I know it's been a while since my last post, but I have a couple of projects on the go which are taking a lot of time to complete. But I got a copy of Let's Knit magazine last week as it came with some super cute patterns and some gorgeous 'self striping' yarn, produced exclusively for the magazine.
The yarn was designed for 3 different plush toys, and the one I chose to make with it was 'Sid the Snake', designed by Lynne Rowe. The other two are in progress and will be posted in the next couple of posts :D
Sid now has a home with my good friend Katie, who loves him already! The eyes went a little squiff near the end, but I like to think it adds to his own personal charm :)
Next post will be another plush animal, made using my (massive!) double knit yarn collection. I still haven't used it all, although I'm now down to 38 balls instead of 40 :p
