The staff of life!!!!

A lovely lady called Roxanne contacted me. She lives in beautiful Dorset. She asked me if I could knit a loaf of bread for her. But not any ordinary loaf of bread, a special one. One that everyone knows and can remember.
This to be exact.....

I knew I'd be able to make one, I just had to do a test pattern first. I always do a test, I call it my "grey", knitting in grey yarn. That way, I can see if I need to make any adjustments to the shapings, or design.

Well here's my finished loaf......

My aim with my knitting is to make what I see. I hope I've done the loaf justice.
It was a pleasure to make this and I hope Roxanne will be very happy with it.
Thank you Roxanne!
