Finally done. Slightly annoyed, not the patterns fault my own. My knitting today is suffering from my distraction. So many stupid errors, so many rounds redone. I’m aching today and I really need to stick to simple patterns on days like today. Unfortunately my son needed the gift for tonight so I carried on. Now I can relax and return the hat I am knitting.
I’ve gone Topsy-Turvy crazy. I love these toys. I found the book hidden in the back of a yarn shop, on the bottom shelf pushed to the back. Obviously, after such hard work just to find it, it was meant for me. I realize I no longer have babies or toddlers, but I do get visitors and I am determined to have a basket of these toys sitting by my fireplace. Topsy-Turvy Inside-Out Knit Toys is amazing. The detail that Susan B. Anderson goes into is awesome. Her directions are specific and in the end they are so creatively simple I wish I had thought of them myself. I love her designs and she always goes the extra mile to make things perfect. These were so much fun to make. For now, I have a snowman/Christmas Tree, pigs-in-a-blanket, penguin/egg (or snowball, which everyone prefers to say) and on the needles the hen/fox. I love, love, love these!
