Teatime links

Gingerbread

Christmas has been a bit of a whirlwind (is it ever anything else?), so it’s been lovely the last couple of days to take a moment for a cup of tea, a biscuit and some quiet time online. Here’s what’s been catching my eye recently…

Snuggly teddy by Sirdar. I’m not usually a fan of fun fur, but ohmygosh their new Touch yarn is so soft! And you’re never too old for a teddy bear, right?

Beautiful colourwork mittens by JennyPenny on Ravelry. Super cosy and stunning to look at too. Someday I’ll have the confidence to try a Fair Isle pattern this intricate.

Hello Kitty Crochet book by Mei Li Lee. Hook an amigurumi version of the feline icon to celebrate her 40th birthday.

Scrumptious Selkino yarn. A merino/silk blend hand-dyed by the wonderful Skein Queen. Drool.

Handmade gifts. A heartwarming story from the US about a knitter who donates all her projects to good causes.

Aimee Ray’s cute and quirky blog. Little Dear is packed with embroidery inspiration, and if you’re new to stitching her easy-to-follow tutorials will get you started.
