I love knitting but it's a time consuming hobby and I rarely have the patience to finish full sized sweaters, blankets, or other big items. That's just one of the reasons why I love making knitted stuffies. They are super cute, quick to make and a wonderful way to use up yarn stash.
I made these friendly twins recently, Gertrude and Hank. They crack me up. I used a pattern from the book, The Knitted Odd Bunch with a few minor tweaks.
I used silk/bamboo yarn and stuffed them lightly so they are cute and floppy. Finished size is aprox 16" tall.
