I finally worked out that if I used markers on my knitting I could keep better track of the pattern. (Boy am I slow?) So now I am on the home straight with this one. I hope I will have enough wool left over to knit a hat as well. Then I should be able to return to my winter sweater.
But, I have just bought Julie's new small patterns from her shop
My grand daughter Jasmine just loves soft toys. She has a mountain in her room of these but I know she would love some more. Luckily, (unluckily) I don't have the right wool for the mice so it will just have to be the bears.
My TAST challenge piece for this month is completed. I am only using running stitch and it's variations for this one.
I decided to use woodland and water spirits as my inspiration for this series. This one is based on Resulka the Vilia. (My Resulka isn't nearly as beautiful as the one in the video, I am trying to make her other worldly.)
And, on a more prosaic note, I'm still finishing pot holders
Stitch markers are much more useful than I first realised!

Tey are great shen you have a repeat pattern. The other great thing is the lifeline which is dental floss you can thread through your stitching and then if you have do unpull a section there are all you stitches ready.
