Hello and Happy Mother’s Day, hope all you mums out here are being deservedly spoilt.
I’ve had a busy time of it recently as you have probably noticed with all my blog spam (sorry not sorry.
There is no better feeling than when someone reaches out to you after seeing your work online and being asked to make them something. Especially when you read “I have seen your work online and know you are the one to make me what I want”
After smiling upon reading this you do take a moment to think oh no what do they want? Ha ha
This one however I couldn’t wait to start it. I ordered the yarn straight away and eagerly anticipated it’s arrival and always The Knitting Network did not disappoint.
I have never worked with flutterby yarn before but as soon as I felt it I immediately knew why it was used for the puffin. My goodness its so soft, not great to work with though (black ugh). On the black sections of the pattern I couldn’t see the stitches most of the time I had to feel my way with the hook.
Pattern by Olives Toy Box and was super easy to follow.
Scheepjes Catona cotton
James C Brett Flutterby Chunky with a 3 / 4mm hook used.
This beautiful comforter will be on it’s way to it’s new home soon to await the arrival of it’s new forever friend.
I hope you have enjoyed reading today, take care and enjoy the rest of your day whatever you are doing and I will be back with you soon.
