Biddle is pleased with his new jumper
It is the usual style but in three colours
As I had plenty of yarn left over I decided to make a hat using the same pattern as the one I knitted back in the autumn.
The photographs do not show the colours very well. At the moment I am not sure I have anything to wear it with but I thought the green and blackberry sort of colour went well together.
I have decided to make a new Mother Nature Doll from the Magic Thread pattern that I have. The original one was Autumn colours, my second one was a winter theme and this new one will be Spring, eventually I hope to make summer as well. They are rather large so they take up quite a bit of space.
This is how it begins
chopped up pieces of fabric, some are new fabrics and some are off cuts from other projects.
I drew around the tree trunk pattern
The outline will now be covered with little pieces. The idea is not too be too systematic. I have it out on my table and every now and again put a few pieces on.
An overlay of netting and machine stitching will keep it all in place.
