Farmyard in action!, originally uploaded by Annaelizc.

Realised I had not yet posted a pic of the Alan Dart Farm animals complete so had to do this first before starting my NaBloPoMo!

Here they are the last time Boo was playing with them, there are more cows in the cowshed and another horse in the stables which you can’t see on the piccy. There are some chickens and a duck missing! Must be in their room somewhere.

I am halfway through another sheep but haven’t done any of it in a while.

Also Boo has requested a black duck as there are black ducks at the farm we visit and he wants one for his farm.

Handmade Stitch Markers, originally uploaded by Annaelizc.

I’m so pleased with these! They took seconds to make from some bits and pieces in my sewing box. I just made them quick as I needed them for a pattern I was knitting.

Knitting needle Roll, originally uploaded by Annaelizc.

I desperately needed a knitting needle roll. I had a HUGE bag of needles which my mum gave to me (thank u 🙂 ), some were marked with imperial sizes, some where metric and some were US. Therefore everytime I wanted a different size needle I was searching through the bag for ages. So, despite feeling ill (Moos germs) I decided to make an extremely quick/rough attempt at one. The sewing is awful! I’m not very good on a sewing machine at the best of times but today I was more than awful. I wasn’t too bothered about how it looked as long as a) it sorted my needles out and b) it was done super quick so I could lie back down!

It has room for long needles/short needles/dpns/crochet hooks (and my circular needles fit in as well but have not put them in yet.

Two Left Feet! , originally uploaded by Annaelizc.

Yes I know they are both left feet! I started these Mary Jane Bootees and thought the first one looked a bit small so I tried them again on needles one size up, although they do not look a lot different in the photo I am a lot happier with the slightly bigger one!

I am going to make another style of bootee as well for the same baby and decorate a box to put them in.

WIP Golf Club Cover, originally uploaded by Annaelizc.

My Current WIP is a set of Golf club covers for Mr W.

The pattern I have is from Ravelry here, however he doesn’t want the symbols, he wants a ‘Wolves’ badge as in the Wolverhampton Wanderers football logo like this (Just the black wolves head not th border):

Go to fullsize image

Not sure if it achievable yet as the pattern is for symbols done in ‘duplicate stitch’ and I have never attempted intarsia? So will have to see! Any tips?

This morning when we got up my eldest toddler announced his Teddy bed was poorly and needed a bed (and he needed one immediately)!

 So I decided to put to good use some squares I knitted a few years ago. They were for a huge throw from one of those partwork things you collect. I didn’t finish it as I lost interest in it when I worked out how much it was going to cost!!

We used a shoebox for the bed (do intend to get him a real bed when I see one) and made a pillow from a baby sheet and stuffed with toy stuffing. It has kept him occupied all morning!

Project:Make Ted a Bed! by you.
