Hello everyone! :waving:
UPDATE: Since our July 2008 Toy Knit-Along was such a success, we've decided to keep it going indefinitely! So if you want to join us in making toys with yarn, you are more than welcome! :hug:
I'm SO excited to host my very first monthly KH Knit-Along.
Last year, I was always interested in watching Hildie or Braden post the latest knit-along. I can't believe I'm doing it this time!
Anyway.....back to business.
Our July KAL is [SIZE=4][COLOR=blue]T[COLOR=red]O[/COLOR][COLOR=seagreen]Y[/COLOR][COLOR=purple]S[/COLOR][/COLOR][/SIZE]!
You can knit or crochet any toy of your choice this month.
I'm planning on making one of the animals from the Alan Dart"Noah's Ark" pattern I got with a recent "Simply Knitting" magazine. I'm also interested in the patterns by Jean Greenhowe. And there are many others that appeal to me as well.
I've never knit or crochet a toy before, but I figure that summer is a perfect time to do it. You only need little bits of yarn, and the project shouldn't take too long.
So, look through your patterns, choose a toy to make, and get crackin!
