Just another cat obsessed knitter

Looking back at 2017

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:


A Badger Blanket



Woolly Snowflakes Hat and Woolly Snowflakes Cowl patterns (both Toddler to Adult sizes)



Love Cats on a Hat


Prowling Cats Cowl


Floral Flutters Cowl


Laurel Baby Booties and Laurel Baby Hat



Snugly Sheep Baby Blanket and Snugly Sheep Cushion Cover



Woolly Sheep Cowl and Woolly Sheep Mittens



Reindeer Baby Hat (to match my Reindeer Booties pattern designed in 2012!)


Winter Robin Hat (Baby to Adult sizes)



Textured Diamonds Cowl


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.

Snowman Baby Booties!

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…IMG_6893IMG_6888IMG_6907

You can purchase your copy of the pattern on any of The Knitters websites…Happy Knitting!

Owl Baby Hat and Booties


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!

Snugly Sheep

Snugly Sheep!

After being inspired by local countryside walks and sheep I have come up with these adorable sheep hat and booties for babies!

The knitting pattern is availiable to purchase at the following sites:
