Sunny Side Up

Here we have the egg and bacon for the Fry Up Knitalong, done in Tahki Cotton Classic and Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece. The pattern can be found here. Because I don't like to sew seams if I can avoid it, I've knit the egg in the round. It needed blocking before it looked quite right. It seems to be a common problem, Ann described it well. I'm glad cotton steams into shape so nicely.

My youngest is quite pleased with these, he thinks I've knitted them solely for his amusement. I must admit, they do make for some nice toddler toys. I think that will be their ultimate fate. I just don't see myself wearing a beret topped with breakfast food more than once or twice. It's good to think they will have a practical purpose after all the fun is over.

I am still undecided about the plate color. I'm thinking of using a solid colored yarn for the center and a variegated yarn for the rim. I will make some swatches and see what I like best.

It's lookin' good!! Almost good enough to eat! Ha! Don't you love Cotton Classic, I sure do. It's becoming one of my favorite yarns to knit with.
