Finally after many attemps I have created a bowl that is actually a bowl and not just a wobbly shape that you can put things in. With many layers of merino wool and a little silk this pretty bowl is hopefully the first of many to be created by these fair hands.
If you’d like to learn how to make a similar version why not come along to my workshop in Horsham. Monday 4th March 2013 Workshop time ; 7pm – 9.30pm at Brighton Road Baptist Church. Places are limited so book early, either though me or the Make website
Just in time for Easter we will make a few needlefelt eggs to pop inside too!

For years I have been designing and knitting my own patterns so this is about time. It was one of my resolutions and I think I have actually fulfilled it!
The Bandana Scarflette is easy for a beginner but satisfying for any level. It can be knitted in most any yarn as well as leftovers of the same weight.
Here is a picture and a link to ravelry for the pattern.

Last week en route to Brighton I spotted some cheeky pidgeons flying in and out of a broken window of an empty top floor flat. I dread to think what the interior must look like if the wildlife have taken over an empty property. Down below the people in the offices were probably unaware of the ‘squatters’ above. What a waste!
While the pidgeons were enjoying a dry and sheltered accomodation a young man and his dog had taken up residence in a doorway on North St. I wondered how long he’d been there and how he cares for himself and his pal. He looked snug, wrapped up well but where’s the justice here? Wildlife living in a flat and a man and his dog living in a doorway?
I regularly see a man in Lewes wandering around in layers on clothing, filthy dirty avoiding the stares of everyone around, muttering to himself. What’s his story?
I don’t know how I can help, I deperately wanted to help the man in North St. As for the pidgeons, well they should be evicted and the landlord should make good his property. Empty houses should not be empty.

After knitting 2 rather large and time consuming octopi I thought I should knit a few baby ones, so here they are! Knitted in one piece with no seams, just lots of ends to sew in, they are completely washable and safe for little ones. The yarn is a bamboo mix so quite shiny & very soft.
They will be appearing in the etsy shop later.
