Barney the slug

Well, after watching a fabulous episode of Glee (I love that programme!!!) I sat down and just started knitting.  I didn’t find a pattern that completely fitted my requirements, I wanted a slug a little bit bigger than the free patterns below. 

I found some wool that was given to me a couple of years back by my Nanny – and some embroidery cotton, some double ended needles, and away I went!  I wish I could put the patten here, it was very simple to do, but I didn’t write it down.  Maybe I’ll make another one and let you all know how it was done – it only took me just over an hour to make, and I think he’d make a happy addition to any plant pot!

Here is the little chap… Barney the slug…

He is sat on my bosses sunflower pot, he’s a big fan of Australia hence the flag… this is slug sabotage knitting styleee! Don’t you think he’s cute!

    Barney is just too cute. Bet he makes those sunflowers grow like crazy.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

    Teehee! What a cute lil’ sluggie! If I put some in my tomatoes, maybe the other slugs will think it’s too crowded there? Just hoping…
