Now that the Knit Picks catalog for March has arrived, I can show you all my favorite recent knit for them, the Praying Mantis, from Amigurumi Knits.
Clearly deep in contemplation, she’s a thoughtful one.
Also, being an outdoorsy sort, she can’t resist climbing a nice tree.
But she didn’t mind hanging out at work with me, either.
She found that Piggie, who regularly appears as my Ravatar image, is a very good listener.
But then she seemed to be getting just a little bit too close for comfort, so it was time to send her off to Washington for her professional photo shoot.
Knit from Wool of the Andes in Green Tea Heather and Fairy Tale (which is a really nice shade of purple) with two sets of bamboo DPNs. Chenille stems down the legs and in the thorax keep her upright, and fiberfill in her abdomen and head round her out (so to speak).
I really, really like knitting toys. I’m going to have to knit a Mantis for myself. With the right colors, I could totally make myself a little N’Grath.
