Funniest knitting experience...


I had the funniest knitting experience the other day. So, some of you might remember the toy stuffed pig I made for my DGD. It started out being a free pattern called Bitsy Bear. When I had finished the body and sewed her all together, she had a personality crisis and decided to be a pig. I dressed her in the dress and panties the pattern included, had someone crochet her a curly tail, put hair, eyes and eyelashes on her and called her "Bitsy Pig".

The other day I opened up my Ravelry and there was a message from someone I did not know. I opened the message anyways and guess what I found???

The message was from the creator of the Bitsy Bear pattern, telling me how much she liked what I had done with her pattern and that she had wanted to create different animal patterns besides the bear but had never gotten around to it.

I am an honest person. I sent her back a message and told her the truth! It was an ACCIDENT that "Bitsy Bear" turned into "Bitsy Pig". I also explained why we had to change the doll's name to "Little Miss Piggy". Three year olds can NOT say BITSY properly and I think you all know what my darling DGD was calling that poor piggie doll.

I've been laughing about the message I received for a couple of days now, and decided I should share it with all my KH friends so they could have a laugh as well!
