Lily's new jumper

I would like to claim the credit for making this jumper for Lily, but I can't - Aunty Eileen did & I sewed it up for her.

Lily loves it, so thank you Aunty Eileen if you are looking in

Yep - we had snow last week & didn't Coventry know about it!!

The schools closed, but Oliver had fun making a snowman.

Lily was most upset when he melted and his head fell off. She even cried when Timba ate the remaining lump the next day, saying that he had eaten the Snowman's Heart!

Octopus - body complete at last

I dread to think how many rows I have knitted..... too many to count, but the body of the Octopus is finally complete. it still needs a base and stuffing, but my stash basket is providing a fab replacement for the moment. It will also need eyes and a mouth and maybe some colourful spots, but these can be added later.

So its tentacle time now!!

Our first Workshop last night was a resounding success, with 13 members learning a new skill - needle felting. Each started a flower and we only had 8 yeps from self inflicted wounds!!

Here are some examples of what was made - these are still 'Work in Progress' as we found out that 2 hours was not really enough time to complete them - there will be more pictures here as they get finished.

Well done to you all and I look forward to seeing the finished articles

SP - more goodies

I got a fab new book this morning in the post - Felt it - by Maggie Pace

It has lots of great knit & felt ideas and projects - I can't wait to get started - it will make a change from Octopus - at least I have started to decrease for the top, still 1000's more stitches, but it does seem to be growing now.

Thanks SP - Michelle for being a fab SP and sending lots of cool stuff
