I'm giving this one away, but I wrote down everything I did so I can make one for myself later. I know he's not perfect...his hair is INSANE and his arms stick out. But I think he's good enough to give away. My roommate says he's adorable, and she even hates Nietzche. :roflhard:
I started it Saturday around 7 in the evening and finished about ten minutes after midnight Monday morning. The hair took me four sittings and about three hours!

How'd you do the hair?

They are adorable, what fun!!

Thanks, everyone!

For the hair, I threaded a strand of brown on a yarn needle, stuck it through a stitch in the head so it would hang out both sides, and tied it once in the middle. Repeat 46354537453 times and then give him a haircut! :D

He is hilarious! I love it! Who are you giving him to...your philosophy teacher?

Oh he is just so cute! What a great idea.

You could hang a little sign on him with one of Niet...sche niet oh forget it
with one of his 'sayings' on it! :D

That is too cool! Please write up a pattern for him. I would :heart: it!! Hey even better, why not submit it to Knitty!!!!!

Repeat with grey hair for Einstein! Love it!

Jan - I gave it to my philosophy professor from last quarter. She was thrilled with it. She says she's going to find him a throne. She said she went around trying to show it to everyone, but no one was around. I suppose that happens on the first day of classes.

FeministMama - I have the pattern written in a notebook. It needs to be cleaned up a bit before I post it anywhere - my shorthand is quirky. :roflhard: I didn't think it was quite Knitty (or any other publication, for that matter!) standard, but I am planning to stick it in on the Patterns forum here, and on my website if I ever get it up.

I love it!
I love it!!
I love it!!!

I think that years from now, you might wish you kept your very first one.

03-15-2006, 10:33 AM
True...but I'll make another one! I was afraid I would lose the desire to make another.

03-15-2006, 10:29 PM
He's great!

I'd make something similar for my philosophy prof, but he seems to be pondering "What IS an evil, evil professor?"
