Things You Can Cut

Sort of a quasi-knitting theme going on today. Some of you reading might know that it's not all just plastic bag knitting and yarn pornos I create--back in the day, (and once in a while when the mood strikes right) I also did linoleum cuts. Actually only one of you reading I believe knows that.

For CASP (Cheap Ass Secret Pal--a sort of "Secret Santa" for knitters that doesn't involve spending lots of money on someone and isn't contained to the holiday season) this round, I gifted my SP, Jaime, a set of knitting-themed linoleum cut cards. Now that she's received them and I can brag, er, I mean display them:

You basically cut the image out of a block of linoleum. Pretty simple really. I like these ones in particular for their rustic look. I'm not sure about the stylized window in the background, but I was running out of time to make and send them.

And what else can you cut? Hair of course!

El Chunkito still has a smile on his face afterwards, I guess that's a good thing huh? I think I'll stick to knitting!

P.S. Thanks Tactless for the good tips with the shears. Of course I read your comment after I cut his hair! But there will be a next time!

The cards look really great. Where does one purchase a block of linoleum? Chunky's hair looks pretty good too. Good thing or your next project would be a hat.

Great linoleum cut!

Chunky is such a handsome young man! Don't they look about 10 years older after a hair cut?

my verification word is
bbbap.
Wasn't that an 80's song?

Those cards are awesome! I pictured you ripping up pieces of your floor but this is so much cooler.

And what a cutey pie Chunky is!

I'd like to see a pic of the actual chunk of linoleum too. It looks really cool!

Awww...look at the cutie pie and his new hair cut!

Great lineoleum cut...not that I understand why anyone would take lineoleum and cut it, but that's ok. :)
