Knitting and crochet




I have had a busy few days while waiting for the weather to improve. I knitted the children each a jelly baby, which they enjoyed playing with. Then my cousin suggested that I make an Iggle Piggle from "In the Night Garden" as his son is a big fan, I was nagged into designing one for him. I am quite pleased with the result, it does need a bit of tweaking, but the first try wasn't too far off. My cousin's son seemed impressed with his Iggle Piggle and I am impressed with myself for designing him! I have started typing up the pattern for future use. I have also started crocheting a baby shawl to send to my stepsister in South Africa for her baby son. I have also a few new projects that I will be starting for Christmas presents, will be putting pictures up once I do start them. The first two are blankets from http://www.happyyellowhouse.com/ website which has some stunning quilt blanket patterns on it. I will be making the school bus blankets for my nephew and cousin's son. Will keep updated on the other projects to be started.
