Le Cochon Est Finis!
(translation: the pig is done!)



I redid the eyes 'cus both Yannick and Annette (the CLSC nurse who comes by once a week to check how I'm changing Y's bandages) thought the original had psychotic eyes. Apparently an "evil" stuffed toy is not thought of to be the best choice of gift for a 14 year old. Apparently this will cause severe traumas including sleeplessness, delusions and a paranoia of all things porcine. Who knew?

As a last minute addition I was asked to incorporate the recipient's name. I made up a knitted scarf and spent this evening trying to duplicate stitch her name. Apparently I don't do duplicate stitch. I do, however, cross stitch. Voila:

I had to make the scarf tube-like so I could hide the back of the lettering, so this is what I did:
CO 80 sts
Row 1- k
Row 2- k
Row 3- k3, p to last 3 sts, k3
Row 4- k
Repeat rows 3 & 4 twice more
Row 9- k3, p to last 3 sts, k3
Row 10- k3, p to last 3 sts, k3
Row 11- k
Row 12- k
Rows 13-18- repeat rows 3 & 4 three times more
Row 19- k

Rows 9 through 12 gave me a garter border that matched the border of the first 2 rows, then a purl row to fold over, then repeated for the back. Once I finished the lettering I just stitched up the live sts to the CO row and added a fringe.

I hope Trish gives him a good home. Now I can knit! :]
