Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary...

...how does your garden grow...
 ...with silver bells...
 ...and cockle shells...
 ...and pretty maids all in a row...


This old nursery rhyme inspired Alan Dart to create one of the designs in a booklet of patterns,  Nursery Rhyme Mice, which was distributed with a Simply Knitting magazine years ago.


I decided to make Mary towards the end of last year and really enjoyed knitting the different parts of the pattern on a pair of little wooden needles but I put off sewing it all together at the time (a reoccurring stumbling block of mine).


So Mary has been hibernating until recently when I half-heartedly assembled most of the pieces together. I guess I just lost interest in this one so I'm going to move on to other projects that captivate me more.
