OH, YOU BEAUTIFUL DOLL,
YOU GREAT BIG BEAUTIFUL DOLL...
LET ME PUT MY ARMS AROUND YOU,
I COULD NEVER LIVE WITHOUT YOU.....
These lyrics were swimming round my head as I was putting the finishing top stitching on this...
Another little quilt for the second granddaughter of the same lady who ordered last week's! This little girl is a definite pink fan but I thought I'd introduce some blue to calm things down a little :-)
Here it is when the light got better! I'm quite pleased with the little pillow.
I'm determined to use up all those squares I had ready cut...waste not want not etc etc! I've got enough for a LillyBo snuggler and another dolly cover.
Wipso was kind enough to share her knitting pattern with us last week - I thought I'd do the same with this pattern that comes from an ancient Good Housekeeping book I found in my Mum's stuff. I'm making a scarf for a charity project and the pattern gives it some interest but it's not too flimsy.
Lacy Ladder Pattern
Cast on required No of stitches (got to be a multiple of 4)
Knit 2 rows
Knit 4, (YO, K2tog, K2) rpt this until last 4 stitches, K4
Repeat this pattern row until scarf is as long as you want,
Knit 2 rows
That may be the shortest pattern I've EVER written down!!
And finally, two things made me very happy this week: my rainbow crochet bedrunner has been pinned many times on Pinterest (yay!!) and while I was shopping, I espied a woman with a tote bag that I'd made. She'd been given it as a present nearly two years ago and it was still looking good. She must have thought I was bonkers as I leapt around, happy that the handles were still holding out! Apparently she uses it as her Grocery Bag for Life.
Big Smiles :-) :-)
