New Year resolution - update on Baglady pledge

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_M2qHFyjWJow/TQpm093JLLI/AAAAAAAAAgQ/KBAcsOS52xo/s1600/baglady.jpgSo... I pledged (along with my daughter) to reuse and make do as much as we can. Below are our creations....


Open mittens, knitted from wool lying around in a bag
Aside the mittens, which didn't take long for me to knit as I doubled the yarn and used big needles, we also made a telescope out of a kitchen towel roll and two pairs of binoculars, one for Michela (two toilet rolls joined and with a piece of string to hang around her neck and two mini crackers' rolls joined and with a piece of string for her bear). A tube belonging to some used-up wrapping paper made a great cock horse, which Michela decorated with collage motifs and topped with an old sock to make the head. They don't look great but hours of play so far from these scraps!
