Morrissey doll

Just finished Morrissey, and he's looking for a new home.

He's around 12 inches tall and is hand knitted by me, from my own pattern. I'd like to think of this as a Hatful Of Hollow circa-1984 type Morrissey, with his off the shoulder shirt and bunch of gladioli.

What's he stuffed with? Misery and bad poetry. Actually, no, it's polyester stuffing but the other things sound better. His shirt isn't sewn into position so you can have fun adjusting it into various angst-ridden poses. It's not removeable though as the bunch of flowers are attached to his tiny knitted hand.

Hmm... now I've finished him, I'd like to knit a Johnny Marr *adds idea to knit list*.

Seagull knitting pattern

If you'd like to knit a seagull, you can buy this gull knitting pattern from my Etsy shop! This is a small herring gull, about 5 inches tall. The life-size version that you can see in The Wool Bar will be along soon...
This small version is super-cute, well-behaved, and knits up quickly on 4mm needles. I've included detailed step-by-step photos on how to make the wire feet in the four page PDF pattern.
