Finally some scrapbooking done

Well I finally got a few pages done for my scrapbook but I have soooo many to do this is a mere drop in the ocean.

Getting back into it feels a bit strange after all the knitting but its still great fun. 

Well what do you think?

Agnes the Unicorn

She may not be quite like Agnes' Unicorn from Despicable Me but I think she is rather cute even though I say so myself. Well Bryony asked if I could knit a Unicorn and I thought why not I knitted a horse so just a matter of adding a horn. It was a little harder to do as getting the correct wool proved nigh on impossible. We came up with a solution finally using wool and metallic embroidery thread, not ideal but it works.

Trouble is now some one has planted the idea of a Pegasus Pony in my dear daughters head. I wonder what would wings look like and what would you knit them from? Ideas people?

Two new Critters

Hi folks meet Hippocrates and El Guffo another two of my knitted creatures. A Tiger is under construction but since I am modifying the pattern to give irregular stripes it may take a bit more time to complete.

I hope you all like them.
