The Competition is now closed I will be picking the winners and displaying the results before 9pm.
Hi! It's nice and sunny here today, still a bit on the nippy front and I'm still stunned at seeing my first short and tshirt wearer of the year. It's ((((February)))) put some more clothes on lol. What is it they say "Ne'er cast a clout til Mays out" i.e. don't cast any clothes off until May is out of the way. Anyway competition time:
I would like to say a big thank-you to Josiekitten for my Pay It Forward gift that I won after leaving a comment on her blog.
These are the wonderful gifts that where looking up at me when I opened the parcel.
Beautiful pink, lilac and white washcloth. A chocolate sheep nom, nom, very yummy hic!!! Heart shaped soap that Josiekittens friend made it smells heavenly.
So now for my part in Paying It Forward.
All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning a little gift is to leave me a comment between now and the 7th of March 2011 on this date. I'll randomly select three people to be winners! Go on -it's easy peasy, you could be a winner. xx
Off the Needles:
I've managed to finish a couple of items during the month of February. Knitting is very theraputic and my constant companion.....keeps my fingers and hands out of mischief.
I'm not sure why most of them are toys it's not like I have a kid to knit for but hey-hoo! I enjoyed making them. First up is:
Well Dressed Bunny
by Barbara Prime
I just love this little guy to bits. He's knitted in Sirdar Double Knitting, his waistcoat is knit in Regia 4ply sock yarn. His little jacket is knitted in Navy Merino yarn and topped off with a duck button. Very dapper don't you think?
My mums in love with him however I can't bear to part with him, so I'm going to make my mum the little girl wabbit version, she's very purty. Shhhhhhh! it's surprise.
Bunny Blanket Buddy
Knit in Sirdar Calico, I doubled the strands whilst knitting to give this item more structure. The yarn is lovely and soft just right for a little person to squidge and bite on. I'm just not sure of it's facial expression looks quite scary- might change it to a softer look =D
Lovely close up shot.
I love, love, love these. Even though they look a bit oddly coloured. Knit in Easyknits Merino- Gunmetal and Zauberball- Cranberry.

What I'm listening to:
I'm now going to settle down next to the window, with my new Crochet Today Magazine, a cup of tea, my ipod and my knitting. Have a lovely day everyone, speak to you soon.
