    Charity Shop Pattern Finds

    Over the weekend J and I did our usual charity shop rummages and look what I found! These amazing vintage patterns were tucked away in a corner, found after some serious rummaging! These patterns made the grade:   J has requested a Father Christmas jumper, and I can’t wait to knit a small person a Spot The Dog jumper! These, although awesome, didn’t quite make it home! Celebrity knitting patterns, what a genius idea! Not sure how much input Billy Connolly would have to his knitting pattern though!!

    Paloma Cardigan

    A while ago I tweeted about the Paloma Cardigan pattern on Ravely from Thea Coleman. I love this cardigan soooo much, and once I have finished the little people’s animal hats, this will be my next project! I can’t decide on which yarn to use though. The pattern uses O-Wool Legacy Bulky in Desert Blush. This colour is amazing, but I’m slightly worried it’s too close to my natural skin colour, so I’m thinking about using something else. A current contender is Drops Paris in Raspberry. I’m hoping one of the stalls will sell it at The Knitting and Stitching show in October so I can check it out!

    Seagull Love

    A while ago, J and I were lucky enough to be on the pre-Bestival boat party and I developed a very real attachment to Barry, the plastic seagull!                   Ever since then I have been wanting a seagull of my very own, and now I think I’ve found the answer in Nicky Fijalkowska’s knitted seagull pattern! It’s very cute, and I think he would replace plastic Barry nicely!

    Snap The Aligator

    This pattern for a knitted alligator toy is SOOOOO cute!! I’m going to put this on my ‘things to knit next’ list as I think it would make the best toy ever!!

    Crochet Bag

    I really love this tutorial for a spring crochet bag! The colours of the yarn are so fresh, it would be perfect for the beach, and it even has a cute inside pocket! spring bag tutorial

    Perfect PJ Bottoms, Well Almost…..

    I FINALLY finished these pyjama bottoms. They should probably have taken a couple of hours, but I struggled to get the shape and fit how I wanted and so they probably ended up taking about 8!! Oh well, everyone has to start some where!!
