Few and far between
Now it is my turn to defend my thesis in a few months, so between writing a dissertation, working on papers, and figuring out what I will do after graduation, I will have less time to maintain my blog. I will try to post when I can (or when I need some productive procrastination). So if my posts become few and far between, I am sorry.
That being said, I would like to share a baby toy I made from some leftover baby blanket yarn a few years ago.
A cuddly butterfly baby toy
I made this snuggly baby blanket toy a few years ago out of some leftover baby blanket yarn. I knit an X pattern (top picture) and then folded a cylinder into the center of the work for the butterfly's body. I used some fiberfill to stuff the body. Then I sewed the seam to complete the butterfly's body. To complete, I tied a piece of yarn around the neck. I had not started documenting my patterns when I made this, but if I make another, I will write down the pattern and post it here.
