Many friends are so supportive once they heard me saying I am selling knitted dolls.... Some of them immediately give me order! Thank you so much!!!


The interesting point is all are for new born or young baby.

Yesterday morning, I was crossing the harbor by ferry!!!! 
The BEST transport in HK!!!!

Knitted Man & Stop Motion Animation

After knitting bunnies, I made a MAN! hahahah
but not an oridinary man..... He is a character from a SciFi short film, Haexagon
The man is using the basic method but the suit was fun to make.
1. knit 2 pants in flat, separately
2. join them together with extra sts for the body
3. add 2 sleeves (I made in circular as I hate sew them at the end, esp in dark color yarn)
4. after join the sleeves to the body, then knit the cap in 2 sides
5. join the hat's 2 sides together
6. add a zipper
7. hand stitch 2 logo badges 
8. hand stitch the brand name :P
 sooooo much fun to making this!!!!

As a gift for the team of this short film, so I think I should make a little "short film" too!!!!

So, try the first time to make a Stop Motion Animation with iMovie. Using music from iMovie and help from my bf (of cos). 

Voila!!!!!

Sharing with you here is my FIRST EVER Stop Motion Animation!!!!
