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

Sometimes being a parent means that you loose your sense of self a little. You are so focused on ensuring that everyone is fed, has clean clothes, that there's milk in the fridge, toilet rolls in the cupboard and no-one... 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 :)

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

Thanks so much Mollie, I've never liked knitting on 4 double pointed needles and always got ladders so I'm so pleased that magic loop seems to work for me - I hope you find it works for you too, Caroline's link looks like a good one.

I'm still not entirely happy with my sock knitting technique either Shehla but I'm working to the idea that practice helps make perfect. I hope you find your way to happy sock knitting :)

The two E's are certainly wise in the ways of knit. I'm coming to see what naughty purchases that unknown to you person has made, better keep an eye on them as I might get sticky fingers :)

Being autistic, Toby's life is governed by a requirement for routine, especially when it comes to food. In his mind certain foods go together and can never be eaten alone, for instance crisps must always come in a bowl with... Continue reading

There are some wonderful sock yarns out there aren't there Vivienne? There's probably more choice in sock yarn than any other kind. One of the nice things which is handy for us bunny makers is that when you've knitted a pair of socks there always seems to be a little bit left over that's just enough for a bunny cardi :) Hope you're having a lovely summer, I hope to pop by and visit your blog soon and catch up properly, xxx
