Ravelympics Day 9: Onto The Next..



I've started my next "Ravelympics" toy!
Working with this soft boucle yarn is a welcome change
from the thin cotton I was using for Francis.

I think that this new little animal will work up awfully fast!



Meanwhile.. my daughter is having a lot of fun with her new turkey friend.



I love the way Francis the Turkey turned out..
but I don't think I would ever want to knit him again.
The pattern was a bit fiddly with lots of pieces, sewing, intarsia and woven in ends.

Was it worth it? Yes! Was it fun? Not exactly. :)

Your little girl is so adorable and it is so cute that she loves the toys you make her. It makes me want to knit things for my son. Congrats on finishing one toy so far!

I love the pics!! I'd love to make more toys, but the fiddley-ness means they always get abandoned and put in a corner. Francis turned out great!!

The toys came out really cute! Your daughter's pink cardi is cute also. Did you knit it?
