Its been a tough two weeks for me - I got vertigo, probably from a viral infection in my inner ear, and its very very slow to clear up.
Rest as sure I have plans for new patterns, and one that just needs to be typed up, I just need to get the energy to do them.
On one good day last week I set up an event on Facebook for a Market Night tonight. With the sickness I haven't finished as many toys as I would have wished, but there are a few up for sale.
Miss Aine Click on the link if you're interested in buying a Miss Aine toy. The Market Night starts at 9pm GMT tonight.
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.
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!
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!
