Knitted Flamingo

Flamingos are popular with every little girl I know at the moment, and there appears to be a flamingo on most things from bed covers to wallpaper. And so with a knitted flamingo to accompany the knitted unicorn and knitted rainbow, I think any little girls’ bedroom collection will now be complete.

Wondering where you can fit in the time?

Often it's about making time, and if you really want to do it there is always a way. However, even with work, household jobs and children's busy schedules, here's how you can squeeze in that half an hour. (Opens in new tab...)

Here is some more encouragement!

"Don't just think about the destination, enjoy the journey." Read more on how knitting itself is great in a lot of ways. (Opens in new tab...)

I aim to have a new pattern up on the website every few weeks (children and their busy schedules permitting!) and I'll let you know as soon as the next one is up and ready to go...
