Knit Whit, Twit ……..

Here's the real deal

Here’s the real deal

And other rhyming derivatives.

Do you recall my advising just a few days ago that I can’t really knit?

Well for you delight and delectation here is the living proof!!!!!  Dear one Rachel and I spent the day together yesterday, amongst the many topics of the day was knitting. Among my stash of all things creative was a wee pattern for egg cosy in the form of rabbits.

The pattern seemed so simple we both agreed to give it a go. Generous to a fault I gave R a pair of needles….. Correct size, for her to use when she finds time. This morning I lunged at my wool stash, none quite the right size but hey how much difference can that make? Now needles….. Mmmmm none the right size but a pair only 0.75 too big…. That wont matter…. Off I go, 7 rows in I had 2 more stitches than I had started with but soon rectified the matter losing them in the next row..  HaHa! On a roll now.

Head complete and onto the ears. Loved the ears ALL knit no purl/pearl/pirl it only took 2 hours to knit. UhHa not bad.  I feel you nod approvingly, now to construct and put face on.

So why does mine look like an owl/funky bat????

Either way I am pretty pleased with my first effort in probably 20+ years. Wrong wool, wrong needles, wrong face BUT ITS PINK!

Do hope you get as much of a laugh as HH, R and I did, not promising to stick to what I know best as I can’t possibly let the egg cozy get the better of me…… Next a cable knit woolie, what do you think.

Owl, Bat or Wabbit .... For you delight and delectation
