J is for Jellyfish & O is for Octopus

More Alphabet knitting - an ongoing project for our grandchildren.

And thanks to Hansi Singh's "Amigurumi Knits" for some great knitted toys for some of the difficult letters of the Alphabet :-) In fact, I've plotted all the alphabet now except for the letter V. V is a problem - vulture and vampire are rather scary for very young children and they are not Australian critters, same applies to viper. Vixen might be the best idea - unfortunately we have plenty of feral foxes. If you can think of a good knitted toy for the letter V - please leave me a comment ... it doesn't necessarily have to be an animal.

Meanwhile, here are J and O ...

  2. thanks for those fab ideas, says she just having looked up velociraptors :-) wow! they had feathers! As yet though, our grandson is showing little interest in dinosaurs - he is into cars but I don't fancy trying to knit a Volkswagon or a Volvo!
    A Velvet Worm is a lovely idea - it would look great done in a chenille yarn ... thanks Carina

  4. Aren't they beautiful! hmmm with those pretty speckles ... I wonder if they make a chenille yarn with a bit of a metallic thread? guess I could hold a metallic sewing thread with a chenille yarn - that would be perfect ... :-)
