I started designing knitting patterns for the dolls house in 12th scale many years ago. I found patterns online but they were so intricate and took so long to make that I decided to come up with my own patterns that were easier to knit.
This was my very first pattern:
Now nearly 10 years later strangely this is still my most popular pattern! I have sold 2 copies through Ravelry in the last 2 days alone.
I have designed many many patterns since then, some are free ones on this blog, and some are available as kits.
The bedspread is my favourite design, although I love knitting tiny sweaters.

So beeptwo and I ventured into craft fairs again last weekend and displayed buttons, ribbons, card making goods and dolls house knitting.
We were really lucky that the weather was kind with no rain although it was very windy and we spent a lot of time holding onto things. There was an initial tussle with a gazebo that I won't go in to but we got set up eventually.
It wasn't perhaps the best time of year or venue for our goods but there was enough of a profit to call it a success. Will we be doing another one later in the year? We will see.
Anna has a knitting pattern coming out in Knit Now at the end of August (on the cover this time), with another due for publication later in the year, so she is busy as always.
