Does anyone else have trouble making up knitted animals. In the last few years I have knitted loads, mostly from Knit Your Own Zoo by Muir and Osborne. They are easy enough as the legs are usually in one with the body. Elephants, bears, crocodiles, armadillos, pandas, polar bears etc.
I have just finished a Llama from knitted farm animals by Sarah Keen. About three days to knit up but ages to sew up as I kept putting it off. It's attaching the arms and legs and head so that the poor animal does not look disjointed not that anyone will notice. That take ages.
Every time I do one I resolve never to do another, but
I know I will!!
Another lovely book is Woodland animals by Susie John
full of frogs, snails, badger and a hedgehog which nearly ended in the bin as I thought I had mastered double pointed needles but when it came to sewing up the poor thing looked as if it had been run over.
Just wondered if anyone else found the same!
