anpanman

[I’ve been writing two knitting blogs in two different languages for a while but I’ve decided to combine the two, writing this blog bilingually.]

anyways, in Japan, we have a superhero made of bread called “Anpanman”. “Anpan” is a sweet bread with sweet red bean paste or adzuki paste in it. many kids love this character and my nephew is no exception. so, I improvised a pattern following some pictures of Anpanman I downloaded from various websites. here he is!

as soon as my nephew saw him, he yelled “Ah, Anpanman!!”. so glad to hear that:)

it turns out that he likes Anpanman’s enemy “Baikinman” (the virus man) better. this guy seems a bit tricky to make, but maybe someday….

みなさまご存知、アンパンマンを、見よう見まねで作ってみました。アンパンマン大好きな甥っ子へのプレゼントです。この子を見るなり、「あ!アンパンマン!!」と喜んでくれた甥っ子。作った甲斐がありました:)

実は、アンパンマンよりバイキンマンの方が好きだという甥っ子。バイキンマンは、つの(?)があったりして難しそうだけど、クリスマスも近づいてくるし、チャレンジしてみようかな….?
