Wip Weds: Soper Creek Yarn Challenge Unveiling!

Wednesday is the hand in day, voting has started in earnest.  So if you can go to Soper creek Yarns  (or facebook) and vote! Winner will be chosen by votes from the public.

Well after much deliberation, my guys selected “Pookies” for my Yarn Challenge Pattern. They each wanted one. These where great fun to make! Highly recommend this pattern. My only alteration to this pattern was not to weigh the bottom with beans or something else, just a cardboard disc to make them sit flat after stuffing.

Ok, we all started with this

Number 1: Kitty   Number 2: Bunny  Number 3:  Mouse
