Seagull work in progress

Here's a work-in-progress photo of some little knitted gulls that are an adaptation of one of the first knitting patterns I ever did. I've simplified these by losing some of the felt details and changing the beak to a simple knitted shape - I quite like these new streamlined gulls.

I AM THE GOD OF HELL FIRE AND I BRING YOU...

To celebrate the start of the Chinese new year, the year of the Fire Rooster, my knitted chicken did a Crazy World of Arthur Brown cosplay.

Meet Neil and Stanley, the knitted guinea pigs! If you'd like to make them, my knitting pattern is in the February issue of Let's Knit magazine. They are nice and easy to make, they are knitted flat on 4mm needles and you can use your favourite DK yarn to make them.

It's a new knitted bird! I've been working on this Kookaburra for the last week and am so pleased with how he turned out.
