Knitted Toilet Roll Cover - Perky the Pig

Oink Oink!

Well the festive season has come to an end and although I was a little sad to pack away my decorations I was happy to have a bit more time for my favourite pastime - knitting. I have neglected my needles for some time now, as making and creating presents, decorations and the all important feast left little time for much else. I was spoilt with gifts myself, as happily in my family it's not all about the kids, and no present was more gratefully received than from my friend Louise who bought me a book on knitted toilet roll covers! My passion for knitting causes much amusement to many of my friends and Louise is no exception, I know however that she loves a bit of kitsch chic and therefore would appreciate being the recipient of my first novelty cover. I chose the pig mainly because I had a ball of pink wool going spare, but the book has so many patterns that this is only the beginning and there will be many more to come so watch out!

Happy New Year!
