Creative Friday


I’ve started working on a swatch for a new cowl design, the yarn is Manos worsted weight, I love this yarn and the colorway is stunning. I’m hoping to get going with it soon, not too sure if I need to rather use a more monotone color to show up the pattern more?

Our Week

Charlie Po


Guinea Fowl Photo

It has been a week of illness here, both the girls have had flu and Erin also had a tummy bug. The weather has changed almost overnight from summer to winter and we already have our fires going. I need to bring all the warm knitted socks and hats out from storage and also start knitting a few more.

My Guinea fowls are finally finished and will be on their way to their new home soon. We are back into the busy business of homeschooling, extra murals and lessons. So many assignments are due in May and the exam series starts again in June, our new teacher has started and she is wonderful!

Oh yes, I just had to run and fetch my camera when I walked into our school this morning and discovered our very large Charlie had wedged himself, quite comfortably into this tiny shoebox. He is incredibly happy and snug and hardly even noticed me right in front of him taking pics. Too cute!

Hope your week has been lovely so far!

Marin the Spring Horse Pattern is Finished

Marin and Kye



I finished Marin the Spring Horse today. She’s a whole 16 inches tall and wonderful to hug and carry around. Kye loves her! I will have her pattern in my shop soon after the test knit.

Some more information about her, I’ve knitted her in worsted yarn on size 3.5mm needles, the mane and tail have been made with handspun Merino yarn and the body of the pattern including the ears takes approx 170 grams of yarn. This pattern is knitted flat, all in one piece on two needles. The ears are sewn on separately.

Chat soon ♥
