Okay, so I said I wasn’t much of a knitter! And please believe me, it’s true, but after knitting so many Trauma Teddies (yes…by now I can knit them without a pattern) I just had to try out this little number.
So, there I was in Lincraft buying some more wool to knit some more Trauma Teddies for the Red Cross to distribute to the ambulance service and hospitals and they had those free patterns that you tear off – like How To Make A Tassle and How To Make A Pom Pom and in this case – How To Make A Fairy Floss Teddy.
Well, I could not wait to get myself home – along with my 50g ball of Fairy floss yarn and 5mm knitting needles to see what a new teddy would look like.
“Fairy Floss” teddy seems quite at home with Rumble Ted (head teddy in this house) who is now over 60 years of age and belongs to Mr. E.N.L. and my favourite trauma teddy (which somehow never gets in the bag every time I have to send them off to Julie at Tight Knit World who co-ordinates our teddy knitting).
