This pattern was just too fiddly for me. It was coming out great and would probably have been an amazing rattle, I just did not like working on it. It's taken a trip to the frog pond.
I still needed/wanted to make toys for the under-1 crowd. For the first little one, I crafted a braided ball out of some pastel scraps and put a quiet rattle inside:
Yarn: New Hitsuji-chan, a Japanese DK-ish weight wool, in six colors
Timeframe: December 13 - 15, 2013
Problems: None, aside from the fact that the one black stripe is a bit odd but I went with the colors I had on hand.
