Another project almost there!

Morning all! I awoke this morning to glorious sunshine! after the last few days of gales and rain it was a wonderful feeling, added to that a chance to get all my washing on the line at last.
As I have mentioned before I am determined to complete ALL my unfinished projects before starting the huge list of what I really want to make, so the last few days I have been frantically knitting away little decorations from this pattern.


It is from
I have had this pattern since early last year! and have been dipping in and out of it for an age! I finally finished the last decoration a polar bear yesterday and just have to attach cords to all 25 of them and decorate the box. Alan Dart patterns have a cult following over on Ravelery and command a small fortune on ebay which I personally would never pay! I highly recommend theses patterns for any knitters out there that are looking for a small project that can be completed in a few days. If you can knit and purl increase and decrease you will have no difficulty with these patterns. I hope to post a Ta-Dah picture later this week when I have completed the finishing touches! Hope you all have a wonderful day.


  1. Can`t wait to see your decorations. I bought this pattern a few years ago and only half made the elf.

  2. Wow spooky, a friend posted me this patten today! Not sure I would have the staying power to get through them all.
    Really lovely

  3. Hi. You didn't sign up for the Christmas decoration swap, you signed up for the Advent swap and the sign up for that doesn't end until next week. So you'll be partnered up then. I hope that makes sense? Lynda x

  4. Oh these are gorgeous! You clever thing :) they are so special. Looking forward to seeing them with their finishing touches!
