Sock Yarn Bear Jackets...

a very quick post today to let everyone who has asked about 
the Little Bear Jackets know that the pattern is now available on Etsy and Ravelry 
(and for those who like to download from the Tearoom Shop it will be available tomorrow)

** Enter coupon code BEARJ20 for 20% discount on all MJT Knitting Patterns 
from 27th - 29th May 2017 **

The little jackets can be worked 'Bottom Up' ...

...or 'Top Down'...both with very little sewing required...

...and with options to knit the sleeves 'flat and seamed'...

...or 'in the round' ...(which then requires completely no sewing)...

...there are 14 examples of little self-patterning sock yarn jackets in the pattern
and so many more lovely yarns online to choose from.....
(or maybe you could use up all those sock yarn oddments you may have stashed away?)

...the jackets are suitable for Tearoom Bears here and here
or for Little Yarn Dolls here and here ...
(of course you may know someone else who would like to wear one too? )

For anyone who purchases the pattern I hope you have as much fun as I've had
designing and making them....I'm sure I'll be knitting many more in the future...
(I have realised that self-patterning sock yarns are really quite spooky and magical
...they never cease to surprise me... ;-) )

(you will only have to work in stocking stitch and the pattern will just evolve....
nothing complicated)

...and this little jacket...
I can see see blue sky, birds, green rolling hills, lakes, horses, sheep and green meadows
(or maybe I've just been knitting too many jackets? ;-) ) 

...each and every little jacket will be unique...

Happy Weekend All

Happy Knitting

Back soon

Hello again....

First, I have to say thank you everyone for the kind comments on my last post 
(which I've just realised was quite a while ago... where does time go these days?
I can't find the answer but it's definitely good to be here in my space again with you...x
During my time away I've received lots of messages about the 
'Little Sock Yarn Bear Jackets' 
...if the pattern is available...or if not when will it be published...

I can finally say that I plan to set up the listings tomorrow and it will be available 
at some point in the next few days...and I'm really looking forward to sharing it x
There'll be an update here on the blog once it's available with all the important details and links.

In the mean time I hope you like the pics everyone
(one thing I've learned knitting all these little jackets is that sock yarns can be a little spooky...
there's definitely some magic woven in along with those colourful patterns!)

Wishing everyone a happy, crafty new week
full of all good things

(I'm looking forward to lots of visiting in the next few days and catching up with you ;-) )

Back (very) soon

 ...this week... 
my snapshots have shouted out one resounding word
'kindness' of which I've definitely been the most lucky recipient x
 My beautiful girls making sure I had the perfect Mother's day best cake (ever!)...
.....whisking away the worries of a difficult week...
 An unexpected parcel arriving in the post from Alison of 
(maker of beautiful tiny wooden buttons which decorate my little bear jackets and shoes)
I now have my very own custom made needle gauge...
...such a surprise!...
Thank you so much Alison x
(and it now holds pride of place on my work room shelf)

Thank you too blog friends 
for taking the time to visit my corner here
and for all the kind comments ...especially recently over those little bear jackets! ;-)
...I do love this creative world we all inhabit x

...and chance yesterday...
on my Instagram travels I came across this quote 
which summed up my thoughts this week...

'Kindness - that simple word. 
To be kind - it covers everything, to my mind. 
If you're kind that's it.'

Roald Dahl

Happy New Week All
