DH has just come back from his annual business trip to the Nuremberg Toy Fair, yes honestly it is for work (at least he assures me it is ;-0) and on his pillow in the hotel, instead of a chocolate, was this....
and being little jelly sheep he just had to bring them back for me.
While he was away a friend gave me some oddments of 'fancy' yarn, and though initially I wasn't too struck, another friend suggested how good a little lady comfort doll would look in 'denim' jeans and a bobbly jumper - so I had to give it a go, and at some unearthly hour sitting up in bed knitting (well while the cat's away....) I decided earrings would be in order so that it was quite clear that she was a girl. I wanted to make sure they couldn't be pulled off so I came up with the idea of stitching loops of gold thread firmly where her ears would be (round a pen to get them even) and then button holed around them - voila, hoops!
And finally I finished Baby Blocks blanket from The Shop on Blossom Street pattern, although I quite enjoyed this pattern, and don't think it will be the last time I use it, I wasn't sorry to come to the end - there are too many patterns out there shouting "make me!" at the moment.
