Earlier this year when I saw this video for Susan B Anderson's new book Topsy Turvy Inside Out Knit Toys I knew I would get it the moment it came out!
Before the book even got here I was lucky enough to meet Susan at Vogue Knitting Live in Seattle and she gave me a "special" pattern to make a reversible Turtle/Egg! So this weekend while chatting away between classes at the Yarn Cupboard Retreat I whipped one up for my 3 year old friend who I've been missing spending time with!
Seriously, how freaking cute, right? I'm a bit addicted! The only mod I made to the pattern was to use my circular cast on for the start of the egg and turtle... you all know that when I am starting in the round with only a few stitches that this is my cast on of choice! It is so FUN to just follow a well-written pattern from start to finish and end up with an adorable project to gift! Next on my knitting wish list is the Egg to Penguin!
Susan will be handing out cards with this pattern at her next few events... you can learn more about those, and the book, on her blog; which is one of my favorites!
