In November during our Food KAL I offered a prize for the random winner to pick my next toy design. The winner gave me few ideas and then my elbow got injured and I couldn't knit for some time.
Finally after weeks of resting, physical therapy, and such I am back to knitting again.
I kept thinking about the ideas and went back and forth. I made some sketches, and then last weekend I picked up some yarn and started to knit.
The best part of the process is seeing the toy emerge. I usually send pictures to my friends during the work in progress and ask them what they think the toy is. Odie proved to be a challenging one.
The answers were very different.
In any case Odie is a sea otter, and she (or he) needed to have a swim trunk (kind of old fashionable), and of course she (he) needed a snack... a fish.
I will spend next few days typing up the pattern and editing and make it ready to post it on Ravelry for our March KAL.
Join us for the fun.
