This month's Sharing our Gifts project is a lot of fun- we are making stockings and toys for needy children in Virginia. Toys are one of my favorite things to make so I jumped at the excuse to try a few new patterns. These googley eyed toys by cheezombie are addicting! I used size 3 needles and scraps of Super Wool for everything except the eyes which are done in mystery scraps of white and black that I found in my stash. They were so much fun to make! And quick and easy, too. The sheep was a bit fiddly with all its parts- the slug was the easiest and seems to have the most personality, somehow. I have just packed them up and now they are off to Virginia!
