Last week was the school half term break so most of my time was taken up with keeping Toby out of mischief. I did have a free day on the Wednesday though (when he went for respite care) and by... Continue reading

There's been a change in the air this week. Autumn is breezing in on the wind, loosening the leaves from the trees and whistling through any windows left open. I've changed the duvets from lightweight summer throws to cosier covers... Continue reading

Hi Sue and thanks so much for your lovely message. Yes, I have patterns for most of my designs (there is still the pig and badger pattern to come which I'm working on now). You can find a link to purchase my patterns from my blog: http://littlecottonrabbits.typepad.co.uk/knitting-patterns/ or you can purchase via Etsy https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/Littlecottonrabbits In both places the patterns are instant digital downloads following payment. There's also lots of help in following the patterns and you can see lots of other projects that people have made by following my patterns here: http://www.ravelry.com/groups/little-cotton-rabbits If you have any questions please let me know with best wishes Julie

Thanks so much Marilyn. I've found that I'm happiest with 60cm lengths for magic looping socks - I tried 80cms but found them a bit long. A couple of people have recommended 9" circulars as perfect for socks but I've not tried those yet, I'm still finding my feet with sock knitting :)

Happy august to you too Anna, I hope you're having a good one. I think plans are all fine and large but usually life gets in the way somehow! J x

I was leary of them too Lori but magic loop has definitely been the game changer for me. Here's to obsessive knitting putting plenty of fuel in the tank. Thanks so much for stopping by to visit and for your lovely words xxx
