Yarn ALong -






More small projects.  A single rib scarf that still requires matching wrist-warmers that hopefully will get knitted tomorrow evening.  And  I've bought some colourful yarn as the fair isle leg warmers I had intended to make for another stocking filler would never been made in time...but this is so much quicker...I pinched the idea from here.  I'm just making plain stocking stitch ones but I think I prefer the reverse side. I quickly stitched up another pair or hopsolot bunny slippers and have had requests for two more pairs...they seem to be breeding...


Reading?   Most of the spare time at the moment gets taken up with baking or knitting for the weekend but I have managed to read a few more pages of Fruitlands. I'm still enjoying it and hope that over the holidays I'll be able to indulge in a bit more...but if not, there'll be plenty of time after...I don't want to miss out on any time with friends and family...


...and then I must make the knitted boxer dog...


I've linked over to small things again. Why not pop over and have a look what everyone else is making and reading...I am...Better still, why not join in the yarn along too...

  1. Such lovely photos. Those slippers are gorgeous. (Can you tell me, is the pattern adult size or child? My girls would love some of these.) Greer x

  2. I just love those bunny slippers. I'm not really knitting at the moment with all the lovely weather but come winter these could be just the thing now that we have moved from carpet to floorboards!

    If I don't get the chance before Christmas I just wanted to say how much I've enjoyed sharing all your adventures this year. I hope that you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and may the New Year bring you all much joy and happiness.

  3. Oh thank you Greer. The pattern comes in small, medium and large adult size, but they are quite small. It's a really easy pattern to make so I think it would be simple to size it down to a smaller size. Or maybe find a tiny pattern for simple knitted slippers and add on a tail and ears...when I have a little more time I'll have a look and see if I can find one for you...
