Blog Shop

I've decided to set up a little blog shop for people to buy from me directly via paypal or credit card rather than having to sign up for an etsy account.

Just follow these simple steps:
1. Choose how many patterns you would like from the drop down menu in the sidebar.
2. Click 'Buy Now'
3. Sign into your paypal account
4. Remember to leave a 'note to seller' telling me which pattern(s) you would like
5. Click pay

All prices are in US Dollars so to check the price in your own currency use this currency convertor .

Your patterns will be delivered to your paypal email address (unless another email address is stated) in PDF format within 24 hours of payment. you will need adobe reader to view the patterns which you can download for free at

Pattern cannot be refunded once they have been sent, so always double check your order.

If your having any problems with the blog shop or would like to order more than 10 patterns please email me, I'm always happy to help out.

Jelly Bums Zebra

I am so pleased to finally get around to posting about this little guy as he seemed to take an age to create. As you can see we have an inconspicuous stripey friend.... a little Zebra.

The reason he took so long was because I couldn't make up my mind about his hair. At first I threaded all his hair with knots and it took forever and in the end I didn't like the way it looked so I gave him a haircut! Once it was all off I decided on just knitting the mane as one piece, and I love how it turned out, he looks like a little punk with a mo-hawk from the side.
I've had so much fun creating these little guys in the past few months, however this pattern will be the last one before the new year as I'm taking a break from pattern writing over the holiday season, don't worry though I'll still around to send out an orders.
I hope everyone is having fun knitting their little Jelly Bums for loved ones this Christmas, and if you do knit one please take some pictures for me and upload them onto the Jelly Bums flickr group because I really do love to see them.
So I'll pop off for now, and in the mean time have a lovely holiday season and try not to stress out too much (I know, easier said than done!).

Give-Away Winner

Ok first off I wanted to thank everyone who left a comment for the give-away yesterday I loved reading each and every one of the 133 comments left! I can't believe the response, it was such a great event to take part in.

Here are the results from the random number generator thingy ma-bob:

So congratulations to Eema-le who was comment number 25, I have sent out your patterns so you can get started on some stocking fillers for those little kiddywinks a.s.a.p.
Ok now my little bit of excitement is over with, I'm going to get cracking with the upcoming pattern, it's driving me a little bit nuts as I making little tweaks here and there so it's taking a little longer than expected. I'm hoping to have it out by the middle of next week at the latest. as this pattern has taken a little longer it will probably be the last one I'll be making this year, to give myself a break and then I'll be back to working on that long list of animals after the holiday season.
So check back soon to see the newbie animal.
