I have been busy working on some projects in the last week. You've seen elements of them already but now they are complete (well almost because I have some additional plans for the cloud!)
I cannot take the credit for the idea of the cloud - I first spied it in Craftzine Magazine a couple of months ago and was intrigued to find out who had designed it. Over to Anna at MochiMochi Land who is the greatest designer of cuteness in knitting I've seen! My cloud I decided to felt and add a few additions too.
The cloud is also for my friend's baby - as a mobile - I added a silver lining as perhaps a cloud with raindrops over a baby's bed may be a little depressing - of course it is a Scottish baby so it is the type of weather he/she will have to get used to!!!
Then Anna appeared in the Fall edition of Knitty with her adorable pattern for the woodins and their log home. I've shown you the partially knitted log, but now it has also been felted, stuffed and sewn together! Only the woodins to go. Talking of the woodins - I started the first one the other lunchtime - I felt like I was entering an extreme knitting competition. Both of the little legs are knitted separately in the round and then in one row you join them together - so at a certain point I had 7 DPNs on the go at one time........ I should have got a photo of that - perhaps next time my camera will be at the ready!
