Toys were the first thing I learned to knit and find them SO fun. Recently, I took an online course in toy knitting with Susan B. Anderson and since I already had her book Itty Bitty Toys, I immediately had to sign up! I learned to knit a toy completely seamlessly and picked up some other new techniques along way. The first toy knitted was the elephant and cannot wait to start knitting the others. However, for the others I think I'm going to use Spud & Chloe.
