Tiny Teddies and New Toys

The year is fast going, September already and what a year it has been for me. Two new books on the shelves and three more books on the way to being written, not to mention the toys and projects I have designed for varoius magazines along the way. My "20 to Make Tiny Teddies all dressed up " continues to be ever popular which is fantastic, I am so happy that folks love making the bears for themselves. I have lots of letters asking for help in making up the head so have decided to write a detailed instruction and put it on my web site to help every one . Maybe I can even add a few photos to make it even clearer.
New patterns are about to appear on the patterns page, that is being taken care of by the guy who made my website for me, it is just finding enough time in the day to do everything I want. I am so thrilled that my toys in Let's Knit and Knit Today are so loved, it makes all the hard work and hours involved so worthwhile. Thankyou to everyone who makes them !
I love to see pictures of what you have made, keep right on sending them to me.
Wishing you all a wonderful Auntum, and HAPPY KNITTING too.

Spring is around the corner !

My ever increasing pile of projects is in need of a spring clean so I am going be selling all my designer sample that have been photographed for numerous magazines. There are some beautiful toys as well as socks, hats, gloves to mention but a few. I will post pictures and prices of what is available on my web site. Just finishing off my third book, hoping too that it will be as popular as my little teddy bears !! More very fun toys to come in Lets Knit very soon, so do watch out for them. It will be so nice to have some warm spring sunshine, makes everything look better. Meantime, lots more knitting to do !!
I have had some gorgeous pictures of work you have done, especially of Shirley bear. Keep sending the pictures, I love to see them.
Happy Knitting to one and all, Val
