I am totally gettting a head start on my Chrismas knitting. I have a brother-in-law whose name is Josh. He is a complicated person to knit for because his interests are so varried. I called my step sister up the other day and she gave me the idea of knitting him a guitar pillow. After searching for a guitar chart and having no luck I decided to use my computer knowledge. I did a search for guitar pixel art and found out that pixel art is done like a chart. Woah … and I was able to use that to my advantage hehe. Hope he likes it !!
That is awesome! I am duly impressed!
That is so awesome! Did you use intarsia or duplicate stitch? Dontcha wish Christmas was sooner so you could give it to him?
I did intarsia cuz I’m not brave enough to do duplicate stitch yet !! LOL Plus dealing with like 5 colors was a mess !!! I can’t tell you how many times I had to redo his name !! Doh ! I forgot to stop the hook on the J. Doh ! I for got to stop the curve on the S. Doh! I forgot to make that part white lol… And on and on :doh: But I think it turned out good enough. Yeah now I am dying for him to see it but I have to keep it hidden until then. That’s why I posted it here hehe :lol: You guys can see my little secrets before anyone else can :lol:
Great idea to start early! It looks fabulous!
Very very good! I’ve never tried intarsia but want too…my plan is to figure it out before Christmas so I can use it to do some gifts…any suggestions on resources to learn?
I really do like that pillow!
This is the website Ingrid showed me a while back…
For me, instead of using bobbins I use clothespins. I saw that on a website somewhere but I can’t remember where it was. I just think they handle better.
Hope that helps you out !
I’m not perfect at it, but when it is in a pillow it totally doesn’t matter hehe !
Now that is one cool pillow!
Wow! That looks great - I’m sure he’ll appreciate it!!
I love it! That’s too cute.
