Finished Embroidery

Image
Well, I got my little embroidery finished this weekend. It probably wasn't the best for me as it was nearly all French knots and I'm not so good at that stitch. I'm a little better now though after doing about 100 of them!
I just need to get a little mini frame for it now.

Birthday Time-Out

Image
It's my birthday today (yeah!) so I decided to do a bit of fun crafting just for me. I got this embroidery kit at the Knitting and Stitching show last October.

It's a long time since I've done any serious embroidery so hopefully it'll turn out ok.

Another Moderne Baby Blanket

Image
I tried a Moderne Baby Blanket a few months ago, after not knitting one for a few years. It turned out a hot mess!
But I decided to give it another go because I like the design so much. On starting this new blanket I realised my previous mistake: 18 garter ridges means 36 rows, not 18.
I've chosen pale ice-cream colours for this version. Hopefully it turns out nice!

Another Build-A-Bear party

Image
Emily was invited to a birthday party at Build-A-Bear Workshop so, like the last party there, I made teddy bear clothes for the birthday girl. Luckily Tiger stores had mini suitcases in stock so I got one to put the clothes in - it just finishes off the gift nicely.

This ski sweater was a pattern I had never used before. I found it on Ravelry and it's by Linda May. It was quick and easy to knit and could be customised to any outfit. I will definitely be knitting this one again.

A hat and scarf. I love the neon pink Pom-poms. It gives a real modern feel to these.

Miri-coloured top with neon heart - why not!!!
I hope the birthday girl likes them!

Designing WIP

I'm working on a cabled onesie for some bunnies this morning. It's a good thing I liked maths in school!
