Menagerie

Happy New Year, everyone! I’ve been traveling in Ireland and England the last few weeks, and naturally I left my camera cable at home. I’ll have lots to blog about when I get home next week.

But here’s something I can share now–awhile back Ailbhe had asked if I’d make her a menagerie of knitted animals for her little one when the time came. Menagerie member #1 was Mr. Penguin, and here is his first comrade:

It’s Ysolda’s Elijah, a terrific pattern I’ve knit once before, using Knit Picks Swish on #3s. I also made him a little vest with leftover Cascade 220 Superwash, but that photo will have to wait until I get home…

(Raveled here.)

    I like the set-up of the photo with your tarot card tray in the background. So cute!

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
