I am fairly happy with her, althought she is supposed to have seperate fingers sewn on to her mittens. but due to my poor sewing skills and lack of patience, i decided to leave the fingers. I got the pattern from simply knitting magazine and it is by alan dart, of course i may have to make another one when i have finished her, as whilemina is not as good as i had hoped!I hope that you like her! I need to get Whilemina finished as i have a secret pal swap which i have got to get on with! I am so excited about doing this as it is my first secret pal swap and I hope my secret pals will like there packages!
so all i have to do to whilemina is give her some hair! in the magazine she has purple hair, but i may go for green! sew her hat on and sew up her cauldron!
my other projects that i am trying to get finished is a cross stitched witch , witch i will take a photo of when it is done1 Today i may start on some more yuletide Gnomes!

I think it looks more like a cake now!
All that is left to do now is to add the beaks and little claws on the chicks.

Anyway, You are supposed to make theese from chopsticks or wooden dowels, well after hunting everywhere for chopstiks, and figuring out that I couldn't carry a 6ft wooden dowel with my food shopping with out injuring myself or some innocent member of the public, I had a brain wave that pencils would work. I had some pencils lying around, so i sanded the paint off them and shaved them down to the width I wanted them( these are 6.5mm thick) I used a pencil sharpener to make the other end pointy and then I painted them ( their standing in blue tack drying after varnishing), then I used clear nail polish to give them a coat of varnish and to protect the paint from chipping and hey presto! I also made some 6.5mm circular knitting needles as well, I thought i had taken a pic of them, but i havn't so I will post them tommorow!
