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


  1. Looks like a great mag, well done on finding it! I do agree those 'kits' are annoying sometimes when they give so few patterns for you to use them for. What I tend to do is just save the yarn, and use it for other projects like mug hugs etc. They work quite well!

    Can't wait to see how your jumper turns out, I have that book and when I showed it to my niece she just wanted everything. Lol xx

    1. I never even tried knitting these - well at least not day :) The yarn is still sitting at the bottom of my knitting bag waiting to be used. It will be, with any luck lol
