Jelly Bums Moose

There's a moose loose aboot the hoose!
Hey all, I'm back to introduce the latest addition to the Jelly Bums an adorable moose. He's been available to purchase since Tuesday however blogger has been playing up and I've been unable to post about him. His horns were a bit of a nightmare to design, but I got there in the end and I love the way they turned out, plus its always great to have a design challenge with a pattern, it makes the whole process more exciting.
Nothing much to report from this side of the pond as I'm pretty under the weather with some sort of virus as the moment so not feeling to great. However I'm not going to let that get me down as I really want to get cracking with some more patterns as I've got a lot of ideas running through my head at the moment, so I can't wait to get them down on paper (or should that be computer?).
The next pattern will be the 20th pattern still can't believe how quickly it seems to have gone and doesn't feel that long ago that I was creating the very first little doggy pattern. The only problem now is deciding what animal to design next!

Just popping my head in

I'm back again!
Apologies for my long unexplained absence, the last month has just gone a bit haywire. At the start of the month we had a big scare when Evie pulled down a cup of coffee from the counter and scolded herself, resulting in a 5 day stay in the hospital. We were so happy once Evie was allowed home and then it turned out that Lois had caught a viral infection which meant lots of projectile vomiting etc... mmm not nice but you get the idea. It was an awful time and unfortunately has taken the whole family a good whilst to recover and get back into routines etc. I just wanted to say a huge thank you to all of those who sent the girls their get well thoughts and also thank you all for being so patient with me sending out patterns and answering questions.
Obviously the knitting went on the back burner the last few weeks, however now that the girls are all better now I've got back on to it. The next pattern should be out by Tuesday at the latest as I'm still making final touches to everything. I can't believe it will be the 19th pattern, I'm really in the knitting 'zone' at the moment so I'll have to get cracking with more patterns whilst I'm there.
Also thought I'd let you know that I've eventually plucked up the courage to start crocheting! Its actually a lot easier than I thought but I'm still learning, you never know there might even be some Jelly Bum crochet patterns in the pipeline!
Hope your all having a lovely weekend and pop back to see the latest pattern soon.
