Meet Posey the pincushion!
This is not a fresh FO, but rather one from just before Christmas, I made three all together, two two tier ones as gifts for a couple of friends I had just taught to knit, and this one for my greedy self. I added the little tie on bit to keep some of my stitch markers handy as I always find it frustrating to dig around for them in the bottom of the bag I keep my circular needles in.
It was a quick knit, sewing the tiers together was a bit of a pain and I actually managed to break a needle by trying to bash it through, but it was worth it as they turned out soo cute and used up some yarn scraps. I found I had to be careful when stuffing them as one of them was stuffed too tight, and I was not the best at sewing the yarn around to created the petals either but I am still pleased with the end result.
I don't knit all that much any more, unless I find a must-have pattern or yarn, so once I've shown a couple of bits I've done over the past few months I can't imagine this will be a regular feature here, but I am developing a bit of an embroidery bug!
