Here's Punky's first photo! ! ! !
Knit with my very own hand-dyed yarn.
Punky's body is acid dyed,
beak and claws Kool-ade dyed,
legs Wilton's Cake Icing dyed.
Top knot is a combo of knitted I-cord and gift ribbon and eyes are buttons.
note to self: Next knitted toy - NO CLAWS ! ! ! !
Punky's little buddie is a Bunny Nugget.
This week I've been knitting Punky

This is a fun, fun knit.
Designed by Wendy D Johnson
She's made provisions in the pattern for this to be knit by weight rather than yardage.
I know I must use 500 yards for this Challenge.
I'm using two separate colors
at approx 116 and 119 grams each
and 360 yds each.
Doing the math so that my project doesn't use all seven hundred twenty yards
but rather a bit more than the 500 yd requirement.
this shawl takes 25% of the 500+ yds for the increase side,
50% of the 500+ for the body and the remaining 25% for the decrease side.
I've knit almost 75% right now.
I told you it's fun! I ♥ it.
