Tom Kitten

The next in line of my Beatrix Potter knits – the Twitchit family! And first of all is the little mischief maker, Tom Kitten, dressed in his finest, but not best fitting, clothes! Here he is having scrambled up the

Don’t pull the pin!

They might EGG-splode! Ok, ok, I know it’s an EGG-stremely bad pun, but it had to be done! These are a little pair of knitted hand grenade egg cosies, based on the free pattern ‘GRENADE’ by Ali Hogg (Cast kn 42, start

Happy birthday Inkling!

Inkling turned one on Friday, and I can honestly say I have no idea where the year has gone. I swear time moves faster the older you get! We had a BBQ for him on Saturday (Hungry Caterpiller themed due
