Ravellinc Games 2012

On knitters set themselves a challenge or series of challenges to complete while the olympic games are taking place. This could be finishing projects that have been half done for months or starting something new or trying a different technique.

I set myself the challenge of completing my night owl, he has been  in a bag since before Christmas and just needed his claws and eyes knitting and tonight I finally sewed him up.

I also wanted to complete a new project. I downloaded the clown teddy pattern from Alan Darts website and started knitting :)
I plan to make another of these for a Christmas present. You may remember the big pile of fluffy wool in my stash photos! lol, It is now nearly half the size so I am slowly making progress with the stash busting.

He is quite large and ever so cuddly and has been named Freddy the Teddy.

Hopefully tomorrow I will also have completed my Red Riding Hood as I have until the end of the closing ceremony........
