Teddies

Let us pursue what makes for
peace and for mutual up building.
-Romans 14:19


These little darlings have been so much fun to knit. Using scraps of 8 ply wool leftover from various projects have come in very handy to make these teddies. The pattern is from a Guardian Angel book issued from Guardian Chemists. If you are a beginner knitter then you will find them very easy and fast to make.

Another bunny has also popped up, this time using 8 ply orange. The link to this pattern is in a previous posting, so if you are interested in knitting this bunny, just flick back through my previous posts.

As I have now switched into holiday mode, there was little concern to move very fast. Pixie and I went to the shops and then stopped off at a cute little cafe down the main street for coffee. It is nice to watch the traffic putt by, and meet up with people you haven't seen for a while.
After dropping my hubby off at home, I returned to visit the library and the Op shoppe. I found some great treasures. These silver beads almost remind me of cherries.

Packets of golden beads, an aida cloth purse and a few other bits came home with me today. There was a stack of wool that I didn't dare touch, that stash of mine really has to get used before more wool comes home.
I have been given a big bag of material to use to make  toys and a ladybird pattern is the go at the moment. Nothing to show you yet, but when they are finished, I will share them with you.
Not long until that big boy slides down the chimney, getting all excited. Regards, Anita.

You sure these teddies are not multiplying in the dark when you are not watching?
Don't they look so cute!
