It doesn't take much yarn to knit up a pretty gift for someone.
Here are some knits, past and 'present' - Please excuse the pun.
|Fingerless mitts are easy to make|
I made a little flower for these (made last year). But you could simply make them in a self striping yarn - no need to change colours
|These bright colours were requested. Recipient loves it|
This Alan Dart toy pattern was a bit fiddly, but worth it.
|My son's mascot|
|Little sachet with pretty ribbon|
Ravelry.com Has a huge database of free patterns and helpful forums for beginners, and the more experienced knitters
|Made for my daughter, Bunny called Binky-Boo|
If you buy wool/yarn for a small project like Binky here, try and make two or three for various people, to be economical
|Bear who needs a cuddle|
It doesn't always come out perfectly - as in the bear above. But they will be cherished more than a factory made clone. I also thing the imperfect ones are loved even more.
|A happy bunny in her frock|
There are so many ways to use up wool scraps and delight someone too
Maybe I will post some of the myriad hats and scarves another day. In the meantime, don't forget to be inventive with your fabric scraps too
|A little bit of imagination and..|
Happy Creating, Home-makers
