Around this time of year over 2000 years ago, the stage of life was getting set to welcome the birth of the most loved and talked about baby ever born. A tiny baby who grew up to give the world two things it needed very much. Love and hope. In the spirit of giving, I give you these two sweet donkeys. The pattern is available here, on my free pattern page and of course at my ravelry store.
I am guest blogging at Espirational.com today and I invite you to take a peek at this site. Espirational is about “ the things we do to stay positive and remember who we are.” I get sidetracked easily and I find a visit to Espirational gets me focused and back where I want to be.
December is right around the corner and so I have organised a basket of small gifts that can be made up quickly and given away or kept and used as Christmas decorations. The Koala pattern is here. The Christmas hat is from a wonderful pattern by Anna Branford and is simple enough for a beginner to knitting and a quick and easy idea for the more advanced. If you need any help modifying this pattern to suit your project, please email me at my about page. I love to talk knitting and crochet.
Anna Branford has a craft book out now especially for beginners and those who like to make small things. Her book which features Violet Mackerel from the Violet mackerel series is so lovely, I urge everyone to check it out. It is called “how to make small things with Violet Mackerel”. This book would make the best gift for the little girl in your life and I will talk more about it later. I will finish with the pattern for the tiny hearts.
A friend of mine at Evil Squirrel’s Nest recently won this sparkle pony as a prize. I rather hoped I would win because it was so sparkly and one of a kind!
Funny thing is, around the same time he was given this Rainbow Unicorn.
The pattern for this beautiful critter can be found here
It is the end of the year and I have literally mountains of work to do in the hope that some bills might get paid plus gifts to make for friends and family so naturally I started to wonder what would happen if these two critters became “close personal friends.”
Hello world! I believe the offspring would look like this. Then I decided (because making this was so much fun) that a little brother or sister would be in order so…..
Twice the cute!
obviously they need to be together so look out for a package Bill!
