This week I've made four teddy puppets - using that bobbly wool that seems to be a bit slow to knit up. So I'm happy that I've finished these two balls that were in my stash - one with multi-coloured flecks and one with yellow/peach/pink flecks. They're done with, and I won't buy any more. Somehow the bobbles always seem to finish up at the back of the work anyway, and I try to pull them through so that the interest is on the right side.
This brings the current puppet count to 84.
I've also been making a few little flower hairslides to tuck inside little bags or purses. I'm a relative novice at crochet and to begin with I was rather slow, but the more I make, the quicker it gets!
These were inspired by other bloggers - namely Chalky and Attic24. This is a very good way of using up small scraps of wool. I never throw away anything but the tiniest scraps - I save them all in a bag and they come in useful for faces or other small embellishments. What do you use your scraps for?
