So, I was walking around town looking around the shops and i walked into WHsmith to get a copy of Let's Knit, but unfortunately I discovered the next issue isn't even out yet! Annoying. But I didn't leave empty handed :)  I was just about to leave until i saw this

Adorable Toys - sold at WHSmith

Included with the magazine was a knit kit - see below for picture. Pretty colours don't you think?

My one negative about the whole thing is the kit that the patterns in the magazine only include a few projects which include the kit...What's the point i ask you?  But still the toys in the magazine are adorable and I am very tempted to knit one for my best  friend's baby girl.  Are toys easy to make?  Reading the patterns, it seems easy but if anyone can offer me any advice about knitting toys, it would be most appreciated!

Apart from that, knitting wise for me i'm not really knitting much at the moment...Currently i am in the process of knitting a jumper for my baby niece. I found a really cute jumper from Debbie Bliss' Baby Knits for Beginners Boat Neck Sweater.  So far i've only just knitted the gauge swatch....have yet to measure it and wash/block it...hope i do it all right. 

Anyway that's all. Until next time

A Doggie Knit Pattern i found

Knitted Staffie

I love when I get something off my facebook newsfeed that involves knitting and/or knitting related subjects.  And the latest knit updated from these knitting pages i've liked posted this, so i thought i would share it with you all. Sadly the pattern's not free, but whats a couple of pounds if you really want to knit this, right?

Thought this might be nice for all Staffie lovers or all dog lovers anyway - I am one :) Happy Knitting
