Peppy the Penguin

Introducing Peppy the Penguin!

PenguinI knitted this guy up just before Christmas using #6 needles and some yarn in my stash.  He came out taller than I expected at almost 7 inches, but was worth the effort. My favorite feature is the little feet that allow him to stand on his own.

If you would like to knit up a cute penguin, the pattern can be found here.



While the box of items for Craft Hope has left the house. I still have several items to share with you.  Today’s project is the Circle Chain Hat by Megan Poteete – Johnson.

Circle Hat

I found this pattern on Ravelry. So after I had completed my goal of twelve hats, I knew I wanted to try something a little more than your basic hat. This hat knitted up fairly quickly and the band of circles in a contrasting color made it a little special. I used more of my Red Heart Super Saver Yarn from my stash. The hat was a little small, based on my gauge it should fit the average 8-year-old. But was a little tight on my foam hat head.

If you would like to knit this yourself the pattern can be found for free here.

One Fish, Two Fish…

I know I have been awol lately. I just can’t seem to get in the grove of life.

But I do have a project to share with you.


The pattern is another one from Stana’s Critters. You may remember the Teddy Blanket and the Puppy Blanket that I made using her patterns. For this project you will need two different colors of yarn.


If you would like more info on this cute fish, the pattern is available here.
