meet Bob!


A happy new year to you all!
Thank you for visiting my blog lovely people...your comments and visits mean the world to me :)
This winter I've become slightly obsessed with knitting! I get into it every winter, but this year it's been particularly exciting as I have managed to knit my very first toy elephant, hooray! (Thank you Harriet for the brilliant book, "Knitted wild animals" by Sarah Keen!) My boyfriend has named him Bob. He's about 30cm tall - it's nice to make something you can actually hold, sit in your lap and cuddle!
Here he is hanging out with his felt toy cousins.
My boyfriend caught me taking photographs of them in my studio and asked "Is this what you do all day when I'm at work?" ...mm, yeah pretty much.


  1. Bob is just lovely <33 My childhood was full of knitted characters, it's great to see them back again :D

  2. happy new year - hope it's a good one for you!!

  3. Bob is great - I love the texture on his trunk!

  4. Thank you!! Now I want to knit him some friends!

  5. I love it I love it! I'll swap you my crochet book for your knitting book - I'm obsessed with rabbits!

  6. Sounds good! I'd like to learn how to crochet :)
