Mission Objective complete.
Final package dropped off in Liverpool.
Engel had far too much fun with the insinuations of this ‘business’ and ‘package’. On Friday I had, in fact, dropped off the last of my largest commission undertaken. A friend is getting married soon and, instead of flowers, she wanted a knitted bear and liger on each table, each toy being about a foot long. For eight tables.
I’ll admit I was a tiny bit tired of this by the eight pair!
But, none the less, here are the little guys:
The bear is based on ‘Brown Bear’ by Sally Muir and Joanna Osborne from ‘Knit your own zoo’
And the Liger is based on ‘Tabby Cat Prowling’ by Sally Muir and Joanna Osborne from ‘Best in show: Knit your own cat’
As an amusing aside, I originally decided to knit the bears out of a fuzzy wool, and using the pattern ‘Grizzly Bear’ by Kath Dalmeny from ‘Knitted World of Toys’
Lets just say fuzzy wool isn’t so good at holding its shape. At all.
I did get a cute guinea pig though!
Not much else to say other than a pleasant Easter was had by all. Oh, and lastly, 2 balls of wool this week.
Wool Count down:
Starting total (28Feb15) – 747 balls
