Up to my Yarnpits


I am glad you have been enjoying Mr Knitting Image’s posts,  he has done a great job of keeping my blog up to date whilst I have been buried upto my yarnpits in commissions.  This is most definitely my busiest time of year,  I am currently working on Halloween and Christmas,  yes I said it, Christmas!

The house is filled with yarn, the post man is looking more and more amused every time I see him.  In fact this week he asked what I do for a living.  His response was to giggle and ask, ‘really?’

I am bursting to share my recently completed projects with you.  I always want to post pictures of my creations as soon as they are finished and say, ‘look what I made’.  Let’s just say patience is a virtue with which I was not blessed.  Odd really considering the hours I devote to watching my creations grow from yarn and needles.

But here is something I can share today,  Bunny Hop

Featured in Simply Knitting Magazine, issue 212. These cute little slippers are really quick and easy to make and will delight any small child (and large ones too).  They are worked in Peter Pan, Merino Baby DK, in garter stitch and could easily be adapted to fit larger feet by lengthening the sole.  The pattern is written for age 6-18 months.


You can download issue 121 of Simply Knitting magazine here and cast on straight away.  I would just love to see your finished creations on my Facebook page.

Knitted Sewing Accessories, Something has to make sewing up fun!

I know most of us knitters are less than enthusiastic when it comes to sewing,  but sadly most knits require a little sewing.  I was thrilled when Simply Knitting asked me to design some pretty sewing accessories for knitters.  I was really really really pleased when my copy of the magazine arrived.  My designs had become a self-contained pattern leaflet to accompany the cute free gift,  a tape measure in a tin.

I used some left over sock yarn for this set,  it gave me some interesting colour whilst keeping it simple.

Staying with the keeping organised theme,  I have also designed some hanging baskets.  These are also featured in issue 117 Simply Knitting.  The baskets each take one ball of Rowan All Seasons Chunky.
