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...


If you would like one, please contact me using the contact form on the left of this page!

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!
