Bug Cups (finished)

Two of the three cups turned out nice!




The firefly cup (with dark background) not so much.

Bug motifs

Three cups with new motifs, ready to be glazed: fireflies, lady bugs, and bumble bees. I'm curious to see how these turn out, especially the fireflies with its dark background.

Puppies and Kitties

Some knitted portraits of friends' and family's pets. First, the kitties:


Tank and Roxy (roommates)
Roxy
Tank: a very large, polydactyl cat

Tank and Roxy in progress. Tank should have been much larger than Roxy, but Roxy turned out bigger!
Sundance and Melody, another pair of roommates
Melody: possibly the sweetest kitty currently living
Sundance
And lastly, "Not Bob," or Biddy. No photo of the actual cat available... she was very shy. Also unusual in that she was a female orange tabby.

And now the puppies:

Jinx, a Beagle mix. I haven't found a way to make white bellies yet.
But I can make spots.
Jinx, named after a Bond girl.
Freddie, a Beagle-Basset mix

Freddie -- look at those speckles!
