2010 - FO No 14
Yarn: Bendigo Woollen Mills Melody - light blue, lime and beige
Started: 14th June 2010 and finished 16th June 2010
Made for: Twin A due in October
I have had this pattern in my pattern folder for quite some time now and after seeing so many cute editions around ravelry knew this would be a perfect gift for an expected nephew. The Melody yarn knits up beautifully on 3mm needles and my hands didnt feel very sore at all after knitting it. I do have to say the hardest part to knit was the arms as it was a bit difficult to try doing rounds on 4 tiny needles with a big head in the way. My ears seem to be finished a bit funny too, I think I should have casted them off and sewed them somehow instead of grafting them like that. Hopefully when I knit the second one up I might be able to tweek it a little for the ears and it will turn out much nicer. I added the little scarf as I couldnt resist rugging him up for winter. I cast on 8 sts and just knit until it was the length required and then put a little stitch to keep the scarf from coming off. The Melody yarn is quite nice and now I am trying to decide what colors to use for the next one. Isabelle has put in a request for a girl version too but she will have to wait for a little bit. Her birthday is in August so if I can sneakily knit one up for her whilst she is at school I am sure she will love it as a great surprise! Okay off to knit some more ..... hope you all have a wonderful day and it isnt to chilly where you are!
