Every once in a while, I need something small -- for a quick gift or just to keep my hands busy. This time around, it was a last minute gift for my daughter's preschool classmates. I stewed on it for a bit and came up with the perfect idea... Lil' Duckie:
He takes only a few ounces of yarn and I can work one up in a little over 1/2 hour -- plus he's ADORABLE! I plan on making one for each of the kids in my daughter's class and adding a tag that says "Hope your summer is just DUCKY!"
Now, don't you worry -- I've always been the giving type. The pattern is already loaded into Ravelry. And because I love you all so much? He's free!
So go forth and populate the world with little duckies.... you know you want to!
