Theme-a-licious Check In Obligation October

Obligation October went well for me,  I succeed in achieving my goals and finished the stitching on the children's ornaments.

First up is Christopher's ornament:

Then Rosie's (not the type of ornament I thought she would chose!) It needs some star buttons that I will add when I finish it.

Finally I can share the gift knitting I did, as they have arrived at their new homes.  Two of my Twitter friends Helen and Rachel have recently had babies so I made the new arrivals these rabbits from Debbie Bliss's Toy Knits book.

Now onto my plans for 'Nail it November'.  Heather's guidance for the month is:
'What's lying around that's so close to being finished you can't stand it anymore? Get to it and finish it!'
With that in mind my goal for this month is to finish Above the Clouds by Teresa Wentzler.  I completed the cross stitching back in June.  Time to tackle the miles of backstitch!  I also want to finish the ornaments and I have a couple of knitting projects that are very close to being finished - a cardigan for Rosie and a hat for myself that it would be good to get done.

The ornaments are just lovely - I think Rosie is growing up to be a smart young woman :-) And well done on the adorable bunnies too.

Rosie's ornament is going to be quite unique. Just love those adorable bunny rabbits, which will surely be well loved by the new babies!

Blessings!

It's nice to finish things but it's also nice to start new things:-) I like the rabbits, hand knitted toys are really special.

Oh, those rabbits are so sweet--such lucky little babies... Good for you for finishing your children's ornaments--they are both very special, Karoline :)

Wow, great ornaments for Rosie and Christopher. Clearly Rosie must be one clever cookie, and far advanced for her years :-)

Cute knitted rabbits too.

You had a great October! I've never knit toys as the assembly seems so fiddly. How did you find it?

Rosie made a great choice!
