up the airy mountain, down the rushing glen,

we dare not go a hunting for fear of little men! First I found them cuddled up on the sofa





and then they jumped out the window to enjoy the sunny 'balcony'




Pattern: my own, which I have written up so I'm up for sharing if anyone cares.

Yarn: rowan polar

Needles: 7.5mm circular, I tried out magic loop because I could only find 1 dpn in this size. I'm not exactly a convert but it went speedily and worked well for this where I can split the knitting into 2 identical halves.

Details: needle felted on, which feels very voodoo and fun.

But why so many toys?

I will be at the Miso Funky craft fair in Glasgow on the 27th of May. It's very exciting, but I have lots of work to do. If you're in the area it would be very cool to see you.

I went to the library today and picked up these:


The crochet book is because while I can crochet in the round I have never done a rectangle that didn't go wonky. I have no plans to take up quilting but I bought some shirts to embroider for the fair and the Japanese quilting book has some very inspiring geometric designs.

I have pizza in the oven so I guess I better go.
