Love Bunny

There never seems to be enough hours in the day, do there?  Today is supposed to be my craft business day, but it’s lunchtime already and I have spent the whole morning sorting out garden stuff (the other job I have.)  It seems like I haven’t achieved much this week, but I have just about managed to get another bunny finished, in time for Valentine’s Day.

All together now – aaaahh!

I’ve also sent an order of sheep kits off to Jen, who is on Etsy as Beakerbutton and makes lovely handmade buttons.  She also has a craft shop near Andover, and is going to be selling the kits. 

I’m now off to try and sort out some labels for the knitting kits.

Everone’s been busy this week over on Handmade Monday, so see what they’ve been doing.


About madebyewe

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!
