This was made as a sample for The Knitting Tree, L A. It only took two days to make all the components and sew them together. The wording in the pattern was a bit unusual, but easily modified into something I could understand. While I detest sewing components together, this was not so bad. My guess is because the seams are so short and there is not a multitude of components to seam together. The most popular comment at the store was that the eggs look like boobies. WTH? They look like eggs to me and they were fun to make. My bacon differs from the original pattern in that I added an additional two stripes of the darker color for a more balanced piece of bacon.
