More of Pooh

Frappe is storming along… I’m whizzing up the last sleeve today. Unfortunately there’s nothing interesting or exciting to tell or show you about it – quick, easy, looks good so far.

So in the absence of exciting knitting news, want to see my latest embellished Poohs?

(For anyone confused by that question see my post “The Embellishment of Pooh” for how I came to doodle on an E. H. Shepard drawing of Pooh Bear. )

I have been watching far too much Star Trek whilst knitting…therefore I felt compelled to try a “Spock Pooh”!

He is supposed to be phasering a wibbley orange alien who is disintegrating on the right of the picture…not sure this one worked too well!

Then of course, I realised I hadn’t had a “Knitting Pooh”!

Knitting Pooh is wearing a Noro bobble hat, an Aran Jumper and hand dyed variegated socks! He is knitting from Rowan’s little known book “Knitting Bear Knits”… 😉

Ben felt left out at this point and had to embellish a Pooh to reflect his current game – Bioshock.

That’s a Big Daddy and a little Sister….(play about 40 hours of the game if you feel the need to understand what’s going on here!!)

The standard of Poohs is ramping up now. I needed inspiration…I looked out of the window and saw my veggie patch…

This is my current favourite – Allotment Pooh!

Allotment Pooh is inspecting his carrots and radishes, runnerbeans in the background and a hanging basket on the right (hmmm the basket doesn’t quite work huh?) I was really pleased with the garden fork he’s holding!

I tried to show Thug my art work – apart from being blind, he really was just too sleepy to care!

OK – I admit it – it’s a thinly veiled excuse for cute cat photo!

    Love the pooh pics. Thug is blind? My Tigger had a stroke last friday and has lost his sight. Any tips to make his life easier?

    There is something about knitting and star trek that go together though! DS9 and my cardigan of doom seem to work very well!

    Thank you so much for your email about Thug. I have mislaid your email hence this being in your comments. Tigger seems to be doing well – climbing the stairs etc. Though as he is also very deaf so I won’t be letting him cross roads anytime soon!
