Isn’t she cute?

It took me ages to get her to balance on the ball of wool for the photo.

I’ve been making some mini sheep knitting kits, which are great for hanging from knitting bags, handbags and rucksacks, car mirrors, desk drawer handles – in fact anywhere you need some woolly loveliness. 

The fleeces are removable so you can dress and undress her all day long.

Oh La La! Where are your clothes, Madam!

The kits are quick to knit, so you can produce a herd in no time, or start stocking up on Christmas gifts for sheep loving friends.

Hello, and welcome to my blog, where I talk about the ups and downs of running a crafty business, knitting and life. I learnt to knit when I was a child in the 1970s. I think my Mum taught me, though it may have been one of my Nans. Both Nans were great crafters and my Mum knitted, when she had time. My childhood was full of wearing Mum's warm and cosy handknit jumpers to school and playing with yarn by the fire, making presents for my family and clothes for my toys. When I grew up, I started a business designing children's handknitted jumpers. Now I spend some of my time desgining gardens, as well as designing knitting. The garden design business is well established; the knitting design business is just starting out. I love the rhythmic quality of knitting, the feel of woolly yarn in my hands and the way a project grows beneath my fingers. It is relaxing and productive at the same time. I especially love vintage knitted toys and the quirky simplicity of the patterns. They were often made in times of austerity, when money and supplies were short, but the desire to create something fun inspite of this, shines through. I am a supporter of the Campaign for Wool, supporting the British wool industry, and using British yarn for my kits. Where would we be without fields of fluffy sheep to admire? Baa Humbug to acrylic!
