Intro: Humpty Dumpty Sat on the Wall, Again and Again!

I love knitting Humpty dumpty toys and have knitted several for gifts. They are easy to make from a Jean Greenhowe pattern book called Jean Greenhowe Traditional Favourties. This is a great book and contains patterns for several other toys, including some great teddy bears, dolls and clowns. http://www.jeangreenhowe.com/index.html
I have knitted them mostly in Red Heart yarns

but any oddments of similar weight yarns will do, including Lion Brand Woolease. http://cache.lionbrand.com//yarns/woolease.htm Woolease is really nice and soft. I use 3mm needles for all my toys and stuff them with non toxic fibre fill for safety.
