Little bit of collaboration

The Bristol Knitivist were out in force a few sunday's ago. We decked GF Bridge with knitty things that have a sunshine or camoflage theme

I contributed a camo rail cosy topped of with camo pom poms and a rail cosy with natural camo butterflies (although as Twee as Volk pointed out, these actually look more like squid that butterflies!)

And here are some of the other fabbo knitty bits from the other knitivists

I go passed the bridge every Monday after choir praccy and quite a few peices are still there which is ruddy marvelous

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away....

...It is a period of civil war. Rebel spaceships, striking from a hidden base, have won their first victory against the evil Galactic Crochet Empire. 
During the battle, Nanna D managed to steal secret patterns to the Empire's ultimate weapon, a Yoda Hat and an R2D2 Hat, both with enough power to destroy an entire planet. 
Pursued by the Empire's sinister agents, Nanna D races home aboard her sofa, custodian of the stolen patterns that can save her people and restore freedom to the galaxy.... 

Pressies and Penguins

I've had to put in a lot of extra time at work recently, which has meant this poor ol' blog has been neglected some what. But those Birthday's keep on coming and I just keep on Knitting so I managed to duck out of work on time today and have spent a good couple of hours going through pics of what I've made since August.

Here's a few of the things I've made for chums and Family.

Marion got a tortoise

Daniel Got a Barca Hat and Fingerless gloves

Mat got a Swans Hat and Fingerless gloves

Dad gets a hat and a beard

Lizzy gets a Mama and Bubby penguin (although looks like Evan has claimed them so will have to give her something else!)

Siany gets a headband, fingerless mitts and beard
