A little cuddly toy!

I finished the toy I mentioned earlier. Actually, I finished two toys. The first one ended up scratchy, because apparently I suck at spinning soft yarn. Oh well. A liked it anyway, but I still wanted to make her a softer, cuddlier one.

 

For the second one I used the softest yarn I had, and also made a little blanket for it to hold, since I remembered my little brother used to love tickling his cheek with a soft cloth when he was a baby.

Attention grabber necklace

 

Made this ridiculously bright and colourful necklace for A to stare at and grab while nursing. She’s started scratching me, so hopefully this will be more interesting.

Shamelessly copied from my rav post

I have started making a toy!

Well, I have started to spin the yarn to knit a very simple toy. Because I had a pile of soft fiber, and more time than I know what to do with (hahahahahahaha)

Thought She-Ra would be an appropriate background for princess yarn :D





This toy-making thingie is big, because I hate knitting toys. But I want A to have a little stuffie from me in her bed, so that's exactly what I'm going to make: Stuffies by Ysolda Teague. I'm going for the bunny version, long ears are cute.
