Mystery Knit Along

A couple of years ago I took part in a mystery knitalong on Ravelry to knit a mystery toy. Well, to be accurate I started it, I didn't really get along with knitting in the round with aran yarn, so I gave up when it got too difficult.
Then I saw in my side bar that Fuzzy Mittens was running one this year. I love Fuzzy Mitten patterns. I knit her bunnies. So cute in their little hoodies.

I've also knitted a little teddy bear from one of her patterns - more are due to arrive soon!

So I have paid a very reasonable fee for the pattern - £1.70 and I eagerly sat and knitted the first part on Friday evening, whilst I waited for Pickle-Lily's leotard to finish in the washing machine, so I could hang it up to dry ready for Saturday morning. A new part of the pattern will be published every Friday for six weeks in total, and I'm really looking forward to knitting it.
Part 1 - part of a garment!?
I've also made some more felt birdhouses which I am very pleased with.

This week I am joining in with Wendy and Handmade Monday, so why not go on a blog hop and see what everyone else is up to?

Like the colours of the mystery make. I wonder what it will turn out to be? Your felt birdhouses look lovely displayed on your tree :)

I am not surprised that you joined in with this knitalong. It is not too large a project and the end result will no doubt be very cute. I look forward to seeing how it turns out. :)

The rabbits are lovely. I think because their ears are so big. Interested to see what your other knit is. I might have to go and look on ravelry.

A mystery knit along sounds like a very intersting idea. No idea what it could be so far, but looking forward to finding out.

It's amazing all the things you learn here. Hope your mystery knit eventually reveals itself. The colours are lovely together. The birdhouses are just right for Spring!
