12th September 2010

Just before we went on holiday I got a lovely e-mail from a lady in America asking if I would make her some toys , now who was I to say no.. I managed to get one big bunny done before we went and since we've got back the needles have been clicking away and I've managed to get the other three done.









They look quite cute altogether don't you think ?

I've also managed to knit a little something else too , a present for Gabes teacher . There is a story behind this so I'll tell you it before you see the photo.

On his first day we were out in the nursery garden moving some big wooden barrel type plant pots and we found the biggest slug in the world .... well it was the biggest one I've ever seen anyway. It was at least 6" long and about an 1" wide .. HUGE. The teacher joked that it was big enough for her to ride and it was going to become the nursery pet. Now a couple of days before a very dear friend of mine had gave me a present of a knitting pattern for ...........



You guessed it .............. a slug !!!

Lisa I have watched your knitting develop over the years and you really do come up with masterpieces. I am sure the lady in America will be thrilled with the toys - the colours are beautiful and Gabe's teacher will go in fits of laughter when she sees the supurb giant SLUG!!!
