Oink

Posted on: 30 December, 11

When I learned to knit socks, I initially tried DPNs and promptly abandoned them in favor of circular needles.  The pig was too small for circular needles.  This little oinker
Was cute enough to convince me to try DPNs again.  I love the pig, but I still don't love DPNs, especially metal ones.  I am quickly learning that bamboo needles are my favorite. 

The pattern is available for free at Spud and Chloe. The directions were clear enough for me to easily understand given my novice knitter standing. 

The is Red Heart acrylic.  I know, I know….  sigh.  It is what I had on hand.  That's what happens when i decide to start a project in the middle of the night.  Between the Red Heart and the metal needles, the only thing that saved this project is the incredible cuteness of the little pig. 

I couldn't resist adding a little bow on his tail.  I also added a ribbon so the pig could be a Christmas tree ornament for a friend.
