We put the 2 goslings I hatched in the incubator with her 3 babies yesterday afternoon. I had them out with the ducklings in the pen, but the ducks were beating them up. So I thought to put them with their own brothers and sisters. Sissy looked at them, said, "Honk" and led them all away. I guess the adoption is complete then!
I cannot walk around with baby ducks under my arm, so I invented these little pockets. In the nursery, I put the pocket on it's side and the ducklings snuggle inside and sleep. It's funny to see naught but a little yellow ducky tail sticking out the edge of the pocket!
Cast on 30, knit in stockinette for a while...I think I did something like 12 rows, bind off 5 at the beginning and 5 at the end, knit 10 rows in stockinette, then cast on 5 stitches at the beginning, and another 5 at the end. Knit for the same rows as before the decrease (12 rows in my case, then bind off. To construct that into a pocket, you'll need to follow the letters:
Once the sewing is done, I put a row of single crochet across the top to make it sturdier. They'd make cute little baskets for stuff too.
Now that hatching is over for the year, I am thinking I'll throw it in the washer and see how it felts. Maybe that will make it a firmer pocket.
See? I still knit. It's just odd stuff that comes off the needles.
