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.

We haven’t heard much from Basil recently, so here are some photos with his thoughts!
I was peacefully sleeping, when rudely awakened for an opinion on this cat cowl thing. You can see my reply!
Accepting a tasty morsel, as I’m pleased to say I’m finally losing weight. The knitter has been starving me, she doesn’t refill my bowl when it’s empty even when I ask in the cutest way possible!
Trying to ignore a rival for the knitter’s attention, it’s certainly not as cute as me!
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.
I taught myself the double knitting technique over the summer and, using motifs from a jumper I designed for machine knitters many years ago, I came up with a ‘Pink Pigs Scarf’ and ‘Cosy Sheep Cowl’. The patterns for both are available in my Etsy shop and on Ravelry.
The double knitting technique produces a piece of knitting which is double sided and double thickness, a bit like two separate pieces being sewn together back to back, stocking stitch is uppermost on both sides with the colours reversed on the ‘wrong side’ – although you end up with two right sides! The two sides or layers are knit at the same time. If you have not used this technique before all becomes clear as you go.
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!
