hi! im new to the site and just wanted to share my first completed project! :D
I grew up in the 90s and was obsessed with Pokemon (Google it, if needed) as a kid, so i decided to intergrate that little nostalgia with my knitting project. of the vast variety of Pokemon characters, one of my favorites was always an odd-looking purple ball of gas called "Koffing" (pictures attatched). I always thougt he would make a cool beanie, so after a day or so of work i finished my beanie.
worked up in purple yarn with felt applique eyes and mouth which are hand-stitched into place, the end result is playful and recognizable to any true fan. all the twenty-something year olds who have seen it love it and easily recognize its grinning face.
so now im busy making some for friends along with a stuffed animal im currently designing :D
