Henry

I'm assuming this one will stretch out vertically as the other one did (Bob was knitted a while ago). I did the first one mainly as an exercise in intarsia.  It was going to be a surprise for my husband, but he came home early one day and saw it.  I was so upset, I decided to make a second one to go with the first (a better surprise this time!).  It is acrylic, but some kinda soft variety.

I had to go over with some cross stitching for the eyes, because there was no way to get that stare with the gauge I was using. Apologies to </a></b></a>phlegmy for stealing the Eraserhead idea!  If it's any consolation, here is the chicken scratch chart for Henry (and Bob, if anyone wants it)

Um, I have such a mathematical mind that I think the more complicated the intarsia, the more I enjoy it... meaning I don't know if it would be hard or not for someone else! I loved doing them both.

Oh my, those are so fantastic! Do you have fancy tricks to make the charts?

I scan the pic I want into photoshop, adjust it to be two-tone, overlap it with this, then play fill in the rectangles. There's probably a more efficient way to do it, but I'm a dork and like to make things hard for myself...
