Teddy is finished and I’m so pleased with him ūüôā

He’s knit with Sirdar Touch yarn, which is unbelievably soft. He mades Ted so cuddly. He’s quite a big ted actually, especially as I only did the small size too!

The pattern is a Sirdar pattern, which you can buy as a downloadable PDF if you want to make your own.


I’m now making him a tank top from a ball of the new Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino Tonals yarn, an ideal way to see how this new yarn knits up I reckon.

Moo Moo

The Christmas knitting still isn’t quite finished, but I thought I would just share a picture of a softie that I made for my friend this week. It was her birthday yesterday and this is my present to her.


The pattern is a new Melly and Me pattern called Moo Moo that we are selling in the shop.


FO: Sheldon

He is the fiddliest toy I’ve ever knitted but worth it, because he’s so cute!

The pattern is designed by CID Hanscom Designs and I bought it in California a couple of years ago. The yarn is Frog Tree Alpaca that I bought at the same time.  Got loads of the yarn left, as Sheldon is quite tiny, so might weave something with the rest of it.

FO: Captain Jack Rabbit

I finally finished Cap’n Jack!

Isn’t he cute? ¬†I am so pleased with him. ¬†He was very straight forward to make. ¬†Just a quite a few pieces and I had to get the correct size eyes from America in the end because I couldn’t get any here in the UK.

If you want a copy of the pattern called Pirate Bunnies, you can buy one here

Meet Clucky…

She’s a Melly and Me pattern which I made last weekend and am rather pleased with myself. ¬†Sewing projects are always a bit daunting for me. ¬†Her tail keeps flopping because I should have used some stiffer iron-on stuff but I don’t care. ¬†It just adds to her uniqueness. ¬†I need to make a couple of babies which will sit in her wing pockets. ¬†Perhaps I’ll do those tomorrow. ¬†Because tomorrow is a bank holiday!!! ¬†Yay!!!

Meet Sally and Rosie

This is Sally Scarecrow and Rosie Ragdoll and they are Christmas presents for my “surrogate” nieces. ¬†Mum made Sally (on the left) and I made Rosie. I finished her last night. She took me a few weekends but I got there without any hiccups and I was quite pleased with myself. ¬†I am starting to feel a little more confident about sewing now… Just a little…

Meet Phoebe the elephant

Well I’ve been crafting away and not only am I knitting, I’ve been sewing again too!

Phoebe is a Melly and Me pattern and I made her using some fabric in Mum’s stash.

She was pretty easy to do – must be if I managed to make her!

The sparkly bolero that I’m knitting is nearly done. ¬†I’m just doing the cable trim, which is taking ages!

I also went to a craft evening at church last Friday and armed with a bundle of knitting needles and balls of yarn from the charity shop, I tried to teach people to knit.  I think people enjoyed themselves and I have at least one convert.  There are quite a few girls who knit at church now so a few of us might start meeting up to knit and crochet.  Should be fun!
