Loom knitting

I have not done this type of knitting before but it does seem to look very similar to the cotton reel technique I learned as a child.

Here are some examples I have found today to learn a new technique or even enhance the once lost in time cotton reel adventure, I can still remember doing it and watching the cord appearing at the base of the cotton reel.  How many of you remember doing that at school?

Collectables

I thought these dolls are beautiful and great addition to your collection.  I love dolls myself and have a few in Spain which I am hoping to bring over when I sell my house.

Although mine are used as models for the clothes I knit for dolls and teddys.

These are absolutely delightful could not resist sharing with you.

     
    
    My fellow crafter friend has two delightful baby dolls which are so cute tucked up in their beds in her house.  I have a strong affinity with people who still have a touch of child within them as it makes people much more friendly and affectionate.  I love my great old ted which is in Spain he is called Albert and I have had him since my first birthday, although he is looking a bit worse for wear as he has travelled with me alot i use him too for knitting clothes for him as his size is about the size of a one year old child.  I love to knit and be very creative hence my need to do this blog to help share what I do and what others are doing too.

My latest knitting from here

The Country Diary Book of Knitting

I bought this book years ago and now and again  I love to make the sweaters in them.  At the moment I have just started Song Thrush and Young.  Do have a look it is  a lovely easy pattern to follow and is much fun to to.

Recently I completed the Mohair jacket and will be using it again for other ideas.  It also has a great range of toys and teddy jumpers which I have used and adapted for my teddys.  Children’s sweaters and fun things for craft fares.  Do buy it and fun with it.

My creations

This is what I do, I enjoy working with a variety of yarns and patterns, whether it be hats, dolls clothes, gloves or whatever, I really enjoy it.

if you have made something and would like to get it promoted and try to earn some money from your stock of knitted and crochet or whatever it is you have made, I can help you.  Contact me and we can find a way to help get your started.

Firstly, you will need to take photos of your products, send them to me, with your contact details and that is it, I will upload them on to this site with a full page just for you which people can just click onto and see your creations and order them direct from you.

If you would like to learn how to do it for yourself then do not hesitate to contact me.

i know that there are many who enjoy knitting and crocheting but do not know how to get them noticed and they are fed up with craft fares which do not bring in the people like they used to so – I can help you if you would like me to.
