“K” is for Kite (& also for Kangaroo)!

I am on a roll! I finished “I”, “J” & “K” in just 4 days, please don’t expect this level of speed to continue!

As part of my “A” to “Z” Knitting Challenge, I chose to knit a kite for K but I wasn’t sure what type of critter to use for my kite flyer, and then I received a commission from a friend to design a kangaroo! Perfect timing!!

Just for fun, here are some other knitted critters enjoying the kite!

I enjoyed designing and knitting the kangaroo so much that I have decided to make it available in my stores as one of my patterns for sale. I will be posting the pattern in the next couple of weeks!

“A” to “Z” Knitting Challenge – G is for Granny!

For anyone keeping track of my “A” to “Z” Knitting Challenge, you may have noticed that “F” is for Frost Flower is missing!  No, I have not forgotten about the letter F and the Frost Flower pattern is underway, however, as it is a longer term project, I decided that it would not be breaking the rules of the challenge to move onto the next letter ahead of time! After all, I made up the rules 🙂

I am happy to introduce “G” is for Granny!

I have made a few dolls using versions of this pattern but wanted to spend some time perfecting the shaping and the finishing techniques.  I will be making another couple of samples to test my pattern over the next week or so and once complete, I will be adding the pattern to my Ravelry and Etsy stores.

Now, just to prove that F is not forgotten, here is my WIP for “F” is for Frost Flower.

I really love this lace pattern and am very happy with the yarn I chose, Moonstone Metallic Shawl in a Ball by Lion Brand, purchased from Yarn Canada.

I hope to finish this project in the next two or three weeks and will also be starting on “H” is for hat!
