Clanger!

This is the first thing I’ve knitted since I was 10.

Clanger

I looked on facebook one day, and saw my friend had written, “I wonder if Auntie Ce Ce can make a Clanger* for Iggy.”

Oh yes, I replied, of course I can, forgetting that I hate doing knitting. So, I looked on the internet to brush up my skills, and the gloriousness of continental knitting was revealed to me here. I love it! And short row shaping – who invented that? Genius. (This tutorial has a really clear depiction of how short row shaping works.)

And I love the Clanger. I don’t really want to send him off to England to live with my godson. I bet he hasn’t even heard of The Clangers.

Pattern here.

*The Clangers are a family of knitted pink aliens who featured in the eponymous British children’s television programme which debuted in 1969 and was shown throughout the 70s.

    Hi,
    I have just the photo of the Clanger that you knitted in 2009.
    It is just perfect!!
    Would it be at all possible for you to knit one for me? as i have never seen another one as perfect as yours.
    I would be very happy to pay your price and shipping charges. I would also be very happy to pay the full price in advance.
    I would be so very grateful if you could do this.
    Many Thanks,
    Daryl Hopkins.
    P.S. I am a UK Resident.
