a Pixibun: You can tell if it's in your room if you're laughing or talking in your sleep. (Someone will tell you, I hope...) They usually sleep in babies' rooms, though. They are less afraid of them, especially the happy babies that love to smile and laugh.
Hello there! Welcome to my little world of wonder. I'm Phia,(sometimes known as Tiny) a fourteen year-old knitter and crocheter that especially loves making tiny things. I also enjoy dance, gymnastics, drawing, writing, photography, and a ton of other things, especially fun! My favorite color, if you couldn't guess, is orange, though I honestly love anything colorful. ^_^
I currently design tiny amigurumi things.
As you are following this blog, beware of my extreme procrastination. (Hehehe...)
Here's a little glimpse of my photography journey on Flickr...
We also have a Ravelry Group!
I may have mentioned that I love writing. If I didn't, now you know! I'm currently writing a series called Abracadabee, so here is a preview!
"When will you come back, momma?"
"When your job is done. Bye Leesee, I'll miss you."
"WAIT! What's my job?"
An Abracadabee is a rare person who has ghostly powers. One whose parent has strong enough power will pass it down to their child. Now, they are being searched for. They all had to split up in different cities and find their gift. Their job. Leesee spent those last three years seeking that. She may spend her whole life, unless the environment trusts her as someone they truly don't know. Someone that isn't her.
Chapter#1: The Mystery on Earth
Chapter#2: Thoughts to Fly Past
Chapter#3: Diary Be Gone
Even though this book is going slow, I plan to publish it one day. That unfortunately means I can't post any more of the chapters. Sorry about that! I'll be sure to post some illustrations though. :)
