Little Red Riding Hood

Hello Everyone!

I’ve told you before about my knitting for my local children’s cancer hospital and the fact that once a year, I put the dolls up for sale. Throughout the years family and friends have kindly bought them for themselves, family members or to donate to the hospital.

As time went by and more types of dolls became available, people started to order dolls.
The doll described in this blog post is one of those. Last year, around Christmas, I knitted a doll dressed in red clothes. My sister liked her so much, she wanted one of her own. When I was at her place on New Year’s Eve, she gave me “instructions” as to what she wanted her doll to look like. It turned out quite a different doll from the red clothed one but we still decided to call her Little Red Riding Hood.

Of course you can make this doll in the colours of your choice. Just make sure your knitting needles match the thickness of your yarn. I used 2.5 mm needles. The thicker your needles, the bigger your doll will be.

Maybe you have someone near to you who would love to have one? A perfect reason to try the pattern below.

Happy knitting!

Vlaai

Hello Everyone!

“Vlaai” is a sweet speciality in Flanders. Each region/city has its own version and each family has added something to it or left something out. The one must be included ingredient is “peperkoek” which is best described as gingerbread without ginger.

I learned how to make it by my grandmother and mother and am happy to share the recipe.

I hope you’ll try it.

Happy baking!

Owly & Owlivia

Hello Everyone!

It’s been a while since my last crochet pattern, so I thought it was high time to present you another one.

The pattern in this post is a variation on the owl family I made a while ago. It’s one for a patchwork brother and sister.

These owls are easy and quick to make. Ideal for a last minute project (or make several when you have more time).

They are crafted in Schachenmayr’s Catania with crochet needle 3. You can adapt the colours to the room the toys will be in, the favourite colours of the recipient.

Have a go at them, they’re fun to make!

Happy crocheting!
