I know I mentioned something last week about a surprise. Well, it's another little give-away contest. Problem is, I can't think of a good idea for a contest, so until I can think of something fun for you to do, the prize will wait. (this has nothing to do with the prize being so cute I almost want to keep it for myself)
Another things is, if you haven't found me yet, I'm on Ravelry. My user-name is fuzzymitten, and you can find a bunch of my patterns listed under my real name. If you've bought some of my patterns, please add them to your queue or projects. I love seeing what people have knit. Also, I would love to see more ratings of my patterns, so I know which ones people really like, and which ones they don't.
If it hasn't been obvious before, I have a terrible time remembering little things. Like I said I would post instructions to make longer horns for the cow? We'll just ignore how long ago that was, and get on with it.
The horns are knit as I-cord on 4.5mm dpn's
Cast on 5 sts.
Work 5 rows in st st.
Next: k2, k2tog, k1.
Work 3 rows in st st.
Next: k1, k2tog, k1.
Break off yarn, thread end through remaining sts, then secure yarn end.
The bit between the horns is knit on 4mm needles
Cast on 6 sts.
Work 10 rows in garter stitch.
Sew the horns to the head just above the ears. Then sew on the extra bit, putting a tiny bit of stuffing under it as you sew it on. The cow as shown is knit just like the pattern, except I changed colours for the snout.
If you were wondering how I got Wayne's nose to be pink when he's knit from white, it's very simple (but might embarrass a big tough guy like him). Use a bit of light pink blush or face power and gently brush it onto the nose until it's the colour you want. The make-up will probably wash off if you wash the toy, but you can just add more powder after washing.
