Babies and Nurseries

Here is one of a series of new projects I am working on at the moment.  A while ago I produced some hand knitted Baby Blankets made up of individually designed squares showing rabbits, footballers, stars, hearts, letters, trains, teddy bears, boats, butterflies and on and on, and now I am making these super cushions using squares I had made and not used and the yarn which I have left.

The boucle yarn is a cotton and linen mix and the second yarn (seen here on the edging of the A square and for the letter itself) is a mix of hand dyed wool and bamboo.  The cushions measure about 16" square and have feather filled pads, and will vary somewhat according to the yarn I have left.

They will be on show at The Hand-Crafted Home Fair on 26 May at Aldwincle Village Hall (see previous post) with lots of other super products and, incidentally, if anyone is interested in a stall they are going rapidly and so don't leave it too late to book.  (Go to for booking details.)

Anyway, here is the back of the cushion which is made up of a mix of all the colours on the front!

And here is one of the Baby Blankets which began it all + Jake of course!
