WOYWW #206 - a bug, a bunny and a sheep

Hello. Today is Wednesday (maybe not here but somewhere in the world) and that means I am joining in with WOYWW, or What's on Your Workdesk, Wednesday.

So, my Workdesk has been abandoned and I am instead using my lovely crochet-covered Pouffe in front of the TV. On my Pouffe is a ladybird or lady bug as it is called here, which I am knitting because Smallest has been invited to a Bug party and they have asked for no presents (instead they want us to donate to a food drive. What a lovely thought). I thought if I knit her a little something then it isn't like we bought anything and it is the theme of the party. I have been knitting like mad today because I thought the party was this Sunday, but it is a week on Sunday so I can slow down now.

There is a Comforter Bunny I made for a friends baby who is due in 11 weeks. I need to make another one with a smaller head so there are two new balls of wool to try.

Also I am crocheting a Sleepy Sheep with some lovely soft wool I bought for the comforter originally. I have made one of these before. This could also be for the baby, I haven't decided yet.

That's all for me this week. I am sorry if you visited me previously and I didn't get back to you. I try and spend the majority of the day (Wednesday) blog hopping and always try to visit everyone who leaves a comment. some people comment much later in the week and those are the ones I find it difficult to get back to. Sorry, I will try harder. I have two boys at home this Wednesday, one poorly and one just not at school so that means I will either be busy playing or they will play with each order and let me have some time!!!

That's going to one happy little baby with all those knitted gifts, and I like the theme and intentions of the little girls party, great idea! You're 105 this week (back in the swing of things, lol).

I really enjoyed reading your post. My Mother used to knit all the time, she doesn't any more, but all our jumpers were hand made, and lasted for years. You can tell, some that she had knitted for me, were passed down and my children wore them. She also knitted animals, I can remember having a giraffe, a kangaroo,a fox- who had an amazing red tailcoat on-, a lovely soft grey bunny, a black & white cat- thanks for reminding me of my childhood! Have a great week, Hugs Shaz #85 xxx

What a fab idea behind the Ladybird party! That gave me the warm fuzzier reading about that. I'm sure the birthday girl will love the knitted ladybird though, fab idea.
And guess what, I was wrong...it's a Sparrowhawk! What a dunce I am :-)

A bug party sounds fun! What a good idea not to have presents - it sometimes becomes a competition! Showed my friend your pouffe yesterday - she was very impressed! Chris145
