and I did manage to get the Fab Fibers gals to take home some of the extra cat toys. I now have just 2 more, which seems a more reasonable number of toadstool rattles to make, don't you think?
I used some sport weight yarn for this one, Serenity for the cap, and some stuff I had in the stash for the gills and stem. I was inspired to try it out when one of the Fab Fibers gals showed up a couple weeks ago knitting one in some earthy colors. I knew I wanted to gift this at a baby shower, so I went for pastels.
