Toy KAL (Knit or Crochet)
Hello everyone!

UPDATE: Since our July 2008 Toy Knit-Along was such a success, we've decided to keep it going indefinitely! So if you want to join us in making toys with yarn, you are more than welcome!

I'm SO excited to host my very first monthly KH Knit-Along.


Last year, I was always interested in watching Hildie or Braden post the latest knit-along. I can't believe I'm doing it this time!


Anyway.....back to business.

Our July KAL is TOYS!

You can knit or crochet any toy of your choice this month.

I'm planning on making one of the animals from the Alan Dart "Noah's Ark" pattern I got with a recent "Simply Knitting" magazine. I'm also interested in the patterns by Jean Greenhowe. And there are many others that appeal to me as well.

I've never knit or crochet a toy before, but I figure that summer is a perfect time to do it. You only need little bits of yarn, and the project shouldn't take too long.

So, look through your patterns, choose a toy to make, and get crackin!

If you've never noticed the free patterns available on the internet, get started here:

I will be making a toy. not sure which one yet. I do have the Noar Ark pull out from that magazine. I also love that Bobbi bear, very cute.
Have found a free pattern for a teddy that looks like Mr Bean's which my son think is so funny. to many choices
