white teddy

good morning crafters and welcome to my share for today.
i have to admit i am enjoying my recent fest of knitting, and i throughly enjoying knitting up these soft toys and clothes by Susan Hickson:  maryjane's tearoom
today's teddy is completed wearing a cute lemon dress and shoes
my teddy:

these patterns i have found to be so easy to follow and will probably be knitting a few more over the next few months.

teddy sitting with her querky smile.

here's what i have used to complete her:
needles: 21/4 mm
4ply wool in white and lemon (acrylic) from my stash

she is small than the original teddy as i have used smaller needles and finer wool.

i am so pleased at how this little cutie has turned out.

join me again soon for my next project.

A little spot of knitting.
Meet Oscar this weeks knitting poject.
 I have to admit I have fads/fazes of jumping from one craft to another and although I have a few projects in the wings I couldn't resist making this fella.

the original pattern is Bo from https://www.maryjanestearoom.com
were you will find some sweet knitting patterns by Susan Hickson

Although I have to admit I need to improve on some of my sewing skills i have to say 
he's handsome nonetheless.

3mm needles
hayfied: spirit dk
