I've been a fan of Julies blog and knitting for some time.
Julie designs and makes the most amazing animals; delightful creations full of personality and chutzpah.
I am constantly at awe at her skill and creativity.
I mean how good are these! And look even more tiny toys for the animals. Amazing!
Julie also sells the patterns to these lovely animals so you can knit them yourselves -something way beyond my ability to do.
So - and here's the weird and totally lovely thing; after a day discussing with various family members, my fathers move to palliative care I was stressed and upset. I went to bed and spent a surprisingly peaceful night dreaming of knitting these animals - complete with a Halloween theme of pumpkins, black capes and miniature burning horned skulls knitted in red angora to mimic flames.
I know! I was surprised too - I love the randomness and bizarre accuracy of dreams.
So thank you Julie for a peaceful nights sleep and a wonderfully surreal dream.
