Susan B. Anderson. I have knitted several of Susan's patterns and just love them so I knew right away that I needed to make this one. He turned out so cute. He has a "Pinky" high bounce ball in his tummy so that adds some nice weight to him and some bounce if he gets tossed. I was able to knit him in just a couple of hours while watching a movie with my family. Embroidering the face always intimidates me. I'm not sure why because it always turns out OK but the eyes really give an animal it's character. I guess I don't want to make my sweet little creation look angry or sad. So, as I do quite often, I decided to make polymer clay button eyes.
Tiny Turkey I knitted last November (another Susan B. Anderson pattern).
And I am still knitting away on various squares.
The current count for the Barn Raising squares is 14. And the count for the Log Cabin squares is 13.
I helped to proctor for TCAP testing (Tennessee Comprehensive Achievement Program) this week in my children's school so I had at least six hours of uninterrupted knitting time to work on my log cabin squares. It was great! Add in a softball game yesterday afternoon and soccer practice this evening and I should make some good progress. I'm aiming for 18 log cabin squares and then I'll see if that will be big enough for a lap blanket.
