    Woodland Yarn Bombing

    A while ago, through Twitter, the lovely Anne Clark asked me if I’d be interested in helping out with a yarn bombing in Belper, which is in the county of Derbyshire. Of course I said yes (complete no brainer!!). The yarn bombing was for ‘Woollen Woods’ and was part of Corridor Arts ‘Here and There’ art walk and also Belper Arts festival.

    Very Cute Knitted Animals

    Look at this gorgeous penguin knitting pattern, its sooooo cute!! He’s called Hopkins and its a pattern by Amanda Berry, which can be found on the Love Knitting website.   I decided to check out Amanda’s website for her other patterns and there are loads to choose from! Stripes The Penguin reminds me of a Wallace and Gromit character! Amanda also has a set of brilliant Christmas themed toys including this awesome robin Christmas tree decoration and Rene The Reindeer, LOVE! The patterns can also be purchased from Amanda’s website, which is where I copied the photos from!

    Seagull Love

    A while ago, J and I were lucky enough to be on the pre-Bestival boat party and I developed a very real attachment to Barry, the plastic seagull!                   Ever since then I have been wanting a seagull of my very own, and now I think I’ve found the answer in Nicky Fijalkowska’s knitted seagull pattern! It’s very cute, and I think he would replace plastic Barry nicely!
