My first robot!

I finally found a copy of Jessica Hutchison’s “Unusual Toys for You to Knit and Enjoy” and the robot you see above is my first creation.

There were a couple areas where I had trouble, mainly the intarsia and learning the long-tail method of casting on. The latter I mastered but the intarsia is something I need to work on. It gives me a good excuse to keep making robots!

    THAT is so cool. I imagine you knitting a whole collection of them in different colours and patterns.

    Wouldn’t it be neat if somehow you could knit in a real little door that you could open to its insides??? If so, what would you put in there?

    That’s a really amazing idea. Maybe instead of using stuffing, the insides are filled out with mini-knit robot tools and accessories. Or the tummy area could be lined and the items could live there.

    Very inspiring Jen!

    Now you have to do it D.

    I like the lined tummy idea, you could put any number of knitted or non-knitted things in there. Or just hide your stash.

    Congrats on your robot! He looks great! I too am looking for this book, and I’m getting to the point where I am willing to pay an embarrassingly large amount of money for this little pamphlet. Except that I can’t even find it on ebay. If you do have a source please share!
