Joining Ginny again this week for the Yarn Along.
I finished the frog for Mouse's birthday last night. Mouse wants him to have a hat yet so I will have to figure out how I am doing that. I also started working on a pig for Butterfly. She wanted pink of course. I was using these projects as a way of using up left over yarn, but I did not have pink. I am really trying hard to stick to a budget and craft using stuff I already have, so I decided to look for cheap yarn at Goodwill when I stopped there to drop off some clothes and old toys. I found the coral (we won't tell her it is not pink) yarn for .99 cents. The wrapper is in the photo, it is very old yarn! I am a bit worried about using it and maybe having it break but so far it is working out. The patterns are from the Knitting Amigurumi Animal Friends book by Michele Wilcox. The owl worked out perfectly but the frog had a lot of errors. We shall see about the pig. The patterns are all very easy!!!! I pictured my next two books this time as I finished a book yesterday (4th in the Amelia Peabody series by Elizabeth Peters) and have not started a new on yet. How the Government Got in Your Backyard by Jeff Gillman and Eric Heberlig looked interesting and The Cloud Atlas by Liam Callanan for my book club.
Can't wait to see what you are all working on!
