Who'd Have Thought?

One Too Many Squares
Here are all the pieces, plus one extra as I discovered, of another toy made of knitted squares. The book Knit a Square & Make a Toy includes directions for 24 different projects that are pretty doable for new knitters. (I've been teaching knitting once a week at the UW hospital to women in the antepartum unit, some of whom have been there for weeks. Just yesterday, for a change, I helped a young lady learn to cross stitch, and she was so happy to have something to help pass the days.)
Loppy Lamb
After a bit of sewing, a little embroidery, and with the help of a couple of bows, I finished Loppy the Lamb, so-named because her ears are a bit lopsided. And once again I learned that I can't count: this time I came up with an extra leg-square. Oh well, she's done, and that should be enough samples at least for a while!

Hi Judy, thanks for visiting. Personally, I find French Knots relaxing. Don't let the number hold you back. LOL.

Love your little lamb. Way too cute!

Hi Judy,
thanks so lot for your nice comments on my blog and your friendly visits. This little lamb looks very beautiful, is it for the little lady with the new cap on your blog?
Easter is coming...
Many greetings an a wonderful weekend to you Gabriele
The little "tea-for-two-party" was very good, the old woman is such a wonderful lady, and it was an interested afternoon together.

Hi Judy
I find it beautifully that you have such a task, because in such a way the manual work into the coming generation transferred... Your lamb became mad - error free!
Take care Barbara
