Hello Dear Knitters,
Oh I have so much to share!! I haven't been posting lately and I've missed out on telling you so much that has been going on in the knitting department here. I'm hoping be able to get back to my regular posting now that things are getting better.
As you can see, I've been busy knitting up some of the critters from Itty-Bitty Toys. I've also got a pig on the go, but he's still in pieces right now. These little guys were so much fun to knit!
This is the Hippo. She is done in Lion Brand Cotton which is a worsted weight instead of two strands of sock yarn held together like the pattern called for. She might be a little bigger than the one from the book, but I think it just means there is more to love!
I thought this sheep is so adorable! And by the way, the pattern is now available for free in the Winter 2009 issue of Petite Purls and here on Ravelry. I knit him for my doctor and he got quite a kick out of him. The only thing I did wrong is when inserting the straws into the legs, I should have left them long enough to shove up into the body for more stability. I cut mine to be a little shorter than the legs, so he doesn't stand up very well. But that's okay because he looks just as cute sitting down.
My little green frog isn't quite done yet, he still needs a heart, which I have yet to knit, since he is the "love frog" but more on that later...
Well, I've got more to share with you, but it will have to keep till tomorrow! I hope you are all having a lovely week!
Take care and keep knitting!
