An old favourite

The last few weeks I’ve been gaming a lot,  Yoshi’s Woolly World has consumed most of my time. It’s so much fun!

I have made a fair bit of progress on Hiraeth though.

This striped section goes on for a while now . The yarn is so delicate that all the imperfections scream out at me, but it’s also soft and gorgeous. Plus I’m hoping when the shawl is worn those areas will seem less obvious.

I also revisited a favorite pattern recently. Mochimochiland’s Tiny Baby Bunnies. You might remember I first made them in 2012 for the Mochimochiland photo contest

Bunny 1.0 has embroidered eyes

Bunny 2.0 has bead eyes and a couple of extra rows which gives him a more defined muzzle.

I made them both for a work colleague to keep her company after I moved desks (taking my mini soot sprite & pink totoro with me)

It’s such a fab pattern, I love Mochimochiland!

Start as you mean to go on

Happy New Year to you all!

It’s 2016 – I can’t quite believe it.

I’m looking forward with excitement to all the woolly projects for the year to come.

I’m still working on Hiraeth. I’ll very soon reach 124 stitches which means it’s time to change colour and do the next section. I’m very tempted to get out my hank of purple Drops lace for this. I might even use the blue as well and make it a tri-colour affair.

Some of you may have seen that I got the game Yoshi’s Woolly World for Christmas. It’s making me want to knit everything in it!

I’m also planning on sorting through my many UFOs to decide what to finish and what to frog.
I would like to pick a few new projects  to start off the year. My bundle of magazines should help with this. What are your knitting/crochet plans for 2016?
