max & the wolf


im sooooooooo close to being finished with this mammoth project ♥
i had the idea as soon as i saw the first trailer, and its taken AGES
to get the shape and size of the sweater right.. i am making it
up as i go along so ive had to re-knit the arms twice and
sew them in several different times. im not used to
knitting something so baggy...
tonight i finished the ears ♥
they stand up on their own and everything!
ill post a picture of them soon.
but! i must re-knit this crown because the points
are a bit too long i think? grrr....all this aside...
i should have the pattern up for sale on my
ravelry shop sometime this weekend!
fINALLY ♥

I found a fabulous girl today, she makes beautiful art and takes wonderful photos, and I thought of you when I found her. You´ve probably already discovered her, but if you haven´t, I think you´ll like her: http://www.theunicorndiaries.com/
