You have to be fair!

A request was made by one of my nephews for a snake representing his chinese horoscope.  Using some variegated sock yarn from my yarn stash I whipped up one colourful snake which he loves.

Eyeing the snake, his younger brother quickly asked for a sheep which is his chinese horoscope animal.  I had to check all my craft books and the web to find the perfect design...found it in Wild and Wonderful Fleece Animals by Linda Carr.  Also found the perfect fleece which is so wonderfully soft and huggable.  As the sheep's face is black it is hard to see his smile.  Hope my nephew will love much as  I loved making it for him!

Blankets for All!

I was in a mood to make some blankets!  Found a lovely pattern on, the chalice blanket and wanted to make one for some younger members of my family.  Here they are enjoying the blankets that I knitted for them with love!  I love how they even match theor blankets!

I hope that they will cherish them and use them even when they grow up!
