This is a knitted snuggle - a great way to use up all that wool.
Now I am not the worlds best knitter - I am slowly learning. I was taught to knit when I was little but my Mum despaired that I could not grasp holding the needles properly (still cant) and well she was not always the best teacher (tending to get grumpy and take over). But the basics casting on/off, knit, purl, decrease and now increase I can do.
This took me a few years of knitting to create - one because I am a slow knitter and two because I was doing lots of things in-between.
It is the perfect size for one side of a double bed - and before you ask that was on purpose. I completed it as a Christmas present for Mr Mouse a few years ago (Mr Mouse gets colder than me, hence the size. He needed an extra blanket just on his side on the bed).
|Its also a hit with Ferd|
And like all my snuggles it is backed with fleece.
My other snuggle posts can be found here and here. If you would like me to make you a snuggle leave a comment or email me firstname.lastname@example.org or contact me via Etsy or Twitter (see side menu for link).
I can make them from your own special material (eg special but worn out jammies, kid clothes etc) or I can raid my stash and if you are happy to wait a little while I will even knit you one (I am getting quicker at knitting) :)
