Automaton of a Knitting Girl

I did this sketch of a girl knitting her hair and making a little friend. She has become the inspiration some knitting automata.
When the crank is wound the needles are designed to slide as the arms rise up and lower. It was quite effective as a homage to the art of knitting. Sadly adding the knitted friend stops the needles sliding so she just raises and lowers the friend.

The next girl knitting a moth

And one just knitting with her wool all in a tangle.

Fantastic, can now leave comments. Knitting, moths and crows...perfect subject matter as far as I am concerned! XX
