more toys for ME ME ME
I have come up with an alternate solution to knitting 12 little crocodiles, instead I have been knitting little things from all the beautiful books I purchased over the last 2 years and never found the time to make up. Plus a small coat for the coffee press to replace the tea towel that has been wrapped around it for several years.
The cat and chameleon are from Knit & Purl Pets by Clair Garland, the octopus is from Hansi Singh's book hansigurumi. I made up the pattern for the cozy, yeah me!
The chameleon took about 75 yards of super bulky yarn called Alaska, the cat took about 90 yards of worsted, the Octopus took 125 yards of a bulky yarn, the coffee cozy took around 115 yards of worsted. These are estimates based on weight by the ball bands, weighed on my kitchen scale pre-stuffing.
