This little piggy...

...went to my Mum's house for Mother's day, isn't he just adorable? My Mum is a huge pig fan - she hopes to one day own a house in the country where she will keep several dogs, cats, a donkey and of course a couple of her favourite pets - pigs.

Last year I made her this little pig so to continue the tradition I decided to try out the fantastic 'Pass the pigs' pattern on the romansock blog. The pattern was of the usual romansock high standard (I would highly recommend all the patterns by Wibit as she writes them very clearly with lots of beautifully taken photos to illustrate) and turned really well. I love his little snout and sticky out legs :-)

Before my Mum could get her present though this little monster took a shine to him and decided to charge round the house with him clutched firmly in his fist. Thankfully he survived his time being pulled about, chewed and otherwise loved and was given to my Mum at the weekend looking almost as good as new.

Now I'm off to make another to keep the monster happy :-)
