A great thing about crafting is you can make ugly little Franken-creatures that no-one else will love, but you do because you made them. I think this is true of little Robbie Robin that I made this week.
He came as a free kit with Let's Knit magazine, and I made him in about two evening sittings. I'm not sure if it's just when I sew my knitting together it seems to go downhill, or if the knitting is a bit mental to begin with, but Robbie maybe looks a little more squint than he's meant too.
But, he does look like a Robin. And his mental looking legs (I'm sure I knitted one longer than the other) look fine when he's sitting, which is what he will be doing this Christmas period.
I do love all my little created children. And hey, at least I had my first double pointed needles experience when I was knitting Robbie's legs. Hoping to progress to socks or something soon. That would be awesome.
