Fair isle knitting.

I hope Mill does not mind me posting this picture - but I couldn't help myself - it is just too cute!

This is Olive Owl. Mill knitted him (her?) for her mum as a birthday present. Yes Mill is still living in the US (I miss her so much and it feels like forever she has been gone, when really it has only been 7 months [only?!?]!).

This was her first attempt at Fair Isle knitting - and I think she did an amazing job!

Oh if only I could knit half as well as this! Great job Mill!

  1. Awesome! I'm going to send a link from your post to my sister the knitter with a big HINT HINT in the subject line.

  2. Sam: I have problems with my old blog P. O. Designs, don't know how to fix them, so I have created http://podesigns2.blogspot.com, would appreciate you following me there.


  3. That's absolutely adoreable! I love Owls too. Sorry you miss your friend so much. You'll have to save up and have a holiday in the US. I don't know how I've missed your recent posts. Your chair is lovely! My dad had a chair just like it and I used to curl up in it and sleep. You have a great husband.
