robot factory

Originally uploaded by Jess Hutch.
I continue to knit robots for the Plush You! show at Schmancy in Seattle. Here's a photo of them on the drying rack, blocked and ready to sew up. As you can see, I knit them flat... and put off the seaming. It's my least favorite part, I guess that's one of the reasons I knit toys on double pointed needles and circulars almost exclusively. No seams! Also, because it's fun.

they look adorable all lying flat like that.

Wow, what a fascinating image! While still "cute", I have to admit, it's actually a little creepy seeing them flattened and without eyes. Amazing what a little stuffing can do. Must be the soul/spirit of the knitted robot! Great to see your process...

When I take the time to sew one together (like I did last night), I am sometimes discouraged by the way it's turning out... then I stick some eyes on it, stuff it, et voila, it has personality. It is such an odd and rewarding experience. Perhaps the stuffing *is* the soul!

There used to be a Kenner playset called the Star Wars Droid Factory, or something similar...this reminds me of it, for obvious reasons!
