Wrtapped Up Baby and Baby Bear knitting patterns

Sorry I have not updated the blog for a while. I listed my wrapped up baby and bear patterns and the sales have gone through the roof. They have really kept me busy for the last few weeks.

I listed the wrapped up baby and bear in the blankets first. After their success I decided to make the baby basket to carry the babies with and then I needed the carry bag to carry the spare basket and extra blankets.

What a busy few weeks I have had!!!

I have been so busy knitting the last few weeks that I have not had time to update my blog. How sad. I have too many new patterns to talk about each of them individually so I will jsut list them all for you.

Sam Bear - has been very, very popular - so popular I have made him into Superman, Indiana Jones and I am working on a baby at my son's cricket games.

Christmas decorations - these were a lot of fun. I have made some Christmas lights, Christmas ornaments and even a Christmas gift. These can all be used as tree ornaments but why not use them as table decorations or even use fabric paint to write yoiur guests names on and use them as placecards.

I have a lot more ideas but I have the kids at home for school holidays for the next few weeks. Hopefully I may get my next project online next week.

As usual, if you want any patterns please go to my Etsy store or go to Ravelry where there is instant download after purchase - no need to worry about the time differences because you get the patterns when you are ready for them.

Tool set knitting pattern

Last week I listed a knitting pattern for a tool set. It contains a hammer, apanner, screwdriver, tape measure and set square. I can not believe how popular it has been. I have sold quite a few on Ravelry already and it has only been on a few days!!! Best thing about it is that it stops the kids damaging walls and tables when "fixing" things. Also good idea to put a bell inside the top of the hammer and you have a baby rattle.

Today I am going to list another pattern when I get home fromthe gym. It is of a very cute teddy bear. This is quite a large project 0 it has taken me 2 weeks to perfect him - but I think it was well worth it.

Back from Holidays

I am back from my wonderful holiday to the Mediterranean. We had a wonderful time, especially the kids.

Now back to my knitting. I have forgotten what I am up to. I have listed 3 of my insects so I think I will work on the bee and maybe a snail next. I will let you know when they are ready and listed on Etsy.

I finally got some more critters finished and listed in my Etsy shop. I am very happy with the way they worked out. I have listed a caterpillar, butterfly and spider. I will not get the bee I am working on now finished but I will list it when I get back from holidays - early August. I will let you kno when it is listed. I have packed my sketch book so I will be back in 6 weeks with heaps of new ideas.

Starting to panic

I now have exactly one week left before I go away and I have just realised I am running out of time to get everything done. I am trying to get some of my new creepy crawly critters listed onto Etsy but I am afraid I just may not have the time. it is one of the things I want to get done before I leave but it is probably the only job that can wait until I get back. I will keep you all posted. If all goes well on Tuesday they may get on but if I can not finish by Tuesday I do not think I will get the on. I do have my fingers crossed.

Going on Holidays

I am going on holiday on Sunday 21st for 6 weeks. If anybody wants my patterns you have to buy them before I go. Otherwise, I will be back on 1st August.

I am hoping to get a few more critters listed before I leave. The spider is finished and I am very happy with the finished butterfly. When the caterpillar is finished I will list these 3. I am trying to draw up a ladybird but I may not get it done before I leave. He is still in the drawing stage.

The good new about me being on holidays is I will have a heap of time to design more items to knit. I have my sketch book, pencil and eraser already packed to go.

My first blog ever

Wow!!! I am blogging. I have never done this before and it is very exciting.

I just wanted another way to let people know about my knitting patterns I have finished and those I am working on at the moment.

For those of you who have not seen my patterns yet they are available in my Etsy shop. The current patterns are the same basic shape so I have a 4 pattern deal listed. The next ones will all be totally different patterns.

I am working on my Kookla Critters at the moment. The penguin, owl, duck and bird are available now.

I have been very busy over the last few days and I have a few ready to be listed. I have made a very cute spider and today i should be finished a very pretty butterfly. I have a monster ready too but I may wait and make a few monsters to make it a more versatile pattern.

I am not sure what to make next. I am thinking about a lady bird or a caterpillar. I have the drawings ready for the caterpillar so I think I will probably start that tonight.

If anyone wants any custome critter knitting pattern made just let me know. I am always looking for new ideas or it may be in the pipeline waiting to go. You never know unless you ask.

I will post again when I get the new ones listed. I am aiming for Friday I think.
