Hello! Hope you are having a good weekend so far. We all went away for a week over the Easter break, to attend a friend's wedding and catch up with family.
The second photo above shows the riot of Japanese anemones in my mum's garden. Aren't they beautiful? Slightly refined and crazy at the same time.
There are quite a few new babies being born in my circle of friends and family. Project-wise, I have some baby gifts in progress and this morning I finished making some small knitted animals - like the ones I made here.
The original idea and pattern for these can be found here (thank you Rachel!) but I've changed them up a bit.
I love making these - and an extra benefit is that I can use small balls of yarn leftover from other projects.These particular animals are made from 4 ply scraps, including sock yarn, handspun silk and merino, and the leftover yarn from this cowl project.
Before sending these characters off to their new homes, I hope to make some little cases like these with embroidered initials.
Here's a favourite song for your Saturday: A little lost.
See you again soon!
