When my younger brothers were little one of their "treats" was to eat what ever our Dad left in his lunch box. On the odd day that he ate it all they would create a fuss.
Mum wised up and started making 2 extra sandwiches for them to have.
Roll on far too many years and I am now having to put extra food into Ben,s dish so that Herbie can finish it off. I realised that he would leave a little of his and then sit beside Ben waiting to scavenge the scraps.
Ben is set in his eating habits and I know exactly how much to give him so now there is always a little left for Herbie.
Small children are much the same no matter race, creed or number of legs.
The second cowl is now off the needles and a third variation is in progress. These are a quick knit and by changing the stitch pattern I hope to stave off boredom until I have knit up several more odd balls of yarn. They take around 50 - 60 grams depending on the thickness of yarn. The current pair are in Drops Karisma on 5mm needles with a 96 stitch count.
