Next week it's the half term break here so Toby will be the centre of my attention, but this week I've been free to have fun playing with some of my knitted friends and making scenes to share. When I... Continue reading

Hi Gail and thanks so much. If you take a look in the new shoes pattern there are 4 pages at the back which have 3 options for the legs and feet - one with bare feet (a slightly smaller and more delicate foot than included in the boy animal patterns) or two socked foot options, eith with a simple garter stitch cuff or a folded over cuff. So you can pick any of those options and knit those instead of the regular legs with knitted on shoes that are in the girl animal patterns. Hope this helps, J x

There are occassions when you want to create a really neat join between two seamed pieces, especially when this join is at the top of the piece and so very visible. Within my patterns this occurs at the top edges... Continue reading

Everything seems to be taking much longer than usual at the moment and since Toby went back to school it has felt like I've been really busy but not actually getting anything done. I have however managed to finish off... Continue reading

Thanks so much CJ, when I was writing 'fourteen years' my brain did a double take, it seems to have flashed past so quickly! It will take a little while for Toby to settle but so far so good. I hope you and your family are doing well, I'm looking forward to having some time to catch up with your news over on your blog xxx

Before I started the Little Cotton Rabbits Facebook group it hadn't occurred to me how much people like to give their knitted animals accessories. Seeing lots of projects there with little shoulder bags and backpacks started me thinking that it... Continue reading

Just popping in briefly to wish you all the very best for a happy Summer (or Winter if you're in the Southern hemisphere). The school summer break has just started here and although Toby had only been back at school... Continue reading

On Tuesday, which looked like the best day of this week weather-wise, I took myself off for a picnic and my first solitary walk since March. Throughout the lockdown Toby and I have walked almost every day in his favourite... Continue reading

Hello Lynette and thank you so much for your kind words. When I wrote up the small rabbit pattern I did state that it is 8 inches from toe to top of ears but then I realised that would be a problem for all of the other small animal patterns that I am writing up - you see the rabbit ears are the longest so I decided it would make more sense to measure all animals from toes to the top of their head (and disregard ear height). So the larger animals are 9 inches to the tops of their head and the small rabbits are 7 inches to the top of their head. The new clothing patterns fit the 'Small Rabbit' pattern (and will fit the other 'Small' sized animal patterns to come in future). Hope this helps to clarify, J x

Hello there, it's been a while and I hope you're well. It feels like I've been working on these patterns for a very long time indeed and they have to be the most stressful set of patterns that I've ever... Continue reading

One of the challenges of writing a knitting pattern is that yarn manufacturers are constantly changing their collections - developing new yarns, discontinuing others and creating new colourways in existing yarns. It is impossible to keep up with these changes... Continue reading

Hello, how are things with you? Here we're plodding on with our small routines and trying not to panic too much at the thought that Toby may not go back to school until September. He's happy with walking in the... Continue reading

I know that you're most likely to be here for the knitting, but fair warning there's none of that here today. Instead this post is all about my lovely garden visitor Kit and her sweet cubs (eeeek!) Kit started visiting... Continue reading

Hello, how are you holding up? I expect that you're just like me and are finding that the days have lost their identity and all merged into a constant stream of sameness. Here we have settled into new routine of... Continue reading

It sounds like you are being very sensible Ailsa, though distancing yourself can feel very isolating. I hope you continue to find some online companionship and reassurance from the many others in a similar situation. Stay safe and well there too xxx

Thanks so much Vivienne, I can't quite let spring pass by without sneaking in a couple of pictures of the plum blossom, I always wish it lasted a little longer as it's so very pretty. But it does feel a bit surreal this year with things as they are/ I hope you and all those you love stay safe and well, all the very best my friend xxx
