Do you count sheep to help you sleep?

Watching this video has inspired me to knit a sheep….    of course,  now I have to find a pattern ….

Watch it now,  while I go searching for a pattern on ravelry!

How can I resist them?

and wow, there are tons of sheep toy patterns on ravely, and this one might be my favourite: Lamb Pattern

So, add to the list of things I must knit…

Funny Yarn Bombing News Report

I saw this report on yarn bombing on facebook, and just had to share it.  The guy should maybe consider an acting career!

I have started working on my next project…. a bit is knit so far,  but there is more planning to do.    So,  for now,  just know that something is in the works!

 

 

The Knitted Maze Pictures

I am reposting from Knit A Year’s blog. She got up early, travelled for several hours on a train and then a bus to go to Saffron Walden to see the Knitted Maze in person. Check out the details on her blog. I am not sure which bit is her knitting, but I can see in this picture mine, so we have visual proof that the package arrived in time! (Yay UPS).

I also have to send a huge thank you to Sophie, who arranged the whole Knitted Maze… what a lot of work that must have been… and a lot of knitting too!

Here is a quick picture:

4400 miles to go

Calgary to London is about 4400 miles. That is such a long way to send this bit of knitting, but, I sent it. Now lets hope it gets there in time. Go UPS Go. Go UPS Go.

I didn’t realize it would be so hard to photograph approximately 9 meters of knitting goodness. LOL … however, the pictures do give you a bit of an idea of its lonnnnnng snakey shape, and a bit of the wild colours I used. Most of it is knit with 2 strands of acrylic yarn held together on JUMBO 12.75mm (US size 17) knitting needles.

As you can surely guess this is my almost too late contribution to the Knitted Maze, in the UK. If you have a chance to see it, please do, and take your camera. Among other exciting things, there will be about a mile of knitting, formed into a maze.

Hearts Grow on Trees

Here are pictures of a few pretty turqouise hearts I am sending to Art Grows on Trees in the UK. I started out strong, knitting the butterfly ring, with great plans to make a few more butterflies, birds, and more….. something about plans in the summer… …. …. There is only one knitted butterfly. I hope he is not lonely. ;)

Luckily, early this spring, I felted a bunch of old wool sweaters that I found at thrift shops. One is a perfect shade of turquoise, and has been cut, sewn, and button charmed into some dangly little hearts. I may add a few more surprises to the package, before I mail it out…

These remind me of the heart shaped sugar cookies my mom makes. Of course, the cookies aren’t turquoise, well.. sometimes the icing is pretty colourful, depending on how many little fingers are involved with the food colouring!

Fantastic new photo blog by my ubertalented daughter.
