The period before Christmas was so busy, there were times when I thought I was running Santa’s workshop. Most of the items I’ve knitted in the past few months have been toys so I think I’ll start the New year off working on some baby clothes!
Now that I have a bit of spare time I’ll share a few of the items I made just in time for Christmas.
My favourites were a bear and rabbit made from patterns from Mary Jane’s Tearoom.
They were big projects which required a lot of work but well worth it.
She is a bunny all set for the ski slopes.
Her body is knitted in DK yarn with clothes in 4ply. I just loved the leg warmers and snow boots. The little details just make these rabbits.
She measures 17″ when standing I knitted the body with 4mm needles and the clothes on 3.25mm, love her long floppy ears which were done in double moss stitch and adds a contrasting texture against all the stocking stitch.
I’m sure she is a bunny who would enjoy the Apres Ski as well!
He is actually Mary Jane’s Romeo Bear, but when I put him all together he was definately an Edward bear in my mind.
He came out such a cuddly little bear, he is knitted in DK along with his cute little outfit. Loved his little jumper with the fair isle kisses and hearts motif.
Again he stands at 17″ and very smart in his new walking shoes.
Although hard work he is definately a teddy you would want to make again.
Chloe the Doll
Love this doll pattern, she is about 12″, quick to knit and you can have a lot of fun with colour combinations for her.
2014 has been a busy and productive year on the knitting front and I’m looking forward to creating more in 2015.
Happy New Year everybody! Hope it is a good one for you all xx
