This is the newest Koby, freshly created for the Blogiversary/ Kickstarter prize… the one where the winner got to choose whatever pattern from the new book, Loom Knitting for Little People, for me to make especially for them!
Catharine Plummer was our winner drawn for this particular prize and she chose to have me loom up a Koby of her very own!
This is the Koby I had been working on when I reviewed the Martha Stewart Loom Kit and if you remember, I had to do a little bit of adjusting to get the peg numbers to match as close as I could to the original written pattern. It turned out that his head, body and all four feet were made with 2 additional pegs than the previous Koby. I thought this wouldn’t make too much of a difference between the two, but when I placed the Koby made from the MS Loom next to the original Koby, the difference was clearly seen…
Then, a bit later my youngest daughter, Megan, saw the new kitty-brothers together and said, “His name should be Brutus, not Koby!” hahaha! You don’t think these two girls are related or anything, right? Lol!
But oh, isn’t he so handsome?
…and he has such a spritely tail! This is the result of that little bit of trouble I had in decreasing the tail to its nicely pointed tip, while using the square setting of the MS Loom. The circle setting with the special “bird’s eye” adjustment would have been much more suitable for this particular segment. But, as Brutus/Koby demonstrates, he can be completely and very easily created using the new MS kit.
This Koby even has a special loomy tag which has his care instructions on the back. You know… when to feed him, how often he needs cat naps, the fact that he needs regular access to video chat to be able to say “hi” to his other Koby brother, clear over there in Washington State, lol.
If you haven’t noticed, I have adjusted my progress bar (in the right hand sidebar) to reflect the fact that the “Koby Project” is all done! Yippee! At least one thing is marked off and all colored in. Now I need to focus on the rest of the to-do’s, lol.
I hope you’re all gearing up for a fantabulous Thanksgiving holiday! We are thawing our turkey-bird as I type and have been shopping and baking and cleaning, to be ready for the oh-so-sweet & delish festivities. May all your family be well, happy and safe throughout this week! :)
