Knitted Layout!

Yeah, I know, not quite a knitted layout but a layout with 'knitted ribbon' and knitted jumpers...

I love hand knitted clothes.  I can't knit though and now I am grown up no one offers to knit for you!  I've heard more than one Grandmother say 'it's fine when they are little because the knitting grows fast'


This layout is of me and my brother in the 80's wearing jumpers that Nanny had knitted for us.  I'm not certain but I probably inherited the blue jumper when he had grown out of it... do kids still do that these days?!

I cut in to the lovely knitted ribbon.  I didn't want to use it because it is so nice.  I've done that with papers in the past and by the time I do make the big jump and use them I always wonder why I didn't use them when I bought them...  when will I learn! 

I used up some left over rub-ons.  A 'c' and an 'i' minus it's dot make up the 'a' and a 'l' for a '1'
What do you do with your left over alphabets?  I'd love to know...

And a generous sprinkling of yummy buttons completes the layout.  They are the exact colours of the knit and sew ribbons so work perfectly together, and I had so many interesting shapes in my selection.

Join us at Crafty Ribbons Challenge for Anything Goes with Ribbon.

I'm also playing at:
Simon Says - bit of green (yummy buttons!)
Creative Inspirations Paint - Anything Goes
Creative Card Crew - ribbon
Paper playtime - anything goes
Crafty Boots - old-new-borrowed-blue old photo, new ribbon, blue buttons (nothing borrowed as I don't know anyone who lends craft supplies!!!)

Thanks for stopping by!
