Look into my eyes, seriously…..

“Eww, whose eyeballs have popped out on stalks?”

These quirky knitted eyeballs are very versatile. Why not sew them onto some deelyboppers, hang from the ceiling on elastic thread or attach to stalks and add some fear to your flowers! Pop them in party bags, add some catnip and turn them into a cat toy, the list is endless……..

They are knit in the round with simple shaping, so they will work up nice and quick.

A great project for learning to knit in the round and using up leftover yarn.

What the Butler Saw.. Knitted Maid

I have just published another free pattern on Ravelry.  Inspired by my trip to the cinema in the summer to see Despicable Me 2.  Which was possibly the funniest film I have seen in a number of years! (I laughed more than most of the children, not sure what that says about me).

After working my way through the amazing blog tutorial by ‘All about Ami’  I made a crochet minion and adapted it to make a French maids outfit, including frilly pants.  This inspired me to make a mini knitted version.

September Issue of Let's Knit is out now!

Betty

I was really thrilled to be asked to design a ‘Vintage’ style bonnet kit for this issue of Let’s Knit Magazine. The contemporary colour yarn makes this a perfect unisex bonnet. Knit in one piece, with I-cord ties, this really is a quick and simple knit. Just perfect for a baby shower gift! Feeling adventurous? Why not crochet a flower for the side of the bonnet, of swap the I-cord ties for ribbon.

Named after the beautiful model, how cute is Betty?

Also in this issue of the magazine is ‘Hayley’

Hayley is a knitted ring binder cover, customise your folders with this simple fair isle design worked in Stylecraft Life DK yarn. It is a great introduction to stranded colour work or ‘fair isle’.
