Success and Failure

It seems to be a time for mixed results. Irish Girlie Knits came out with a great cowl pattern, Summer Wind, and that one is an unqualified success. Easy to make yet so fun, it's addictive. And I loved working with Tosh Sock, lovely drape for a cowl.

Pattern: Summer Wind
Yarn: Tosh Sock, color: Kale
Needles: US #5/3.75mm
Comments: This is the small size, but my gauge was slightly larger because I was using bamboo needles. Such a fun knit! I highly recommend it.

I won't give you the info on the following creation, because, seriously... have you ever seen a less llama-like object? I don't think I'll ever finish this one. There's a reason all these amigurumi are crocheted.

If you try to knit a llama, you might end up with the llamaduck. Not good.

Lovely cowl. I'm going to look up that pattern.

Aw, we all have to have some not-quite projects, yes? Have you seen the video Llama Llama Duck?? Well, your ducky llama could be something wonderful. You never know!

Knit some horns and wings for that llamaducky, and turn it into a devil ducky! ;-)

Thanks. Now I can't stop singing the Llama song.

Here's a llama, there's a llama, and another little llama. Fuzzy llama, funny llama, llama, llama, DUCK!
