bertie bear

W›e are thrilled to introduce you to Bertie – the cutest, friendliest, stripiest bear you’re likely to meet!He’s such a cutie and will brighten up any nursery or playroom. Luckily, he doesn’t take too long to complete, as the legs, body and head are worked as one piece, with the arms and features added separately. We love his little Peter Pan collar and blue jeans!

your knits!

8LMW›ƥS[IV] FPEROIX›MW›E KMJX›JSV›'MRH]ŭW KVIEX›RMIGI Flower power I knitted this blanket for my niece and nephew’s second daughter, due in May. We can’t wait for her arrival! It’s a Sirdar pattern (4787) knitted in Caron Simply Soft in Lavender Blue. I have a tip for anyone thinking of making it: if I knitted it again, I wouldn’t slip the ribbed border stitches onto stitch holders, I would just add the border to the pattern and knit it altogether. Cindy Wells, Massachusetts, USA Lucy says It’s beautiful, Cindy.

I’m a member of a local community craft group and made these for our annual craft fair, where we raise funds for the group and local charities. Jean Lea, via email Lucy says How clever of you, Jean, and how lucky your chosen charities are.…
