Wool, Wiltshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

Yarn Along!

I knitted the second cottage.


So there we have the complete Village Project.


Pattern is by a firm called Knitwell and the pattern is in a booklet called Oddments 558. I can’t find it on their webpage, but I have had it a very very very very very LONG time.

But wait..


Mary? Whatever is the matter? Your lamb?


On the Green and near the road. However did that happen? Boy Blue were you asleep?


Never! But who is that roaring down the road. Little Miss F in her car.


Stop Please Little Miss F.


And she did.


Phew said Little Boy Blue.


PHEW said Mary


Baa said the lamb.


Now how on earth do I wrap that lot for Little Miss F?

Figures are from the patterns of Jean Greenhowe


I am reading my way through the alphabet. I had reached an author beginning with J. I was reading Henry James and What Maisie Knew. Let’s just say I didn’t get on with this book. Me and Henry James just aren’t meant to be. After 200 pages I couldn’t face one more word. So I read the book I had chosen for K. The Secret Life of Bees. I had seen the film twice and loved it and I love this book. My favourite read this year.

So back to the library for a new letter J. Now this book was the only one I fancied and I didn’t have high hopes for it. Think Bridget Jones younger sister goes to Canada.Β  But I am really enjoying it, pure fantasy but with some interesting themes to make you think.

  1. This was such an interesting creation. Very cute and very clever.

  2. This is just so delightful! I love it! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  3. Just love it!!!!! Once I started knitting a farm, but never finished it! Your village is so nice!

  4. Brilliant! Love your village and the little story! 😊

  5. Haha brilliant knitting!

  6. Thanks so much everyone for your lovely comments. Happy girl picture to follow on Wednesday

  7. Wow! Your little village project is amazing!! I don’t think (in fact I’m sure) I would have the patience to knit, sew together, stuff and embellish all those little items. Wonderful!! And I, too loved the Secret Life of Bees… xoxo Silke

  8. That village turned out amazing! Such attention to detail! And I loved Secret Life of Bees, too. Do you like mysteries? P.D. James wrote British mystery classics and her name starts with a J!

    How cute!!

  10. oh, I love the village and all the details! Miss F is lucky lucky. But what I love most of all? The pompom trees – so cute, so brilliant!

  11. Love the present…I would wrap it into several smaller packages and give them to her in order so it builds as she unwraps. πŸ™‚ and I know a wonderful author for the letter H you might think about. Kristin Heitzmann

  12. What a lovely story and great present. I hadn’t realised it was a pattern out of a book but you have put it together beautifully and the added characters are such fun!

  13. Fantastic!!! My favourite is the car, but the whole project and the story to go with it is really lovely. Full of admiration!

  14. Absolutely charming! And what a wonderful gift. πŸ˜‰

  15. How cute!!! I love the little one in her car. She will adore it all.

  16. Love your little story and what patience to knit all those teensy things and then stuff them. Toy stuffing and me don’t mix.
    I loved The Secret Life of Bees and bought it for my Kindle when it was about 99p – I’d never heard of it and had no great expectations. I’ve not seen the film but I will seek it out now.

  17. Wow! What a gift that will be for miss F. I would pack each one in a little box and put them all in a big box for lots of unwrapping. I’m the devilish sort of wrapper. Loved “The secret life of bees” Haven’t read the other and won’t now. I hate slogging through books. If they don’t get me right away, I give them back. Too many surprisingly delicious books out there.

  18. Your village project is just lovely!

  19. wow that was close shave for Mary’s sheep!
    Brilliant knitting!
