some new work in the sunshine

Today has been the long awaited first day of summer - it was even warm enough to go outside with just a t-shirt on! I also grabbed the chance to take a few pictures of some of my work in the garden, they always look better in natural light.

My new coffee pot cover has been more successful than my last tea cosy - the number of stitches and rows was a bit excessive and it didn't felt down to the size I wanted. However as we used to be told at college when we presented particularly bad work - it was a 'magnificent failure'.

I turned it on its head and made it into a bowl instead - it will be perfect for displaying my baby Baboo bunnies at any shows I'm doing this year. It also inspired me to try out another few knitted pots.

I suppose that's half the fun when you create your own patterns and designs - you never really know what you will get till you have finally finished the piece.

Getting started


this is my first posting - hopefully one of many.

How long is a piece of wool?....this kind of sums me up at the moment, I have endless ideas of new things to make and the never ending piece of wool represents that.

Hopefully my blog will record taking my craft from a hobby to a business, whilst always keeping it a passion.

Please visit my web site - for more information about me and pictures of the things I have made so far. I'm in the process of putting together a new 'My Baboo' web site with links to Etsy where you will be able to purchase my work on-line.

Please leave comments - your feedback is appreciated and I will always try and respond.

Thanks for taking the time to look, and I hope to see you back soon.
