A few of my knitting patterns are being offered half price on Love Knitting to celebrate Independent Designers around the world who sell their patterns through Love Knitting Limited.  The offers are for this month only, the patterns will then return to their usual price.

Fair Isle/Stranded knitting

I’ve been doing a lot of Fair Isle (stranded) knitting recently and have come up with the following designs.  The written patterns include instructions for knitting flat on two needles with a seam at the back and knitting in the round on a circular needle with no seaming necessary.  The patterns can be found in my online shops – see sidebar.

Fair Isle Chicks on an Egg Cosy

On a whim yesterday I decided to use an old Fair Isle pattern from my machine knitting days to make a hand knit egg cosy!  I wrote up the pattern today and would like to share it with you here Fair Isle Chicks Egg Cosy

P1030187

These cute Fair Isle Chicks look gorgeous decorating an egg cosy for your Easter breakfast table, however they could also be used on any number of projects – hats, mittens, scarves and so on.

You could also use the cosy to cover chocolate eggs for the children as an Easter surprise!

The cosy is an easy and quick knit, an ideal first Fair Isle project, why not make more than one using different colour combinations.

Frosty Mornings

Just wanted to share some of my early morning photos from the last week or so.  They feature The Hoot Family and The Chicks looking cute in the frost and, on one occasion, the snow!

Raindrops and a knitted chick

The rain stopped for a while, which provided a photo opportunity and some fun for one of the little chicks!

Birdie Baubles

I’ve enjoyed having these little chaps out to decorate the Christmas Tree, they’ve appeared in many of my photos over the festive period!  All the birdies are knit from my Seasonal Birdie Baubles pattern, which can be found in my online shops.

Enjoy the photos
