Beetle, Budgie & Brand New Stock

I had a bit of a rush job yesterday - a beetle to be made inthe space of 36 hours. Yikes! After looking up the only pattern I had, I rejected that as being pretty rubbish and got out the big book of Insects that I inherited from my mother to use as reference.  So this is based on a cockchafer of some sort - I can't replicate the irridescence unfortunately!
I also finished the final budgie -I think that's got them out of my system for the time being!
There will be three knitted dog sets in my shop later today - this brindle lurcher,
The teeny-tiny one,
and this little girl. There will also be this purse:
It's good to be able to add some new stock - my shop has been a bit neglected of late!

Wow! You have been busy. You could try some angelina fibre with your yarn when you knit another beetle. :) xoxo
