Knit one,

I just realised I haven't shown you my Autumn brooch. I try to come up with something different for eash season and these are all misty, mellow and Autumnal. I have used up some more tapestry wool knitting fairisle squares and felting them with a quick trip through the machine.These are stuffed and embellished and with the addition of a brooch pin they are ready to adorn a jumper, jacket, or bag. I like these as they are using up wool which otherwise would be languishing somewhat and I always enjoy matching up buttons and ribbons. I will need to make more of these before a fair on the 15th- but that is no hardship! I think the Winter brooches will be crochet....I shall have fun working out what sparkley jewels I can squeeze onto those.

fantastic idea! How's the house coping having a GTP person in it??

What a busy bee! Lovely brooches, and a great way to use up all those odd bits and pieces of yarn.
