little totoro 小龍貓

Well, I try to write it down on English, however, I am not good at English...., so below its how I make these little totoro.

Circular knitting needles number 0 (how long, I forgot..) Start with Turkish cast on method with 3 stitches both sides.

line 1: knit 3 stitches, the other side knit 3 stitches, too.
line 2: knit 1, increase 3 stitches on the same loop, knit 1 stitch; the other side do the same stitches line 3: knit 5 stitches; (same)
line 4: knit 1 stitch, knit front and back on same loop, knit 1 stitches, kfb, k1; (same)
line 5: knit 7 stitches;{ (the other side) knit 2 stitches, [ kfb 3 stitches, (then divided it into two sides), now we want to create the little tail, so do the I-code method on the outside stitches (3 stitches) 4 times, then reline the stitches in the same needle], knit 2 stitches}. So, it now have (with the tail stitches) 10 stitches
line 6: knit 7 stitches; (the other side) knit 2 stitches, knit 2 together, k2tog, k2tog, k2
line 7: knit 7 stitches; knit 7 stitches
line 8-10: k7 sts; k7 sts
line 11: knit 1 stitch, knit 2 together, k1, k2tog, k1; (the other side) same.
line 12: knit 2 stitches, knit front and back, knit 2 stitches; (the other side) k2, kfb, k2

 ------Now put the cotton into the body. ------

line 13: we now want to create the ear, so knit 3 stitches, then turn to the other side, keep knit the 3 stitches, (totally 6 stitches)
line 14-17: knit 6 stitches
line 18: combine 3 stitches together, combine 3 stitches together
line 19: knit the last 2 stitches together, bind off

Do the same way on the other ear. (and remember to close the little hole between the middle of the ears.)

Then the last job is put the eyes on the little totoro. Yes, it doesn't need to sew.

Enjoy your little totoro!!

Emily's socks monkey

I created my socks monkey about 2 or 3 months ago. After non-stop knitting, cardign, felt bags, socks, monkey socks...., my fingers finally has its voice-trigger finger (板機指). It's painful. Can't knitting, can't do anything. So, these days baking became my new hobby. I am so happy to find a baking supplies store which is in 內湖. And, Peter bought me a new oven from Costco. So, my latest jobs is making different cookies, and eat it. So happy.
