The Cat’s Meow

After having knit the baby to be a blanket, Felix asked me to knit her something with the rest of the green wool. Having knit the snake and the baby blanket in said green wool, I was getting a bit

Goodbye 2016!

I don’t know if a lot of people feel the same way, but 2016 was cursed. My family was hit pretty hard, there’s been death, terminal illness and long term ill health. I won’t go into detail on those. One

The Christmas knitting…

Is completely and utterly, finally and at long last, completed! All the sewing and tucking in of ends and finishing touches are done. They’ll get their own post after Christmas so as not to spoil any surprises. I’ve also finished

Parka Meower 2 and attack of the turtles!

Apologies for the crazy blog post, I couldn’t resist. I’m in a funny mood today, probably because I got stuck behind Thomas the Tank Engine on the motorway on my way home today. Yes, it was an actual steam engine,

Parka Meower?

Perhaps a side profile? Pattern is ‘Parka Barker’ from Woolly Woofers by Debbie Bliss – a book I picked up for Rabbie…sorry Rabs! I’m just testing it, honest! Let me explajn. Like small children everywhere, Felix likes to take her
