Bernat Satin stash yarn
Mason*Dixon Knitting Mitred Blanket
classic nursery rhymes
an activity blankie for my Jubilee Bubilee!
My idea is to make a (much smaller) version of the Mason*Dixon mitred blanket and then knit and add-on activities inspired by classic nursery rhymes. Some I've thought of already: Humpty Dumpty on a brick wall, lost kitten mittens, a cow jumping over the moon, five little piggies glove puppet, Jack Horner's pie with pull out plum, etc. Of course I don't know if these knittables will actually work out so I need a longer list of ideas to choose from so if your wheels are turning too, please share ;0)
Oh, and be sure to visit Yarn Monkey if you want in to the Knitting World Cup too (I just visited and noticed there are some rules on how to incorporate an existing project as part og the challenge. Cast-on is this Friday.
That means 2 more days including today to finish up some gift knitting first. I've got to finish the second bunny cardi and one skein wonder for my niece. I'm planning on dropping all three off on the weekend so my brother-in-law and niece can bring pack the gifties in their suitcases when they fly off to Algeria to meet my sister and nephew on Tuesday (or is it Wednesday?). And Helene (my sis), if you're reading this, I got your message and I love and miss you lots too! Gros bisou ;0)
Well then, better get knitting ...
