A friend showed me her copy of this knitting book a few weeks back, and I bought it immediately. Look to the right of the cover, it's Andy Murray!
Apparently he wasn't able to be at the Italian Open or the French Open due to a back injury, so I though I'd knit him a wee replica. I'm hoping as I work all his bits and pieces that he'll heal up nicely in the process - like a reverse Voodoo doll.
When I took these photos he was still naked and senseless, but I've since embroidered his face.
I've also knit his shorts and t-shirt, but they need sewing up and embroidering, too. I've still got to make the tennis racquet, which looks a tad tricky.
My plan is to have him all ready for Wimbledon. C'mon Andy!
