I was up until 2 am sewing on his arms and woke up early saturday morning to give him a face and ears before I left for the shower that he was a gift for…whew! I was loosely following a pattern in Last-Minute Knitted Gifts. I was having a hard time wrapping my brain around the use of the circular needles to knit the body from the legs up (or I was too engrossed in “The People VS. Larry Flint”). Either way, I went to bed a bit defeated and when I woke up I put on some coffee and picked up my sticks and knew exactly what to do. I had decided that DPNs made more sense to me…and finished in no time. I used Berroco Plush instead of the yarn called for…it is so soft. Next time I will not increase as many stitches for head IT WAS HUGE!
