I was once put on the naughty step by an agency I freelanced for. Everyone in the building was working like Roman galley slaves, constantly under pressure, literally seven days a week, putting in stupid hours every day. It was great for my bank balance but family life took a major hit.
Last night I found the "Fursona Generator" thanks to some Tumblr friends. I clicked through a few times and was laughing with tears streaming down my face.
My sense of humor is a bit warped. Here are a few of the ones I got right away. Just super quick sketches— I needed to do something fun. I need to go back and hit it again for more inspiration later on.
I got “Hipster skink. Its body is covered in occult sigils and runes which pulse ominously. It is a cheerleader.”
Brand new pattern: Fox Paws! Just stunning (even in cotton… can you just imagine it in something like Madelinetosh!?!) Not as difficult as you’d think… but requires TOTAL concentration when executing increases/decreases. It has helped me to make a “help sheet” with each step on a separate line so that I can check off when going along. Positively genius design!!!!!
This is my version of a flame stitch, inspired by vintage missoni, fall leaves, and bargello needlepoint books from the 1970s. It is called Fox Paws because it has these little interlocking feet in the pattern. This style of knitting creates wavy stripes without the need for floats or traditional color-work techniques. You can see that the back doesn’t have any weird stuff going on.
I’m really proud of this sample, it took 2 tries because I turned out to be allergic to the first yarn.
This pattern is due for release next Tuesday , the 9th. It is a relative of the petal cowl and builds on the skills and stitches introduced in that pattern.

I love it when a project is done and it even looks sort of like you wanted it to… these are some legwarmers for a neat little girl I know that dances… Her mom said ‘she likes pink’… and not too long after I acquired some really snazzy mohair that mixed perfectly with this RedHeart in my stash… Voila!
