Our entry to South Africa five and a half years ago was not as smooth as it could have been, and in the beginning I was very sad and a little lost. Gorgeous Man was busy with work and I was stuck in one room with no radio, tv or transport while we waited to find a house and for our things to arrive.
Gorgeous Man asked me what I needed to make me feel better, and then he borrowed a car and we drove around until we found a store that sold yarn. After that I needed a pattern, so I searched online for ‘free knitting patterns’ and I found this blog. I had never seen a blog before and this was a revelation!
I’ve been reading Emily’s blog ever since. So when I saw that she was the guest designer for the Mystery Knit Along in the Knitted Toys group on Ravelry I had to join in.
Here is the finished toy.
If you missed the Knit A Long. The pattern will be available for sale soon on her blog and you can make one of your very own.
It was a fun knit and really didn’t take that long. For my first multi-part toy I think he’s turned out pretty well.
