Cutie Pampootie Hooties – crocheted owl keyrings
Say Hello to two Cutie Hooties. These little owls will be winging their way Down Under – a commission for two little girls in Australia. Another fun crochet project, and a variation on this pattern from Ravelry. Check it out. Hope Rachel and Jenny like them…

It’s all very exciting here at Pampootie Towers. Pampootie products are now on sale at the fabulous Formality design shop in Dublin, just in time for Christmas too. Mini hot water bottles, flower peg kits and flower tape measures are all selling like hot cakes! Very exciting, I’m thrilled that Pampootie is so popular with Formality customers. Thank you to the lovely Karl and Patrick…
A happy retirement cake for my Uncle Pat who finished work recently. Lots of fun making this – slightly complicated to work out all the details, but I’m really happy with how it worked out. Fancy a slice, anyone?
Here’s a pretty shawl I knitted for my Mum. It has gorgeous cascading ruffles, so you can wear it several ways. If you fancy knitting one yourself, check out the free pattern here. It’s very easy, knits up quickly so you’ll soon have a beautiful flouncy shawl of your very own.
Knitted, crocheted and beaded for friend Berni’s 40th birthday. Kinda dinky, kinda fun.
Knitted from a Teva Durham pattern, this was a Christmas gift for my Mum. She loves this and wears it a lot – especially when walking as her arms get chilly. She also wears it as a scarf with the sleeves wrapped round her neck – versatile or what!!
Here’s the latest shrug from my needles – a Christmas present for Mum. It’s Stephanie Japel’s shrug from ‘Fitted Knits’. My first attempt at ‘top down’ knitting and it’s so easy. I used one colour, rather than two as the pattern suggests and instead added some gauzy kid silk haze to the edges for a delicate look.
I’m really pleased with it and Mum is too. More pics on Ravelry.
A little zippy knitted purse insipred by the green and pink flowers on the piece of vintage fabric used to line it. This gorgeous fabric came from my Grandma some years ago and I’ve always loved it and wanted to make something pretty with it.
