Ducks in a row

Just another unassuming knitted duck? Take a closer look (WARNING: next picture is of explicit nature!).
This knitted duck lays eggs! Depending on now you see it, the duck could also be pooping eggs, because as it turns out, this is a male duck. Go figure. So now you may ask, of all of the lovely patterns available on Ravelry, why has she chosen to spend her time knitting a pooping duck? N, asked me this so don't feel bad if you were thinking it too. Well, to make a long story short about a year ago my much beloved former boss asked me to knit her a crocheted duck that she once had as a child. Her grandmother had made each of her siblings a little duck that, when squeezed, would poop jellybeans. So being a crafter who can't resist a challenge I searched high and low for the pattern until I found it, however, my crochet skills consist of single crochet and double crochet stitches and so I continued to look for a knitted pattern that would work for this. Fast forward one year and I've finally found something that works. This duck pattern is actually for a felted dog toy but with a few modifications I was able to turn it into the lovely specimen you see before you. And just in time for Easter!

That guy is AWESOME! I've love a duck that poops chocolate eggs. Like Wonka's Golden Goose!
