One Pig, Two Pig…

Standard

One day recently, I was sitting at my over abundant stash of really, really acrylic-y, disgusting yarns thinking, “What on Earth am I going to do with all this! There isn’t enough to make any hats or decorations(not that I need any more) and there’s too much to make any small toys(not that I need any more of those either plus, anything that would take that much is always doomed to be started but never finished {see my Granny Square Blanket started July 2010}) So I went surfing(web not ocean since it is winter and a bit too cold for my taste) on Ravelry and finally found the wonderful Chichester The Pig Pattern By Helen Apocalypse! Her Blog which she posted it too read exactly what I was looking for;

Chichester the Pig was born when someone asked me for 26 knitted pigs for an event and I was forced to come up with a pattern that I could knit 26 times without it making me crazy.”

Perfection! I printed it out and knit up oh…2…or 3…or…cough, cough, 7, cough, cough. But in my defense one did escape my picture taking frenzy 😉 Here they are:

From left to right: Betty, Letty, Netty, and half a Jetty...

 

...Half a Netty, Jetty, Petty and Earl

 

 

 

 

 

The only piggy missing from this lovely family portrait is Jim-Bob III. He was light blue and the same size as Jetty!
