Fun idea!
The start reminded me of doing cat's cradle - anyone remember doing that?
You wouldn't want to need the loo half way through knitting :roflmao:

I want to make one in brighter colours but don't have any thick yarn, although I have no shortage of other yarn!

This was my first attempt - I bought this yarn, but this was the only colour:

I found this in my stash, so added the purple to brighten it up, but maybe it would have been better with thicker purple

In this one she uses loads of different strands

I didn't tuck my yarn through like that I just slipped it off, like in this one:

It's good, Carolyn. I don't think you will have any trouble selling that.
