A Week in WIP's

This week I've been busy working on the many projects I have on the go and trying to finish them up so I can start new ones!! My mind is seriously never lacking on ideas!


I'm pleased that I've managed to get a couple of them out the way as well as carrying on with current ones (all links to patterns are listed at the end of this post). I finished a teddy bear baby rattle on Wednesday which was actually really easy to make. The pattern is from One and Two Company - I love all the patterns and they are so easy to follow with detailed pictures. I've used Drops Paris in Dark Beige and Rico Creative Cotton Aran in Light Blue with Drops Paris in Off White for the snout and black for the eyes and nose. This is a gift for a new baby boy as well as some dungarees I'm also attempting to make.


So far the pattern is easy to follow and I've manage to make the bottom half without any problems! I'm using New Fashion DK in Glacia.


I made this cat cushion a while ago for my sister-in-law who's birthday was this weekend. See my previous post for details of the pattern. I used some lovely DK yarn from Sirdar (Hayfield Bonus DK) in Primrose and some Drops Paris in Off White.


Also mentioned in the same post as linked above I've been working on some car bunting for my Godson's 2nd birthday coming up in March. I've decided to add the letters of his name in there too and I just made up a simple square shape with a point on the end, using this lovely red yarn from James C. Brett in Cotton on DK, shade 15. I'll be purchasing some felt letters and sewing them on at the end.

So I have a couple of things still on the go which will hopefully be finished/near completion by next week!
