Mother's Day posy

I finished the posy brooch, which I have knitted for my mother on Mother's Day (which, in Germany, is celebrated on the second Sunday in May)

It is quite pretty, although it was a bit fiddly to make, and it took me ages to gather the energy and patience to finish it off!

The pattern is available free and can be found here.

April Stash Bust

Thanks to Crafty Green Poet I have come across the April Stash Bust.

For somebody who has a whole wardrobe full of yarn stash, a stash bust sounds like a great idea!

Only last week did I send my sock yarn remnants (see above) to a fellow knitter in Ravelry's p/hop group

Plumbum is going to make this blanket and pledges to donate money to Medecins Sans Fontieres (Doctors Without Borders) for every batch of sock remnants she receives for her project.

Rabbitty comfort blankets

I finished four of these comfort blankets. They are knitted from double strands of DK cotton mix.

Although I have made them in more unusual colours in the past I tend to prefer them in the traditional baby blue and pink. Call me old-fashioned ...

Colour Block blanket

I finished Lion brand's Colour Block blanket last night, and I am quite pleased with the outcome.

It's already parceled up, ready to be sent off to Algerian Action tomorrow, together with three jumpers and some sweets for the Eid project 2010. 

Needless to say, I have already started another project - but that's for another day ...
