surprise

Finding myself with a bit of extra time (because of a couple cancelled orders) I decided to start working on a new toy pattern! I began with the unicorn pattern, but have put it aside for the moment because I decided to try knitting it in the round, and I haven't the right size needles. So there is another new toy in the works! Similar to my other small toys, but a new animal. I have the first proto-type nearly done, but I might make a second with some small modifications.

Once they're both ready, I'll post pictures here, and we'll have a little contest! You get to vote on which version you prefer, and suggest names for the new toys. The version with the highest vote will be the one I write up. The names will all be put in a hat, and the winner will get the surprise I made plus a copy of the new pattern. Sound good?

Sounds great! I must made two Bunnies with hoddies, and I love them! I wish more toys would be knit in the round though. I suck at sewing things together. Soon there will be a big Teddy Bear as well! :o)
