FO Friday - The Big Reveal

Meet Daisy the Duck!

Ok, not such a big reveal, unless any of you were waiting on tenterhooks to see what all those little bits of knitting were made up into, which I very much doubt.

Daisy is made for this kit: Daizy Duck, but since she is a non-dyslexic duck, I renamed her. Also, my picture is far more accurate for the colours than the one on the kit.

I had a few gauge issues (and by that I mean that I knew I had the wrong gauge, but carried on anyway, as I thought it wouldn't matter.) The problem with the body was easy to fix by extending the tail, but the head was the major problem. It was a really weird shape and much too big for the neck, and the slit for the beak was about twice as long as it should have been. I ended up sewing darts up either side of the head to give it a more normal shape, and just closing up the slits either side of the beak. I think she turned out quite well considering.
