And here is why!
The Gruffalo! My daughter absolutely loves the Gruffalo. I may have mentioned it once or twice here!
She first discovered the book when she was about two years old. It has become a bedtime constant and now she reads it to us. We know all about his knobbly knees and turned out toes and his purple prickles! So when i found the pattern for him here ravelry I knew he was a must knit. So I got him finished and my nephew saw him. Now he wants one, then my brother-in-law asked for one for my niece. So now I am knitting no. 3 . Well it keeps me busy!
I forgot to show one of my makes from the week before Christmas. It was so cold and Poppy our little chichi dog was getting really cold. So I whipped her up a little jumper. I put it in her stocking Christmas eve. Please excuse the marks on the jumper. as soon as she had unwrapped it Princess insisted on taking her for a walk! Even if it was raining!
It was made from old odds and end yarns that i had left over from other projects so was the perfect stash buster!
its really cosy and Poppy loves it! She looks so cute in it.
I was blessed to receive this book
It has some fantastic patterns in. one of my favourites is the huggy bunny. I feel I will be making a few of those this year!
On the needles today is this
Isn't he so cute! I have been waiting to start him for ages! He is the town crier from the Jean Greenhowe knitted hedgehogs pattern book. I cant wait till he's finished!
Well that's all from me today. Have a lovely blessed week
Bye bye for now x
