Unsolicited Knitting

No sewing this week - just a lot of woolly creatures. 

I wanted to share a little personal project I've been keeping myself amused with during lockdown 3.0 and that was something I liked to call:

UNSOLICITED KNITTING

It's basically what it says. I entertained myself by making knitted creatures and secretly posting them out to people as a surprise gift - whether they wanted it or not. Either way it was with love.

Whilst I dabbled with knitting jumpers etc, I didn't love that too much but did find my joy in making creatures!

There was a fair few bugs sent out this winter, of the colourful cheery kind, and a lovely frog hat which was so much fun to make. (And the perfect use for an over-order of green yarn from Christmas sprout making). I found the patterns for these on LoveCrafts for free!

As I got braver, there were birds a plenty - and its turns out I absolutely LOVE knitting these birds from Knit for Victory. I really want to make the whole collection, the characters that Nicky Fijalkowska Stewart are just fantastic and her daily posts on Instagram hilarious. 

Sincerely Louise patterns have also been brilliant for knitted creatures as they are all worked flat (I attempted knitting in the round but failed spectacularly).

As the creature knitting continued I also found additional fun in trying to make little 'scenes' for a photograph.

 Lockdown 3.0 was a tough one - this was my way through :)

Now things have lifted a bit I do intend to keep making bits here and there - especially the birds!

 My first attempt at knitting was February 2019 and it was my sole ambition to make a pigeon...

 I think it may be time.
