Easter balls!!

I have been knitting Easter baubles this week. They are from an another amazing book from Arne & Carlos, called Easter Knits. I made one yesterday which is the one in the pictures, and have just started a new one now. The ball I am knitting now has little tulips in pots and is very cute. I haven't been knitting with dale of Norway yarn though as was turning out to be really expensive shipping it over from America. I have been using Millamia wool and works just as well, maybe even better. I got the idea from a blog which suggest this and thought it would be a good idea to have a go with it. I have only used Millamia wool twice before and I love it!!
Here are some pictures. Will post a picture of the other bauble when I have finished.

Flo's knitting bag!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Today I have been making a knitting bag for my grandma (who has her knitting in a brown paper bag )

Here are some pictures of how it evolved

I now just have to hand stitch the lining to the main fabric!!!!!!!

Have a nice week , love Maisie xx xxxx

Blogs we love

Hi Olivia here
Have added some really blogs to our blog. Please check them out as they are both nice and both have links to patterns (some free!) I especially like the night knitter as it has a pattern every post.

Hi! Olivia here,
I have almost finished my teddy bear. Have made both sides of the head, the body and one arm. I am currently in the middle of an arm. The debbie bliss wool is so nice and soft.

Very excited because my new baby cousin was born last week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don't now what to make her, any ideas ...............................................

Such a Sweet Teddy Bear!

I have been making a teddy bear with scraps from a cardigan and it is looking very cute. I have finished the body and have started on the head but am thinking about starting the head again as there is a hole in there somehow. The wool is Debbie bliss baby cash merino. I love this wool because it is so soft and doesn't separate. Will post a picture tomorrow.
