Squares within squares

This is an experiment with large (33 cm) diagonal knitted squares using left over wool (4 ply and 5 ply). Two colours have been knitted in each striped section to give a variegated textured effect. Not sure where to take this next as a lot more squares required to make this into a bed rug, and have lost the inspiration for knitting more squares at present.

Baby gifts

Some recent baby gifts - Humpty Dumpty is about 23cm seated (9 inches) and the little Koala is about 15cm (6 inches)
