Oh, I love the Rainbow Babies. I've made two but I want to make the whole set. I also think I'll be making one for a colleague's baby who's due on Boxing Day - in red and green for Christmas.

Many thanks Sharon, these seem reasonably easy although possibly need a bit of patience! Have added it to my pattern collection (rapidly growing!) and will report back when I've done one :)

Hi Linda,

Sorry you've had so little interest in the meet-up in Oxford. I was planning to be there but unfortunately the New Year is unlikely to be convenient for me as I start a new job in the Midlands in less than a month.

Teddies - I think I started with a "teddies for tragedies" teddy. I think it might be in the pattern book. The pattern is quite simple for beginners to soft toys. The Izzy dolls are very cute and have minimal shaping. You can play around with colours and textured yarn which may not be so good for squares. It's fun to give them accessories too like scarves and belts. And to give them hairstyles! I try to make each one unique.

Jumpers - Kathy's Cozy jumper is a good pattern to start with. It's basically either two T shapes sewn together or 4 rectangles (front, back and one folded into a tube for each sleeve). Again, have fun with the colours and the textures.

Above all, enjoy!

Thanks Susan, sorry we cross-posted x Your teddies sound lovely, and having a bit of a routine might suit me too, I think. So far, changing colours has kept me going, but there are only so many that are on offer.......

Thanks Elaine, I think I'll give the Izzy dolls a try ...they're also a good way of using up small quantities of colours, aren't they?

Shirley...I'm sorry, thought I had contacted everyone who lived within hailing distance of Oxford. Good to hear from you and I'll definitely put your name on the list! Thanks :)

Thanks Tom and Joan for your ideas too....I'm not going to be short of activity, am I? X

hi Linda M

Didn't know about this lunch but as I live in Northampton I could make it to Oxford so please put me on your invite list  for the new year. Shirley

My local hospice shop had really nice toys for 49p and I bought loads but they've just tripled the price. I have a bit of a backlog of toys though so I don't need any just now.

Re Toys ,I get them from my local Animal charity shop as I can only do plain knitting , I pick the light ones so I can put more in
