I have escaped from school (we're in the middle of an Ofsted inspection) because I just had to show you this. Julie is having a little giveaway over here and you could win a pattern to make this egg cosy.
Now I am under no illusions whatsoever that this version made by me is anywhere near as wonderful as the real thing, but it's still really rather cute don't you think? Having finished the knitting of her last night, I needed some toy filling, but what do you know, I didn't have any. Needs must when you're desperate, so I sliced open a cushion and used that! It's not right though, far too springy, so when I make the next one (and oh boy will I be making many more of these) I promise to do it properly and buy the proper stuff.
Maybe tonight I'll get on with the blanket - either the mystery one, or the St Dunstan's one, or maybe finish a sock or maybe even cast on another sock.
I wonder if the Ofsted Inspector would mind if I sat and knitted this afternoon and let the children get on and play. After all, that's the way to make them learn better according to last night's Horizon (which Mr Stressy made me turn off because it was so boring - hmm, bet he wouldn't have said that if the programme had been about cars!)
