Been away for a while.....

Hi, I've not posted for some time. I've had a spell of either not being overly creative; making things for others or just plain lazy.

But I've produced a few things that I'm super proud here we go...

This is my new kitchen blind. We bought the fabric from skandium sale shop a few years ago and have been thinking what to use it for. It's Marimekko and just seemed too fabulous to cut up. It's got a panda in bowler hat and braces!
The structure of the blind came courtesy of this website tutorial (jenduncan). The fabric needs to settle down a bit when in the folded position but so far it's working really well.

So knitted stuff. My nephew came over to visit - he's 9 months and I'd not met him before so guessed the size for this really sweet looking cardigan. It's available on Ravelry.

It was a fairly quick knit, and used wool I already had. Unfortunately i didn't get to see him in the cardigan. Maybe I can persuade my sis to take a photo. I now want to make one for myself.

I mentioned in my last blog that I was knitting a red, plain jumper with some lovely wool. Well, here it is. 

 And finally the newest addition to our household. Some funky cat toys have been made for this little madam. She's called Malmo. (Excuse the shaved patch...she's had some work done).
