One finished fox and some WIPs!

 Meet Fenella Fox.Sometime ago my daughter asked me to knit two rabbits,one boy ,one girl (from Little Cotton Rabbits) for a colleague who is expecting twins,one girl and one boy.I have shown you photos of the rabbits before.However this friend has also a 5 yr old and I didn't want her to feel left out so I made her Fenella.I hope she likes her.They are very fiddly to make but worth the effort!
 This is blanket number two.One for each of my grandsons.They are both finished apart from the edging(boo-I hate doing edging).These are something mindless to do while watching TV.
 This is another almost finished project-socks for C.This is the second one so almost there.Again another thing to do while telly watching.

Now these next two projects require a little more concentration.
 This is a scarf I am knitting for my sister in law for Xmas.The yarn is Posh Yarn Eva 50% silk,50 % merino lace weight.The pattern is Leaf Lace by Cayli Harris.Free on ravelry.The pattern isn't very clear here but it  looks good.
 Another lace project.This laceweight cashmere(bought at Yarndale for £10-bargain).This is going to be Evelyn Clark's Swallowtail shawl.This should be done on a circular needle but I prefer straight until it gets too big.
Lastly, my first attempt at felting.A poppy brooch.
Do you have lots of projects on the go or just do one at a time?


  1. You have a great eye for colour. I know what you mean about edging; I've just done a blanket and it took ages. I tend to have one big project and 1 small project on the go at any one time. If I have more than that I start to get panicky for some reason.

  2. Love the fox. It's so cute!
    I've got more than a few WIP's at the moment. I'm knitting a patchwork throw .... I'm about half way through. I've got a little teddy half finished.
    I started a granny square throw, but that's on hold at the moment. Meanwhile, I'm making a scrapbook as a surprise for my husband for when he retires next July. There's not enough hours in the day, or days in the week.

  3. She is going to LOVE that fox, she is so adorable. I love all you current works and that broach is fantastic.

  4. The wee fox is very very sweet looking. I am sure all three will be loved. The brooch is very beautiful..
    I missed your yarndale post. Wonderful photos.. I especially like the Dorset Button kit.. I really enjoying making Dorset Buttons.. I would LOVE to see yours when you make it. Hugs Judy

  5. Gorgeous makes as ever. The recipients will be very lucky and pleased to have them. Just reading about your French trip - we too did Northern France by the back roads a few years ago - a lovely break. Le Touquet out of season was very weird though, as you say! xCathy

  6. Fenella Fox is very cute I'm sure the five year old will loved her:)

  7. Your lace knitting is wonderful! I don't seem to be able to concentrate on things like this these days and so I'm working on mindless things when I sit down in front the TV! Very satisfying though.

  8. Came across you via Bobo's blog... love all your knitty things. I have just bought myself One Skein Wonders, lacy knitting projects. Apart from lacy baby things knitted many many years ago, I haven't done any lacy stuff but thought I'd like to give it a go. The swallowtail shawl is so beautiful.

  9. I am lonving these crafty blogs. I followed you here from Mum's blog. I crochet, but am not nearly as skilled. You and Mum are inspiring me. Dianne
