“The exams for this year” are finished, but I have been sort of trapped in a working-hard me and couldn’t get out of it immediately after the exams. We are going to another city to visit a friend tomorrow. I hope this would help. 😛
(Continue after the trip)
This bone was knitted a week ago. A friend (Mars, in case you know him) asked me for a handmade pig or a “Schweinshaxe“. I chose schweinshaxe, which is no wonder an exiting challenge for a softie maker. However, after I made my promise, I became too busy to actually carry something out. The only thing I can make him before Xmas is this little bone. My explanation is that the bone is the only thing that would remain from the meal. 😛 Although it is different from my plan, I’m still quite happy with the twisted little thing. Mars seems OK with it also. Having put the bone on his key ring with his little hippo, he is just a little worried most people would recognize the hippo as a dog. 😀
As for the bone, it’s my first experiment on knitted stuffed toy. The pattern is by Alan Dart (as a part of “Cave Folk“), very simple, and it turns out great. Consequently, I am more and more interested in Alan Dart’s designs. He rocks! Here is one thing newly added to my wish list: Alan Dart’s Shaun the Sheep mobile from Simple Knitting No 35.
