Have been meaning to share these photos for a while of a lovely cute knitted teddy from a Marie Wallin pattern. I have already thought about knitting another one but changing the sweater design slightly to make him look Norwegian.
I had the fun of going to the marvellous exhibition about Kaffe Fassett at the Museum of Fashion and Textile Design in Bermondsey in London. It was at the same time inspiring and scary. How can one man produce such a wealth of amazing stuff? It gave me a lot to think about and of course covered both my loves – knitting and patchwork. By the way the museum cafe was really good too and worth a visit even when the exhibition isn’t on.
Check out the burrabears site for some wonderful recycling of shetland and fairisle knitting. I so want one.
