At the request of my daughter, I designed and made a baby blanket for her friend who wanted the baby’s initials incorporated in the pattern. This then lead to me writing up and publishing the Hearts Baby Blanket pattern which included my design for the upper case alphabet. I then decided to come up with a design for the lower case alphabet and I am pleased to offer the charts for both alphabets here: Alphabet – Upper and Lower Case
The pattern for this Hearts Baby Blanket can be found in my Etsy and Ravelry on line shops, see side bar to the right of this post.
On checking my Ravelry patterns – http://www.ravelry.com/designers/sylvia-leake – I realised I’d managed to design, knit, test knit, photograph, write up and publish 15 new knitting patterns last year! Starting with ‘A Badger Blanket’ at the beginning of the year, which was actually designed and made at the end of 2016. So here’s the round up:

Reindeer Baby Hat (to match my Reindeer Booties pattern designed in 2012!)
Winter Robin Hat (Baby to Adult sizes)
Textured Diamonds Cowl
This cute Snowman Christmas Jumper knitting pattern is now available in my online shops. The jumper pattern includes sizes for babies and toddlers up to 48 months. The smaller sizes would make a lovely set with my Snowman Booties and Snowman Baby Hat patterns.
The Knitter has focussed her attention on all things Christmassy. As a result of this a pair of woolly snowman booties have appeared. I am certain that they will make good company this Christmas, however, I am upset that The Knitter could not provide me with a cat-sized version, my paws are getting a bit nippy…
You can purchase your copy of the pattern on any of The Knitters websites…Happy Knitting!
Nothing is safe from Basil!
Basil seems fairly shocked at my latest creation, unless he is trying to replicate the expression of the owl, I’ll never know. They do look quite alike though, don’t they?
I think I look much more handsome than “The Knitter’s” creation
- The hat and bootie set!
That knitter is designing yet another creation. However, whilst enjoying my nice afternoon cat nap I was rudely awoken by the sight of dog booties! To let her know what I thought of this I showed my boredom. I’m hoping for a nice pair of cat booties to join them, who would want DOGS?!
*yawn* I've had enough of this, dogs?! Its disgraceful.
