* 5 / 2012 *

This year I decided that I was going to try and plan ahead with my knitted items so I had things ready in my shop  for special events like Easter, Halloween, Valentines Day etc. So I feel quite proud of myself that I've actually managed to get something in there already.
This little girl is called Oona and she has a patterned heart on her jumper and is also holding a little knitted heart which she is hoping to give someone on Valentines Day.


 This second little girl is called Maura and she was a bit of a test as I made her using two different yarns twisted together to see what the effect would be and I think she turned out okay. I might try doing this again but with two yarns of a similar shade rather than being completely different.


I'm thinking of making some little lambs for Easter, which I know is months away but like I said .... I'm planning ahead and I've never done a lamb before and maybe some ducks too ... oooh  lots of ideas whooshing around in this little head of mine.

Your plans all sound delicious. I think the effect of twisting those two yarns together is simply wonderful. Do it again!

Joyful new year to you.

It is good to get ahead stocking up your shop and I am sure you will feel all the better for it! I like both of the bunnies equally. I love the jumper on the first one and the two tone yarn on the second one. The sheep/lambs sound like a great idea too for Easter. x

Very cut bunnies and I like the idea of lambs, bet they'd sell well. Bx
