My Kittens Have Faces...

I have now sewn the kitten faces onto Block One of A Kittens Tale. The kittens look finished now. The suffolk puffs are the only items left to finish this block but I will have to wait until it is quilted before I sew them on.

Pop over to Rosycrafts and check out her cute Girly Doll Giveaway. Entries close April 24th.

A Kittens Tale...

I've almost finished the first block of A Kittens Tale by Lynette Anderson Designs. All that is left to do are the faces (I'll stitch them tonight while watching TV) and add the suffolk puffs which need to be added last after the quilting has been done. It's very cute! I think the special someone I am making the quilt for will love it!

Happy Belated Easter to All!!!

Autumn Knitting...

With the cooler weather on the way I'm in the mood for knitting. What better way to start than by knitting myself some fingerless gloves! I've really wanted a pair for a long time. I knitted them using Patons Zhivago Yarn . The pattern is from Patons Book 1277. The gloves are very comfortable and soft.
Now I have finished the gloves I want to knit some socks. I bought one skein of Noro sock yarn at The Yarnbarn and two skeins of Moda Vera Noir at Spotlight. I have never knitted with double pointed needles but I'm sure it can't be too hard. At least I won't have to sew the socks up at the end.
