End of KAL?

Hello everyone!

I hope you all had fun with your Nauties! I'm thinking it's time to end the KAL. I'll leave the page up, but stop adding new people/maintaining it. What do you think?

Good Nautie yarn

I've been dying a lot of yarn for socks and whenever I knit them, there's always leftover yarn. For a while I was making baby hats with it, but now that I discovered Nautie, I think it is a great use for all those leftovers!

So here's my first Nautie, in a blue/brown pattern. I think the small, yet increasing circumference of the Nautie really accentuates the color pattern of this sock yarn well.

It seems like everyone who makes one Nautie eventually makes at least another. I am no different. There's a pink Nautie hanging from my knitting needles right now.

It takes me a long time but...

I've done it!
My poor Nautie was waiting for a head since April.
I didn't found any yarn in my stash to knit the head. First I thought that a blue head might be great but I was wrong. Then I have decided to wait 'til I found the perfect color for my Nautie.
I've finally found it in my Grandma's stash. As she didn't want to knit any more, she gave me all her leftovers skeins two weeks ago. His name is Léon ;o)
If you want to see more pictures of Léon, go to my blog.

Sorry for all the mistakes I may have done. English is not my mother tongue.

Miss Conduct's Nautie

20 ply 100 % Australian Wool. It's going to live on the sailboat as a pillow. I don't particularly enjoy knitting with this super scratchy wool. This is the 4th nautie I've made, and my favorite yarn is the chenille like 100% microfiber stuff. It makes them look cute, hides the holes so no stuffing can peak out, and it is so incredibly soft. But the giant nautie was fun to make. If only to say it was made! Used felt to make the eyes, they're sewn on. I don't think I'll make another really big one. Maybe if it's in chenille (quad-stranded??)

Nautie Knitters...

...I'll be away for a week. So if you wish to subscribe/need to be marked as finished it will have to wait a few days! In the meantime keep up those nautie thoughts!

Intro + Nautie

Hallo all. I've been watching this knit-along since I started my first Nautie, and now that I'm starting my second, I figured I may as well chime in. My name is Michael, and I am a fairly amateurish knitter from coastal BC. And I think I am the first guy to post roundabouts here!

This is my first Nautie, Tweaky . He was knit on 3.25 mm DPNs and was my first attempt knitting in the round.

I also have another one for a friend on the needles. No WIP photos (my camera is travelling abroad without me), but it is in LanaGrossa 'Quattro Print' (a merino/acrylic blend).

I predict many more Nauties getting made on my end, and I love seeing everyone elses interpretations!
