Guitar Playing Dinosaurs Knitting Charts!

Starting in the Fall of 2009, I began thinking about creating custom Christmas Stockings for Keith and myself. I asked Keith if he could have anything he wanted on a stocking, what would that be. His response was dinosaurs playing guitars. I present to you, the charts that I created of dinosaurs playing guitars.

I cannot take all of the credit for these charts. They are based on the artwork of Frank Wu "Dinosaurs Playing Guitar".

Dino with Hat - 38x26

Dino without hat: 35x29

Chart that was used in the stocking: 47x70

  2. I couldn't sleep and so I was just looking around on the Web. After seeing your knitting amino acid charts (all of them) and now your dinosaurs playing guitars -- one complete with Santa hat no less, I got to say, lady, you have some issues! Now maybe that's my insomnia and lack-of-sleep headache speaking, so please forgive me because otherwise you seem like a pretty cool, intelligent person! And thanks for helping me get back to sleep, with the sound knowledge that people like me are not alone....

  3. i am a superhuge fan..i always make my way back here to see what cool things youve made..i just wanted to say that i so appreciate you sharing all your charts..i think i would of handed keith his stocking with an "uh HUH" super cool and funny too..i hope you can help me figure out how to take images and put them on graph paper..simple things like a sun or moon..i did email you give my eye tooth for a square (same color throughout) of a horse..eye have a great so jealous at how well you have this mastered..i suck at math lol

    1. Carolyne,

      I just replied to your email. I don't do a lot of math usually when I design my charts. Frequently I just doodle a design and then share it here on ChemKnits. Otherwise, I look at a project I am making and see how many stitches I have on my "canvas."

      Best of luck!,

  4. Wow! Amazing and fun ideas all ready to go. I can imagine how the kids would love those. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Many guitar teachers would nod in agreement to at least one of the questions above. Many years ago, I was no different. I used to have a difficult time balancing the challenges of trying to help more guitar students, become a more effective guitar teacher, growing my guitar teaching income, and having anytime left at the end of the day. Guitar & ukulele chords

  6. You get apprehensive envisioning a circumstance when your understudies might ask you an inquiry that you don't have a clue about the response to. Fender Player Stratocaster
