Welcome to my first Throwback Thursday post 🙂 I have a ridiculous amount of old photos of past projects that I want to share, so I am starting with one of my favourites, my Knitted Sack Boy.
I don’t even know if people play Little Big Planet anymore, but back in 2009 we did and a friend of mine introduced me to the game. It was so popular the absolutely awesome Alan Dart designed a Sack Boy for all of us to knit our own, pattern here. I have knitted a lot of toys since this Sack Boy, but he has a special place in my heart.
Back in 2009, I had a terrible little camera and didn’t know how to make my knits as good as I do now, but it is still nice to look at the old photos. Just look at the old phone appearing in one of the photos below!
I loved making the wee fella, he was a bit floppy, so I ended up putting a short needle in his back so he had a spine to keep him sitting up.
He was a cutie to make and was one of the first knits that I had to sew up and sew a zip into, which I feel I did very well so early on in my knitting journey. I had learnt to knit just two years before and had made fairly simple things before this one.
