A couple of weeks ago, I have knitted my first soft toy following a pattern from the last Let’s knit issue. It was meant to be for my nephew but my children seemed to disagree and as I found it a bit too big anyway I decided to knit a smaller one…. and as you can see, it has been a while since I have last used my maths brain. I don’t want to bore you with the details of my mistake, nothing to be proud off after all, but the head turned out too small…. which I only really accepted once it was stitched on to the rest of the body. It looks funny and I do prefer the nose for which I have used a few simple stitches with brown yarn rather than knit a nose and stitch it on.
So this one has been the fourth soft toy of my life, and although I do like the rather funny look of them I am still not a fan of the time consuming sewing together and finishing. So I am guessing that those pieces will really stay unique and you can count yourself lucky if you are ever the proud owner of a soft toy made by me 🙂
