Every once in a while, we have a knitting emergency in our house.
The first occurred around Christmas when the older Princess NEEDED a stuffed Bat. She needed this bat like flowers need the sun. At least, that is what she would have you believe. We looked for a bat. We hunted high and low but there were no bats to be found. In the end, I did a quick search on Ravelry, found a pattern and knit the thing myself.
Now she needs a snail. And you know I can't say no. Good thing I didn't throw out that cheap acrylic yarn.
Here are some lovely socks to distract you.
Knit in Twist of Fate yarn made of wool and seacell. The pattern is Cat Bordhi's Fountain Foxgloves.
