Frederick the Warthog Pattern is Live and a Giveaway

Warthog Pattern 1

Warthog Pattern 2

Warthog Pattern 3


Today is a very exciting day!

My Frederick the Warthog pattern has gone live on Ravelry and Etsy. We had a wonderful test knit on my Ravelry group this past week  and the knitters will be linking their warthog projects over the course of today and tomorrow. The behind the scenes work on this project has been doubly fun because it’s the first time that I have had the pleasure of working with a technical knitting editor. Her name is Clare Devine and what a breath of fresh air it has been to work with her. Clare has used her expertise and technical knowledge and produced a really beautifully formatted pattern document with gorgeous detail. It looks just like I had envisioned, right down to the little warthog hoofprints trotting around the page!


I am offering 2 Frederick the Warthog patterns as a giveaway, if you would like to enter, please leave a comment and to earn extra entries, Tweet, Pin or Facebook about this giveaway. Leave an extra comment each time you share:) The winners will be announced on Friday.

Congratulations to:

Tea Leaves Cardigan

My Tea Leaves Cardigan is finished, I am so thrilled with how it turned out!! I have never loved a cardigan so much, it fits perfectly and the wool is so soft. I hand painted twenty 50 gram skeins of  Merino aran weight wool for this project using diluted reddish brown and grey dyes to give that antique rose shade and I dyed them in my sun stove. It’s wonderful to wear it now that Spring is here and we have been having a few cool evenings.

As most of you know, the month of August was a hospital month for us, this project was my constant companion while I sat at my dad’s bedside each day. I would take it out my basket and just knit a few rows…

My pattern notes on Ravelry are here

The buttons were given to me by my mom, she bought them many years ago to sew onto a jacket, but then decided not to use them, so they were just perfect don’t you think?

I feel a little silly in these photos. They were taken by Richard and Erin, have you noticed when you are having photos taken that you don’t really know how to stand or what to do? Thank you my loves for your sweet photos:)

I am finishing off my Circumnavigate Cowl at the moment, I am enjoying it so much…

Have a lovely week.

Joining in with the lovely Ginny today.
