Sloths and Challenges

Naomi doesn't just like snarky quotations from cult TV shows, she's also rather partial to sloths, so when I saw a pattern for a knitted sloth I knew I had to make her one.


The pattern is from Fiona Goble, and it's knitted mostly in King Cole Tinsel.
Also Sunday was reveal day for the Monthly Challenge. This month we had a pattern from La Contesse et le Point de Croix. I stitched mine on some orphan blue linen, and made it up into a small patchwork cushion.

Ha--that sloth just makes me smile :) I just saw a television program on them the other day--they are the funniest creatures.

Love your little pillow--beautifully finished, Christine!

Oh dear Christine I think you may have started something with the sloth. my grandaughter is known as the sloth by her big brother so I think it might be added to my list. She does love them too.
Nice finish on the patchwork cushion , I did mean to join in but January has passed me by in a flash. Hope all is well with you..

Your sloth is awesome! I love the look of that 'fuzzy' yarn, although I don't enjoy working with it a lot.

Gorgeous Sloth. We sell the Jellycat sloths but they are not as nice as a handmade one!

Nice finish for the Needlecraft Haven design.

your sloth is adorable! Did you sew his paws together so he'd hold on to the branch?

You've made a great selection of craft work since the New Year. The patchwork cushion is an ideal setting for your stitching. The sloth is a good finish.
