Following the Jean Greenhowe knitted nativity patterns, I created a handmadebysoo version of the ‘knitivity’ scene, which Anne has gifted to her great nieces for Christmas. Anne was kind enough to make a donation for the set to my favourite charity, the Nystagmus Network.
Both styles of Dr Who scarf are now sold out for Christmas 2014. If you would like to surprise your favourite ‘Whovian’ with a 4 metre long woollen scarf next year, please place your order now!
I finished knitting J’s seagull today and now he stands proudly, preparing to call to his friends. Mercifully, he is much quieter than the gulls outside. I love his beady eyes, made from the tiniest vintage buttons, but for me the best part has to be his knobbly knees!
For my ‘festival’ knitting project at the East Malling CAMRA beer and cider festival yesterday, I finally made a start on my latest knitting commission: a life sized knitted seagull for J.
The cider at the festival was, however, very good, so I’m afraid I didn’t get terribly far with the knitting. I started at the top of the head and just got the eyes in place.
