Elfy Game 1

This is the first version of ‘Elfy Game’, to go with the story ‘The mushroom under the Elf’.

Size: 28″ X 37″

To play: go down on a mushroom leg, up on a head and up on a sun ray, + some rules to be added by the kid for extra fun (like fuzzy squares and white dots).

Apart for plating it with Hubby (every night before bed as the game was progressing) I played it with 2 nine years old – first on a table, then they drugged me for another game on the floor + wanted another one! One of them read the story aloud before we played – still needs work + a lot of photos before it’s done… crawling my way on it, wish it went faster (as in waiving my magic wand and Ta Da – it’s done! 🙂

The second version of the knit game is done already, and hope to post it soon.

Baby Blankets

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The theme of simplicity ans child like naivety is continuing in my art, and strongly. Recently I am working on baby blankets, and there are so many patterns I want to do, that I don’t want to take the time out to sleep or eat (or refine the instructions so I can put them up). They are so simple to do, that I truly hope some beginners will try them too.

Another amazing thing about these patterns is that the same chart can be made into a Baby blanket (top picture, 30″x32″, needles #15US/9mm ), or a stroller blanket (see pastel version, 20″x23″, needles #7US).

There is something about Baby blankets that just tugs on the heart strings. They are like prayers shawls – as we put our best wishes in for the baby, and take so much care that the yarn will be soft and that there will be no knots in it.

This pattern is now available on etsy http://www.etsy.com/listing/97513843/you-are-my-sunshine-pdf-pattern-for-baby and on ravelry.
