I started off thinking I would design a small farm set, but did not get much further than Derek. He is a very cheery donkey. I think Eeyore may have given donkeys a bit of a reputation for being depressed. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knitting SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 7 - 8 cm COLORWAY brown or grey

The inspiration for my knitting patterns often comes from nature. I love little knitting projects, and try my hardest to be realistic with my plant and animal designs. Often my projects start from something very personal: my own house or my husband's first car. Then I develop them into something that I think will be appealing. I live on the outskirts of London, and work part-time at a local school. My own children are always doing something creative. At school I love the days when we get really messy.
