Mo the draught excluding snake



This is Mo, the recycled draught excluding snake. He's made out of scraps of yarn from my Mum's knitting bag, old clothes I shredded to make the filling, and a couple of buttons from the shredded clothes to make his eyes.

He looks a bit dated and like something your grandma could have made, but I'm quite pleased for a first non-scarf project. He was really just an exercise in increasing and decreasing, and I even put in a bit of knitting on three needles to make his tongue (which looks ridiculous!)

I've always wanted to knit toys, and the thought behind Mo was that the kids can play with him but he'll also be useful for when they're not here.

Next, a family of penguins...

It doesn't look dated.. it looks ecclectic which is really trendy right now. Good job!!
