My local yarn store has recently changed owners and has run out of lots of things (yes, stuffing is one of them) and due to the holidays and snowy weather, I haven't been able to get out to a different town to buy any. What am I to do? I can't make stuffed, knitted toys without stuffing - or can I?
What can I think of that I can knit but is hollow and will stand stiff without polyfibre filling?
A PIGGY BANK.
Hallooo in there! Yes as you can see, Once the plug has been removed, he really is hollow in there (you can see the slot on the other side) and it is quite a big space - Space for lots of savings. Now we are all starting to think about saving whether it be for next Summer Holiday or even Next Christmas.

She will happily make up any colours you ask for; for this project I asked for a blue/green mix. The yarn is 100% wool and very pretty.
Here is a better picture of how the colours turned out after knitting and blocking. Very nice don't you think?
