Tintin has a face!

The front is done, and all the features have been filled in:

I’d never noticed before, but my, Tintin has some oddly placed eyebrows!

Tigger shows what he thinks of a sweater with a DOG on it:

It’s a beautiful, beautiful day outside (hence the outdoor photography, even if it does put half the front in shadow — Mark suggested I take a picture outside, as my only taste of the lovely weather). It’s currently 10C! Amazing. Makes you almost believe that real warmth is possible…

That is one of the best sweaters I’ve ever seen on the web.

Wow, it looks fantastic. The eyebrows are kinda weird now that you mention it.

Wow Aven, it looks great. Much less freaky now that they have eyes. ;)

I love it! I actually squealed out loud when I saw the face come together. Much improved by the eyes!

Who are you making this sweater for again? The person who wears it is going to get some MAJOR comments.

Wow, that looks great! You did an awesome job with this sweater.

wow, looks great. The more difficult part is over, so the other pieces will just fly by.

That came out so well! It’s so much fun to watch your progress on this.

That looks fantastic! I loved Tintin when I was a kid, and your fabulous sweater put a big smile on my face.

hey aven -
just got your comment (lucky I’m here on the computer at robarts!) and I’ll do my best! and good luck to Mark - we need a place to stay when we all go to nova scotia in the fall!

Looks great!

It looks absolutely awesome. Notice how Tigger framing the dog? Maybe he wants the cat treat equivalent. Have you seen Beastly Knits by……someone. (It’s at home and I’m in the office.) She has sweater patterns of various cats, whales, tigers……I’ve always wanted to knit one and seeing Tintin motivates me more.

Fabulous! Wonderful! Ridiculous!

i’m impressed. i walked past beguiling on markham st today and thought of you - there’s this image of tintin reading a book outside (seemed appropriate for mark) - thought you could make a a little series of tintin sweaters in various background colours…

The sweater turned out beautiful, and so is the cat.

The sweater is great, but Tigger looks like my Krusty! I’m always excited to see his spoiled web-cousins.

The sweater looks wonderful!
