More from the Tea Room!

1 Comment

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.

Bo Rabbit

DSCN3907

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!

Edward Bear

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

DSCN3852

Love this doll pattern, she is about 12″, quick to knit and you can have a lot of fun with colour combinations for her.

DSCN3848Always looks well co-ordinated with matching cardigan and I knitted her a little bag to match her shoes.

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

  1. Hello Carole,

    Happy New Year!!

    It’s lovely to see your knitted creations are doing so well! They are beautiful. I really hope we can meet up for lunch soon, so much to catch up on! I have changed my email and it wouldn’t let me move across my address book, so I don’t have your home email anymore.
    Can you send an email to my Lipa address and we can catch up?

    Hope you and the family are well

    Love and Hugs,

    Sherry xx
