Bears and ostriches, oh my!

In the past week, I've come across a few Ravelers who have knitted up some of my toy designs!  I'm always excited to see what colors and yarns people choose for their projects, and it's also nice to know that people appreciate your work. 

This first one was completed at the very end of 2010 by lundr.  She used some Malabrigo Rasta (interestingly enough, purchased at Loopy yarns here in town, though she is from Kentucky I believe) in Coronilla to knit up and adorably googly Mr. Nubbins, and I love the variation on the bowtie! 

I also came across the first person to knit any of my Malabrigo Book 3 designs on Ravelry - AngLouise from Minnesota wins the prize for knitting my Stuffed Ostrich pattern using Malabrigo Worsted in Bobby Blue and  Snow Bird.  I'm impressed with how similar those two colors are to the ones called for in the pattern - I knit the prototype using Malabrigo Twist in Teal Feather and Tender!

  1. I love to look on Ravelry at the projects people have made from my patterns. I'm constantly stalking people's project pages. It's a lot of fun! These two project look adorable. :)
