Linny,

I emailed you today for the pattern. I haven't ever tried a toy before.... haven't knitted much actually, but would like to try if it isn't too late.

Thanks!

Keep up the goodwork

Thanks Linda
Working mine on some Dpns with point protectors on one end *winks*
They are much easier then trying to deal with long ends!

Well done he looks fantastic, have you added him to the gallery yet. I think yours will be the first. How long did it take you to complete him , I think you have made him in no time at all,very quick.
Did you have any problems with the pattern?
Your knitting is very neat are you pleased with him.
I wonder how everybodyelse is doing?

Thankyou for making him I think he is lovely

X Linda

I'm having the same issue

Don't they know that knitting should take priority over all else? hehehe!

I've just emailed for the pattern, am going to go down to my storage and see what yarns I have available!

Linda, you mentioned this only uses about 100g? Is that right?

Thanks!

Not too long to work...three days I think? I started mid week and worked til Saturday. The longest part of the whole thing was sewing him up. The pieces work up super fast cause they are so small.

I think next time I will work him in something fluffier. I have some red heart plush I may try....

I need to do a project in between him and starting a new one...(Actually I have about 3 projects waiting to be finished with non knitting actions - sewing in lining, sewing in elastic etc...)

I will post when I finish a new one...

PS Linnypin...anyway we will be able to link the pattern in Ravelry?

I got the pattern!

I can't believe how many little pieces there are! I hope it's not too fiddly..... and I notice the 'make up' instructions states 'felted' pieces.... ummmmm, I've never felted before (or can you purchase felted pieces?)
