Balue the Whale

When Balue isn’t resting on his favorite chair, he loves to swim in the cerulean seas. His blue woolen back contrasts his ribbed grey belly in bamboo yarn. He sees in the depths with help of his immense metal button eyes. Balue has the highest quality blubber around made of premium polyester fiberfil complete with a red felt heart sewn inside.

Knitting is so rhythmic and calming. I learned how to knit during high school and still love to knit instead of letting my hands sit idle. Balue went directly from an image in my head to a collection of structured stitches. Pattern making is for sissies– freeform forever!
