Yesterday I knitted a shell....................well really a knitted form that looks like a shell.

I didn't actually go to the beach and get a shell and then break it up and knit it. DUH!
I've been challenged by the knitting needles of late because:
I figure that what I can do in crochet I can do in knitting.
Knitting is straight with all the stitches on a needle (or two or three or four or five.......) whereas with crochet it's only one stitch on the hook.
I want to see if I can get things to curl and bulge and recede with knitting just like I can with crochet.
So I made a shell.
The most amazing thing is that I did not frog anything. The frog, I think from the noise going on was very sad.
I did finish it off with crochet but that's only the trim and the circular end bit of the inside of the shell............so the stuffing is covered.
But you could call it a hidden shell animal!
And I might add there is NO pattern.
I don't do patterns because I only want to make things once. Too many things to play with rather than repeat repeat repeat.........now that is a ripping frog noise too!
So I don't want to rip out rip out rip out and I don't want to repeat.....repeat......repeat.........
