All apart from the toys and one hat are from designers who are participating again this year.
Let's take a look at those finished objects....
The next is Riles by Talitha Kuomi. This one was a gift for my son's before- and after-school childminder. No fault of the pattern but unfortunately she found the wool I used a bit itchy on her forehead, but she likes the hat so much that she just wore a thin fleece hat underneath it to keep it off her skin and keep her head extra-cosy.
The next pattern was a fun one, of which I made two. Light Saber by Emily Ringelman is one of the more unusual things I've knitted, and I had to make two, one for each of my boys. They still play with them a year on!
All of these designers are taking part in the GAL again this year, so if any of these projects take your fancy, you can make them as part of the GAL again this year.
