I've been wanting to make a toy for Lionshead for awhile. Now, I am a terrible knitter, but was in a determined mood yesterday and decided to knit her something. I was going for a mouse, but I couldn't understand any of the patterns I found online, so instead I decided on a 'wonton' that I found on knitty.com. You basically knit a square and then sew it into a triangle, stuff it, sew it shut, and tie the corners together.
Well. It took me an hour just to figure out how to cast on, and longer to get all 30 stitches on properly. Then even longer to figure out how to purl. But I finally got the hang of it and less than 24 hours later, Lionshead is very happily attacking her little blue wonton. Hopefully I'll manage to keep improving my knitting.
