After a short time of novice knitting I became very inspired by the work of Donna Wilson and her wacky creations, I was very eager to give ‘it ago myself and with the only swatch I had made and bits n’ bobs from around the house this is what I ended up with. I was quite pleased with my outcome for my first time indulging in craft although it was very rough around the edges. The holes are too big for a suitable stuffed toy, my stitching is unbearably messy and my choice of materials are not particularly aesthetically pleasing.
My next step will be to experiment with different yarns, wools, materials, and needles. I will experiment which weights and thickness will work best for my animal creations, I will continue research in books and internet tutorials and will teach myself an array of patterns to further my knowledge in knitting.
