It’s raining cats and…

Ducks?

I went out to the cat mint the other day, in the rain (it’s done nothing but rain for weeks now it feels!) and to my surprise, I found…


Jemima Puddleduck! I brought her in, dried her off, and we got gabbing over some nettle tea and discussed the weather in true British fashion…

(We also spoke fondly of that handsome fellow, dear Mr Todd…)

Joking aside, I’ve picked up in my Beatrix Potter knits again and decided to start with Jemima so I would have the full cast for when Felix and I are acting The Tale of Tom Kitten…this pattern, like the others I’ve made, are the ones created by Alan Dart and after a request the other day by someone trying to find the patterns, it appears that they are completely out of print, you can’t even get them from the Alan Dart website…so if anyone does want them, eBay or Amazon are my only suggestions.

In other news, I’m up North for Christmas and have already had a ball – you can read more on the adventures over at Rabbies/Missy’s blog. (Exact link to be posted when she finishes typing her blog post, we are totally not racing, though I am definitely winning!)

Edit: she finishes her blogpost about today!

I’ll see you after Christmas! Have a good holiday no matter what you celebrate!

    It sounds a lovely afternoon, enjoying nettle tea and discussing the weather!

    Although when are we going to see this handsome Mr Todd? 🙂

      I’m saving making him until near the end as a treat to myself for finishing the huge undertaking of the crazy project!

      He does exist in wool form, his little balls of wool are sat neatly wound and tucked away!
