Bats and black cats
How very Halloween sounding is that blog post title?
Last post I said I wanted to knit something that wasn’t food or caterpillar related, perhaps a ‘cute Halloween knit, Christmas presents, a little something for me, or a little something for Felix or Inkling…?’
Decided to first of all combine Halloween knit with an Inkling knit and a practical one too!
It’s a bat pacifier clip. Or dummy clip. I actually made two.
I crossed two free patterns together to make these, first of all Corrente com Lagarta (Pacifier Clip with a Caterpillar) by Mamã Martinho (for the idea mostly, but the chain too) and Bat Knitting Pattern by Linda Dawkins. I’ve used this pattern before for the wings of my flying eyeballs, which, are still hanging up two years on from that post…
The other thing I’ve finished this week is also kind of Halloween in a sense, and for Felix, and again another practical knit.
They are seat belt cosies as Felix has moved on to using a seat belt now! (She’s grown so fast!) Again, another free pattern – Seat belt snuggles by Chris Behme – and again, I made two, one for my car and one for her Yeah-Yeahs car. Here’s a close up of those adorable buttons!
As a slight aside, when asked what colour she wanted it, she responded with ‘any colour so long as it’s green’
How very Henry Ford!
I’ve got a few more projects on the go at the moment, all of them good stash busters, but more on those when they’re finished.
