Here's a Battletoads cross stitch sampler, based on the classic NES game. I created it as a custom order for one of my Etsy customers. It made a pleasant change from my usual faux-Victorian cross-stitchery! If you are hankering after a custom cross stitch sampler, do have a peek in my Knit For Victory Etsy shop to see the sizes, frames, and a selection of the sampler styles on offer. I'm always happy to create custom projects, so drop me a line if you have an idea for something.

Jet Set Hat

The Jet Set Hat in Patons Rimple - a scintillating glimpse into the glamorous world of the 1960s business man.

"Moscow today - Copenhagen tomorrow and then on to Delhi and Montreal. This is how the fast-moving business men of the 60's travel - and this is what they wear! Knit it in Patons Rimple used double - use black for the best effect or one of the dark two-tone shades."

Adam Ant

I've been wanting to knit Adam Ant ever since seeing the original Prince Charming outfit in the V and A last year - and here he is! 12 inches tall and stuffed full of new romantic naughty intentions (otherwise known as polyester stuffing).

If you'd like to give Mr Ant a home, he's currently strutting around my Etsy shop, doing that Prince Charming dance. You know, that one.
