Hope you’re all having a great sunny weekend! After spending Saturday at The Knitting and Stitching Show and doing a bit of much needed Spring cleaning in my studio I realised I have lots of pics and updates I still need to share with you!! I’ll do my best to bring you up to speed on what’s been going on in these last weeks (including a trip to Madrid with crafts shopping involved!).
But first things first… in case you were wondering what happened with the little lamb amigurumi I started working on some weeks ago… here’s how we got on together 🙂
This is the pic I shared on Instagram
After enjoying making my first amigurumi, I decided to embark on a new mission… making a beautiful and cosy little lamb for my lovely “niece” Cloe. I was inspired by the project on last month’s Crafty Magazine (worth having a look at!).
I must admit counting stitches is not my cup of tea but I’m really pleased with the results. As you can see I don’t have stitch markers (yet!) so a bright coloured piece of yarn did the trick.
I spent quite a few afternoons working on this project and my other half suffered in silence as I made it very clear that I shouldn’t be interrupted (I definitely didn’t want to lose count of my stitches!). He was really patient and even volunteered to go safety eyes shopping.
I hoped to have it finished before I travelled to Madrid but I only had time to finish all the parts and stuff them… the sewing together took place there. So Cloe’s little lamb is half English half Spanish (not a bad mix!).

…and even facing backwards. Love the little tail!
I couldn’t help myself and made a girly poncho for her too! She is such a beautiful little girl… just thinking of her makes me smile 🙂
Have you been working on any projects for your little ones? Or big ones?
Hope you enjoy what’s left of the weekend and wish you a wonderful week ahead!
