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


Snugly Sheep

I’ve finally finished a textured, sheep themed baby blanket and a matching cushion cover.  This design took quite a few charts and swatches before I was happy with the moss/seed stitch sheep motifs.


I got there in the end and have designed, knitted, photographed and written instructions, the knitting patterns are finally up for sale.

To celebrate I am offering them at half price on Ravelry for one week, finishing at midnight (GMT) on Sunday, 10th September, 2017.


I didn’t find the photography easy, the cream and silver grey yarns reacted differently to the light, so choosing and editing took forever and I’m still not 100% happy!  However, I hope they provide the knitter with a good idea of how the final piece will look!

Until next time, happy knitting! IMG_3798

The Chicks – a new photo shoot

Been taking some up to date photos of The Chicks amongst flowers, which I can’t resist buying or picking.  Seem to be spending too much time behind the camera and not enough knitting at the moment!

the yellow one and the black one

I’ve recently been playing around with taking some new promotional photos of my softies, mainly for Instagram and Etsy updates.  I had fun with some old favourites and hope you like the photos, all knitting patterns can be found in my Etsy shop and on Ravelry
