Penguins in a Pear Tree

Penguin in a Pear Tree – Calgary Zoo

 

You might  recognize one of those  gold penguins as the one I knit  a month back…..  since then,  I also knit a black and white penguin, but he is not in the  zoo commercial.   These little guys are  fun, and  addictive.

Here is the  updated penguin pattern:  Muddles 

 

Glitter Penguin

Long story short, this I knit this sparkling golden penguin as part of a group penguin knitting project for the Zoo. I’ll share more details of the why, and how and when you can see the finished project. For now, just soak in all that sparkles.

Happy Thanksgiving! (and you thought I maybe there would be a knit Turkey!)

Pigeons Anyone? How about Bees?

The newest from StitchLondon; a book launch and a pigeon:

I will be looking for this book, and probably making a pigeon or two
myself. So cute, and probably not so messy! Proceeds from sales of the new book will go cancer research.

Actually, if I lived in London, I would join the StitchLondon knitting group. It sounds like a lot of wild and woolly fun.

Speaking of wild and woolly fun, it must be time for me to start working on a knit graffiti piece for Calgary. Its been a while since I put up anything locally. Hmmmm, what will it be?

What I have been doing is a lot of knitting, just not graffiti. Have you heard of the beekeeper’s quilt from TinyOwlKnits? Its wonderfully addictive. Watch at your own risk.

Here are pictures of my growing pile of hexipuffs: (as you can now see, they like to get out and have fun!)

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…
