That then left me with the decision to make about what small thing I could crochet in the day or two it took for the yarn to finish the cardigan to arrive.
First of all I thought about starting this month's Little Box of Crochet, which I have been holding off until this cardigan is finished, but then I decided that as he had been looking after me so well, I would make the Amigurumi Burger that David has been asking me to make for him since the summer!
It is from issue 55 of Mollie Makes magazine and really is the cutest thing.
It is crocheted in Stylecraft Cotton and includes the burger, bun, cheese, lettuce, tomato and onions.
David is delighted that I finally got round to making it for him!
But that left Ally (6) wanting a little bit of crochet junk food too. He asked if I would be able to make him a doughnut.
That was a really quick make. It took around an hour to make the doughnut, using an adapted version of a pattern I found on Pinterest.
He too was delighted with his junk food. He named his doughnut Donnie the Doughnut and spent the rest of the week taking him everywhere with him!
