Crocheting Hobbes

Friday, January 11th, 2013

Here are some more photos of the Hobbes I crocheted for my brother.



In case you’re wondering, yes, the first several photos are in the wrong order. I tried, and I missed. Oh well.

For more details on the project, check out my Ravelry page.

This is a simple project that can be as fancy or simple as you can imagine – and it’s definitely not limited to Christmas, either!

Fixed: Free Knit-Stitch Photoshop Brushes!

Friday, December 16th, 2011

I uploaded these knit stitch Photoshop brushes back in October, but I’ve since learned that the original file didn’t include all of the brushes. Oops! I re-packaged them for you, so you should be good to go! Merry Christmas!

To create a canvas of lovely stockinette (that never curls!) simply do the following:

1. With either the single or the row of stitches, position your cursor at the upper left side of your canvas (or at desired start point).
2. While holding the shift key down, click and drag your cursor to the bottom of your canvas (or to desired stop point)
3. Repeat along the entire length of your imagined sweater-canvas.

For gorgeous fair-isle or stranded colorwork, simply use the “filled” knit brush in the color of your choice to go over individual stitches:
