Twist and Cooper

Wow its been a busy week here at amigurumi barmy land. I've hardly stopped, I've been working hard on the next too bedtime omnipoms and they are fianlly finished.

 First up here is Twist.
Twist is ready for bed with her bunny slippers and blanket.

 I knitted her blanket out of a very fine sock yarn on 2mm needles. I wanted it to be to scale but I didn't realise at the time that this meant it was gonna take the same amount of time it takes to knit a big blanket. Knitting it was boring, fiddly and slow, I hated it. Half way through I wanted to chuck it in the bin and if it wasn't for the beautiful soft yarn with its pretty colours I think I might have. The weird thing is as soon as I'd finished it I loved it and wanted to make another straight away for a different doll. What can I say, we crafters are strange folk :)

Next is Cooper

Cooper has a bunny sleep suit on and his favourite story book ready for someone to read him a story.

I made Coopers story book using real book binding techniques and the mini book turned out great. I covered it with a silk ribbon which matched his eyes and found a motif of strawberries in my stash of pretty things I'll use one day. I like to think its a story about the omnipoms trying to make jam and getting in a very sticky mess :)

All together
So thats Twist, Ginger and Cooper the bedtime omnipoms.


Who's your favourite?

  3. Twist's slippers are brilliant! And I'm glad you knitted the blanket to scale, I think it was worth the headache as it's just perfect and wouldn't look nearly as good otherwise.

  17. They are all so cute! Twist's bunny slippers are to die for! I want a pair. Coopers bunny suit is fab too and his gorgeous little book! Some little person will love cuddling up to him and having a bedtime story read to them.

  21. They are all adorable but sadly Twist wins hands down. I cannot resist the little slippers :-) I think twist should come and stay with me for a little while.

  22. aaaw I have to say Cooper!Lovely, these are very clever. I bought my friend a book on this technique, however, she has only just started to knit so it may take her a while to learn! You must be so patient!
