Revist a past FOo

Bring the fortune and life of a past finished project up to the present. Document the current state and use of an object you have knitted or crocheted, whether it is the hat your sister wears to school almost every day, or a pair of socks you wore until they were full of hole. Or maybe that jumper that your did just didn’t like that much…

Meet Patrick, the Penguin.


I made Patrick for Dan way back in 2005. I think that the pattern was from The World of Knitted Toys - I think. When we went to Hawaii on our honeymoon, there were penguins at the resort! The keepers told us about how the penguins find a mate and stick with that mate. So, for my new mate, I thought it was appropriate to knit a penguin. I started knitting Patrick on the sly - when I first started going to a knitting group at a local starbucks. But, it got to a point where I had to start seaming and I had to do that at home, in front of Dan. So I told him what I was making. He was still surprised! Patrick currently resides in my kitchen and keeps an eye on us.

Awww! He's so cute. I think knitted toys are so cute, but they seem like they would be fiddly and I'm so, well, lazy. :-(
