Rainbow Girls and tour de fleece

Been taking part in the Tour de Fleece over on Ravelry to coincide with the Tour de France
The fleece was the blue bag I got from Woolfest, its coming out at 20 WPI, it will probably be a shawl when its all spun.
I also made these wee dolls for the last day of Sunday school for me class of 3-5 yr olds. They all loved them, some were even named before church had finished.

The patterns Rainbow babies, a free pattern from Jean Greenhowes site, I adapted it to add a skirt, made the heads smaller and added hair.

Been busy knitting , I've nearly finished my 5th sweater of the year, just got to sew on buttons, and am now busy knitting baby stuff as my niece is having a baby in september.
