Jelly Bums Giraffe

After a few days of knitting (and mostly frogging) the latest pattern picked by Michelle T in the very first Jelly Bums competition, It's eventually finished and I'm proud to present a little giraffe.

The pattern was a nice challenge as it required a whole chart design for the body and neck, plus the addition of the long neck. I think he is super cute and he seemed to be in demand before he was even created. Out of the 92 entries for the competition a giraffe was selected as the most wanted pattern with 17 entries. So if you want to get your mitts on your very own little giraffe he is now available as a single pattern and also part of the pattern deals from my etsy shop.
So for now I'll dash off to get working on another new pattern, and I'll see you all back here in a few days for the pattern reveal.
Take Care

Jelly Bums Bear

I would like to start this post by saying a huge thank you to all the people who have entered the competition so far, your kind words and comments have bowled me over thank you so much. It's really interesting to see what animals everyone is requesting, there is quite a variety although there are one or two which are being requested a lot. Remember the competition is still running until Friday, and the winners will be emailed to let them know they have won, but I'll announce it on here too, so fingers crossed everyone.

OK so as promised I have another new pattern albeit a week late! Its a little bear, don't worry though he is far from grizzly, as usual he is now available from my etsy shop as a single pattern or any of the pattern deals.

Jelly Bum Bears cuddly little fellows. They may seem scary but they are actually really shy and easily scared, so they need to be loved and protected. They are very loyal and will always defend the ones they love most. They love nothing more than sniffing out delicious food and gobbling up anything they find, so don't let them near your kitchen or you may find yourself eaten out of house and home!
The Bear pattern is also one of the prizes to go to the winner and is eligible to pick as a prize by the runners up. Right, I'm off for now, but I'll be back on Friday to announce the winner, so heave a lovely day/night in your part of the world.

Jelly Bums Lion

Hello all, I'm back again with another new pattern. This time we have a little Lion, isn't he adorable!

Jelly Bum Lions are proud little creatures. They love to spend time with their family 'pride' and they always hunt, rest and play together. They are little softies at heart and love nothing more than a little bit of sunbathing on a hot day.
I'm really happy with how this little guy turned out, he looks really sweet. I'll get started on another pattern either tomorrow or Wednesday so check back to see who will be the newest addition to the Jelly Bum zoo.

Jelly Bums Elephant

Another day, another new pattern. This time I'm proud to introduce you to the Jelly Bum elephant, the pattern is now available from my etsy shop.

Jelly Bum elephants are very wise and intelligent creatures. They are very family orientated so you'll have to knit up a whole herd of them so they don't feel lonely. They like to talk to each other with their 'trumpet-like' calls and their favourite hang out is wallowing around waterholes whilst their playful little ones grab each others tails.
I eventually finished my little ear flap hat for my little girl, it turned out really well but I think I'm going to remake it with some chunkier yarn so its nice and cosy. In other needle news I'm trying to finish off a Sheldon for my eldest daughter who took a shine to the first one I knitted which was blue. So as she has a penchant for all things purple I decided that would be the perfect colour for her, she only 18 months old and is chomping at the bit for it as she keeps trying to steal it off my needles!
I'll be back to creating another new pattern this week, I'm not too sure what it will be yet but as usual I promise I'll get pictures up as soon as it's available to buy. So have a nice weekend everyone and happy knitting.

Jelly Bums Monkey

As promised I'm back with another new pattern for you all, it's a little cheeky monkey. He is now available to but from my etsy shop.

Jelly Bum monkeys are mischievous little critters. They extremely fun-loving and especially love to play practical jokes . Bananas are their favourite food and swinging from trees is their favourite pastime. They are very curious, but don't let them get easily bored as they may stir up some trouble!
Ok I'm off to have some me time now that the kids are in bed, and tomorrow I will be starting on another new patterns so keep your eyes peeled for any updates.

Pattern Deals

Hey all,
The first Jellybums animal pattern deal is ready to buy. It's for the first 3 patterns, the pig, the cat and the dog. As the number of patterns increases I will put up the price list for set pattern numbers so the the more you buy the more you save, and you have the choice of which animals you want.

I'm working on the latest pattern just now and I've had it half done for a few days now but got side tracked with knitting a winter hat for my little one as its beginning to get chilly up here in Scotland. So I'll finish off knitting it up today so hopefully the pattern should be ready by the weekend. I'll post here as soon as its available so check back for any updates.
