A fluffy pink imp!

Pink imp

Just what the world needs – well, my small corner of Lincolnshire, anyway.

Having completed my original, appropriately stone-coloured version of the Lincoln Imp some time ago, thanks to the amazing pattern from The Old Toy Knitting Shop, I’ve now made a fluffy pink version, which sits on top of the hall cupboard.

You can read the story of my first attempt here.

A welcome woolly visitor

As fog and frost continue to shroud Fenton with only an occasional burst of watery winter sunshine to dispel the general January murk, this little woolly bird has arrived in handmadebysoo’s garden to cheer us all and remind us that Spring really is just around the corner.

The Trumpkin awaits

Halloween is a fairly big occasion in Fenton, so it’s fun to join in with a display. We have chocolate eye balls and other ghoulish treats all ready for the trick or treaters. The trumpkin carving went quite well and at handmadebysoo towers we managed to work in quite a lot of wool, too!

In memory of Meka.

Austrian apple slices

Today’s handmadebysoo cake for the Fenton Knitting Group members to enjoy is my take on Gretel Beer’s apple slices. Very continental, but without Gretel’s sultanas as one of our ladies doesn’t eat dried fruit. A sneaky taster as they came out of the oven reveals however that they are still delicious!
