Hippo Happiness!!!

Recently I was contacted by an expectant mother. She wanted a knitted toy for her baby boy. We discussed options, and she decided - with the help of her husband - that a hippo would be lovely.

Personally I think hippos can be really cute, so I was only too happy to oblige =)

And this hippo sure came out looking just too cute!

See for yourself!


I wonder what his name will be...


His arms just stretch out to give a hug - don't you think?

 

That cute heart on his foot!!! He does wear his heart where all can see it! =)


Did you spot his little tail?

Contact me, if you want something knitted but aren't quite sure what is available - I love to try new toys!

A little girl's dream present

One day while scouring the internet for knittable presents, I came across a Baby Love Dolly Sling. 
So, here is the one I made for one of my little nieces =)



My daughter loved modelling the sling, and naturally has asked for one of her own...



This certainly would be good for a girl who wants to have her "baby" close at hand, but still be able to use both hands to play with other toys...

Autumn Competition Prizes

In March I had a competition on my Facebook page. Inviting my viewers to guess how many pieces of Duplo were in this tub...

To my surprise I had two ladies guess the EXACT number of blocks!

I very nearly fell off my seat! =)

There was 310 pieces - just in case you were wondering...

The prize winners could chose anything from my shop, and both (unsurprisingly) chose blankies. Being my most popular item to date, I really didn't expect anything else!

So here they are:


Yet another elephant (the most popular choice for a blankie) - now with the new improved trunk!


A lamb - one of only two produced with a special yarn, which makes it look even more like a lamb!

Keep an eye out for my winter competition in June!
