Knitted Underwater Scene

Hi Everyone!

I'm not quite ready to show you my special 'Ta - Dah!' yet, the Royal Wedding Blanket. Wondered whether you'd like to see these photos I took at the Hobbycraft/Sewing For Pleasure show last week.

Didn't think much of the show to be honest with you. There wasn't much yarn around and the best bit was the Life Boat stand 'The RNLI'  which was all knitted.  A nice entrance where you walked through and saw all of this.


This really was fantastic. I only came away with two Knitted mermaids for my Daughters. I know at 25 they are too big for them, but just a thought from Mom. Do you want to find out more? Click on the link

I also wanted to show you a Crocheted Cardigan I saw in Top Shop. The price was £70.00, not my colour but I loved the design and thought of making one.

I hope you are having a good week,

Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL No. 59

Table view!

Good afternoon everyone!

I have to thank 'jean nock' today for the beautiful Squares she sent me back in July of last year. I have at last managed to make them up into a Blanket.  25 of the most gorgeous Squares and I think so appropriate for a Man's Blanket.  I just love the Squares.  Great colour combinations.

Marion has sent me '25' Squares to make a Blanket! Aren't they just lovely? So suitable for our 'Mens' Blankets!....>

Ta - Dah! SIBOL No. 59!

These were great Squares to work with and I'm so happy I have now made the Blanket up. I'm sure one lucky Man in a home will be very pleased to receive this one! Thank you 'jean nock!'

I hope you are all having a good weekend.

Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL No. 58 'Circle of Friends'.

Ta - Dah! SIBOL 58. 'Circle of Friends'.

Good afternoon,

I'm thanking everyone that has contributed Squares for the 'Circle of Friends' Challenge. Squares have come in from all over the World. 25 Ladies from different countries.  I'm really so grateful to you all.

The colours in the Squares are just lovely and I'm really pleased how this one has finally come out. I did 'un-pick' the Squares three times! Bit of a nightmare. I just couldn't seem to get this one right. Anyway, I've done my best.

Table view.

Here's my Slide Show, thank you for visiting 'Mrs Twins' today!

Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL No. 57

Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL No. 57!

Good Evening Everyone!

I hope you are having a nice weekend.

Just popping in to show you the latest SIBOL.  It's No. 57.  Posy Linda (USA) sent me nearly 50 Squares April 2010.  I first of all made 'Butterfly' Blanket with 25 of them and the others have been waiting until now.
I have now finished the second of the Blankets using the majority of her Squares.  I have also used Squares from bonsall, Ruth and Sabiha.

Thanks to the Ladies who have contributed these Squares! 'please add note' if you see your Square!

The Story of her Squares is in her Special Slide Show over on SIBOL.


Would you like to make a Square for this special Challenge? Pop over to SIBOL.

Thanks for visiting me here on 'Mrs Twins' today!
