I’m finding myself being drawn to making toys again so thought I’d put up pics of some of the little fellows I’ve made in the past. A mixture of knitted, crocheted and sewn, they pop up around the house now and again.
My Nana taught me how to knit and crochet when I was a child. I didn’t keep it up beyond my teens but was inspired to rekindle my relationship with wool whilst on honeymoon in Iceland. So I bought a crochet hook and with the help of You Tube managed to make a frog and a Santa. Then I was indeed hooked, made a few more animals and extended it to knitting, this time with the help of a lovely book by Laura Long.
I don’t do much knitting or crochet at the moment – the sewing machine seems to have taken over – but maybe I’ll pick up those needles again during the winter months.
