Fried Egg Guy

comments: 139


Hey everyone! It’s Andy. And this here is my fried egg. He’s feeling a bit iffy about being on display. With lots of encouragement, though, he seems to be keeping it together and even managing a little smile. He might be a bit nervous still from some of the not very nice things I was saying while making him. I tend to be a bit… full body contact… with my knitting. I’ve broken needles. And yarn. But all that was before he had a face. Anyway, I have finally gotten back into my briefcase with all my needles and yarn after a pretty long break. Maybe I’ll pull all the stuff I have been making for the baby (we’re still waiting to be chosen, no word yet) and take a bunch of pics of them. Pretty much the classics. Fried eggs. Socks. In Bears and Cubs and winter-woods-walk colors. I am currently working on my own pattern for a set of French fries and sauces to go with my favorite food cart – Potato Champion. I’ll post it on Alicia’s Ravelry when I finish. Thank you.


you are the are all that AND a bag of chips mr paulson and that fried egg is a whole lotta fun....i find it most appropriate that you knit.. food....we women are knitting cutesy sweaters, booties and scarves while you are knitting food. makes sense to keep up the good work and keeping posting.

a happy fried egg - fab, looking forward to seeing the rest of your breakfast/brunch/lunch/dinner plate!

Wow! I didn't realize you were such a Renaissance man, Andy! I don't think Fried Egg Guy heard your disparaging ears ;)

I think my cats would like Fried Egg Guy, too. Whether FEG would like being liked by my cats is entirely a different matter!

LOL - I am super impressed at your creation, Andy - I cannot sew one stitch or knit anything! You will need to give us a step-by-step tutorial, k?

Take care - have a great day!

Yay! Another Andy-post!
Looks like Fried Egg makes a great cat toy! Stuff him with catnip and you'll have hours of entertainment watching your kitties trip on nip!

Andy, your egg is terrific! Just want to let you know that there is plenty of room on the Packer Bandwagon, if you want to join us!!! C'mom, ya gotta love A-Rodge more than J-Cut!!!

Oh Fried Egg Guy, don't be shy! You're a good egg :)

You rock, Andy! I am currently teaching my husband to knit and I know he needs to know your out there making beautiful, friendly food. He approves. Deeply.

Sending positive thoughts to both of you that good news comes soon. What a lucky kid this is...!

Well, I just don't know if I can eat another egg after this!!!

Mr Paulson you are too awesome.

I HEART THIS POST. And I will be looking for this woolen food in the future (and this food cart around Portland).

Mr. Paulson-I <3 your egg . . . and I bet if you wrote it up we'd all buy it! xoxo

This makes me want a fried egg like nobody's business.

I can not wait to show this to my husband! : )

Good man Andy!

This made my day! Thanks Andy. Oh, and how about some bacon while you're at it. I'd love a French fry pattern - and - a bacon pattern.

Who knew there were more than 900 patterns for toy food on Ravelry? And yes, there is a pattern for bacon.

I hope you are chosen soon!
