The eagle-eyed amongst you may have noticed a lack of blogging about knitting recently. There was a good reason for this, it was super sekrit knitting, which I feel always the best kind.
The first project was a Lizard, for well, let us just call her Lizard. After all I do. To be honest the most surprising thing about this project was how long it took me to get around to knitting her a Lizard. Also it is by far the rudest thing I have ever knitted.
Then I moved on a Guinea Pig (NOT a Hamster, Gerbil or other small furry rodent I thank you ) as clearly this is what you must knit your Guinea Pig keeping friend. Not just any old kind of Guinea Pig though, but a thoroughly piratey one. I am very fond of this piggy as he is made up of at least Three Different Patterns, an ounce of luck and a few deep breaths. Yet all along I knew he would turn out just fine, because nice surprises don’t go wrong (well not that kind of wrong).
Finally we have this Lovely Ladybird which I knitted for my mother in one evening. This was the fastest I have ever knitted anything and I was oddly unphased by it. I’d thought of the idea a week or so before and chose a ladybird because way back in Year 7 I made a pencil case with a ladybird potato stamped design. I gave it to my mother and she still uses it to this day. I may not have made many things at School but most of them are still functional!
