Penguin baubles!

Hello :o)

I did say I might show some knitted projects occasionally, so here goes... these little penguin baubles are this year's teachers' gifts.


They're definitely not perfect, but they were fun to knit... not so much fun to sew up!  I'd forgotten just how much I hate stitching knitted things together!  The pattern was in Let's Knit magazine, and the only thing I did differently was adding ribbon loops instead of crochet chains... I'm yet to try crochet, but hopefully I'll have a go at that soon.

I've been wrapping presents all day, something else I'm not too keen on... ugh, it just seems never ending!  Next year I MUST be more organised!  Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening :o)

They're adorable, I wish I was a teacher at your kids' school!!! I'm in the same club with the present wrapping. Unless they're square boxes, I'd rather be eating mince pies than wrapping! Have a good 'un hun. xx
