WIP Wednesday 15th June 2011

Its a wet Wednesday :-( although Kinsley Wood still looks lovely with the mist and horizontal rain lashing across.  This week is Toy Challenge Week so I have gnomes and dollies to make.  I've got 2 babushka dolls on the go. The pattern was for a separate back and front but I hate sewing up and knitting such small rows with constant back forth turning so I've made them in the round on dpns.  Hoping to finish knitting the second doll whilst Erin naps this afternoon and then I will embroider their faces and stuff them this evening so I can start on the gnomes tomorrow.

Its not to late to join the Toy Challenge - make a little something for your kids this week :-)


Cant wait for FO Friday - here is a sneaky peak

To admire what all the other crafters are up to this week head over to Tami's Amis blog
