Aprils Toys


This is Aprils Toys I knitted,  its a bit late as the lady in the market had them in the first week of April but as you know I have had flu over the last few weeks,  and I have a lot to catch up on.
 First was the blue Huggins the Hippo which is knitting pattern from Fluff and Fuzz,  lovely pattern and easy to do,  I really loved doing this pattern and plan to do more.
Next is my elephant pattern which I have done countless times this time as a sailor and I am showing you the front and the back.

And lastly say Cheese to the mouse,  he was finished at night so the picture was taken by flash,   he is an old pattern from a magazine sorry I cant remember which one, but he worked up quickly and was easy to do.  His scarf which I added is simply 5 stitches four rows knit and four rows stocking stitch.
They are all knitted with wool usually Double knitting apart from the elephants which are 4 ply,.

I am working on the next toys for the lady in the market,   so I will post them in May as May's Toys.

Until we meet again Take care


  1. these little animals are so cute, I could not choose a favourite......I hope you are feeling better noe

  2. I agree with Tilly, Margaret, they are just so sweet...I should think quite abit of work, but worth it....Hope your doing ok hun..xx

  3. Well done they are gorgeous personalised

  4. These are ADORABLE, and as a knitter I can't believe they are 'easy'. They must be done on thin needles! Then there is the stuffing! And the shaping of the hippo! And the sweet elephant with the ears and the hat! I'm glad you have a market for them! And you will make more for May? They are really cute, and I imagine they sell right away!

    You accomplish so much, with tatting, your cards and knitting, even when you are not well! Amazing!

  5. Absolutely adorable! Love the expressive eyes!
    Fox : ))

  6. All three are lovable. They do not look easy to knit. I would not know where to start.

  7. oh they are all so cute Margaret, you are so clever!
