Christmas 2019

Doing my usual Christmas crafts, Nativity sets, light strands, slippers, bunnies, bears and new for this year the reindeer.

But my absolute favourite this year were the giant gnomes.
The pattern is "Here We Gnome Again" and are actually knitted on a 3mm needle. But a client asked me to make them at least 40-45 cm tall so I used a very bulky yarn and 8mm needle.

They turned out fantastic!

Baby stuff

Expecting new babies in the family again so back to some old favourites (the duck) and trying out some new cuties.

The top left booties are my own design.

The baby slippers are from Ravelry

The giraffe is from LoveCrafts


Have to work ahead of time so here are some new slippers for the upcoming winter season!

The possibilities for design and colour combinations are endless.

Foxy girl

Another cute animal from Little Cotton Rabbits website, a Foxy girl this time.

I had been eyeing her a for a while already but when I saw an alteration on this fox to make it into a reindeer (for Christmas) I was definitely sold.

So here she is.

And the reindeer change-up.

Canada Day

I had a request to make a typical Canadian animal with a red and white dress.
I couldn't find a pattern that pleased me so I ended up altering the bunny pattern (from Little Cotton Rabbits) into a beaver, with small ears and added some big teeth. I embroidered a maple leaf on the front of the dress.
It turned out pretty nice so I'm pleased.
And so was the customer!


Cute, cute, cute!
These mini bunnies and bears are a new pattern from Little Cotton Rabbits.
Perfect for babies, all in one piece, no buttons.
Only about 14cm high (knitting on 2.5mm needle).
Had a great time using up all kinds of leftover yarn.

A Whole New Batch

Here they are, a whole new set of bunnies, bears, pigs, cats and mice! Take your pick.  The bunny stays my favourite, but the others come close.  It also depends on what clothes they are wearing.

Back to work

After a nice (unexpected) trip to Holland to see family and friends I'm back home again and ready for some new projects.
Bought some beautiful Unicat yarn at my favourite store in Arnemuiden to make shawls for my girls.
Too bad I was held back by the limited amount of suitcase space otherwise I could have brought back a lot more. This has to do for now. Can't wait to start on it.
Also need to restock my stuffed animal display, so that means back to work in a hurry!

Update September 20, 2019
One shawl done (for myself, the girls can't decide yet which pattern to use).

I love this pattern Secret Paths, available for free on Ravelry


Never thought that Easter Bunny post would be so successful!
I have been knitting overtime lately, I did more than 30 bunnies and also sold some extra dresses and cardigans.
I'm going to take a little knitting break now and I'll be ready to start on some different stuff in a couple of weeks!

Healthy Easter Bunnies

This Easter, instead of buying chocolate bunnies, why not get a much "healthier" and longer lasting gift, a hand knit bunny, dressed in clothing of your choice.  Extra clothing pieces available.

Dressing up

As a kid, the thing I liked most was changing clothes on my dolls and that feeling hasn't changed much since then.
One of my favourite things to do is making new clothes for my knitted animals.
Since I got myself a little clothes rack to fill it has never been empty and gives my costumers a choice what kind of outfit they want.
And I can adjust according to the season, Christmas clothes, Easter clothes, summer clothes.

Right now I've made some cute Valentine outfits, in red, white and pink and with hearts of course.
