I've finished my Noro sweater recently. This is my first project made with Noro yarn and I'm very happy with the result. The yarn is absolutely lovely and easy to work with. I love these bright colours and quality of the wool itself. Because the wool is so beautiful and doesn't require a complicated pattern I decided to knit the sweater with raglan sleeve and make the simplest cables on the waist and lower part of the sleeves. This sweater is my favourite now in my wardrobe!
Jonathan is a tiny brown teddy bear cub.
He is a good-looking and stylish gentleman. Hi is crocheted with soft high quality brown alpaca and merino wool blend with 1.5 mm crochet hook and filled with soft polyester filling. His face and features are embroidered with dark brown DMC cotton threads. His eyes are onyx beads and his face is slightly shaded with light brown colour. He wears his fashion crocheted top hat and bow tie (removable) decorated with grey glass beads. Jonathan carries his umbrella hand crafted with linen fabric and decorated with gold glitter and black sequins.
He is a brave traveller and adventurer. Hi is crocheted with soft high quality white merino wool with 1.5 mm crochet hook and filled with soft polyester filling. Oliver’s face and features are embroidered with dark brown DMC cotton threads. His eyes are onyx beads and his face, legs, arms and body are slightly shaded with light brown colour. He wears his knitted comfy trousers and crocheted peaked cap in orange-red colour decorated with red glass beads and carries his light yellow rucksack and butterfly net. A tiny bear’s items can be put to the rucksack to help Oliver in his adventures.
This is my first pair of socks ever and the first finished project in 2012. I made it for my husband. It's a bit strange to have 2 different socks in one sock pair but I love the result. Like this yarn - it's bright, soft and easy to work with. Perhaps, I will buy another ball of this yarn and make a pair of socks for myself as well.
