A new knitting book

On our recent trip for Emeline, I left Emeline with Nanny while Elsie and I went off and had a little girl time.  I took Elsie to Spotlight and this is the book she chose.  I must admit I have never knitted animals before and of all the things she could have chosen she chose this, she just had to have it.  So it the bag it went, along with a ball of pink and purple wool (Elsie's favourite colours). 

This is what I have managed so far, I think it is supposed to be a tadpole, Elsie thinks it is a ghost, she is into ghost's at the moment.  Anyway, it is sort of cute, but it is tiny it only measures about 5cm high and if you include the tail about 8cm long.  The instructions were easy to follow, and are great if you are a beginner knitter, I think it would also be a good book for a child to learn to knit with, as the projects knit up quick.  It took me about an hour, but I am a very slow knitter.

Have a great day
