I’ve been working on a new pattern called Everett the Elephant.

Meet Everett the Elephant! A wonderful companion for anyone!
He’s quite tall reaching 9.5 inches in height and 15.5 inches at its widest point, wonderful to hold and carry around.
He’s knitted in worsted yarn with 4.5mm circular needles.

4.5mm / US6 circular knitting needles
20 grams of Double Knitting yarn for the tusks
4mm circular needles for knitting the tusks
Sewing up needle
Merino fleece for stuffing
2 Black buttons, fleece or embroidery thread for the eyes,
Felting needle for the eyes (if using fleece)
Two stitch markers

This is an easy pattern, knitted in the round with circular needles,
Kfb to increase
Knit 2 together to decrease

The pattern also has photos to guide you through the creative process:)

Happy knitting!


The Rain is Here!



We’ve been so busy with exams etc… that I haven’t had much time to pop in here to post about what we been up to, so I thought I’d share a little of what’s been happening. This beautiful sunflower self-seeded and popped up in our little garden by our front door, it makes me happy each time I see it!


We have a new family member! Meet Lou, we thought she was a she but today we discovered she is actually a he! He is the cutest little guy, very active and quite mischievous indeed! So far we’ve introduced him to Olive and she seems to tolerate him but our other cat Charlie is not interested in a new family member at all. We’ll have to give him some time to get used to Lou.




Our veggie garden growing just outside my kitchen, it’s worked so well, the birds haven’t touched our spinach for the first time ever! Yay!


I’m so proud of this pepper, it’s absolutely huge and bi-coloured!


We all attended a Roman themed party on Saturday night, it was such fun to dress up!


These Souties Squash also self-seeded in the front garden along with the Sunflower, I can’t wait to taste them! (the squash that is!)


We have been experiencing the most terrific thunderstorms this week! It literally hasn’t rained for weeks and now, the rain seems to be here!! Thank goodness, my poor garden is saved :)
