My Giant knitted donkey is finished
« on: September 13, 2013, 11:14:09 PM »
...and Maisie LOVES him.  I'll get a picture of her with him tomorrow.

He is 15" from crown to tail and he took about 5-6 weeks to knit.

That is great!  As a knitter myself, I know what an accomplishment that is.

I don't know how you find the time with all of the other things that you do.  You are Wonder Woman!

I knit a lot at night which leads to me staying up WAY too late.  ;D

No, not right now.  I've thought about opening one.

He is so cute! Great job! I never could get the hang of knitting. My granny tried to teach me to crochet, couldn't do that either, lol.
