Having been away from blogging for a while, an update is needed
- The youngest, having hit 18, is not now as helpful with writing and uploading posts
- Basil is STILL on a diet!
- The household has inherited another cat – Smudge
- Basil is put out
- The Knitter is still knitting
- The Knitter has had to master blogging
Inspired by the arrival of autumn, my latest project is these cute ‘Woodlanders’ Swiss darned onto fingerless mittens. The mittens are knit flat, which makes adding the motifs a lot easier before sewing up the side seam. Check them out in my shops (see sidebar).
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!
Oliver and Olivia have a lucky escape!
Oliver and Olivia are created from a soft, fluffy yarn that is extremely cuddly! The pair love company and the outdoors, in their natural habitat. It doesn’t seem to take long for Basil to spot their snowy white feathers from a distance…
