idle doodle

undersea enchantment
Today while I was deep in thought I doodled a little Jess Hutch-y undersea scene.

Turns out, knitting four 20-inch-long arms and legs for a Big Toy doesn't exactly make for gripping blog writing. I hope I have something fun and/or interesting to show later this week! In the meantime, idle doodles will have to do.

"Idle doodles will have to do" - someone needs to write a Gilbert & Sullivan-style tune with that lyric. Please.

Jess-
my boyfriend wants me to knit a vest for him--simple, and probably thin and tall, because he is both. do you have or know of any good patterns i should seek out?

Sorry to hijack your comments Jess, but Emily doesn't need a pattern to knit a vest. Just find gauge on a yarn he likes, measure him and multiply stitches per inch by width around. Knit a tube with a little ribbing. Bind off an inch or two on each side at the appropriate height for armholes. Neckline's a litte more work, but not too hard. Then pick up around neckline and armholes and knit a little ribbing.

Hi Jess,

Just discovered your toys on knitty.com. Maybe others have asked but have you considered a formal book to publish your toy patterns? I ask because you are not planning on printing any more copies of your patterns.
Cheers,
Patricia
