Noro Log Cabin Throw

I used four different colourways of Noro Taiyo (a gorgeous blend of cotton and silk) to create this soft and colourful log cabin throw. I used size 5.5mm circular needles.

So many different colours blending in together.

I am quite happy with the result! I have been working on this one on and off in between projects for a few months now and it is finally finished (also I ran out of wool).

Teddy Cushion

I made a teddy bear cushion for my sons wicker chair using the pattern for a washcloth by by Elaine Fitzpatrick from Down Cloverlane.

Here is the pattern for the teddy washcloth. I basically created two of these, I made it a bit longer and added some white colour work up the top for interest. then sewed them together with stuffing in the middle and hey presto! a tiny cute teddy cushion.
