just because

Because my Mom spends part of the year in Florida, and because she's my Mom, and because I couldn't resist...

I'm knitting my Mom a flamingo for Christmas. Most people have gnomes from me in their house, but for Florida, I think my Mom needs a flamingo.

I knit this much last night, the legs this morning, and I just have the wings and tail left. I'll show the completed bird soon.

And yes, I laugh when I knit this. I mean, c'mon! It's a FLAMINGO!

I love making odd things like that, custom picked for the receiver! Adorable!! What pattern is it? I find a lot of toy/stuffed item patterns are not well written, or just annoying to make. But so worth it in the end!

So cute! I am still afraid of handknit toys. I haven't ventured into knitting them yet.
