A customer asked if I could knit a Tatty Teddy for her grand-child.
I now need to try size it up. He's about 8" but she asked for one about 12".
Found the pattern for this on Ravelry (sorry, no link as I'm doing this post via my phone!). The pattern is bi-lingual, French and English. The knitting part is written pretty well but the making up instructions are pretty sparse so it's definitely not a pattern for beginners.
The lady who runs the choir I sing with asked if I would make her a bag. I'd made one for her back around Easter, but she wants another, more wintery, bag.
I found this tea towels in the local supermarket. €7 for the three.
I think they could make a very nice bag - or two.
I knit this from a pattern I found on Ravelry. I used Aldi Aran weight yarn and 6.5 mm needles.
It's beautifully squishy and soft. It's for a friend for Christmas, but I want one for me too now. And so does DH!
Every time I'm at the sewing machine these days Oliver is over asking if what I'm making is for him.
So after finishing a few dresses I decided to make a waistcoat for him.
It's made from one of DH'snold shirts and is modelled on a H&M waistcoat Oliver got last Christmas.
Think it turned out pretty cute!
