Princess Izzy

Hi All,

Izzy is almost back from being cyclops.

And of course some more Barbie dresses to round things off.

Cheers, Sharine

Floral Beauty at last.

Hi All,

Finally for the first time this year Floral Beauty got to come out and play.
I don't know what it is but I just can't seem to center them right but oh well.

And I can't forget about the little penguin.

Cheers, Sharine

Hi All,

Would you believe I finally got up to the Piper this week.

And this week the girls requested that their Barbies be covered a little more and being the superstar mum that I am(and letting the washing pile up in the process) I knitted these up for them.
I got the pattern of here and it is pattern A58.
I did change needle size to 3.25mm and I used 4ply baby wool. I also cast off the undies/bikini bottom  using 3.75mm as they were a bit hard for the girls to slide up and down.
Cheers, Sharine

Some finishes:)

Hi All,

My first finish on the weekend came from Bella's cardi. The pattern is Kina and the yarn is 10ply Spring Jonquils from Candy Apple Lane. You can find her on facebook.

And I finished my little Angel

Which meant a new start. The penguin from the same series.
Cheers, Sharine

WIPocalpyse #2

Hi All,

Here is how I went for the month.

Piper Tir N Org- had a page finish!
This time

Princess Izzy/Cyclops- also with a page finish
This time
Angel ornament last time
With just a little backstitch to go
I haven't had a chance to work on Floral Beauty for a while.

This months topic-How many projects do you generally feel comfortable having in progress at a time?  Tell us about your one-at-a-time or rotation habits!

Clearly I don't stick to one at a time. My rotation is- Sunday to Friday Piper and Izzy swap week to week. Saturday the kids stay up late so I work on Angel as she doesn't require the attention the other two do. Floral Beauty comes out when my mother-in-law who lives with us isn't home which is why it moves so slowly.
Cheers, Sharine

So close now

Hi All,

To reaching the Piper but his turn is finished this week.

And just a little more background to go on  Bellas/Charlottes/Hannahs whoever is the quickest Angel ornament. This is from The World Of Cross Stitching magazine issue 184.
