The granddaughters asked me to knit (crochet) them these animals...
and I put them off as long as I could.
I now know why!
The pattern writer is from the Netherlands and most of the time
her instructions made no sense to this English crocheting grandma.
I think I learned my lesson.
NO more foreign patterns for me!
I'm sure the girl's will love them...
(for a day or two.)
So for the next few days...
I will stick with what I know best.
